Starting Tuesday, May 17th, (and running the entire week) will be the comic adaptation of the 1980 feature film, Flash Gordon.
Though critically-reviled when it came out, the movie has attained cult-classic status, primarily due to the soundtrack by Queen...

...and over-the-top performances by Brian Blessed (Hawkman Prince Vultan) and Max Von Sydow (Ming the Merciless).

The adaptation was written by Bruce Jones and illustrated by legendary artist Al Williamson (who, ironically, was also doing the magnificent graphic novel version of The Empire Strikes Back at the same time)!
Interesingly, Williamson inked the entire Flash adaptation, while allowing the talented Carlos Garzon (no slouch, himself) to ink the bulk of Empire.
