Okay… I'll admit something. I never got into the remake of Battlestar Galactica. I remember watching the first episode and seeing a female Starbuck and watching Adama cry. And then the Cylons looked human. That was enough for me to walk away. It's not that those were bad things, but that wasn't what I wanted from BSG. When I was six years old I wrote to Rex Cutter, the guy in the classic Cylon suit, and got an autographed picture of a Cylon back.
Now I know that the SyFy channel's version of BSG was hugely popular… I prefer the classic version of Lorne Greene, Dirk Benedict and Richard Hatch. So I'm happy that Dynamite is doing more of the classic series. The latest is by writer Cullen Bunn and artist Alex Sanchez. I really like Cullen's writing and I got to work with Alex on the 30 Days of Night series a while back… so I'm definitely in on this series.
The Galactica's search for sanctuary takes them beyond the limits of known reality and into a cosmic mystery where the hunters become the hunted, ruin and despair dot the skies, and Adama goes where friend and family can't follow. Cullen Bunn (Sinestro Corps, The Sixth Gun, Deadpool & The Mercs for Money) and Alex Sanchez (Mad Max: Ride, 30 Days Of Night: Spreading the Disease, Katana) invite you on a journey unlike any in the annals of Battlestar Galactica!
The final order cut off for this is Monday. So if you're like me and want the classic BSG, let your retailer know.
