Dynamite Entertainment has announced via a press release that it will kick off 2015 with a celebration of the 100th anniversary of King Features Syndicate, the print syndication company owned by The Hearst Corporation. This celebration, dubbed the “King” event, will include new limited series starring King Features Syndicate comic strip heroes Flash Gordon, Madrake the Magician, Prince Valiant, The Phantom and Jungle Jim. These five limited series, which begin in January 2015, will culminate in a large crossover event in May. The first issue of each “King” mini will feature an interlocking cover by Darwyn Cooke.
