4.0 out of 5 stars A Quality comic book 4 Aug 2010
I was very happy with this. The artwork is brilliant and does a great job in re-booting the Flash Gordon retro style.
A few too many copy and pastes with the character illustrations though - But when the design is this good you can let Paul Green off on that one.

I am now trying to find the next installment and mop up any other comics that Paul has drawn -

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 1 Dec 2009
By Mark Boss - Published on Amazon.com
Ok so I have only scene the 80's movie and some of the B/W serial, so I dont know how true it is to the original.

At first I felt they made Flash Gordon to much of a Renaissance man but
1) They do exist
2) Its a comic

It well written, the art work is like high end animation. Everything is like a pitcher from a movie.

Thats all I'm willing to say, as you will hate me for telling you more.

Also when ordering this, get "Flash Gordon: The Secret History of Mongo" also by Ardden Entertainment
It takes place after the Flash Gordon: The Mercy War TPB but before the new series
Its a stand alone Graphic novel, but worth having. Tells about Plant Mogos History, and foreshadowing of things to come.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better interpretations. 22 Sep 2012
By M. Sonntag - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not sure what people are complaining about The Mercy Wars is a beautifuly illustrated comic. I can see there were some shortcuts taken as in reuse of artwork but that really doesn't bother me. I found it easy to understand and very modern, especially the new take on Flash's arrival on Mongo. I'm not so taken by the follow up volumes, the artwork in those is not as high as this first volume.

The Mercy Wars, is one of the stronger drawn comic books based on Flash Gordon. Of course, Alex Raymond will always be my favorite artist followed by Al Williamson, Mac Raboy then Dan Barry. Paul Green's art is slick and modern, worthy of its place in Flash Gordon history along with Brenden Deneen's writing.
2.0 out of 5 stars Basic story with very distracting art! 10 Feb 2012
By GSD - Published on Amazon.com
Okay, so I cheated. I didn't buy this book, but I read it and I can say this...

As a Flash Gordon origin, the story is very basic: Meteor storm... Zarkov and Flash travel to Mongo... Ming the Merciless... Yadda Yadda Yadda. As a science fiction story it is sub-par. The biggest problem with the book is the art. It is abysmal. It leaves the reader squinting, trying to decipher what is happening in each comics panel.It tries to resemble manga with dis-proportioned anatomy and too much content per panel.

Go elsewhere for your Flash Gordon fix.
