Additional Notes

  • Buck Rogers was first introduced in 1928 as Anthony Rogers in Philip Francis Nowlan's novella "Armageddon 2419 A.D" in the pulp magazine "Amazing Stories." The character was renamed Buck Rogers when John F. Dille, president of the National Newspaper Syndicate of America relaunched the hero as his own comic strip, "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" that was published from 1929 to 1967. Radio shows, films and TV shows on ABC and NBC followed.
