This volume of Buck Rogers dailies is much like the other four physically. It's a year and a half or so of very well reproduced daily strips, two to a page. It has a nice introduction by Eugene Serger comparing and contrasting the various artists and writers that worked on the strip over the years.

There are four storylines in this volume. Two are fairly long and two fairly short. None are really outstanding but quite interesting and serviceable space opera fare. Unlike previous volumes the new gadgets are merely plot devices; there is no real clever uses that indicate that the implications have been well thought out. There are a few rough edges in plotting. People have a way of disappearing once their duties to the plot are ended; loose ends are not tied up. The constant jealousy between Buck and Wilma is becoming very tiresome. On the plus side Killer Kane only appears briefly; his consort Ardala is the main antagonist for the first storyline. The Palladian pirates and their Venusian allies are an interesting new opponent.

For reasons unknown to me beyond the copyright year there is no indication what date the various strips appeared. Online sources are helpful but to date a particular strip takes some calculation.

Recommended for fans of the series who have read the first four volumes.

I grew up reading Buck Rogers in the newspapers. Hermes Publishers have chosen to republish the Buck Rogers comic strip and are doing a magnificent job of it. Fine paper, clean and clear printing of each strip and a forward that explains so much about the history of the comic strip. If you love the artwork of Dick Calkins (and I do) then you can't beat this combination. Well worth the money!

THIS IS A PRELIMINARY REVIEW UNTIL I READ THE BOOK.

Here we have the next volume of the Buck Rogers dailies, reprinting strips from 1935 thru nearly the end of 36. About a year and a half. Four storylines are reprinted:

D022 - "Prisoners on Uranus" (5/13/35 to 12/16/35)
D023 - "Liquid Light" (12/17/35 to 2/19/36)
D024 - "Mummies of Ceres" (2/20/36 to 4/15/36)
D025 - "Palladian Space Pirates" (4/16/36 to 12/4/36)

The first story, a fairly long one, continues some of the threads from the previous storyline, in which King Innaldo of Mars was overthrown and rescued by Buck and Wilma. They have him on Deimos, one of the moons of Mars. The new Queen of E*, a kingdom of Uranus, has a new weapon, which she used to make an allegiance with the new King of Mars to invade Earth! But instead, she betrays him and takes over Mars as well, when she uses her new superweapon to blow up Deimos!

Buck and Wilma soon discover that this new Queen is really Ardala. How she became Queen is never explained, and she is doing this without Killer Kane around, showing herself to be just as capable a villian without him. Kane does show up, trying to horn in on things. They all return to Uranus as Buck and Wilma try to defeat Ardala. They find a possible ally in a court follower, but fear betrayal. A new character is introduced: Blanka, a Neptune girl who looks just like Ardala, so we have several scenes when they 2 are confused.

This basic storyline is more or less continued in the next sequence, that adds in "liquid light", a new element discovered by Huer.

Artwork by Calkins, writing by Nowlan.
