THE Comic Vine Review by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero

If you ever seen Flash Gordon in animated, live-action or printed form, you will be in for a treat. If you're not familiar with the characters, get ready to meet them for the first time.

Whether you've read any of Flash Gordon's old exploits or watched the 80s movie or various animated attempts, the idea is known to pretty much everyone. Flash Gordon is a normal human who has been placed in a situation to save Earth from invaders.

The Good
Dynamite has revived several franchises over the years and many have been with great success. While I was never a true die-hard Flash Gordon fan, I became more than familiar with the characters due to the different portrayals over the years. I've enjoyed the different revivals Dynamite has taken with old properties and thought I'd give this series a shot, mainly due to Francesco Francavilla's involvement with the variant covers. I was more than pleasantly surprised.

The first wise decision was to keep this grounded in the original time period of 1934. The issue captures the feeling of what a Flash Gordon story should be like. The art is amazing. Daniel Indro is a name you should take note of. He gives that painted feel full of detail yet still remains true to the pulp-feel of the time period. Check out the first five pages below.For the full review visit Comic Vine!

Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Suicide Squad | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Killer Croc appears to be the latest DC Comicsvillain in Warner Bros.' "Suicide Squad"ensemble: The Wrap reports that Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has been cast as the well-known Batman adversary, one of multiple DC villains set to appear in the 2016 film.

The Wrap states representatives for Warner Bros. and Akinnuoye-Agbaje did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Additionally, the outlet reports that Karen Fukuhara -- with no listed IMDb credits, presumably a Hollywood newcomer -- has been cast in an as-yet undisclosed role.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje has a long history in genre fare, famously appearing as Mr. Eko on "Lost," along with roles in "The Mummy Returns," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and "Thor: The Dark World."

He appears with "Suicide Squad" star Will Smith in "Concussion," a sports film scheduled for release late this year.

Scott Eastwood Confirms Suicide Squad Role

Scott Eastwood is hanging up his cowboy hat and heading to the DC Comics world.

The 29-year-old actor stated once and for all that he will appear in the upcoming supervillain film Suicide Squad – although his character remains a mystery.

"I'm doing a movie called Suicide Squad," Eastwood toldEntertainment Tonight on Monday, confirming the ongoing speculation.

The actor, who is actor-director Clint Eastwood's son, is straying far from his latest romance drama role, in Nicholas Sparks' The Longest Ride, in which he plays a professional bull rider dating a college student.

Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters summer 2016.

As luck would have it, comic book legend Stan Lee is bringing "a different kind of superhero show" to television. Produced by UK broadcaster Sky, "Lucky Man" sees a troubled cop given the power to control chance.

The new show is conceived by Lee and stars James Nesbitt, previously seen as Bofur the dwarf in "The Hobbit" movies and as the titular split-personality in Steven Moffat's "Jekyll".

He plays DI Harry Clayton, a troubled detective with a gambling problem and a wife and kid who've left him -- how novel! Into this innovative set-up comes a mysterious woman who gives Harry an ancient bracelet that controls luck, with no doubt exciting consequences.

Co-creator of Lobo and writer for Marvel, DC and many animation and video game projects, Roger Slifer, passed away today. The 60-year old Slifer, who was still recovering from being seriously injured in a hit and run in 2012, died while on his way from the nursing home to the emergency room.

His sister Connie Carlton notified his friends and fans on his Facebook page today.

Slifer worked at Marvel in the mid-70s as a writer and assistant editor but moved to DC as the 80s began. He worked as their first sales manager to the direct market as well as writing Omega Men where he created Lobo with Keith Giffen. He worked on multiple animation projects including Jem and the Holograms, Transformers and GI Joe Extreme.

The hit and run, which took place in Santa Monica, left the writer in critical condition with broken bones and a traumatic brain injury. Slifer was comatose for nearly a month. No arrests have been made involving the case.

Dynamic Forces sends its condolences to his family and fans.

NANCY A COLLINS TALKS ABOUT SWORDS OF SORROW: VAMPIRELLA & JENNIFER BLOOD

Dynamite’s new summer event Swords of Sorrow hasn’t even kicked off yet and we have writer Nancy A Collins talking about the second issue of her Swords of Sorrow: Vampirella / Jennifer Blood miniseries. Byron Brewer asked Collins what readers need to know to jump in on the series. Cover by Billy Tan.

SoSVampiJB002CovATan

BYRON BREWER: OK, we in June are into the second issue of this great miniseries which is part of Dynamite’s salute of its wonderful female heroes. What do we need to know if we are a new reader just jumping on here? (You know how those #1’s vanish!)

NANCY COLLINS: Vampirella has been taken from her world and is now trapped in that of Jennifer Blood—which bears a close resemblance to our reality, in that the supernatural does not exist. Both Vampirella and Jennifer are in possession of strange swords given to them by a mysterious figure called The Courier on behalf of an even more mysterious figure called The Traveller, but neither of them have any idea as to what the swords can do or why they have been given them.

BB: Whoever thought that a world WITHOUT monsters would be a problem for Vampi, and yet here it is … as well as where her next meal is coming from. Explain.

NC: Vampirella is defined as a monster-fighter/vampire-hunter. But without such creatures to battle, she’s reduced to being a vampire in a world full of humans. All her friends and allies–such as her manservant Coleridge, her lover Tristan, and The Kabal– are back in her world. She is completely on her own for the first time in her life—and in a world that doesn’t believe creatures like her exist. As for where her next meal is coming from–Vampirella usually travels with her own supply of bottled blood, which she uses to keep from preying on humans. However, her private blood bank is literally a world away right now, so figuring out how to feed herself is quickly becoming a real problem.

BB: Who are Los Muertos and what do they have to do with Jennifer Blood? And there are copycats lurking about?

NC: Los Muertos is a narco-gang operating out of Los Angeles. They’re in the business of manufacturing and peddling meth, among other things. Their leaders are a pair of brothers who go by the names Calavera and Pulque. In keeping with the Jennifer Blood universe—which is firmly rooted in a hyper-violent version of “reality”—they and their followers are brutal and hyper-violent thugs who paint their faces to resemble the decorated sugar skulls that are a part of the Dia de los Muertos celebration. And, yes, there are always Jennifer Blood copycats. Which is to be expected, seeing how she is the most famous killer in the world.

BB: Speaking of Blood copycats, why does one resemble … Vampirella?

NC: Sorry, you’ll have to read the series to find that out!

BB: Oooo-kay. Moving alone: What does artist Dave Acosta bring to the table here? How does he rank with all the other Vampi artists with whom you have worked?

NC: Dave is great! He draws both Vampi and Jennifer Blood as bad-ass, powerful heroines who happen to be beautiful, and does so without posing them like Escher-woman. He has a clean line and flare for panel design that is elegant yet uncluttered, which I find well suited for a story like this one, which combines both atmosphere and action

BB: Is a Jen/Vampi team-up in the cards for this mini?

NC: Definitely—but it won’t come easy.
