March 22, 2017 — Flash Gordon has been intriguing readers and viewers with his sci-fi adventures since he first appeared as a comic strip character in 1934.
He has appeared in movies, in television series and animated series and the characters and situations have spawned vast amounts of licensing materials — ray guns, spaceships, pop-up books, dolls and more.
The New Adventures of Flash Gordon details the adventures which starts when Flash, Dale Arden and Dr. Zarkov crash their spaceship onto the planet of Mongo, where Ming the Merciless rules. During their adventures they meet King Vultan, ruler of the Hawkmen, King Thun the Lion-man, Prince Barin of Arborio, Gundar the bandit chieftain, Queen Fria of Frigia, Queen Desira of Tropica and Princess Aura.
They have to protect themselves from ray guns, ice arrows, “witch-men,” “gill-men,” robots and attacks of all kinds.
Flash Gordon is one of the original science fiction heroes, and he’s plain old-fashioned fun.
