Description

    Buck Rogers (Universal, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41"). A modern-day Rip Van Winkle, Anthony "Buck" Rogers was trapped in a collapsed mine and fell into a state of suspended animation, waking 500 years later, in the year 2419. Buck, who made his fist appearance in the August 1928 issue of Amazing Stories magazine, quickly became a wildly successful comic strip, debuting on January 7, 1929. He conquered the nation's airwaves in 1932, with his own syndicated radio show, and came to the silver screen in 1939, the hero of a thrilling 12-chapter serial, starring Buster Crabbe as Buck, a companion serial to Universal's popular Flash Gordon serials (also starring Crabbe). Paper from this popular serial is extremely scarce, and is rarely offered for sale. The wonderful duotone example offered here, for Chapter 9: "Bodies Without Minds," had fold separations with minor paper loss, tearing and some paper loss at the center crossfold, a large tear in the bottom right that goes into Crabbe's face, as well as several additional tears in the image area. Additionally, the borders have been replaced. The professional restoration applied to this poster is absolutely first rate, returning a like-new appearance to this classic, and hard-to-find, sheet. Good+ on Linen.
