Titan Books will publish The Complete Flash Gordon Library, a restored full-color hardcover series collecting every strip from the legendary sci-fi adventure comic. The first volume, On the Planet Mongo, will be released in March 2012.
Created by Alex Raymond, Flash Gordon debuted in January 1934, chronicling the adventures of the titular polo player and his companions Dale Arden and Dr. Hans Zarkov as they attempt to save Earth from Ming the Merciless, ruler of the planet Mongo. The strip ran in newspapers for seven decades, inspiring radio serials, movies, television series and comic books, and helping to inspire Star Wars.
The 192-page first volume, which retails for $39.95, includes a foreword by Alex Ross. Check out the official announcement after the break.
