    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Feb 3, 2013

    For fans of that film, though, this issue in particular is a dream. You see, we're treated to the secret origin of Klytus, the golden armored head of the secret police who so dominated the 1980 flick that he very nearly (but not quite) stole the show from Max von Sydow's Ming. Klytus was created for the film, and, to the best of my knowledge, Zeitgeist has marked his first use in comics, and he's exactly what we'd hope for him to be. Getting his background, as unsurprising as it may be, is...well, I'm almost embarrassed to admit it, but it's almost a dream come true for those of us who love that movie. While Zeitgeist may not hold together for everyone, for those who are already immersed and in love with this particular Flash Gordon aesthetic, it's almost impossible to ignore. Read Full Review

    Because of issues with pacing and scheduling, I'm beginning to believeFlash Gordon: Zeitgeistwillfunctionbetter in a collected format. As I mentioned, Ron Adrian's art style fits perfectly with the rest of the series so far (the continuing presence ofSlamet Mujionoon colors definitely helps with that.) Until then, keep your old issues close to hand for easy reference. Read Full Review
