Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Vintage Union Carbide ads from comic books featuring Flash Gordon:
In the early 1970s, the sales force at King Features Syndicate got more pro-active about their funny page characters bringing home some licensing bacon. These were TRADE ads that ran in business periodicals like Today's Modern Engineer. You can imagine how vividly they stood out in that environment. The artist, Al Williamson, was already a legend when these ads ran; a few years later, George Lucas assigned him to draw the daily Star Wars comic strip.

I love this stuff. Can I post it with the images on my blog?

Feel free to use them. They come from my husband's collection -- he's a fanboy -- all he asks is that you mention the illustrations are by Al Williamson.

FG was reassigned to the "outer worlds" after his stint at the Bhopal, India plant in the mid-80s didn't work out so well.
