"Battlestar Galactica" comic

Posted by John Kirk (4th Jun 2006, 22:03) -

There's a new "Battlestar Galactica" comic coming out soon, and there's a #0 preview issue in comic shops now. The linked website has some of the pages from the preview issue.

I had a look at the website a few days ago, and wasn't particularly impressed. On the other hand, the #0 issue only costs 25p, so I figured it was worth picking up in the shop, and I'm now sufficiently interested to take a look at the ongoing series. It's set about halfway through season 2, so my main concern is that it will be inconsequential, i.e. if anything significant had happened then we'd already know about it. On the other hand, there have been some good Trek novels that have worked under the same kind of restrictions, and I'm looking forward to Peter David's Galactica novel later this year, so I realise that's a slightly irrational prejudice to have.

There are a couple of slightly odd things about the preview issue: a) The half page image on the website contains a red bar with some text, but it's just a blank red bar in print, i.e. the text is missing. b) Despite the fact that "number 6" features prominently on both versions of the cover, she doesn't appear in the story at all (but I assume that she'll show up in the ongoing series).

Oh, and based on the advert pages in the issue, the publisher (Dynamite) is trying to carve out a niche for themselves, because they also have "Highlander" and "Xena" comics coming out soon, with the same 25p preview issue scheme.

(I tried to edit the article to add the previous paragraph, but it didn't show up - bug?)
