Dynamite Makes History with New BSG Series!
May 22, 2007, Runnemede, NJ – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information announcing the release of their all-new SCI-FI series NEW BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: SEASON ZERO. Dynamite’s new Battlestar series made its debut in May with issue #0 as part of the Dynamite Free Comic Book Day Comic Flip Book (with all new story and art, and read by over 100,000 fans), and continues with the July release of New Battlestar Galactica #1.
Dynamite’s new Battlestar series will serve as a prequel to the hit SCI FI television show with a story that takes place two years prior to the television mini-series (2003) that re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. The new comic series, “Season Zero”, is being written by Brandon (NBSG: Zarek) Jerwa with art by Stephen Segovia and new series artist Jackson Herbert, and will be available with covers by Stjepan Sejic, Adriano Batista, Stephen Segovia, and a photo cover. Also, Battlestar fans should ask their retailer about the special “Cylon Silver Foil” edition of New Battlestar Galactica: Seaon Zero #1, featuring a Battlestar photo cover!

Dynamite stated, “We are extremely excited to be revealing a piece of New BSG history in this series. So much so, that we were ecstatic when the fans voted for this as part of our Free Comic Book Day Flip Book! The success of NBSG: Season Zero issue #0 on Free Comic Book Day was extremely gratifying. The new series was given away by comic shops to over 100,000 fans!!! Once again we’re thrilled to have writer Brandon Jerwa back at the helm of the Galactica. He’s proven himself with the Battlestar: Zarek mini-series, and we’re confident and excited to show the fans what he can do with the entire crew under his design. Additionally, the new series looks amazing. The art from Stephen Segovia and Jackson Herbert captures the dramatic essence of the television series flawlessly. Bottom line, this is the series that Battlestar fans will not want to miss.”
Writer Brandon Jerwa is no stranger to the history of the Battlestar Galactica. As the writer of Dynamite’s four-issue mini-series event Battlestar Galactica: Zarek, Jerwa provided Battlestar fans with the radical background story of one of the most intriguing characters of the television series, the terrorist turned philosophical political leader, Tom Zarek. Jerwa’s scripting of the radical events and aspects of Tom Zarek’s revolutionary life received national attention with a feature in the December 11th, 2006 cover dated issue of TV Guide.
About the new Battlestar series, Jerwa exclaimed, “I am so frakking excited about this book! The art is looking great and I’m feeling good about the scripts thus far. It’s a real honor to be the guy who’s telling this particular story. We’ve got adventure, intrigue, Cylons, espionage, space battles, a little bit of romance and sexual tension…basically, I’m just doing my best to hit all the high notes of the Sci-Fi series and add in a few little flavors of my own along the way. Now suit up and report to the flight deck. We launch in July!”
