Flash Gordon in Finland

Here's a logo that was used only once in the Flash Gordon book from 1938. The caption says "We sing of the guns and the brave". I don't know if this read also in the original Gordons.

The Flash Gordon series was originally published in Finland in the weekly story paper* Jännityslukemisto/Suspense Stories that was Ilmarinen's product.

* I hesitate to use the words "pulp mag" here, since Jännityslukemisto was never a real pulp. The paper is right, but the size is too big. It's too close to A4 (this standard size may not be too familiar for our American readers.)
