By the time of these strips, Flash Gordon was a massive hit; appearing in newspapers, novels, movie serials, and comic books, and entertaining millions. These are the earliest daily newspaper adventures, running independently of the Sunday strip with the rapid-fire pace that came of installments that appeared six days a week.
Beginning on May 27, 1940, these first adventures include Princess Lita, Freeland, and War on Earth.
Don Moore was the writer of Flash Gordon between 1935-1967. He was previously a pulp editor.
