Buck Rogers #1 banner

After a three-year absence from the comic book racks, the original space hero Buck Rogers returns later this year thanks to Hermes Press and legendary comic talent Howard Chaykin. Last seen in 2010 and published by Dynamite Entertainment, their Buck Rogers series lasted thirteen issues beginning with a #0 issue and going through issue #12. But, this August, Hermes Press brings us a brand new four-issue series, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, that returns Buck Rogers to his roots and promises to be quite a thrill ride.

Here’s the press release, courtesy of Hermes Press:

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.

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century issue #1; art and script by Howard Chaykin; colors by Jesus Aburto; 4 part series. Issue #1 available in August; two covers available, general release and special variant; 32 pages; $3.99; full color; 6.625 x 10.25 inches.

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.”

Get ready to blast off this August when Buck Rogers In the 25th Century lands at comic stores everywhere! Here’s a first look at the cover for Buck Rogers In the 25th Century by Howard Chaykin.
