Well this is nice timing as I’m about to post my review of Flash Gordon. We will also be reviewing the comic on this week’s episode.  Here’s a press release from the guys over at Ardden. It seems that things are going well in the land of Mongo.

Ardden Entertainment’s first two issues of FLASH GORDON have sold out at Diamond Comic Distributors within two weeks of hitting retail shops — with the fledgling publisher making an extra 1000 copies – of each book – available to retail stores for immediate re-order.
Featuring the art talents of Paul Green and written by Ardden’s co-president, Brendan Deneen, FLASH GORDON was launched at this year’s NYC Comic-Con with a special issue zero, which sold over 3000 copies at the show.
Richard Emms, Ardden’s co-founder, comments on the success of FLASH GORDON and the support that the company has received from retailers across the globe.
“We knew that FLASH GORDON would do well, but not this well. It’s been great working alongside Diamond Comic Distributors and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work. That also has to be said about the many retailers who have contacted us over the past few weeks, showing a great deal of support for our first title and telling us that both FLASH GORDON #1 and #2 have sold out within hours of hitting the shelves.   
Flash Gordon was created by Alex Raymond in 1934 and celebrates his 75th Birthday next year. Ardden has big plans for his birthday, including a special anniversary issue featuring some of the industry’s top talents.  
Ardden Entertainment LLC was formed in 2007 by Brendan Deneen and Richard Emms with a view to create exciting new licenses and creator-owned projects. In February 2008, comic book legend JM DeMatteis joined Ardden as its Editor-in-Chief, overseeing the company’s editorial direction.
