Hermes Press has released the first cover for Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, a four-issue mini-series written and drawn by Howard Chaykin premiering August 2013.

Here’s how Hermes Press describes the book:

“Before Star Trek and Star Wars, Buck Rogers captivated audiences around the world and made science fiction a national obsession. Now, over 80 years after the creation of the newspaper strip that became a household word, Howard Chaykin has returned the character and his universe back to basics: Buck Rogers, former World War I ace is accidentally suspended in time only to awaken to a new and different earth, 500 years in the future, fragmented by war and ruled by an omnipotent force — the Chinese. Now, Buck along with Colonel Wilma Deering, begin a new fight, to free the United States!”

Story/Art: Keith Tucker

Keith Tucker posted an update and sneak peek at his Shell Scott graphic novel in progress at his website.

Tucker writes: My Shell Scott graphic novel continues, I was originally going to do this book with Mark Ellis scripting, but Mark’s busy schedule made it tough for him to get to it. With Mark’s blessing, I jumped ahead to a safe part of the book and began adapting it on my own, Mark has since let me continue on my own, and i greatly appreciate that, lets work on something else later together. So here’s my latest page from chapter 14 of Dead Man’s Walk.

Look for more Shell Scott news at All Pulp as it becomes available.
