With Gold Key Comics Flash Gordon #23 we get back to the great creative team of John Warner and Carlos Garzon, carrying on in the fine tradition of Al Williamson. I enjoyed their fine work on the exciting Gold Key/Whitman series.

Flash Gordon #23
"The Game of Death Part 1"
On exploratory mission, Flash and Dale are attacked by Warlord Moran.
"The Game of Death Part 2"
After their ships crash-land in an uncharted jungle, Morlan and Flash are forced to hunt each other by the local indigenous tribe of Jaguar Men.
Written by John Warner (Bloodstone) with art by Carlos Garzon (Star Trek).
Flash Gordon #23 was also published under the Whitman Comics logo, with the same publication date. It was later reprinted in Dark Horse Comics Flash Gordon Comic Book Archives Volume 4. These hardcover editions were a magnificent treatment, also featuring ads from the original comics.
Covers for the Norway (Knut Westad cover) and Portugal reprints.
Avon Books published seven Flash Gordon paperbacks by Conn Steffanson with great painted covers by George Wilson. Here's hoping Hermes Books will reprint these novels, as they are soon reprinting The Phantom Avon paperbacks, with the original covers!
|I enjoy the looks of this cover, grabs my attention!|
|A real nice looking wraparound cover by Jerry Ordway!|
Comic Reader (created by Paul Levitz & Paul Kupperberg) featured covers by Jerry Ordway (Superman) and John Byrne (Doomsday+1) . One of the back covers (#108 I believe) was James Bond by Jim Aparo (The Phantom), from an almost fiorgotten, proposed series at one time
Flash Gordon has been translated into a wide variety of media, including motion pictures, television and animated series. One of the latest version, a fun Flash Gordon television series, appeared on the Syfy channel in the US from 2007–2008.
