So remember last month, when we learned about the Star Wars/TMNT crossover that almost happened? Well one side, Skywalker, because there's another beloved '80s property that tried to commingle with the Heroes in a Half-Shell: He-Man and the Masters of the Universe!

Artist Freddie Williams II, who did the art for the various Batman/TMNT comics, just broke the news that IDW and DC were working on a He-Man crossover. The book was delayed twice, then fully cancelled over a year ago. And this is the first we've ever heard of it!

There's art of the characters hanging out in interesting and yet thematically appropriate combos:

And it looks like it would have been a lot like the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic, with the Turtles taking on the roles and appearances of the He-Man characters:

They'd even gotten to the point of designing some covers; one an homage to the first meeting of the X-Men and the New Teen Titans, the other a two-parter (suggesting this was going to be a very mini series.

We don't know why the book was cancelled, but how cool would it have been to get toys based on this concept?
