I loved these comics and the concept they were based on when I was a kid. The idea of a handsome young scientist who is zapped to a distant planet and then returned on a regular basis, all caused by a natural phenomenon he figures out how to use, is terrific.

The suit he wears, with its cool rocket pack, was something I especially loved -- along with his slender girlfriend (and later his wife), Alanna. She was drawn by Carmine Infantino at first, a very slender gal from the artist who drew the Flash (also slender in his early days), but the artist who took over rounded Alanna out considerably.

Not a bad thing, really, but I liked her the way she was.





Erin Gray from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century would have been perfect for the role in a movie version.



Erin looked much better with dark hair anyway.



I want these action figures! Very Happy
