On "air patrol", Deering was attacked by an enemy gang, the Bad Bloods, presumed to have allied themselves with the Hans.
The character was given the nickname "Buck," and some have suggested that Dille coined that name based on the 1920s cowboy actor Buck Jones. (Coincidentally, this was also the date that the Tarzan comic strip began, distributed by United Feature Syndicate.) Buck Rogers was initially syndicated to 47 newspapers.
On January 7, 1929, the Buck Rogers in the 25th Century A. Dick Calkins, an advertising artist, drew the earliest daily strips, and Russell Keaton drew the earliest Sunday strips.
The adventures of Buck Rogers in comic strips, movies, radio and television became an important part of American popular culture.
It was on January 22, 1930, that Buck Rogers first ventured into space aboard a rocket ship in his fifth newspaper comic story Tiger Men From Mars.
