By the Power of Grayskull and the Great Eye of Thundera! The 1980s popular toy and cartoon franchises He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and Thundercats are about to cross over in an epic comic book mini-series.

DC Comics is readying a He-Man/Thundercats six-issue limited series to launch in October. The story will be penned by Mattel head writer and Masters of the Universe lead creative Rob David and supervising producer Lloyd Goldfine. Freddie E. Williams II, who recently wrapped the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover, will be on art duties.

This will mark the first time EVER that the worlds of He-Man and Thundercats will collide. I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t be more excited about this. #BestChildhoodMemoriesEver.

Rob David said: “For everyone out there who took different action figures and teamed them up to take on the world, this one’s for you,” with Goldfine adding “Writing this crossover event is the thrill of a lifetime, and Rob and I can’t wait to get started...You don’t wait 30 years and not go big!”

Here’s the official synopsis for the event mini-series:

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe team up with the ThunderCats—the epic crossover event you’ve waited thirty years to see! In his ever-living desire to destroy the mighty ThunderCats, Mumm-Ra quests for a weapon that can rival the legendary Sword of Omens: He-Man’s Sword of Power! But his dimension-spanning scheme kick starts a cataclysmic crisis that will embroil heroes and villains—Masters, Mutants and ThunderCats—in a mind-blowing six-part saga!

He-Man/Thundercats #1 will arrive in comic book stores on Oct. 5.
