Appears to be a weekly (Sundays).

Odd that Flash Gordon was one of the strips readers were asked whether *or not* they wanted to see rebooted just a week before the launch.

It’s fun being the first artist featured right out of the gate. In the Sunday page I did I really wanted to capture the action-packed feel of Alex Raymond’s first year on the strip. Meaning Ming, mayhem and MONSTERS!
