Games relating to Flash Gordon, hero of a science fiction adventure comic strip originally drawn by Alex Raymond. In Australia, the character and strip were retitled Speed Gordon.
"First published January 7, 1934, the strip was inspired by and created to compete with the already established Buck Rogers adventure strip. Also inspired by these series were comics such as Dash Dixon (1935 to 1939) by H.T. Elmo and Larry Antoinette and Don Dixon and the Hidden Empire (1935 to 1941) by Carl Pfeufer and Bob Moore."
