    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Nov 30, 2011

    Do you know who Flash Gordon is? Whether you're familiar with the character and property or don't know a thing about him, this comic will give you all that you need to get hooked. With a feeling of a grand adventure set in the 1930s, this is what a Flash Gordon story should be like. Eric Trautmann does a great job setting everything up for new and old readers and Daniel Indro's art is something that should be seen by everyone. It's great having a comic you can jump into and not have to worry about loads of other titles having ties to the story. In a sense, it's a great escape. With the first issue at a dollar, it's the perfect opportunity to try something different. Dynamite has done it again with this revival of an old familiar franchise. I can't wait to read more.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Nov 28, 2011

    Flash (AAAAAHHHH!) will save every one of us! And he's gonna do it in the pages of Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist. The introductory issue is pretty solid as far as first issues go as we're introduced to the key characters, the antagonist, and the world of the future (cira the 1930s). I like that the story takes pieces from the source, and adds a bit of its own flair. The art is solid, though overuse of the color red tends to make the pages seem muddy. For a dollar, there's really no reason not to pick up this first issue, and once you do, you soon discover the story sucks you in. Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist #1 earns 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    You really can't expect much for a dollar these days, but Zeitgeist delivers nonetheless. This is a promising start to Dynamite's latest attempt to revive a classic comic icon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Ryan K. Lindsay Dec 1, 2011

    If you like Flash Gordon, be it the two-fisted strip character or the campy 80s icon, this comic will hold some value for you, especially at an introductory lure of $1. The action on display is breezy and fun. It's a shame the art can't stand up steady on both legs as it shudders across pages, working well in some aspects and boring holes into your head with others. The hook at the end of this issue should be enough to lure most people back for the next issue and that's Dynamite's best choice. There's only room left to progress forward and tell something new and interesting. Here's hoping they succeed. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Dec 2, 2011

    Dynamite has a tendency to tell very slow stories. This appears to be of a similar style as Flash and company don't officially land on Mongo in this issue. I'm willing to give the second issue a try, mostly on the strength of the final page's twist. For a dollar you should give this book a shot because you might enjoy this take on the Flash Gordon story. I found the book to be a fairly average comic, though. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 7, 2011

    For a $1 it's an interesting, and more than a little bizarre, introduction. However, at $4 a pop (which will be the regular monthly price of all future issues) it's far less tantalizing. I'm also very mixed on the art by Daniel Indro which feels muddy and rushed in several panels. Worth a look (but only for this price). Read Full Review
