Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
The year is 2435. The United States does not exist as we know it today. Oppressed for the last few centuries by foreign rule, rebel groups -- Orgs -- have just banded together to fight the Mongols. With their hidden headquarters at Niagara Falls, the Orgs have steadily regained the lost technology necessary to reclaim the United States as a land of freedom and democracy. Events leading up the this set of strips have laid the groundwork for the United States to finally climb out of the oppressive pit and regain its former glory.

The following series takes place shortly after the Mongol Emporer has been captured.
