The protagonist from this book was later adapted in to the character Buck Rogers, which is why I read it.
I was looking for some flash of what I have come to expect from Buck Rogers in these stories, but it pretty much wasn't there at all.
I need to revisit the early Buck Rogers comic strip and figure out at which point the character evolves to become what I grew up with. Is it at the point that he adopts the name Buck over Anthony? Or is it much later?
