Archie Comics in association with King Features Syndicate has announced a comic crossover collab between Flash Gordon and Archie.
In a 48-page one-shot issue written by Jeff Parker, the Riverdale group happen upon a crashed alien spaceship that takes them on a journey to the planet Mongo and Ming the Merciless – with Flash Gordon along for the ride.
“King Features and Archie Comics are a great team, so having our beloved characters, Flash Gordon and the Archie kids, team up, too, is an exciting moment for both of these classic brands” said Tea Fougner, editorial director, King Features Syndicate, to The Hollywood Reporter. “To top it off, to work with such amazing talent like Dan Parent and Jeff Parker is an honor. Their love for all of these characters shines through every page, and we’re thrilled to share this story with fans new and old.”
The new comic book, Archie Meets Flash Gordon, is due out on June 3.
