Quotes from

Buck Rogers: I don't understand, sir. Who is this man called Killer Kane?
Professor Huer: He is the result of the stupidity of the men of your century. You failed to stamp out lawlessness and in the end the criminal became stronger than the law.

George 'Buddy' Wade: I wouldn't call Dr. Huer exactly handsome, but I sure would give a lot to see his face right now.
Buck Rogers: [laughs] I bet you would Buddy.

Facts about

Buster Crabbe was not actually the first actor to play Buck Rogers physically. That honour goes to an unknown man who played Buck in a Virginia department store, instead of that store's regular Santa Claus.
Although Dick Calkins signed the artwork on the art for the Buck Rogers strip, it was always done by his assistants, starting with Russell Keaton and continuing with Richard Henry Yager through 1933.
In the original Buck Rogers novelettes, Buck's enemy was the Han; in the comic strip, his enemy was the Mongols and later the Tiger Men of Mars. Neither of these impressive foes appeared in the serial - Kane was made the main villain. Buck's full name - not mentioned in the comic strip - is Anthony Rogers. Nowlan may have ordered it altered for length reasons.
