Buck Rogers book brings back memories

When I was a kid, my big nerd pleasure was getting big books of classic comic reprints out of the library: Superman, Batman, Flash Gordon- and this one, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. My mother-in-law picked this up for my son at an estate sale, unaware that I would go crazy for it myself.

The books spans the life of the daily- and color Sunday- comic strip from 1929-1946. It doesn’t include the 1950’s strips by Ray Bradbury, but he does write the foreword.

I look forward to reacquainting myself with Buck, Wilma and Killer Kane, and showing my son as well.

Any other Buck Rogers fans out there?

Why so quiet on the blog?

As if you cared, dept:

Well- aside from just being too sick to have energy for a Social Media Top 5, the energy I do have is devoted to moving this blog to hosted WordPress. More soon, but the great news– to me anyway– is that my new URL will be doughaslam.com, through the magic of timely expiration of domain ownership (sorry, talented woodworking artist Doug Haslam of Calgary)!

More to come soon, though postings might be sparse until the new domain is up.

By the way– I am aware of the “WordPress for Dummies” book, but is there a “WordPress for Completely Useless Morons” book? That would be a lift for me.
