By the time of these strips, Flash Gordon was a massive hit; appearing in newspapers, novels, movie serials, and comic books, and entertaining millions. These are the earliest daily newspaper adventures, running independently of the Sunday strip with the rapid-fire pace that came of installments that appeared six days a week.
Beginning on May 27, 1940, these first adventures include Princess Lita, Freeland, and War on Earth.
Don Moore was the writer who worked for years with Flash Gordon creator Alex Raymond. When the series expanded from the Sunday adventures to a daily newspaper strip, Moore was joined by Austin Briggs, Raymond's assistant and the man who would ultimately replace Raymond on the Sunday pages, as well. Briggs was one of the founders of the Famous Artists School, and was inducted into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1969.
