William "Buck" Rogers (or "Anthony 'Buck' Rogers," as he was first called) was created by Philip Francis in 1929. The character debuted in Armageddon: 2149 A. D. and has since been depicted in serials, comics, books, cinema, and television. To learn more about the history of Buck Rogers, and a particular collectible in our collection, we invite you to watch our mini-documentary, Bang for your Buck, below.
