Blast off to the golden age of adventure with the original cosmic crusader! Cartoonist Alex Raymond’s intrepid interstellar invader took the comics page by storm in 1934 – and, two years later, he made the leap to the silver screen in the smiling person of Olympic swimmer-turned-actor Buster Crabbe. The original 13-episode serial, Flash Gordon: Space Soldiers, introduced Flash (Crabbe), his winsome platinum blonde girlfriend Dale Arden (Jean Rogers) and visionary scientist Dr. Alex Zarkov (Frank Shannon) as they save the earth from evil Emperor Ming The Merciless (Charles B. Middleton) with the help of Ming's daughter Princess Aura (Priscilla Lawson). It was a hit at the box office and spawned a pair of equally electrifying sequels: Flash Gordon’s Trip to Mars (1938) and Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe (1940). You’ll find all three of these killer serials between the sturdy covers of this collector’s edition Video-Book package, complete with a gorgeously illustrated booklet that fleshes out Flash’s multimedia odyssey and includes original Alex Raymond cartoons. This set belongs in every sci-fi lover’s library!
