By a rip of Flash Gordon, I mean that drawing of Batman on the cover was traced directly from a drawing of Flash Gordon. Kane was well known for doing this kind of thing all the time.
As far as being crude by modern standarsd yes, that's true, but Kane's artwork ther was crude even for that time. There was plenty of contemoperaneous comic book artists that made Kane's stuff look like the scribblings of a child in comparison.
