The future begins now! The reviews are in and Buck Rogers is a hit! Here’s what people are saying about issue #0 (which juts hit stands as we prepare to solicit issue #3:
ComicsBulletin: “In short, the writing and art on Buck Rogers whets my appetite for more, and just because as advertised this is the end of Buck’s adventures, there are enough questions silently posed to serve as the backbone for a series.”

ComicsWaitingRoom: “This is sort of the makeover that Battlestar Galactica got, but in comic book form. If it can reach that series’ level of quality, Dynamite will have struck gold.”
BestShots: “Buck Rogers #0 really is a textbook example of what a title-teaser should be. Great art, solid storytelling, and dangling mysteries that will likely bring you back. And don’t forget the giant paramecia. Or the quarter.”

ProjectFanboy: “Whether you’re a fan of the comic strip, the serials, the TV show, or any of Bucks many incarnations, this has something for you to get into. And for a quarter? How can you NOT check out #0?”

MajorSpoilers: “Dynamite has had a good record as of late with properties like Zorro, The Lone Ranger, and The Man With No Name, and after reading this first issue, it looks like the company is going to do the same thing with Buck Rogers. If you hadn’t planned on picking up this issue, I say grab it now.”

ComicBookResources: “The art is strong and clean and accentuated by the eye-popping colors of Carlos Lopez.”
Get on board with Buck Rogers, writer Scott Beatty and artist Carlos Rafael! And let’s not forget about those awesome John Cassaday covers! Issue #3 continues the exciting opening arc as Buck finds out more about his new home in the 25th Century and continues to long for the past he left behind
