Flash Gordon: Kings Cross by Jeff Parker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Exactly what one would expect from a Flash Gordon book. This time the action takes place on Earth as Ming comes along threatening to conquer the planet. Things become pretty dire and it is up to Flash to spoil the merciless one's plan. A fun, rip-roaring adventure full of action from the get go and plenty of witty repartee and humour. This story includes a host of heroes along with the regular cast from Flash, we have Mandrake, The Phantom, Prince Valiant and Jungle Jim all giving Gordon a hand with this immense task. The book is a complete stand-alone though it does follow (and mention events) from the previous book entitled "Kings Quest".
