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 from Hermes Press.
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.
