Kids today read everything on their tablets and smartphones, and sadly don’t remember the printed newspapers. I couldn’t wait for the Sunday paper, because they always had a section devoted to Sunday comic strips, like Prince Valiant and Calvin & Hobbes. Now Titan Books has just released the 3rd collected volume of the iconic sci-fi hero Flash Gordon.
I really enjoyed the first collected volume of Flash Gordon by Titan Books. And now the second volume is upon us – Flash Gordon: The Tyrant of Mongo, which collects stories from April 25, 1937 – January 12, 1941. The iconic Flash Gordon Sunday strips are restored in full color glory. On Planet Mongo, ruthless ruler Ming the Merciless is on the hunt for the Earth girl Dale Arden and Flash Gordon. Flash with the aid of Dr. Zarkov makes new allies as the fight off Ming’s various threats trying to stay alive on Planet Mongo.
