Flash Gordon poster Who needs CGI for your spaceships when you can use fishing line and sparklers?

I can’t resist another dip into Tony Nourmand and Graham Marsh’s Science Fiction Poster Art book, this time with a poster for a film serial based on a newspaper comic strip. Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe was the third and final Flash serial when it was originally released in 1940 and is still available as a three disc DVD set.

• You can view episodes of the serial on The Internet Archive and it is also available on DVD
