Unusual version of Flash Gordon

This Wonder Book from 1956 depicts Flash as a pith-helmeted wild kingdom animal-napper with a jet powered helicopter. I don't know the story behind this odd role--perhaps the project was done with a different lead and they added Flash for, well, flash? It's not like he's identifiable a Flash Gordon. At any rate, this was MY first exposure to FG, and I was confused by the Universe Conquering hero I expereinced later.
