Buck Rogers has a long and incredible history in both print in film! If you were lucky enough to pick up the Free Comic Book Day 'Buck Rogers 25th Century A.D.'.
Written and drawn by Rick Yager,we get two complete stories originally printed in 1936 and 1937. Here you get to see Buck and Wilma Deering as he was introduced and dare i say it...it's purely magical.
