IDW's Library of American Comics is producing The Definitive Flash Gordon
& Jungle Jim as part of the Ultimate Alex Raymond Collection.
Edited by Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney, The Definitive Flash Gordon
& Jungle Jim will present every Sunday by Raymond from both classic
strips together for the first time, in the oversized 12" x 16" champagne edition
format.
Created by Raymond in 1934, Flash
Gordon is arguably the most famous science fiction comic strip of all time.
It follows the adventures of the title character and his companions, Dale Arden
and Dr. Zarkov, as they leave Earth to discover the source of meteors that are
threatening the planet, and get waylaid on the planet Mongo, where they battle
the evil Ming the Merciless. The three Earthlings encounter one strange race
after another, from the water-breathing Shark-Men of the Undersea Kingdom, the
winged Hawkmen, and the ferocious Tusk-Men. All the while, Flash finds himself
in the arms of one beautiful woman after another - much to Dale Arden's
chagrin.
Jungle Jim was created as a
strip topper for Flash Gordon, and followed the life of Jim
Bradley, who fought pirates, slave traders, and assorted villains in the exotic
Southeast Asia of the 1930s. This neglected Raymond classic also features Jim's
native cohort Kolu and femme fatale Lille
DeVrille.
