It’s going to be a long wait for Battlestar Galactica fans before the final season of the prolific sci-fi series starts to air in 2008. Meanwhile Dynamite Entertainment will soon be releasing something that would hopefully ease the wait. Coming out this month is Battlestar Galactica: Pegasus, a one-shot issue featuring the adventures of the crew and commander of the Battlestar Pegasus.
After releasing Battlestar Galactica: Season Zero, Seattle-based comic writer Brandon Jerwa decided to come up with a 40-page one-shot featuring the unseen story of the Battlestar Pegasus and Commander Cain. In an interview with comicbookresources.com, he shares his gratitude towards Battlestar Galactica supporters and mentions his much awaited comics.
“Let me start by saying a big thank you to all the Battlestar Galactica fans that support the Dynamite comics. I know I speak for everyone involved when I tell you that we all work really, really hard on these books – double-and-triple checking the facts, sharing ideas, making changes based on feedback from our liaisons at the television show and just making sure we’re churning out the very best that have to offer…my Battlestar Pegasus one-shot is dropping in October, and that one’s definitely a companion piece to this series. The show might not be coming back full-time until 2008, but we’re doing our best to fill the empty void in your life until then,” Jerwa, whose credits include G.I. Joe and Highlander, told comicbookresources.com.
Battlestar Galactica: Pegasus, which will be available with a cover from Greg Tocchini and with a Battlestar photo cover, chronicles the events leading up to the Cylon attack on the human colonies as seen in the “re-imagining” of Battlestar Galactica on the Sci-Fi Channel.
