I like where Dynamite is heading.

And Flash is really really old.

Edited by Perfect 10

nothing of interest: no red sonja, dejah thoris, vampirella or damsels

I like where Dynamite is heading.

Me too. And did the shadow cover pay homage to the detective comics #27? Also what's up with so many variant comics? Oh well. Green Hornet & Flash Gordon are what really interest me. I mean 80 years god damn that's old.

@2cool4fun: Looks like a very well made homage cover.

Ehh, nothing here.

Dynamite is striking me as totally unorganized. Where are all the rest of their comics? Even their website is a mess...

Posted by rasx

On this list just Flash Gordon.

Posted by MaccyD

What happened to Lord of the Jungle, Warlord of mars or Red Sonja?

Otherwise, love the retailer variant for Flash Gordon.

I was thinking about checking out Doc Savage and maybe this new Flash Gordon series.
