Reviews - What do customers think about Flash Gordon Volume 7?

Thus ends the original Flash Gordon  Feb 21, 2007
From 1934 to 1945, Alex Raymond captivated many a reader of the comics page every Sunday for eleven years. "Flash Gordon" was a strip unlike any other--a blend of science fiction, fantasy, lush location and heroics--the early years of which inspired George Lucas' "Star Wars" films.

This is the final volume in Checker's seven-volume reprints of Flash Gordon. Flash, Zarkov and Dale, unable to hum a patriotic tune much longer, have returned to the planet Mongo (for the first time since Ming the Merciless' death in 1941, vol. 5). Volume 7 begins in 1943--Flash and company have been on the alien planet for some time. They have made friends with Desira, queen of Tropica and Gundar, the light-hearted outlaw chief. With combined forces, the Tropicans and the Earthlings must defeat Brazor, a tyrant who has seized Desira's throne.

Though the original cast of characters from Mongo is absent, Desira, Gundar and Brazor are welcome, fresh co-stars. Unfortunately, Zarkov has the most backseat role in the strip's history in these final years. The last continuity feels hurried, with Flash's back to the readers, and Zarkov and Dale barely seen--all in the last strip, from February, 1945.

"Flash Gordon" (1934-1945) is perhaps one of the greatest comic strips of all time. As I understand it, Alex Raymond left cartooning to serve his country in the Second World War. I applaud his patriotism, even if he left Flash and company to lesser cartoonists. Highly recommended.
