- Full Description
This new series is head-and-shoulders superior to every other Flash Gordon collection that has been done, beginning with the first Nostalgia Press hardcovers in the 1960s. Here you not only get the pages in extra-large size, so that you can see every fine line of Raymond's...but you also get the Jungle Jim "toppers" that ran right along with Flash and were drawn by Raymond with every bit as much skill and excitement.
This is the third of four volumes that collect these two superb strips when Raymond was at his finest. From the beautiful but evil Snow Queen Fria, in the far icy wastes of Mongo, to danger on an underground river, to the famous Power Men sequence as Flash fights Ming in catacombs under the capital city, and overhead in a majestic rocket ship battle. And finally, at least for the moment, a clear defeat of Ming. Then we have an amazing rocket journey back to Earth. Flash and Dale join the war effort (in 1941) and fight in the seas and in the latest planes.
As you flip through this fine volume, panel after panel leaps out as ones that have been featured and reprinted over the decades as Raymond's finest work. His beautiful women, from Dale to Queen Fria, his mastery of grand battles and narrow escapes. Truly amazing work, superbly reproduced, A long introduction shows rare examples of other Raymond artwork, plus posters and related books featuring Flash and Jungle Jim.
