Howard Chaykin starter ny Buck Rogers serie for Hermes Press

Hermes Press har haft overraskende succés med deres hc’er af dailies og Sundays af alle sf seriers moder, Buck Rogers, en serie, der egentlig ikke er særlig godt tegnet, men som enhver science fiction fan velsagtens har hørt om og måske ligefrem har anskaffet de dyre hc’er fra HP. Nogle bind er ved at være udsolgt, så er det er om at få fingeren ud og få bestilt, før priserne ryger gennem loftet. Nu har superstjernen, den allestedsnærverende Howard Chaykin, sagt ja til at starte en ny runde af Buck Rogers for det 21. århundrede. En pd serie, som Dynamite ikke fik lov til at ødelægge, ha ha ha. Buck Rogers kan dækkes i tre faser nu: Moderserien, Gray Morrow’s run, og nu også en hæfte serie af Howard Chaykin.

BUCK ROGERS the first, best, original Sci-Fi hero is back in an all-new comic book series from Hermes Press with art and stories by HOWARD CHAYKIN.

For the past five years Hermes Press has been producing critically acclaimed, best selling archival reprints of the original Buck Rogers daily and Sunday comic strips; now the company will be offering an all new take on this classic series helmed by renowned comic book artist and writer Howard Chaykin.

(…)

Chaykin’s new series will take the feature back to its origins and have the look and feel of the “classic” Buck Rogers. Hermes Press publisher Dan Herman believes that the strength of the original newspaper strip is “its great sci-fi tales, characters, and its vision of the future — it’s a great tradition to draw on and this new series will pay homage to the classic version of the newspaper strip.”

Chaykin feels that Buck Rogers is one of the great science-fiction features and is completely revved up about creating a new version of the feature. “When Dan casually asked me whether I had any interest in reviving BUCK ROGERS, my reaction was first physical–genuine goose pimples–followed by complete delight at the thought of paying back a concept that was so utterly seminal in my thinking about our medium and our field.”
