Mike Wieringo’s BUCK ROGERS

August 14th, 2007 | comics talk, people I know

On my message board, every week or two for a few months, I’d do a thread called REMAKE/REMODEL, where I’d call out an old comics characters for the board’s artists to revamp as an exercise. Mike joined in a few times. This was, I think, the one that blew everyone away: Mike’s take on BUCK ROGERS.
