For more than thirty years, actor Gil Gerard has been drifting through Hollywood – seemingly lost forever. However, when Lotus Comics caught up with the star of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century at the Dallas Sci-Fi expo, we learned the sinister truth.
He’s a contract killer.
Jeffrey Kaufman’s Big City Comics has teamed up with Gil to create a limited edition graphic novel called “The Con”. In it, Mr. Gerard plays his genuine affable self, greeting fans and signing autographs at the MegaCon. Suddenly, he receives word that his target is at the same convention, and he is instructed to carry out the termination.
Can the man we call Buck Rogers, known for his handsome and disarming persona, really flip the switch and turn into a steel-minded killing machine? Can we picture the gruff but lovable Detective Jake Rizzo (Sidekicks) choosing a life of such chilling duplicity?
Of course we can. The juxtaposition of the man Gil Gerard really is versus the past characters he portrayed versus the fantastical notion that his natural charm hides a darker side is precisely what makes “The Con” so alluring. With only a limited run of 1000 numbered editions, this item is going to go fast, so please be sure to order yours here. But pray that the shadowy powers ordering the assassination are undermined.
Can you imagine what Robert Englund might do if given the same opportunity?
