    Al Williamson Flash Gordon #5 Splash Page 1 Original Art (King Features, 1967). When it came to drawing the adventures of Flash Gordon, Al Williamson proved himself the ideal successor to Alex Raymond, and this page hails from what many fans consider to be the peak period of Williamson's storied career. Besides having an elegant approach to drawing heroic fantasy and science fiction characters, Williamson was also a dyed-in-the-wool Buster Crabbe fan-addict. The handsome Crabbe was the perfect choice to play a screen Flash Gordon in the serials, and his exploits inspired the young Williamson to new heights in his figure drawing, and inspiring a passion for Flash that never ebbed. This spectacular title page from "Flash Gordon and the God of the Beastmen" written by Archie Goodwin, has an image area that measures 11" x 14" and the art is in Excellent condition.
