Battlestar Galactica to Live On in Comics

Posted on August 22, 2007

Battlestar Galactica will live on in comics after the upcoming final television season.

Dynamite Entertainment's Battlestar Galactica Season Zero will be released this month. The six issue comic will rewind to two years before the Cylon attack on Caprica and fill in some of the details leading up to the fateful war.

Aside from the comics, fans will soon have the Battlestar Galactica movie Razor to tide them over until the series returns in January. Razor will tell two stories: first, the story of Lee (Apollo) Adama's first mission as commander of the Pegasus, and second, the story of Admiral Cain and her conduct and misconduct in the wake of the Cylon attack.

Around the time of Battlestar Galactica: Razor's release, Sci-Fi will be preparing the webisodes for release. As with last seasons run, the webisodes will prep audiences for the events that await them in the fourth and final season of the Peabody award winning series.

Battlestar Galactica returns for its fourth and final season in January, 2008. And the writers had better be up to the task -- what with Starbuck showing back up in the season finale and the odd assortment of characters that were revealed to be Cylons. It'll either be totally awesome or total jump the shark time. We hope it will be amazing.

It's odd how much more likable the Cylons have become over time. Let's face it, the Cylons have the cooler ship, cooler technology and they are really quite interesting -- in a homicidal, sociopathic kind of way. And another thing: if the writers don't stop those endless "we're poor and out of food and medicine and/or the miners are revolting" storylines, we're going to need tranquilizers.
