This issue: "The Airlords of Han: Part 1 (of 2)!" Wilma Deering has been sent as an envoy to the city-org of Han, but she hasn't returned... and Han is causing trouble. In order to get "aboard" the hovering city-state, Buck has to ally himself with Black Barney, an air-pirate who trades regularly with the Han, but Barney is playing both sides... what could possibly go wrong? This, that, and everything, that's what!

    Of course all three men, including Dr. Huer decide that they can't leave Wilma to a vulture like Harrier, but they must strategize instead of simply charging on trans-suit "steeds." This decision leaves the book on a tantalizing cliffhanger again alluding to the original Buck Rogers comic strip. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Feb 28, 2010

    When the series first launched, I was a little hesitant in embracing the story fully. Early reviews were not that great, and for the last couple of months have hovered around the 3 Star rating. For some reason, this issue seems fresh and exciting (even with the odd 30 year old Star Wars references scattered throughout), and I like what I'm reading. It finally feels like this series is hitting its stride, no longer languishing in the early stages of property development. It's nice that the focus of this issue isn't just on Buck Rogers, but instead, gives readers a look at the lead female character and her troubles. Already I like the Black Barney character, and if this two-arc story wraps up with a sky city blowing up (or at least getting crippled enough to have it go away for a while), then I'll be one happy camper. Buck Rogers #9 is a better jumping on point than any before, and earns a well deserved 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Feb 26, 2010

    "Buck Rogers" #9 doesn't push the envelope or challenge any conventions, but it tells a good-hearted romantic adventure in the sleek but imperfect future. With jetpacks and sky-sleds and something called "genius bombs." Read Full Review
