Alex Raymonds Flash Gordon, Vol. 2 by Alex RaymondAs I noted in my review of the first book of this series where the old Flash Gordon comic strips are gathered I watched the old 1936 Flash Gordon movie the other night and it flashed me back to my childhood. To watching the old TV series, reruns of the movies and movie serials...and of course reading these strips in the newspaper each Sunday (well, not these specific strips as they are still early. Ill hopefully get to the 1950s strips i began reading later.
While these are reprints (possibly of reprints) and the art suffers a little its still great. The stories and the dialogue are (of course) very dated, but that doesnt bother me. Hopefully it wont most readers as its part of the package...1930s forward.

So enjoy. These are G to slightly PG rated fun and adventure. Ray-guns and swords flash, zing and crash. There are some great battle scenes and other action paintings in the frames.
