Penciller: JONATHAN LAU
Covers: DENNIS CALERO
Colorist: ROMULO FAJARDO JR.

Genre: SCIENCE FICTION
Rating: TEEN+
Meet the Ghost Squadron, a black-ops Viper team that calls the Pegasus home. Separated from the Pegasus at the time of the Holocaust, they join forces with a freelance salvage team and their ship, Orion’s Pride. After the apocalypse, unlike their fellow survivors on the Galactica, the Ghost Squadron isn’t looking for Earth – they’re just trying to stay alive.

GHOSTS collects Dynamite Entertainment’s first Galactica story featuring an all-new and original cast of characters from the acclaimed Sci Fi series!

Written by Brandon (NEW BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: ZAREK) Jerwa, with art by Jonathan (NEW BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: ORIGINS) Lau and covers by Dennis (Legion of Super-heroes) Calero, this trade paperback collection also features a complete cover gallery by Calero.

“With the usual Cylon plotting and threats, Jerwa makes sure we remember this is a Galactica story, but a unique one with fresh faces. Chances are, you’ll want to see them again. In the meantime, catch them while you can.”
