Buck Rogers #1

We’ve always been big Buck Rogers fans here..

We loved the 80’s Gil Gerrard Buck too..

and the recent Dynamite Buck Rogers series – was interesting – artistically but the stories were downright stoopid.

Now along comes Hermes Press, a comic book publisher we’ve never heard off before and they have wowed us with something that is authentic, something that is real and is entertaining.

Yeaah we like and Yeaaah we’ll be looking to buy the second issue of this series too.

Buck Rogers Comic from Dynamite Wraps up – With a really Lame finale July 5, 2010

So…we finally got the FINAL issue of Buck Rogers, and we finally got around to reading it.

IT SUCKS.

IT’S a HORRIBLE WAY TO END A FINE SERIES.

Dynamite Entertainment the publishers of this series should be ashamed of themselves. They had such a great character, a neat twist and some awesome visuals and they FRAKKED IT ALL UP!!

In this final issue – we still have no clue why the moon robots were left behind, or what happened to the people – it’s all just glossed over.

One frame falls to the next with little continuity – Princess Ardalla lays claim to the moon? come on….

But the worst part is how this book has left us hanging.

If this is the FINAL ISSUE – which it is — why introduce a new character? Buck’s daughter from the past – now traveling to the future – is an amazing twist. We want to know more.

Instead we get the END of the series.

What a downer and what a horrible way to end something that could have been so much better.

Dynamite Kills Buck Rogers at issue #12 – Stalls shipping final issue June 17, 2010

We’ve been a fan of Dynamite Entertainment’s Buck Roger revival since the very first issue….actually no we weren’t.

But the series did grow on us and we have looked forward to each new issue to see which way the plot would go.

The last issue we reviewed — #11 – Buck takes on the man on the moon. In issue #10 Buck fights a dude that looks like Hawkman. In #9 he fights the airlords of Han.

In issue #8, Buck loses his ship — again but this time to a nuclear blast underneath the Earth.

Now we find out that issue #12 is the last issue.

That SUCKS.

This comic has more room, more potential and it’s just now hitting its stride. We still don’t know so much about Buck’s past and there is more to see in his future.

But the geniuses that run Dynamite Entertainment apparently think this comic has no legs..so they cut Buck off at the knees.

It was a fun run while it lasted…

But where is this final issue?

WHERE IS BUCK ROGERS #12???

It was supposed to be out on May 26th but never actually shipped. So to add insult to injury, Buck Rogers is canceled by Dynamite and then they shaft the fans by not shipping the final issue (yet? or ever???)

Buck Rogers #10 – Buck fights the Han and a dude that looks like Hawkman April 20, 2010

issue #10 finds Buck on the Han airship — as it turns out they like prawns (eew).

A relatively simple romp in this issue, that doesn’t really solve much other than to lead us to the next set of bad guys.

Yeaah there is another set.

After fighting genetic mutations, humans that live below ground, humans that live in the air..

It’s now time for Buck to fight humans that live on the moon.

Yeaah we’re fans of the new Dynamite Buck Rogers series.

The latest issue #9 starts off a new story arc where we get more insight into the status of Earth.

You see in this version of Buck Rogers, Earth isn’t ruled by just one unified group. There are rulers of the ground, the underground (the weirdos with Nukes that Buck destroyed last issue) and the airlords of Han.

Our sister site, ShowMeSciFiComics.com has a review of the issue #9 up now.

Buck Rogers SUCKS – it’s re-imagined and he’s now fighting talking Bears June 15, 2009

Hey we’re all for re-booting old sci-fi concepts when it makes sense — BSG being the best example. And we LOVED the 80’s TV series.

But the new Dynamite comic book series Buck Rogers is LAME. Issue #0 from free comic book day looked a little slick and we didn’t know what to expect.

Now we’ve got the first real issue and it SUCKS.

Instead of being with NASA ..Buck is a scientist entrepneur figuring out  a new propulsion system … he gets vaulted into the future – we don’t know how- crash lands in a ditch and Wilma      (yeah she’s back) finds him…

But they gotta run..cause Bears are coming..

Buck says when you see a bear just play dead and it’ll leave you alone but these are walking talking human stalking bears…it’s about as lame an idea as anyone can imagine.

the costumes for the Earth’ers are slick, beyond that this new Buck Rogers is quite possibly the worst iteration of Buck Rogers in his 80+ years of life.

We won’t be buying this crap ever again.

Buck Rogers Movie Coming Thanks to Frank Miller December 19, 2008

It’s not Sin to love Buck Rogers – is it?

Sin City director Frank Miller (he also did 300) is apparently set to write and direct a new movie version of Buck Rogers. I remember the 80’s TV show with Gil Gerrard fondly (remember Hawk?)

How could you not love Erin Gray’s spandex-clad Wilma Deering?

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Miller will write and direct his own big-screen take on the comic serial; while the creator has only begun to sketch ideas, it’s expected to be a darker take, with many of Miller’s signature visual elements and themes, such as corruption and redemption.

It’s likely to be a priority project for Miller, though he has been mulling a “Sin City” sequel.
