A few weeks ago, Bleeding Cool ran a story about the preview of Mark Millar and Gorlan Parlov's upcoming Image comic, Starlight.
About how, in its first announcement it was described as Flash Gordon-meets-Dark Knight. But by the second preview, suddenly the lead character was no longer blonde when a younger man, but had dark hair. And no longer engaged in a sword fight on the cover with a Ming-type figure.
The change was in. We can speculate it was as a result of a legal challenge from Flash Gordon owners, King Features, but we have no evidence for that, apart from the circumstantial. Dynamite, who have the Flash Gordon comics license right now were not involved or aware of the change.
But it wasn't changed everywhere.
Presumably because it went to print before, Mark Millar chose to make these changes, the most recent issue of Kick Ass 3 #6 has the earlier still-Flash Gordoned version of Starlight in the preview. Consider it Starlight's hanging chad.
So does that mean… collectible?
