Nope, though there's a definite similarity in graphical style.  I was most surprised to find they that were released in the same year, I thought this one would be much older!

This one featured a character who was famous outside the world of video games...

Nope - think comics rather than TV. :wink:

Hmmmm... a comic character in a purple and green jumpsuit with what looks like a big gun, a helmet, and a jetpack fighting aliens?!

Ermmmm...

(I suspect the "tries" image of the closeup of the character is a big clue but I honestly cannot get a visual read on what their face is supposed to look like inside the helmet. I dunno if the black area is hair, an eyepatch, or some kind of visor/heads-up-display, or what. I suppose it makes sense it you know who it's supposed to be but not in reverse...)

I think Mandle may be reading too much into the "Tries" thing (unless I'm not reading enough into it?!?)

This should give it away - at least the character (it's not the first in the series):

Buck Rogers started off as a book (well two stories that were eventually compiled into a book), then got popularised as a comic. Long before becoming a TV show.

Um... Captain Comic?

You live and learn!  It's all about Gil Gerard and Erin Grey to me, I've never seen Buck Rogers in book or comic form.

Incidentally, the name of the eponymous character in this game rhymes with your user name!  (Depending on exactly how you pronounce the second part...)

I am not sure when the comics or book came about but there was a movie called Buck Rogers in 1939.

Frodo's got it - or at least most of it.  This was Dan Dare III on the ST.

The first story was published in 1928. The first comic strip was released the next year.
