Alex Raymond: Flash Gordon, Im Königreich aus Eis (The Ice Kingdom of Mongo)

“The Ice Kingdom of Mongo” was the thirteenth installment of Alex Raymond’s Flash Gordon Sunday comic strip serial for King Features Syndicate. It was originally published between March 12, 1939 and April 7, 1940. The epic-length “Ice Kingdom of Mongo” was the first story whose continuity lasted more than a year.





Flash, Dale, Zarkov and Ronal rocket their way to explore the frozen North. The freezing temperatures (100 below zero) cause their rocket ship to crash.





























the comic strip will be continued...

Alex Raymond leistete viel für die Anerkennung der Comics als eine weitere Kunstform. Sein Werk hob das Genre eine weitere Stufe empor und wurde zum Vorbild für viele Zeichner nach ihm. Mit Flash Gordon schuf er die Idealform des Abenteuer-Strips.
