Flash Grell?

Mike Grell has signed-on as Editor-in-Chief for Ardden Entertainment.
Just imagine what Mike Grell might do with Arrden's refurbished reboot of Flash Gordon...if anyone in comics today has a clue about what to do with a property like Flash Gordon, it'd be Mr. Grell.

Mike Grell's reinterpretation of Alex Raymond's classic Witch Queen of Mongo would be awesome.  I'm just saying.

Plus, as Editor-in-Chief, Mike Grell now has the entire Atlas roster to work with and revitalize.  Now that's exciting news to anyone who cares about them funny books.  It's alsoa majorly encouraging sign that Ardden has added The Destructor, Tiger Man, Scorpion and some other classic character's names/logos to their Atlas page, so those characters might just have a shot at getting revised, rebooted and released just like Phoenix, Grim Ghost and Wulf.

Wow.

It doesn't get any cooler than that, does it?

Yeah it does--We could be writing the new Destructor comic.
That'd be even cooler...

  1. That's cool! Grell's Flash Gordon would certainly be better than what they've been doing.

  2. Greel + Ardden sounds like an amazingly cool combination. I'm very interested how Grell revives the Atlas-verse...and if he manages to bring some of his personal magic to the Flash Gordon reboot--that could only be a good thing. A tremendously good thing.

  3. Yeah Ardden's FG books (the ones you linked to) are just terrible. I bought the first 3 issues thinking I'd give it a chance. I stopped counting how many times they lifted (I'll stop short of saying copy/pasted) entire expressions of characters from previous panels.

    Flash definitely deserves better, here's to Grell giving it a go!

  4. I admit that I'm less than thrilled at the way the Flash Gordon books have declined, but I am holding out hope that Ardden might be able to revitalize the series with Grell's insight/energy.

    The nice thing is, from my viewpoint, that every new effort in this area opens the door for more such efforts, and we might well see some awesome stuff in the years ahead. I, for one, want to see a definitive Flash Gordon RPG, a Buck Rogers RPG would be fun also--or maybe just some sort of Classic Retro SCiFi RPG in general that featured add-ons for Flash, etc.
