    The Comic Addiction - Chris Partin Jul 18, 2009

    Buck Rogers has not been around too long, but I have really enjoyed what I have read so far. I like the characters, the dialogue, and the storytelling direction the creative team is taking on this book. I think Scott Beatty has the experience through his past work that readers should have nothing to worry about. I think Buck Rogers will be one of Dynamite’s best comics. Read Full Review

    At the end of the tunnel, Buck finds out that clothes maketh the man. The clever twist in the plot and the artwork neatly brings Buck Rogers full circle. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jul 16, 2009

    Carlos Rafael's artwork reminds me quite a bit of Andrea (Nova) Di Vito's work. Both boast styles obviously influenced by pop super-hero art, but both also handle space opera and sci-fi adventure adeptly. I really like the design work throughout the book; there's a nice mix of more modern designs and a sense of pulp design that's in keeping with the property's origins from decades ago.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Jul 19, 2009

    This issue is really straight forward - there's more exposition, more secrets revealed, a few fisticuffs as Wilma and Buck save each other from being slaughtered by two genetically altered creatures, and a few bigger implications for the direction the story may take in the near future. A few gripes with art aside, Buck Rogers #2 continues to make this property interesting and keeps the name circulating 81 years after being first introduced. Buck Rogers #2 is worth the read, and earns 3.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
