Full Issue Of Flash Gordon #2 From Jeff Parker And Evan Shaner

Flash02CovLamingWith the release of today's third issue of the Flash Gordon series by Jeff Parker and Evan Shaner, Dynamite has given us the complete second issue to share with readers.

The character of Flash Gordon originally debuted in newspaper strips January 7th, 1934… over 80 years ago. The series was created by Alex Raymond specifically to compete with another space adventure comic strip, Buck Rogers. The property has inspired many different takes on the character including multiple comic series, film serials starring Buster Crabbe (1936-1940), the classic 1980 movie starring Sam Jones with music by Queen and a recent television series on SyFy (2007-2008).

George Lucas has said on many occasions that he originally wanted to remake the Flash Gordon serials, which over time evolved into his franchise series Star Wars.
