With the 80th anniversary of the classic comic-book character, Flash Gordon looming, it looks like this grandpa of space heroes is getting another go. It’s been a few years since Flash has had any exposure, but the folks at Dynamite Entertainment have enough faith in him to have put together an entire new comic around the character.
Dynamite is giving a pat on the back to many of their characters as of late, using their Kings Watch mini-series to reintroduce Flash and bring some exposure to other sometimes-forgotten classics such as the Phantom and Mandrake the Magician. Currently, they have Jeff Parker lined up to do the writing and the team of Evan “Doc” Shaner and Jordie Bellaire working in the art and color departments.
So, ff you’re a long-standing fan then it’s good news and if you haven’t checked out Flash Gordon before, now might be the time. Who knows, we might even get another movie out of this.
Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter for the heads-up.
