    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 7, 2016

    Flash Gordon: Kings Cross is a book that's just plain fun. It has all the right elements from the original works in its own way while managing them with modern storytelling and character quirks so that it feels fresh and fun. Parker definitely handles the dialogue well and while he may be moving things at a really brisk pace, he's delivering some really fun things. All of it is elevated thanks to Jesse Hamm's artwork as it's just an absolute blast to take in, especially the facial expressions and the creativity in the creature design. Very fun stuff all around and hopefully things stay alive long enough in the next issue for there to be more! Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Laramie Martinez Dec 8, 2016

    If you want a break from grimdark narratives, with brooding heroes draped in shadows, pick up this issue. You'll probably find that special something that got you into comics as a kid. Maybe it was rip-roaring adventure, maybe it was over the top villains, or maybe it was just the art. What ever it was, this issue will have it. Or at the very least it will change the way you feel about the definition of a spider monkey. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Ira Downing Nov 28, 2016

    Not the greatest work, not earth-shattering great, but certainly not bad. If your into indie books this one is for you. Like good indie books it reads like and adventure story not a superhero tale. You'll be hooked into what's going on and why. Read Full Review
