Volume 35 of The Adventures of Buck Danny, entitled "The squadron of death", takes place in Mantegua (a fictional country in South America) close to the Caribbean Sea. This country faces a civil war and an atomic bomb has been stolen by the rebels. For this adventure, Buck and his friends had to be hired as pilots within the guerrilla in order to scuttle every attempt from the guerrilla to use the bomb in a bad way.
Buck Danny is a pilot in the US Air Force, who during the volumes is going to take part in the most important conflicts in the world, piloting the most historical and mythical planes of the history of the military aviation.
What I find fascinating in comic books is the fact that the hero never gets old. Indeed, the adventures of Buck Danny start in 1942, during the Second World War and in the last volume, in 2016, he is still a pilot in the US Army, with the most modern planes.
This volume is well-written and doesn’t have any timeouts.
I chose Buck Danny because aviation is one of my hobbies. I started to develop this passion when I was 10, by traveling and taking planes. I find this invention just incredible because it allows us to reach every destination on the globe in just a couple of hours. I own all the volumes in France, and even more I bought the last one before coming here in Wellington. This comic book is really part of my childhood.
For all the aviation enthusiasts, history and comic books ones, I highly recommend you to read Buck Danny.
