BONUS REVIEW by JIMMY PS HAYES
I’m almost sick and tired of Arrden turning out such great product ever month. Here we go again! Another FANTASTIC Flash Gordon book. For just $15 you get a HARDCOVER with ALL NEW material. And you know the worst part? It’s GREAT!!!!! Nicely bookended by the regular creative team of Brenden Deneen and Paul Green, this books is basically a “Tales from Mongo” anthology. You learn origins of some of the characters in the classic Flash Gordon mythos, retold in a spectacular up to date fashion! Believe me, Mongo is NOT a nice place to visit and you DEFINTATELY wouldn’t want to live there!
