BATTLESTAR GALACTICA CLAS­SIC #1

IT’S been 40 years since the plight of the crew of the Battlestar Galactica was first aired on TV.

While the se­ries en­joyed a su­perb re­vival in 2004, it’s the orig­i­nal clas­sic which forms the ba­sis of this new comic se­ries.

With the ships joined by a sec­ond fleet of fugi­tives, Com­man­der Adama sees the op­por­tu­nity to strike back at the Cy­lons.

But strik­ing back means giv­ing up the chase for Earth, and treach­er­ous Count Bal­tar is wait­ing in the wings.

Writ­ten by John Jack­son Miller, with art­work by Daniel HDR, Battlestar Galactica Clas­sic #1 is out now priced £3.35.
