Notes
Indicia title confirmed for issues #5-6, 11-16.

Based on the TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979-1981), which was based on the Buck Rogers comic strip (1929-1967). Despite lasting longer than the TV series, this comic is based entirely on the first season of the TV series. None of the premise changes, new cast members, etc. added to the second season of the TV series are seen in the comic book.

#10 was not published. The Comic Reader #185 (11/1980) said that Buck Rogers #10, cover dated 01/1981, was supposed to be released 10/27/1980 and carry the book length "The Madness Without -- The Madness Within" by J. Marc DeMatteis and Al McWilliams. Apparently, this didn't happen due to distribution problems experienced by Western at the time, and it was rescheduled for one of the mass-distributed three-packs, but it doesn't look like the missing #10 was included in any of these. The story was printed in German in Die Actionhelden (Condor, 1978 Series) #13, and was reprinted in one of the versions of Condor Superhelden Taschenbuch (Condor, 1978 series) #16.
