YMMV / Flash Gordon

  • Mainstream Obscurity: While popular and influential in its heyday, the original comics today are best known through Pop-Cultural Osmosis, most prominently through the 1980 film.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny
  • Reality Subtext: As World War II loomed on the horizon, strips featuring Ming's concentration camps appeared.
  • What an Idiot!: In the city of the Hawk Men, Gordon has a really bad moment where he suggests Thun take cover behind a door. And the signs around the doors read things like "Dragon's Pit" and "Death".
