The old King Comics characters: Flash Gordon, Mandrake the Magician, the Phantom, and several supporting characters are brought together to save the world from an invasion by Ming the Merciless. The story is pretty good with solid art and a fun adventure. The characters are more scattershot. While most are consistent from what I know of the comic strips, many characters are flatter. Also sadly, this doesn't follow the continuity of Parker's Flash Gordon series but rather stands alone as the start to some lesser spin-offs and future team-ups. Still, for what it is, this is pretty fun.
