Dynamite Entertainment has put together their own trinity — with Flash Gordon and Mandrake the Magician having joined their Phantom license to take on the complete King Features lineup!
“Flash Gordon and Mandrake the Magician are two great additions to the iconic characters we currently publish: Green Hornet, The Phantom, Buck Rogers, Zorro, Project Superpowers, The Black Terror, Death Defying ‘Devil, Masquarade, The Lone Ranger and all of the titles we are proud to publish,” Nick Barrucci, Dynamite President and Publisher, said in a press release. ”We promise to devote the same passion to these King Features properties as we have done so consistently throughout our publishing history, beginning with The Last Phantom.”
Flash Gordon is one of the seminal sci-fi swashbucklers, having been created in 1934 to compete with Buck Rogers. Mandrake the Magician, meanwhile, used his powers of hypnosis to battle foes ranging from gangsters to extradimensional creatures. The last time these two heroes were under the same banner as the Phantom was in 1967, under King Comics.
There’s no word as to any creative teams that might take on the book, or any dates as to when they might be released.
