Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon 1/12/2003 – Photo Reference

Today’s Flash Gordon strip (5/3/2015) originally ran on January 12, 2003.


And here’s some photo reference I took at the time.

First up is me (in a bathrobe) as Ming.


And next up is my wife’s nephew Chris as Flash,
with my six-year-old son Leo stepping stepping in as Ming.


Stay tuned for more Flash photo reference from the vault in upcoming weeks…
