Three valiant humans — Flash Gordon, Dale Arden and Dr. Hans Zarkov — are plucked from the Earth, traveling to the distant planet Mongo.

Thanks to you for crediting my blog.

I have great expectations on this new Flash Gordon and, at least, expect them to be much better than the most recent attempt from Ardden Entertainment which was a total failure in terms of fidelity, release deadlines, story, etc.

I must say that I've been checking some of Francesco Francavilla's Flash Gordon stuff and all the pictures I've seen have an Al Williamson flavour.

Congrats for such a great blog!!
