Saturday Leftover Day.
In July 1958, Murphy Anderson took over the daily and Sunday Buck Rogers strip from Rick Yager, who had left after a contract dispute with the syndicate. On researching it, I saw that Hermes has published both a collection of all of Anderson's daily strips (including his late forties/early fifties run) and a collection of his Sundays. Having been burned a couple of times, I have decided not to buy anymore books from Hermes. I do not like their design, their production quality or their choice of material. Still, people learn and maybe these books represent a growth in their capabillities. Is there anyone out there who can tell me if these books are okay, because I really would like to see these strips (having clipped bits and pieces of them everywhere). Also, I am curious to see if they have included the first two weeks of unsigned strips after Yager left. They do not seem to be by Yager and nor by Anderson. Apparently someone else filled out Yager's storyline. Anderson starts signing on July 7. There is a weird copying of 7-11 going on at 7-19, though.
