Battlestar Galactica: Pegasus (Dynamite – Jerwa / Lau) – Dynamite’s blurb – A special New Galactica one-shot featuring the unseen story of the Battlestar Pegasus and Commander Cain! Written by Brandon (SEASON ZERO, TOM ZAREK mini-series) Jerwa along with NEW GALACTICA artist Jonathan Lau, PEGASUS tells us the story of the great Battlestar in the events leading up to the Cylon Attack on the human colonies as seen in the “re-imagining” of Battlestar Galactica on the Sci-Fi Channel!! All under two incredible covers, one by GREG (Thor) TOCCHINI and the other a fan-favorite Galactica Photo cover Okay, let’s talk about what has come before… Dynamite is a phenomenal company that has put out some outrageously incredible books, which include Battlestar Galactica (new series, original, Zarek, Season Zero, etc.)… so no issues there. Brandon Jerwa has proven he can write a great BSG story and that is more than competent at the helm of a plot… no issues there. Jonathan Lau is superb in his BSG artwork… no issues there. So what issues are there with this Pegasus one-shot? WHO CARES? And I say that as a loyal BSG fans who has been desperately waiting for the last year or so to continue to the BSG crew. This well-told story of commander Helena Cain is just not relevant at all (not unlike the recent sci-fi movie event) to the upcoming season. And at a $4.99 cover price, it will take a real hardcore fan to buy this one.
