TUROK: DINOSAUR HUNTER #8, PAGE 12, PANEL 1. Script by Greg Pak. Line art by Takeshi Miyazawa.

I love Tak art so much it burns.

FLASH’S FIRST FLIGHT, Page 3, Panel 1, written and drawn by Chris Eliopoulos. Appearing in FLASH GORDON ANNUAL #1. 

If there is a magic in story writing, and I am convinced there is, no one has ever been able to reduce it to a recipe that can be passed from one person to another. The formula seems to lie solely in the aching urge of the writer to convey something he feels important to the reader. If the writer has that urge, he may sometimes, but by no means always, find the way to do it. You must perceive the excellence that makes a good story good or the errors that makes a bad story. For a bad story is only an ineffective story.

It ain’t hard. You come up with some text & direction:

Meet Flash Gordon.
(cropped widescreen of FG #1 Page 3 Panel 1, where Flash is screaming. Include his balloon, not
the title/credits)
Flash is great at everything on Earth (as long as it’s not important).
He just crash-landed his space-plane in some place called Arboria, where a blue archer guy named Prince Barin believes he and his friends are “royal historians” from the oppressive Ming regime of Mongo. 
The historian thing was Dale Arden’s idea. (She’s smarter than Flash.)
Professor Zarkov’s here too. Mostly drinking.
ADVENTURE!

You send that over to Jason Ullmeyer at Dynamite, along with a crummy thumbnail:
