31 Days Of Flash Gordon #8

July 8th, 2010

2001: A Space Odyssey was once promoted to the late ’60s/early ’70s counterculture with the tagline “The Ultimate Trip,” a reference to its psychedelic “Star Gate” sequence. Perhaps Flash Gordon would have similarly benefited from an ad campaign highlighting its hallucinogenic qualities. In addition to the freaky, swirling clouds surrounding the planet Mongo, there were the truly bizarre “moons,” each of which served as a kingdom for one of the eternally-feuding princes. The above collection of floating rocks was the moon Aquaria, whereas Prince Barin’s forest realm of Arboria resembled a craggy, tree-filled cereal bowl.
