The Flash Of Two Publishers: Part Two

Last year, Bleeding Cool reported how both Ardden Entertainment and Dynamite Entertainment were both publsihing Flash Gordon comic books, somehow seemingly sharing the same licence – though Dynamite’s book has yet to bve published or scheduled.

Well, now two more publishers have entered the fray, over classic Flash Gordon strips – indeed the very same material.

British publisher Titan Books are publishing Flash Gordon: The Alex Raymond Sunday Strips Vol. 1, in the USA as well as the UK.

But  IDW Publishing are also publishing the Ultimate Alex Raymond Collection: The Definitive Flash Gordon and Jungle Jim, offering both Sunday strips together.

This could get confusing. Especially when Dark Horse have licensed the Flash Gordon comics to reprint, while Checker BPG still has copies of the same material available in the market.

So that’s currently six potential Flash Gordon publishers. Any more for any more?
