October 11, 2007, Runnemede, NJ – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information announcing the all-new Sci-Fi comic book series Battlestar Galactica: Origins. Following in the tradition of Dynamite’s powerful BSG: Zarek series by Brandon Jerwa, the new Origins comic book series will reveal the early years of the hit Sci-Fi show’s most popular, and sometimes mysterious, characters.
Featuring a story by Kevin Fahey, a writer of the award winning Sci-Fi Channel series Battlestar Galactica, and art by Jonathan Lau, whose detailed pencil work has graced the covers of various Dynamite titles (Battlestar Galactica and Xena), Battlestar Galactica: Origins is scheduled for a November release with a cover by Fabiano Laguna and a Battlestar photo cover. Battlestar fans should also ask their retailer about the limited foil edition of Fabiano Laguna’s stellar cover.
Issue #1 of the new Battlestar Galactica: Origins comic book series explores the origins of Gaius Baltar and his life and loves that lead up to the second Cylon War. Fans of both Sci-Fi’s re-imagined Battlestar Galactica television series and Dynamite’s New Battlestar Galactica comic books series know Gaius Baltar as the brilliant computer scientist who unintentionally brought about the near-annihilation of the human species. Of course, where Gaius Baltar is found, that sexy cylon known as Six is sure to be close at hand, haunting and influencing his fear of discovery.
