Flash Gordon by Austin Briggs
Austin Briggs entered the world of newspaper comics with a fine run on Alex Raymond's old
strip, Secret Agent X-9. As Raymond's new project, the Flash Gordon Sunday page, grew more popular the King Features Syndicate decided to launch a
Flash daily strip. As artist they chose Briggs, who had resigned X-9 and was
now assisting Raymond occasionally on Flash. Later Briggs would take over the
Sunday page when Raymond went into the military.
This four-book series reprints Briggs' entire run on the Flash Gordon daily
strip. Not as widely-distributed as its Sunday predecessor, the dailies have
been hard for fans to find until now.

The fame of Flash Gordon long outlived its creator, Alex Raymond. Having created the fantasy-adventure strip in 1934, the young artist set a new
standard for art and imagination in the newspaper strips. His artwork
influenced countless strip and comic book illustrators; his visions of other
worlds and his cast of characters became part of the American culture.
