Review

"It''s terrific. It contains lots of information I was unaware of such as the inventiveness of the backroom teams. It''s brilliant!"
Mike Hodges, Director FLASH GORDON
 
"This book is a masterpiece. It is more than worthy of the film. Flash Gordon is a comic book work of art. This book is a work of art, it''s amazing, it is perfection. I know no science fiction film that is covered so brilliantly as this book covers Flash Gordon. It''s a treasure house. It left me breathless. It is absolutely sensational."

"Flash Gordon the Official Story of the Film provides an  unprecedented historical account of the 1980 film." SYFY Wire
 
"John Walsh has assembled an impressive number of new interviewees and trawled the archives. Even the most hardcore fans will something new. It''s the visuals that really proves it worth. From original ''30s Alex Raymond comic strips to on-set photos and concept art from Nicolas Roeg''s abandoned version of the movie, it''s as much of a feast for the eyes as a Mongo sky." 
SFX Magazine
