Titan Books are releasing The Complete Flash Gordon Library, collating all the newspaper comic strips in a series of hardback books. A welcome release given how hard it is to get hold of the old Checker Books volumes at sensible prices. If you have not read any of the Flash Gordon strips they are well worth investigating and chock full of gaming and modelling ideas...
Amazon has good deals on all three planned volumes:
The Complete Flash Gordon Library: On the Planet Mongo (Vol. 1)
The Complete Flash Gordon Library: The Tyrant of Mongo (Vol. 2)
The Complete Flash Gordon Library: The Fall of Ming (Vol. 3)
Typesetting and formatting of the 28 page PDF has been completed and all that is left to do is a photo shoot tomorrow before uploading to Wargame Vault. We have decided that whilst it is a 'lite' version of the main rules, it is still a quite substantial product so we will be charging a small amount for it, but we will ensure that purchasers can redeem this against the main rulebook when it is released later in the year.
As a teaser we thought we'd share the contents of Rapid Launch! with you...
