1990: Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon (1990) #1-6,
Flash Gordon: The Daily Strips (1992) #1-2 by Alex Raymond and Austin Briggs

As usual with these strip reprints, I’m not actually reading them (now), because I just don’t have the time. I know that that’s kinda the point of this blog series (to read the books and natter away), but 🤷🏼‍♂️.

I may, at some later point, go back and read these books in particular (and then write about them), because they look pretty interesting. Keep reloading this page! It may happen in just a few decades!

Kitchen hadn’t done many colour reprints before this, but this is all colour.

It starts off pretty rough in the mid 30s, but the artwork soon becomes rather lush.

And the artwork gets more room to breathe, and becomes ever-more Hal Foster-like.

But then it pivots and becomes something very different… was this ghosted by somebody else? It looks lovely.

Wowo, now I really want to read these books…

But then there’s dailies, too.

Er… looks nice, too?

But not as stunning as the later Raymond years.

There you go — a totally pointless placeholder blog post. Sorry!

This is the one hundred and fifteenth post in the Entire Kitchen Sink blog series.
