Buck Rogers book brings back memories

Filed under: Uncategorized — doughaslam @ 9:48 am

When I was a kid, my big nerd pleasure was getting big books of classic comic reprints out of the library: Superman, Batman, Flash Gordon- and this one, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. My mother-in-law picked this up for my son at an estate sale, unaware that I would go crazy for it myself.

The books spans the life of the daily- and color Sunday- comic strip from 1929-1946. It doesn’t include the 1950’s strips by Ray Bradbury, but he does write the foreword.

I look forward to reacquainting myself with Buck, Wilma and Killer Kane, and showing my son as well.

Any other Buck Rogers fans out there?

  1. Depends if being a Dr. Theopolis fan counts…

  2. Ah memories. I remember Twiki’s comment to “Eat lead sucker!” became a playground catchphrase at school. It sounds so quaint now.
