FLASH GORDON: ZEITGEIST VOL. 1 TP
200+ pages FC • $29.99 • Teen+
Written by ERIC TRAUTMANN
Art by DANIEL INDRO, RON ADRIAN
Cover by ALEX ROSS
A classic of science-fiction is reborn in Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist. Inspired by Alex Raymond's legendary tales of invasion, action, and romance on the distant planet Mongo, and under the artistic supervision of renowned artist Alex Ross, Zeitgeist returns Flash Gordon to his two-fisted, thrill-packed roots. The year is 1934, and Earth is attacked by a powerful alien invasion force, led by the sinister, all-seeing Ming the Merciless. And this time, he does not fight alone. Allied with the sinister spymaster Klytus, his exotic and treacherous daughter, Princess Aura... and Adolf Hitler! Three valiant humans — iconic hero Flash Gordon, the beautiful, tough, determined Dale Arden, and the brilliant scientist Hans Zarkov — are plucked from our world and rocketed into another universe of fearsome creatures, noble and savage alien species, ancient science, and titanic threats.
“This is a promising start to Dynamite's latest attempt to revive a classic comic icon.” - IGN
“Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist is an exceptional introduction to the series, one that feels at home on Earth and in outer space. Both writer Eric Trautmann and artist Daniel Indro perfectly mix that fantastic and wicked world of Ming the Merciless, with the nostalgic and hopeful one of Flash Gordon.” - BROKEN FRONTIER
“...Dynamite has done it again with this revival of an old familiar franchise. I can't wait to read more.” - COMIC VINE
“Bottom line: If you like sci-fi and 1930′s-40′s period drama, then this book is for you. Highly recommended!” - COMIC HYPE
