Or – “I Decided To Trick Or Treat With My Kid Instead… Sorry.”
The MUSIC MEEEISSSSTERRRR! Sing the song that the world wants to heeeear! Man, I’ve had that stuck in my head for WEEKS, now. This particular RFR was meant to go up last week, just in time for the annual festival of half-price chocolate, but various things conspired to keep me from completing it until today. For those of you who can’t get enough comic review goodness, I’ve got the cowbell to slake your fever, and it’s time to ask ourselves, baby, what’s the word? In the words of the great philosopher Aloysius Bundy: “Let’s ROCK.”

Ty Romsa delivers and awesome looking image of Flash Gordon in action, so how could I pass this one up for our Pulp Hero Art Appreciation Week?
It was surprisingly difficult to find any reference for this character, especially in color! I’m pretty happy with the final result! Hope you all love it!

Even though we review a rather large number of titles from the big two, that doesnâ€™t mean we never dip our big toe into the waters of other publishers.Â In fact, one of the nicer joys of reading a small press title is the discovery of something new and unique that is a lot of fun to read.Â In the case of Flash Gordon #1 from Ardden Entertainment, the reader is presented with something that is not only old, but new.Â But does that make it good?

Sony has announced that it has signed writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless to pen the next big screen adaptation of Flash Gordon.Â The update to the series has been passed around from Universal back to Hearst owned King Features Syndication, and now finally to Sony, who picked up the rights a few months ago.
Joining the writers are producer Neal Moritz and director Breck Eisner.
There are a lot of people who still have an affection for the 1980′s Flash Gordon flick, those that get a kick out of Buster Crabbe’s 1930′s serial, and not a single person I know that likes the Sci-Fi Channel’s attempt at a reboot.Â This brings us to the question of the day; will audiences take to a new Flash Gordon?
First Highlander, now Flash Gordon is getting a facelift thanks to Columbia Pictures who are in talks to acquire the rights to the comic property.
“Flash” was originally a science fiction newspaper comic strip drawn by Alex Raymond in the 1930s and was created to compete with another sci-fi strip, “Buck Rogers.” The strip was first adapted to the screen via Buster Crabbe serials and made into a lavish 1980 film starring Sam Jones but remembered more for its Queen score. More recently, it was a Sci Fi Channel miniseries that was seen a critical and ratings failure.
Yeah, critical failure is a bit of an understatement…
No writers are on board to adapt, but if the deal goes through Breck Eisner could direct and Neal Mortiz will produce.
Unlike the HIghlander, a really good remake of Flash Gordon could do wonders for sci-fi comics turned movies, especially if treated like Star Wars Episode IV.
And now a little something for the fans of the original movie. Sing along won’t you?
