Comic Strips are formatted different ways for different size requirements. The “drop panel” is a panel or tier of the strip that can be omitted because of size restrictions without affecting the gag or storyline.

For example, Here’s the Sunday strip for July 3, 2016 with the drop panel…

Flash Gordon’s Origin

Flash Gordon Sunday pages from 8/19/2001 – 10/28/2001

My homage to Alex Raymond via Flash Gordon’s origin sequence.
For those who are familiar with Raymond’s work you’ll notice I tried to recreate a number of his panels from the 1930s throughout.
Hope you enjoy!
