DESCRIPTION
This coffee table book collects the original Buck Rogers comic strips which debuted on January 7, 1929. Within these pages, thrill as the futuristic spaceman Rogers meets the Mongols, the Tiger Men of Mars, the Monkey Men of Planet X, ventures to the sunken city of Atlantis, and defends Earth against a Martian invasion. This is the original sci-fi hero who inspired the adventures of Flash Gordon, Adam Strange, and a young George Lucas to create Star Wars. Also included is an extensive glossary to the Buck Rogers universe, diagrams to spaceships including Roger's own Flying Needle, a map of the Planet Venus, along with pictures of weapons, vehicles, and gadgets. Some of the strips are in B&W while others appear in full color.
