Flash Gordon Commercial Art
by Al Williamson

The first three images are advertisements drawn by Williamson for the Union Carbide Corporation. Williamson has taken situations and characters from the classic Alex Raymond years on the Flash Gordon strip, and has Dr. Zarkov providing devices made from Union Carbide products to help Flash and his friends extricate themselves from some hazardous situations. These commercial pieces are extremely rare, and were apparently distributed within the Union Carbide company and to advertising agencies.
The final image is of a record jacket drawn by Al Williamson for MGM.
