This is a continuation of the Flash Gordon story begun in KINGS WATCH volume 1. Here, Flash, Dale and Zarkov crash on Mongo after having averted the invasion of Earth by Ming. They encounter the blue-skinned Barin of the Forest People and pass themselves off as government inspectors. We learn that Flash has a rich father and that he's an expert in extreme sports, the reason he so readily takes risks. However, he's a little too flakey for Dale. Zarkov acts pretty much like a douche-bag, which is funny. He's smart but unpleasant. Ming is able to control his kingdom by having control of various portals/gateways that lead to each world and uses clone avatars so he doesn't have to travel there. There's also a good explanation of the "Beast Men"- they are humans transformed into half creatures for battle purposes. The only thing I didn't really like is the depiction of "The lion man", who looks like a hairy guy with a beard. Oh-and each story has a different artist, most very "cartoony". Still, if you're a fan of Flash Gordon this should entertain you.
