Thanks for the praise, Chaykin is doing an awesome job on Buck Rogers and we appreciate it!
Buck Rogers Returns!
Howard Chaykin’s revival of the first, best, and original sci-fi hero returns in August with an all-new four book story-line
Before Star Trek and Star Wars, Buck Rogers captivated audiences around the world and made science fiction a national obsession. Now, over eighty years after the creation of the newspaper strip that became a household word, Howard Chaykin has returned the character and his universe back to basics: Buck Rogers, former World War I ace is accidentally suspended in time only to awaken to a new and different earth, 500 years in the future, fragmented by war and ruled by an omnipotent force— the Chinese. Now, Buck along with Colonel Wilma Deering, begin a new fight, to free the United States!
Chaykin’s long anticipated revival of science-fiction’s most archetypal character will hit comic stores in August with Issue #1. See June Previews for more solicitation information.

Spurred on by the popularity of “Star Wars” the networks invested in science fiction and fantasy, delivering the first iteration of “Battlestar Galactica” in 1978 and “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” a year later. “Buck Rogers” imagined that a nuclear holocaust had taken out Earth, but that the human race had ultimately been recreated and put under the protection of the Earth Defense Directorate, a kind of more ambitious Department of Homeland Security.
"In one room, where a rocketship-like machine straight out of Buck Rogers blankets doughnuts in a blizzard of powdered sugar, Jim Riddell makes the doughnuts, as he has been doing since 1966."
"When I grew up, we could only imagine this stuff in a Buck Rogers movie…and here we are, talking on Skype to different countries, emailing photos and having photos on phones. If you told me back then this would be how it was in real-life, I’d never believe it."
