87 BUCK ROGERS DAILY STRIPS 1932 Clippings Sequence!

87 BUCK ROGERS DAILY STRIPS 1932 Clippings Sequence! - eBay (item 310047012129 end time May-08-08 19:13:44 PDT)

This is almost a hundred strips in sequence clipped from a daily newspaper in which they appeared in 1932. Buck Rogers was created by Philip Francis Nowlan and drawn by Dick Calkins. This sequence is a good story that goes from number 1051 to 1137.

It's difficult to find such a long run as this any more. They're 76 years old. If you have the Buck Rogers Big Little Books, this sequence fits between Moons of Saturn and 25th Century A.D. A listing we found online calls this story Beneath the Greenland Ice Sheet.

This sequence of vintage Buck Rogers clippings is in good condition, a bit brittle but not crumbling. A couple have been nicely repaired using similar newsprint stock. One such repair is shown in the second photo. Two or three others are taped from behind because of accidental scissors cuts.
