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.

Beatty seems to be attempting to capture the awe and wonder of past Buck Rogers stories, while also grounding it in 21st century sensibilities of realism, and the two clash heavily, creating a mishmash of storytelling.
