Description: [Comic Art/Williamson, Al] Al (Alphonso)Williamson (1931-2010) for Union Carbide Flash Gordon Artwork featuring Bakelite in "SOS From The Powermen of Mongo."

All in fine condition. ++ 5 acetate overlays for the SOS ad: 1 magenta, 1 cyan and 1 yellow, w/ original tape at bottom and top edges and 2 black overlays. All labeled Union Carbide Plastics/ Flash Gordon SOS in overlay at top. Minor tape residue, minor creasing, otherwise very good. Provenance: the material was the property of the Union Carbide corporate advertising executive who worked directly with Williamson and who likely created this particular campaign.
