Tribute to Flash Gordon in helmet form

Flash Gordon is a science fiction comic created by cartoonist Alex Raymond on January 7, 1934 for the King Features Syndicate, as a Sunday strip.

It was adapted for television and film, and possibly the best-known icon of visual science fiction until the appearance of Star Wars.

Belonging to the genre known as space opera, it is an action series with a rather delusional starting point: Flash Gordon, a famous American football player for the New York Jets, and Dale Arden, the hero's future girlfriend, parachute when a meteor hits the wing of the plane in which they were traveling.

They fall near the laboratory where the scientist Hans Zarkov prepares his plans to divert the path of a larger meteorite that is going to hit Earth.

The plan consists of nothing less than launching a rocket at the meteorite, which forces Dale Arden and Flash Gordon to climb at gunpoint. As a result, and without any explanation from the writer, the three end up on the planet Mongo. Raymond's work on Flash Gordon is graphically one of the classic works of American comics.

In 2014, the helmet brand NZI presented a collection that paid tribute to the art of Raymond and his hero Flash Gordon.
