Buck Rogers In The 25th Century



I've been looking forward to Planet Comicon, Kansas City's premier comic convention. One of the guests of honor is Erin Gray, who was better known as Col. Wilma Deering on that 70's staple Buck Rogers In The 25th Century. Like a lot of kids at the time, I loved the show and bought the Gold Key adaptation of the pilot/movie. Featuring a typical nice painted cover, the interior art by Frank Bolle and Jose Delbo was pretty good too. The script by Paul Newman followed the pilot fairly well and was an entertaining book. I think I need to break out the DVD now!

Erin Gray. Sigh.

Nice to know that Paul Newman was moonlighting as a comic book writer. Who knew?
