The real Flash Gordon, Sam J Jones, will be live at the Coliseum of Comics roadshow in Jacksonville this weekend. The event is Friday through Sunday, and since we know you’ll all be at Kansas with us on Sunday I would recommend taking your road trip Friday or Saturday. If you’re a huge fan, and have an extra $350 laying around, you can get into the VIP event Saturday where you’ll watch Flash Gordon with Sam as does live movie commentary, and you’ll score an autograph, posters, a t-shirt, selfies and more.
But Sam, also famous for his starring role as himself in the Ted movie with Mark Wahlberg and Seth McFarlane, will be in person all weekend for those of us without random piles of cash laying around. Plus the Roadshow itself has free entry.
Plus if you’re a Queen fan this may be the only time you’ll ever get close to the subject of a Queen song in person. Yes, the Flash Gordon song was a little cheesy “Flash I love you but we only have 14 hours to save the Earth”, but it was Queen so its still freakin’ sweet!
