    Flash Gordon continues to please on all fronts. Parker and company take things back down a notch to allow for some straight space faring intrigue, but things are continuing to build in the fight against Ming. Unsurprisingly, the next leg of Gordon's journey is off to a great start. Read Full Review

    Shaner builds more into the universe around Gordon, Arden and Zarkov as he introduces the Skyrens, the Hawkmen and many other inhabitants of Sky World. "Flash Gordon" #5 provides plenty of breathtaking moments, despite some hiccups, and continues to offer fun, exciting science fiction adventures without burdensome crossovers or oppressive backstory. Parker, Shaner, Jarrell, Case, Bellaire, Bowland and Cosby (with Laming on covers) are presenting a sparkling homage to a beloved character. This may not be the strongest of issues, technically, but it is certainly a fun read that gives fans plenty of the good stuff only comic books can deliver, from unlimited special effects to mind-numbing comic science.
