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. Built around the King Features characters that are best known as newspaper strips --- and in the case of The Phantom, a Billy Zane movie that invited viewers to 'slam evil!' --- the line got its start in the Kings Watch crossover in 2013. 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.
Now, with everything in place, the King line has pulpy sci-fi, mystic adventure, superhero action and swords and sorcery from the days of King Arthur all jockeying for position and trying to come together as a cohesive unit. And to be honest, it's actually pretty awesome to see.
Annuals get a bad rap. I'm pretty sure it's because they formed the core of some truly terrible crossovers starting in the '90s -- lookin' at you here, Bloodlines -- but there's nothing congenitally wrong with them. In their purest form, annuals are just extra comics, and since we all like comics, that ought to be something to get excited about. And in the case of Dynamite's Flash Gordon Annual 2014, we've got something worth getting excited about.
Flash Gordon is already one of my favorite books on the stands, and this week's Annual continues that trend by providing a fantastic roster of great stories -- including a solo tale for Dale Arden that needs to be made into an ongoing series yesterday.

Remember the one-page Batgirl/Supergirl comic by Mike Maihack that we all loved and thought was the greatest thing ever? What we neglected to mention at the time was that it was inspired by a similarly awesome one-page, six-panel Captain Marvel comic created by writer Nate Cosby and artist Evan "Doc" Shaner. With no sight of Captain Marvel in the new DC Universe, their strip could be the only Shazam! action you get for a while. Luckily, i
Every month, comic book publishers release their solicitations, a list of the titles they plan to release two months hence, usually accompanied by bombastic descriptions designed to spark interest and orders from retailers and fans. The result, particu
