Flash Gordon #1: The Reviews Are In

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

The reviews of Flash Gordon #1 by Dynamite Entertainment are pouring in … and Flash Gordon is RED HOT and No. 1 with comics fans and critics!

IGN scores Flash Gordon #1 with a 9.5 this week, the top ranking in their review scoring system!

“If you are starting a list of best comics of 2014, make sure you leave room for Flash Gordon #1. Jeff Parker, Evan Shaner, Jordie Bellaire and editorial overlord Nate Cosby deliver one of the best comics in recent memory. It’s big, crazy and absolute fun from start to finish. There’s not enough adventure in comics these days, so we should be thankful when a comic like Flash Gordon comes around. Whether you’re a fan of the character from way back or just jumping on board now, you’ll find a lot to love here. We need issue #2 and we need it now.” Final Score: 9.5


Congratulations to Jeff Parker and Evan “Doc” Shaner, the masterminds behind this incredible series! Many thanks to Nick Barrucci of Dynamite Entertainment for being a great partner and tireless champion of the latest Flash Gordon release!
