"There are those who believe that life here...began out there!"
This was the opening line of one of my favorite sci fi properties, the original Battlestar Galactica. After one season and a half hearted 'Galactica 1980', it was never to return. Sure we had some pretty good comics (Marvel, Realm Press and Homage) but I think we are ready for what could be the 'definitive' continuation of the series.
Coming from Dynamite Comics is 'Battlestar Galactica # 1'. This series will begin where the original series ended but have a few elements from 'Galactica 1980' including Doctor Zee. The series begins with Apollo and Starbuck lost in space and time following a surprise Cylon attack.
The book is drawn by Cezar Razek and features covers by Alex Ross and Chris Eliopolis but the thing that makes me the most excited about this is the writting team of Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. If you were a fan of the Marvel Cosmic Universe than you know these two know 'big' and space.
Battlestar Galactica is a full color 32 page comic with a cover price of $3.99 and will be released on May 15th.
