Rusty's World

Rusty’s Year in Comics 2015 | June 14, 2015

FlashGordonTHeManFromEarth

Flash Gordon was never something that resonated with me. Other than seeing that pretty awful movie when I was a kid, it was just something that I was aware of, like many of the earlier characters – like Tarzan or Doc Savage.

This technically an ‘omnibus’ because it also includes an annual and a holiday special that weren’t part of the Parker mini. The Annual was very good but the holiday special was a little… well, the art was good.

This leads to my complaint about the volume… credits. There is a list of writers and artists in the front but they are not broken now by the many mini stories in the back. Some I know, but I really would have preferred having the credits outlined a little better.

Overall, a good, fun, read.

Jeff Parker does a really good job to make him interesting, though. Honestly, it may be Dake and Zarkov who really steal the show… not to mention the supporting characters like Vultan.
