    One thought on “Buck Rogers, Volume 1”

    1. This is rough. I tried and, I hope, succeeded in going into this with an open mind. I was just jazzed to see that someone was trying to do Buck Rogers again after a very long absence.My memories of Buck Rogers are of spandex white suits and disco music, courtesy of one Gil Gerard and an 80′s interpretation of the character. But really, Buck Rogers has been around a lot longer than that.Anthony Rogers first appeared in the pages of Amazing Stories waaaay back in 1928. He pulled a Rip Van Winkle [...]

    2. It's refreshing to read this light-hearted story where even seemingly inescapable situations are viewed with great optimism by the main character. It has similarities to Warlord of Mars, but is more modern in approach, from designs to dialogue.The first two issues have flashbacks explaining how Buck ended up in a future where humans are in a cease fire with the Pack. The Pack use genetically engineered and cybernetically enhanced creatures from a rocket launched in Buck's days. It contains DNA f [...]

    3. This reboot of the classic future space hero that originally appeared in 1928 has a lot of potential. While it is the first volume of a new series, it approaches the introduction of the characters in a manner that is different and confusing. Fans of Buck Rogers will know the background story of how a man from the twentieth century ended up in the twenty-fifth century, but modern readers will likely not know the story. This graphic novel jumps temporally from Rogers making his fateful flight in t [...]

    4. Fuck me, this book's like one of those political cartoons with anthropomorphised countries. Buck Rogers is such a yank. He has that cool detachment that's so prevalent in American cartoons that it's like the country's trying to compensate for their tendency to over-react. Then again, it's too easy to sound anti-American now with the "buy our shit" attitude of any international superpower. I'm digressing, anyway. I bought this because I'd seen a scan with a bionic bear and I'm hopelessly arcoudap [...]

    5. Nostalgia probably plays a part in this highly favorable review. I got hooked on Buck as a kid when I read first the original pulp novellas (there 2) and my Xmas gift was a huge coffee table collection of the strips (at the start written by the same who wrote the novellas). The first volume of this series does a slight updating so the science doesn't seem too bad or too far out. A couple of amusing plot twists and well paced action.

    6. I'm a fan of previous Buck Rogers incarnations, but this updating falls flat on so many levels. The storyline is confusing at first, the art rather stiff, the main villains are uninteresting, and the addition of talking animals just seems odd. It's all played much too seriously, and could have benefited by a much more tongue-in-cheek approach. A major disappointment.

    7. This book was just plain fun. It was a nice modern science fiction adventure with plenty of hints and nods to the classics of the 1930s and 40s. Plus a few Easter Eggs for fans of the TV series with Gil Gerard and Erin Gray thrown in for good measure.

    8. Scott Beatty does a really great new "take" on Buck Rogers by merging the story plots from the 1930's and 1970's with his own 21st century ideas. The book has lots of action and adventure. Good read.

    9. Uno de esos tomos de lectura pendiente desde que lo compré hace un par de años. Es bastante meh por lo general tanto a nivel de guión como de dibujo (el dibujo es mejor de hecho)
