In my role as editor-in-chief of upstart publisher Ardden Entertainment, I feel it is my sworn duty to alert you to the fact that Flash Gordon: The Mercy Wars—which collects the acclaimed (and not just by me!) six-issue mini-series by Brendan Deneen and Paul Green—will soon be available. It was a delight to edit the series and to watch Brendan and Paul breathe new life into Alex Raymond’s classic characters. Also coming your way is Flash Gordon: The Secret History of Mongo. This is an anthology of all-new adventures, exploring the rich mythology of Raymond’s universe, with stories provided by yours truly and Shawn McManus, Tom DeFalco and Joe Staton, Joe Casey and Omaha Perez, Denny O’Neil and Mike Cavallaro, Len Wein and Shanth Enjeti, Jim Kreuger and Pedro Delgado and the aforementioned team of Deneen and Green. If you’re a fan of character-driven space opera, I think you’ll enjoy both these collections.
