Dynamite’s ‘King’ Line Might Be The Weirdest Shared Universe In Comics Right Now

King - Prince Valiant #1

This week marks the release of Prince Valiant #1, and with it, the final building block in the foundation of Dynamite's increasingly weird "King" universe.

While Flash Gordon has stuck around and been pretty fantastic, it's only in the last month that the rest of the characters have rolled out into their own books to flesh out the world.
