Brick Bradford-Paul Norris-1967

BRICK BRADFORD, the newspaper strip, was a long-running and quite successful second string version of FLASH GORDON. It was even made into a movie serial. For most of its newspaper life it was drawn by former AQUAMAN artist Paul Norris. Although there were many strip reprints in licensed King comic books over the years, here we have, from King Features' sixties attempt at self-publishing, a rare all -new, made for comics BRICK BRADFORD tale by Norris. Unfortunately, after all those years with the pace of a comic strip, this story is one of the dullest sci-fi tales ever. Pretty, though.
