Alex Raymond is a Checker Publishing author.From Booklist:
The third volume chronologically reprinting the vintage strip Flash Gordon shows illustrator Raymond coming into his own, perfecting the lush, romantic style that would make him a major influence on future generations of comics artists. The story line is space opera at its most primitive. In these 1936-38 episodes, the rocket carrying Flash; his girlfriend, Dale Arden; and their scientist friend Dr. Zarkoff is shot down by the forces of their archfoe, Ming the Merciless, emperor of the planet Mongo. The trio is stranded in Mongo's remote forest kingdom, where they're menaced by strange creatures and savage tusk-men before being rescued by their friend King Barin, whose refusal to turn them over to Ming ignites a planetary war. Flash is captured, forcing Dale and Zarkoff to attempt a daring rescue. The clunky dialogue ("No! You can't mean it, man!") doesn't make this any more palatable to contemporary readers than does the literal-minded, yellow-peril depiction of Ming. Raymond's masterful brushwork, however, with its idealized human figures and exotic backgrounds, carries all before it. Gordon Flagg
