Ok, so I need to switch to decaf and calm down just a bit before Dynamite Entertainment’s Battlestar Galactica: Cylon Apocalypse #3 hits in April.
As a fan of the original television series (yeah, I said it), seeing the original chrome domes and saucer shaped Raiders back in action is a treat. In Cylon Apocalypse, Adama has ordered the virus to be released on the Cylon Empire. As fate has it though, Starbuck ends up getting stuck on the Cylon home world.
Want a peek at the action, and the full size covers? Take the jump!
According to Dynamite: “Heads up, Classic fans…. Finally, the crew of the Galactica has found a path to Earth– and the only thing standing in the way is a planet full of warring Cylons! Here’s a taste of the excitement!”
“We are going to take the Galactica into lightspeed,” Adama commanded.
“Lightspeed?” Bojay spoke the collective thoughts of the stunned Viper pilots. “Commander- with all due respect, this ship hasn’t engaged the hyper-velocity drives in over twenty yahrens!”
“She’ll make it,” a confident voice assured from aside the ranks. Starbuck moved in and with his usual coolness added. “She survived the Hasari routs. The second siege of the Cosmora Archipelago. And the ambush at Cimitar… She can survive us hitting the throttle for a few seconds!”
“If you think that sounds exciting, then keep in mind we haven’t even gotten to the dangers emanating from the planet of Cylons, the launching of nano-cybrid weapons and the wormhole that may finally take the Galactica to earth,” continued Dynamite. “Every Cylon Apocalypse script we received from writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach surpassed the previous one. His Battlestar knowledge appears to know no bounds, and he’s utilizing every bit of it to craft one of the greatest space adventures in comic book history. In fact, when he starts throwing in terminology such as ‘gallmonging snitrat’, we start to believe that he may have actually been a Galactica crew member.
(I’m not a fan of the text descriptions either, but ya gotta work with what you’re given.)
Battlestar Galactica Cylon Apocalypse #3 will be available in April for $3.50.
