Read full description of the books Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: The Complete Newspaper Dailies, Vol. 2: 1930-1932:

Buck Rogers is a real mixed bag. On the one hand, it very often--far more often than one would expect of a 1930s comic strip--shows an interest in actual science and its implications, and it occasionally creates nice little science puzzle moments in the plot. On the other, it is populated by the most puerile, idiotic characters one can imagine. One would think the only plot motivator possible is some variation on love jealousy. The women especially are depicted as twits. I lost count of the number of times Wilma did something dumb (almost any time she does anything) and/or fainted. Admittedly, Buck is not a whole lot better, but at elast the plots don't consistently depend on him being naive and/or incompetent. One sequence depends on us believing that Buck and Wilma would get into a love squabble right in the middle of a fight with two villains and get so caught up in their squabble that they let the villains get away. Even the art is hit and miss. There are some nicely rendered panels, and occasional attempts to use the comics space creatively (e.g. by having images and word balloons sometimes sideways if characters are floating), but equally frequently, the art is awkward and/or the text is badly incorporated. These are early strips, true, but not that early. Hard to ascribe some of these problems to anything other than sloppiness or a lack of real concern about polish. For enthusiasts only.
