Editor's Dispatch: Flashtastic!

I have loved Flash Gordon from the time I was a tiny child and my best friend's dad gave me a collection of some of the old Buster Crabbe serials when I was about seven years old. When I got older and was more able to appreciate comic art, I was blown away by Alex Raymond's lush illustrations of his space-fantasy.

So I'm very excited that there are a TON of cool things to tell you about Flash Gordon right now! Keep Reading

Editor's Dispatch: Happy Father's Day!

I know Father's Day was yesterday, but we don't do Sunday features here, so I wanted to take today to just say that I hope all the dads reading had a great day! My dad is the person who first got me into reading comics-- he is a lifelong fan of the funny pages, and I fondly remember "reading" the Sunday comics with him before I was old enough to read. So thanks to fathers everywhere!!! Keep Reading
