    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Apr 25, 2009

    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. By the by, I see dozens of loopholes out of the ending. So even should the talent decide to return to this particular era in Buck's life, I'm sure it won't be boring. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Apr 21, 2009

    Digging up old properties and dusting them off can be tricky. Too often the property is mired in past continuity thanks to estates and creators, causing the property to fade away, never to be heard from again. Dynamite has had a good record as of late with properties like Zorro, The Lone Ranger, and The Man With No Name, and after reading this first issue, it looks like the company is going to do the same thing with Buck Rogers. If you hadn't planned on picking up this issue, I say grab it now. At the very least, if you don't like it, you've only wasted a quarter, but my guess is you'll enjoy the issue for what it is, and you'll feel Buck Rogers #0 is deserving of a 4 Star Rating.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Apr 27, 2009

    I think what most impressed me about this story is how unconventional the ending is. Sure, Buck saves the day, of course; who'd expect anything less. But as this is a cheap preview issue, I was expecting the status quo that was quickly established to be maintained once I reached the final page. Instead, there's a surprising cliffhanger that suggests the set-up earlier in the issue and the supporting cast won't be around in forthcoming episodes of the series. This property is usually referred to as Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, but I notice that time element is missing from the title of this comic book. Perhaps Beatty has other locales and times in mind for Buck. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 22, 2009

    My only hope is that the pages shown here are not excerpts to "Buck Rogers" #1, but rather a prequel to the adventures there. It seems as though this story is going to be separate from whatever may be in the first "true" issue of "Buck Rogers," as this issue's last page declares that the beginning to this story can be found in "Buck Rogers" #1.
