Friday Fun BIG APPLE COMIX "Over and Under"

In a "split screen" tale by Neal Adams and Larry Hama & Ralph Reese...
...we witness a typical day (and night) in NYC told from opposite ends of the social and financial spectrum.
Unfortunately, it's so sordid and sleazy we can't show it to you here, so you'll have to go over to our "brother" blog Not Safe for Work Comics to read this never-reprinted tale from 1975!
And you better be 18 (or over)!

Reading Room FLASH GORDON "and the Space Pirates" Conclusion

...there's more to the plot, but it's easier for you to just read Part 1 & Part 2 than have me explain it.
BTW, Patch has her silver/white hair and original clothes from Part 1 back, while Flash is in a new uniform!
Sadly, we've never seen the follow-up confrontation.
The tale, illustrated by Gil Kane, appeared in the back of The Phantom #20 (1966) and the writer is unknown.
The storyline wasn't concluded in Flash's King Comics title and neither Patch nor Straker have ever appeared anywhere else.

Reading Room FLASH GORDON "and the Space Pirates" Part 2

...wow, the opening caption covered the plotline perfectly!
You'll note Flash is wearing a more ornate outfit while Patch's clothes are the same, but mis-colored (as is her hair, which was silver/white in the previous chapter)!
Illustrated by Gil Kane, replacing Wally Wood.
The writer is unknown.
Though Flash had his own comic at this time, this three-parter appeared in the back of The Phantom's title from the same publisher, King Comics.
(All the King Comics books did this, presumably to expose their target audience to other titles they might not otherwise read.)
The particular tale appeared in the back of The Phantom #19 (1966).

Reading Room FLASH GORDON "and the Space Pirates" Part 1

Ya want space opera?
Now here's SPACE OPERA!
...starring the one-and-only Flash Gordon as rendered by EC Comics legend Wally Wood!
Illustrated by Wally Wood and his studio.
Wood (and writer Harvey Kurtzman) had previously-done the hysterical MAD parody "Flesh Garden" (which you can read HERE), but this is his only "official" Flash Gordon work.
The writer is unknown.
Though Flash had his own comic at this time, this three-parter appeared in the back of The Phantom's title from the same publisher, King Comics.
The particular tale appeared in the back of The Phantom #18 (1966), which was actually the first issue of the series from King Comics.
(They just continued the numbering from the previous publisher, Gold Key!)

Reading Room STRANGE TALES OF THE UNUSUAL "Gift"

Do we really appreciate things given to us freely?
Or do we always think there's an ulterior motive behind them?
Illustrated by Bob Powell, this never-reprinted tale from Atlas' Strange Tales of the Unusual #1 (1955) suggests Mankind should be a bit more trusting and less paranoid.
