Flash Gordon No. 15 Cover by Pat Boyette

August 10, 2019|In General

Flash Gordon was created by Alex Raymond. It first appeared in newspapers in early 1934, and was a competitor to Buck Rogers which pre-dated it by a few years.

Flash has been adapted to serials, movies and comic books, and is one of the enduring characters of its era.

In the late 1960s, Charlton Comics had the comic book licence, and Pat Boyette produced some great artwork for it. Here’s the cover for No. 15 from August 1969. Restored art and original colour, with a new colour version.
