Final episodes of Battlestar Galactica are just around the corner, but to keep the action going, Dynamite Entertainment is taking readers back in time to the beginning of the Cylon War.  The mini-series will follow the events leading up to the attack on Caprica, and is written by Joshua Ortega and Eric Nylund, with art by Nigel Raynor.

“We’re taking this to a level we’ve never done before, and told the entire origin story!  We’ve taken these characters and events and told their unseen stories, all under the watchful eyes of the producers (and with their blessing!),” explained Dynamite Associate Editor Joe Rybandt in a prepared statement. “Now, we’ve taken that model one GIANT step forward – actually, more like BACKWARD – as we tell the story of the rise of the Cylons and their first deadly contact with their makers. Ortega and Nylund are the perfect pair to bring us the history and conflict of this incredible period from Battlestar Galactica.”

By Ortega, Nylund and Raynor! DIAMOND ORDERCODE: NOV083935

Before the time of mankind’s exodus from the twelve colonies (as told in the current award winning Battlestar Galactica series on SCI FI) and the returned menace of the Cylons, a war was fought between man and machine. A story that has never before been told, until now….

Fully authorized by Sci Fi and the show producers, the world of Galactica and the first “apocalypse” with the Cylons is explored here as only Dynamite can! 40 pages total featuring eight pages of production art and script excerpts!
