The Definitive Flash Gordon and Jungle Jim, Vol. 1

Alex Raymond (w & a & c)

IDW’s Library of American Comics is producing The Definitive Flash Gordon & Jungle Jim as part of the Ultimate Alex Raymond Collection. The Definitive Flash Gordon & Jungle Jim will present every Sunday by Raymond from both classic strips together for the first time, in the oversized 12″ x 16″ champagne edition format. The artist’s post-war modernist detective series, Rip Kirby, is currently being collected.

Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney is editing and designing the deluxe editions. “Although Flash Gordon has been previously reprinted, this—finally—is the first meticulously remastered and restored edition that prints the strip in a large size and in Raymond’s original format that includes the Jungle Jim topper. We believe this will be the definitive edition for the ages.”

Created by Raymond in 1934, Flash Gordon is arguably the most famous science fiction comic strip of all time. It follows adventures of the title character and his companions—Dale Arden and Dr. Zarkov—as they leave Earth to discover the source of meteors that are threatening the planet, and gets waylaid on the planet Mongo, where they battle the evil Ming the Merciless. The three Earthlings encounter one strange race after another, from the water-breathing Shark-Men of the Undersea Kingdom, to the winged Hawkmen, to the ferocious Tusk-Men. All the while, Flash finds himself in the arms of one beautiful woman after another—much to Dale Arden’s chagrin.
Jungle Jim was created as a strip topper for Flash Gordon, and followed the life of Jim Bradley, who fought pirates, slave traders, and assorted villains in the exotic Southeast Asia of the 1930s. This neglected Raymond classic also features Jim’s native cohort Kolu and femme fatale Lille DeVrille.

Stephan Nilson (w) * Karl Waller (a & c)

What do two unemployed municipal animal control specialists do when their city is infested with monsters?

The Keep

F. Paul Wilson (w) * Matthew Dow Smith (a & c)

The keep had stood empty in the Transylvanian Alps for 500 years. No one knew who built it, or why. But on the eve of WWII, German soldiers move in and awaken something — something hungry — something as merciless as the SS einsatzkommandos accompanying them. Now you can re-live the tale as it was meant to be told (we didn’t mention the 1980s movie directly, but…) as author F. Paul Wilson adapts his own story in this 2011 edition with new cover by Matthew Dow Smith!

Done To Death

Andrew Foley (w) * Fiona Staples (a & c)

Fed up with receiving poorly written Twilight knockoffs, editor Shannon Wade did what any reasonable person would: she started killing the worst of the would-be authors sending them to her. Meanwhile, Andy, a stuttering, overweight vampire has targeted those who portray vampires in a light he deems unrealistic. Not exactly novel but terribly graphic, Done To Death follows Andy and Shannon’s paths towards a collision as darkly funny as it is ridiculously violent.

Grimm’s Fairytales, Vol. 2

Jacob and Wilheim Grimm (w) * Kevin Colden (a & c)

Often thought of as children’s tales, the original stories from the Brothers Grimm are nothing of the sort. Dark, vindictive and full of hard-to-swallow life lessons, this second collection of Grimm’s Fairy Tales re-presents these lasting prose stories with contemporary illustrations by Eisner Award-nominated artist Kevin Colden.

Deadworld: The Last Siesta

Gary Reed, Gary Francis (w) * Mark Bloodworth (a & c)

An original graphic novel set in the supernatural holocaust of Deadworld! Outside of the dusty and remote town of Juarez, Mexico, new laws have replaced what was once called civilization. The old laws don’t apply to the dead, the walking dead, so there had to be new ones. One of the wielders of this new law was the mysterious wanderer, Raga, who was known in the whispers swirling around the land as simply, “The Assassin.” There was nothing living… or dead, that he hadn’t killed. But now he had a new challenge. However, his plans get disrupted by an unexpected force… the King Zombie and his hoards of zombies. You may be able to kill what’s already dead, but how many times??In Deadworld, where death is only the beginning of the horror, this all-new graphic novel adds to the mythos that has grown over two decades of the epic Deadworld saga.

Samm Schwartz was one of the main Archie artists in the 1950s and 1960s. He worked on all the major Archie characters, but is most remembered for his portrayal of Jughead.
