Introduction by Michael T. Gilbert
Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: December 14th, 2011
Cover Price: $49.99

Collected in Flash Gordon Archives, Vol. 5 are 10 issues of the Whitman Flash Gordon series (28-37) including issues 31-33 which were an adaptation of the 1980 Flash Gordon movie. Talk about a treasure trove of excitement! Nearly 300 pages of classic comics reprinted and restored, and believe me, the book is totally worth the price.

These are, obviously, stories from another time. Comics were written a lot different then. There were no suck thing as “story arcs.” A comic was either a story told in one issue or a story that simply never really stopped, just continued from issue to issue.

This book is all over the place and it’s a really fun read. We get not only plenty of time with the main character and his story, we also get a good amount of time with the villains and supporting cast and find out their motivations.
