In April, Dynamite Entertainment will release a new Flash Gordon comic series. A spin-off of the current Kings Watch mini-series, Flash Gordon #1 will re-introduce Flash with other King Features Syndicate characters like The Phantom and Mandrake the Magician.
Written by Kings Watch writer Jeff Parker, with art by Evan “Doc” Shaner and colors from Jordie Bellaire, Flash Gordon #1 will include Dale Arden, Dr. Hans Zarkov, Ming the Merciless and Flash as he journeys to the planet Mongo.
“We’re bringing Flash back for a new audience,” said Jeff Parker about the new monthly series. “It’s over-the-planet high action and adventure where Flash’s spirit and optimism are as powerful as anything the forces of Ming the Merciless can dish out.”
Flash Gordon #1 will feature cover variants by: Gabriel Hardman, Jonathan Case, Declan Shalvey, and Marc Laming. There will be a Stephen Mooney 80th Anniversary Cover, a Ken Haeser Subscription-Only Variant Cover of “Li’l Flash” and a blank Authentix Cover.
Flash Gordon #1 is slated for release digitally and print on April 9, 2014. The comic will be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse and Dark Horse Digital.
