FLASH GORDON Newspaper Sunday by LostonWallace FLASH GORDON Newspaper Sunday by LostonWallace
Back in 2001, Jim Keefe, writer and artist of King Features' FLASH GORDON newspaper strip, invited 9 artists to guest pencil Sunday strips of the famous comic strip created by Alex Raymond. Amongst the 9 artists invited were industry heavy weights the likes of Al Williamson, Joe Kubert, John Romita Sr, George Evans, and Michael T. Gilbert, as well as the amazingly talented Mark McMurray, Brian Bilter, and Patrick McDonnell! I am very proud to say that I also made the cut! I was stunned when Jim asked me to do the fill-in because I'd only been a professional artist for about 5 years at that point. Being a part of this artist spotlight remains one of the highest honors of my career. So I hope you enjoy the strip I pencilled. It was written, inked, and lettered by the awesome Jim Keefe, and followed the previous Sunday strip drawn by Al Williamson, whose FLASH GORDON work is legendary. A tough act to have to follow! Thank you, Jim!

This is 11 years old now, but please show some support for what is probably the hallmark of my career. +FAVES and COMMENTS appreciate!!

As a fan of your work I can understand why he asked you, your lines are perfect for Flash!

I really wish they would collect Jim's run into books.

Nice, dude! It's definitely something to be proud of. Everybody has that one accomplishment that they feel is their best. Mine is playing the roll of Miss Adelaide in Guys and Dolls. (Just a high school production, but I feel like I did such a good job that I'll never be able to top it.) Yours is a little more prominent, just sayin' I totally get the feeling.
