Buck Rogers

This came out about week ago. The character is being revisited by Hermes Press and a new four issue mini-series is being put out  this August. At first I was a little guarded on this . . . past renditions of the character have not been flattering.

However, on second go around, the character, created in 1929, is a staple of American comic book fiction and deserves an update for modern generations. His look is about the same and he keeps his trademarked jet pack . . . which bizarrely enough one would think would be the one invention we could have mastered in the last 80 years.

Still no jet packs for trolls.

Should be well worth a look see.
