Flash Gordon’s Trip to Mars (1938, and Robert F. Hill), Chapter 11: Human Bait

By Andrew Wickliffe on Sep 19, 2018 From The Stop Button

And it’s back to the Martian imperial city or whatever it’d be called this chapter. After a surprising cliffhanger resolution–brainwashed Jean Rogers does indeed stab Buster Crabbe in the back–Crabbe and his male sidekicks (Frank Shannon, Donald Kerr, and Richard Alexander) go running around in the ...

Flash Gordon’s Trip to Mars (1938, and Robert F. Hill), Chapter 7: The Prisoner of Mongo

By Andrew Wickliffe on Sep 10, 2018 From The Stop Button

The Prisoner of Mongo title suggests, well, whoever was titling the chapters wasn’t paying attention to the actual script–much like last chapter’s title, calling the Forest People the Tree-Men–but it does indeed turn out Buster Crabbe and company will end up prisoners of Mongo. At least, of Ming (Ch... Read full article
