Few comic strips have captured readers’ imaginations like Flash Gordon. Originated in 1934 by legendary comic-strip artist Alex Raymond, Flash Gordon has set the standard for science-fiction adventure, even inspiring such modern-day classics as Star Wars.
For more than seven decades, loyal fans have explored the stars with the comics’ most famous intergalactic adventurer, his female companion Dale Arden, and scientist, Dr. Hans Zarkov.
In addition to the comic strip, Flash has also starred in a live-action serial, a radio show, novels, comic books, animated cartoons, and he even appeared on his own U.S. postage stamp.
