    Surely not the same Flint Dille who worked on the GI Joe cartoons all those years? That would be cool.As many have said over the years, Rogers was eclipsed by one of his imitators, Flash Gordon, for a lot of reasons, not the least of which being the sumptuous art and the singlarly unique villain Ming the Merciless. Flash beat Buck to the theaters as well, ironically getting Buster Crabbe to play him, the man who made Flash such a phenomenon a few years before.

    (A) I like the Gerard Buck Rogers, and i know a fair number of people who did. De gustibus, and all that.(B) If you think the Gerard series was bad – i now have a permanent Bad Feeling about any film project Frank Miller is involved with – i can just see Wilma Deering in stilettoes and leather with a whip telling Buck he's been a bad boy…

    I'm not a huge Frank Miller fan and I'm concerned with The Spirit footage that I have seen, but he could be right for Buck Rodgers. What I've heard about the original novella and what I've seen of the early comic strip, was fairly gritty for its time. He might not screw it up.

    Uh-oh. If his take on Buck Rogers is anything like his strip Lance Blastoff…

    I've seen two "Spirit" trailers, and while both look like "Sin City", only one is the "sexy" item, the other later trailer looks a lot more like Eisner's Creation: Gritty and only a little "sexy", but in the way that a gun moll is, threatening but beautiful. I had heard about the negativity regarding the screening of the 'sexy' trailer at the San Diego CC, and groaned. Now I'm not sure at all.But as to Buck Rogers: I am willing to do whatever I can to help assure that due justice is paid to this pioneer of both comics and science fiction. Preserve the storyline, change the "Mongols" (the original baddies, undoubtedly China 25th-Century style) into some weird conglomerate of Eurasians, so they can't say non-whites get all the baddie bits, keep the 'lifting' element found by 2400, and the austere post-destruction feel of America, scarce resources, prop-airplanes (fuel absence)… the list goes on doesn't it?I thought I was gasping about the ongoing project "A Princess of Mars", and now this!Count me in.
