Buck Rogers & The Phantom: Why Reprint Newspaper Comics in the 21st Century?

At New York City Comic Con yesterday, this GalleyCat editor spent some time paging through Hermes Press‘ reprints of classic newspaper comic strips.

While we explored strips like Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and The Phantom, publisher Daniel Herman explained why he resurrected these long-forgotten comics. He also expounded on how the vampire television show Dark Shadows influenced contemporary popular culture.

Watch the video embedded above for a brief tribute to the fading art of newspaper comics and a peek at some of the best costumes at New York City Comic Con. For more comic book action, check out our New York Comic Con tag.
