Thanks for posting this story, Ger. It was one of the strongest scripts so far, and artistically Tuska was in top form. His unique vehicle designs add an extra delight. Great stuff!

I was surprised to see Shari (realistically) pictured with dark skin. This was really unusual back then. I'm reminded of the Dell "Brain Boy" comic (two years later) in which the hero's dark-skinned South American girlfriend suddenly turned white after three issues.

On the other hand, for someone whose life was destroyed by his "ugliness," Jason looked rather ordinary.

Dear Ger: any chance of you posting more Buck Rogers stories by George Tuska? I read those when I was 8 years old, and this has been my best trip down memory lane. The next story ("Imperfect Duplicator") was the last one where the story line is the same for dailies and sundays; I'm hoping you post this one, too. After I grew up (I'm 62 now) I always thought that Tuska's best work has never fully appreciated. Thanks for having posted the first Buck Rogers he did!
