Description

    Amazing Stories Vol. 3, #5 (Experimenter Publishing Co., 1928). Want to know the true origin of Buck Rogers? The first Buck Rogers, Armageddon 2419, written by Philip Nowlan, appeared in this pulp magazine which hit the stands in August, 1928. This particular copy is in fantastic shape, with a complete spine, square corners and beautiful, supple pages. Frank Paul rendered the classic cover. Soon after this story came out, Nowlan sold his idea to radio, which turned Buck Rogers into a household name. Rare in high grade, this book is almost never offered for sale in this condition. There is no price Guide for pulps as of this writing. Condition: VF+ Light tan to off-white pages.
