Description: The saga of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, the world’s most famous science-fiction newspaper strip, continues with Volume Three of Hermes Press’ complete reprint of this ground-breaking title. More exciting adventures of Buck Rogers, Wilma Deering, Killer Kane, and Ardala in seven complete self-contained stories are featured in this third volume of the series. Volume Three continues the newspaper strip continuity where Volume Two left off, with the next adventure of the series that got America hooked on sci-fi.
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Volume Three has it all: space ships, anti-gravity belts, damsels in distress, invaders from other worlds, nefarious villains, and, of course, heroes.
Included in this volume are two more years of the strip, from 1932 to 1934. Volume Three also features a special 16 page introductory essay by noted science-fiction writer and pop culture historian Ron Goulart and an afterword detailing how many of the predications about the future from the strip came to pass just as Buck Rogers had visualized.
