Dynamite Entertainment has announced that its Buck Rogers series will conclude in May with issue No. 12. In the concluding chapter of “Moonfall,” written by Scott Beatty and drawn by Carlos Rafael, Buck and his allies discover that the greatest threat to Earth is neither aliens nor warring city-states, but from a Lunar “separatist” colony that has the most dangerous (and simplest) weapon ever devised, according to Dynamite’s release.
“‘Buck Rogers’ #12 is the grand finale to “Season One” of the Dynamite series,” said writer Scott Beatty in the news release. “And as befitting a season capper for this series, it’s chock full of action, double-crosses, and sci-fi intrigue on the Moon! There’s an ending, a beginning, and a close encounter that Buck NEVER imagined as the past finally catches up with him in the 25th century!”
Buck Rogers made his first newspaper appearance January 7, 1929 and was repopularized in the late 1970s/early 1980s in a television program starring Gil Gerard and Erin Gray.
