    What a great way to start the second arc. It's a complex issue that gives fans the opportunity to dive into the science fiction themes of the story while also getting the comedy they have loved getting from this series since the beginning. Parker and team are finding new ways to keep this series interesting while also making it fun for their audience. With so many emotional changes in tone, Flash Gordonis continuously finding new ways to keep its readers on their toes. One thing is for sure: this series is a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Aug 26, 2014

    Flash Gordon #5 is not the zenith the franchise has to offer, but it maintains the level of quality that this re-imagining has enjoyed thus far. It impresses from beginning to end as it comes recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 1, 2014

    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.

    I was really looking forward to this issue, which is probably why my feeling of disappointment is so strong. However, it was tempered somewhat by the second half of the issue, giving me hope for the next instalment. Read Full Review
