Battlestar Galactica #3 Dynamite Entertainment

Whether you’re a Lorne Greene fan or an Edward James Olmos supporter, if you’re the slightest bit interested in TV sci-fi you will be aware of Battlestar Galactica. A graduate of the Glen A. Larson school of 1970’s space adventures Battlestar Galactica has gone on to spawn not only TV shows, but novels, games and, of course, comic books.

Now, in Battlestar Galactica #3, it’s up to Cullen Bunn, who has written just about everything from X-Men to Deadpool, Aquaman, Green Lantern and Harrow County to take Galactica where no man has gone before. Or is that another starship altogether?

Anyway, in Battlestar Galactica #3 Starbuck and Apollo are exploring a mysterious planet surrounded by dead starships, which is not an encouraging welcome, whilst Battlestar Galactica’s ace bad guys the Cylons are asking for sanctuary because they’re being persecuted by an even nastier race of Cylons! Who could have seen that one coming?

Battlestar Galactica #3 is high-quality space opera, but Alex Sanchez’ art has an unfinished look to it. Instead of razor sharp graphic sequences we get close encounters of the blurred kind which detracts from the overall enjoyment and could easily be remedied by the services of a good inker.

Nonetheless, Battlestar Galactica #3 provides enough thrills and spills to keep Battlestar Galactica fans everywhere hoping that another TV outing must surely be just around the corner.

So say we all.
