I really wish I could remember even a third of what I watched of Buck Rogers when I was a kid.  How the hell is Buck Rogers still alive in 2519 and was born in 1989?  I think a little background and origin story would make this a hell of a lot more accessible to the new reader. 

Taking the story at face value, it’s heating up to be one hell of a ride.  The art is above average and the story telling falls under the same rating.  I’m not overly excited about what I see here, but it’s piqued my interest just enough to keep me coming back for more.

Story: 3 - Good
Art: 2 - Average


  1. He made it to the future by blowing a hole in the space time continuum. The book explained that objects of large mass (or with large amounts of gravity) bend the fabric of space time (ie: why planets orbit the sun instead of get sucked into it). When Buck used the Gravity drive and tried to slingshot past the planet to catch the rocket, the gravitational stresses of his ships drive combined with it’s forced orbit, were to much for the fabric of space/time to withstand. So in other words, Buck broke space/time and blew a hole from the past into the future.

    I’ll tell you this much, the writer did his homework for this. The science in this book is spot on!

  2. Sweet.  Thanks man:)  I think I caught a lot of that, I just wasn’t quite vested enough to go back and figure out what the hell was going on.

  3. No problem dude. I’m pretty sure Beatty was just planting seeds for a future explanation. I’m sure he’d rather keep us guessing for now.
