The Definitive Alex Raymond Collection

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 27, 2010 in Comic Books |


With the recent passing of Al Williamson, I thought it might be nice to give another nod to one of the series that made him famous, Flash Gordon. Of course, I’m well aware that he didn’t have anything to do with Alex Raymond’s original Sunday strips, but they were indeed the inspiration needed to launch his storied career. IDW recently announced that those original Sunday strips will be completely remastered, alongside Jungle Jim, in a 12 x 16 inch “champagne” format.

While the series has been reprinted in the past, this will mark the first time each panel has been painstakingly remastered for a large format, truly making this the definitive collection of Flash Gordon and Jungle Jim comics for any collector to have. While no exact date has been announced, the Ultimate Alex Raymond Collection: The Definitive Flash Gordon and Jungle Jim should be available in stores sometime in 2011.
