Beginning the complete library of the greatest science fiction hero of all time. 

Volume One will spotlight the work of Alex Raymond, legendary for some of the finest storytelling of the 20th century. Raymond illustrated the Sunday strips until 1944; with his clear and much-imitated style forming the original aesthetic of the most popular and easily recognised science fiction hero for decades to come. 

Introducing Flash Gordon, Dale Arden, Dr. Hans Zarkov, and Ming the Merciless, this volume will catapult readers to the deadly planet Mongo.

These are the strips that influenced George Lucas to create Star Wars, and which illustrator Al Williamson said were "the reason I became an artist."



Industry Reviews
"A wonderful new way to experience Alex Raymond's creation, and does grand justice to the artistic brilliance of the strip. It's a must-have for fans, and a must-see for those who've never had the pleasure of reading the original series before." - Forbes.com

'this is wonderful escapism, packed to the rafters with action, last minute escapes and lurid kinkiness.' - SFX

'This is an absolute "must have" for anyone who considers themselves a comics aficionado or armchair science fiction historian.' - B&N Book Blog

"Titan Books gives this collection the star treatment it deserves, faithfully reproducing the original strips on a high-quality stock of gently off-white paper that avoids the too-bright reproduction of other collections. If you don't have the time to read all 200+ pages of this "coffee-table" book in one sitting, merely dig in at any point and be wowed by Raymond's phantasmal world called Mongo." - MTV

'Recaptured in the glorious, four-color tones that evoke the sense of old newsprint, Titan has managed to retain the look and feel of what it must have been like to read the series as it unfolded from week to week, where Raymond managed to cram non-stop action and adventure into a single page of panels and stlll get a reader to return each week. This lovingly-presented volume should appeal to both new readers and those who might have even read it when it first came out 75 years ago.' - Fanboy Comics

'if the first volume is any indication, this series will be prized by longtime fans of Golden Age comics and new admirers alike.' - Playback STL

"As far as presentation goes, this is one huge and good looking book. Much like Titan's other library editions to have come out and impress fans over the years." - Comic Attack
