Exclusive First Look: MERCILESS - THE RISE OF MING #4

Ming continues his rise to power and becoming the ruler of Mongo.

When it comes to evil villains, only a few can truly rise to the top of the list as being utterly cruel and vile. Most villains end up looking like chumps after their countless defeats but then you have ones like Ming the Merciless.

Dynamite Entertainment recently relaunched the Flash Gordon franchise and for the first time, we'll get to find out more about Ming. Dynamite has given us an exclusive first look at MERCILESS: THE RISE OF MING #4, on sale in July.

Cover by ALEX ROSS

To cement his claim of power, Ming the Merciless launches a strategic war that shows once and for all that there is but one superpower on Mongo! But as Ming turns his attentions to new worlds to conquer, a betrayal within his own court might topple all of Ming's carefully wrought plans! And what does a strange signal from a distant planet mean to the future of Mongo?

Looks pretty darn cool. Ming is one of the all-time classic villains.

He likes to play with things a while... before annihilation.
