Reprinting the four-issue miniseries originally published by Image Comics, THE SHARD OF DARKNESS opens as strange events trouble the mighty Masters of the Universe. Determined to unearth the cause of the calamity, the heroic He-Man sets forth on a dangerous quest to end the crisis--but the sinister Skeletor and his merciless minions have other ideas! Writer Val Staples, penciler Emiliano Santalucia, and inker Marco Failla return readers to a world of science and sorcery, as the '80s phenomenon is reborn for a new era!

"We had seen and heard a lot of positive feedback about the Traveler-sized collections from CGE," stated MVCreations President Val Staples. "In a day and age where trades are becoming more and more popular, the Travelers are priced to move, and a brilliant way to give readers a lot of bang for their buck."

"While the Travelers format may be small in size, embracing it as a go-to format is a huge move," stated CrossGen Entertainment Director of Marketing & Communications Bill Rosemann. "Some of the first comics that I ever read as a child were paperback-sized reprints of superhero titles--and my friends and I loved the fact that we could stick them in our book bags. For years readers wondered why publishers didn't bring back this handy option. That's why it's so cool to see CrossGen resurrect and revamp the format with superior printing and paper. And thumbs-up to MVCreations for delivering all-ages adventure in a package that young readers crave!"

MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE vol. 1: THE SHARD OF DARKNESS will be solicited in the CrossGen Entertainment section of the April issue of Diamond Comics Distributors Previews catalog.
