As far as I know it ignores the 'Galactica 1980' mini continuity and rightly so.

Yes, the current ongoing Classic series pretty much ignores Galactica 1980. Issue #7 just came out, and it is great, introducing a new storyline, "Dreams of the 13th" in which several members of the crew are having the exact same dream of earth as the fleet plunges ahead into a space storm. Pick it up, write Dynamite and tell them you are enjoying the series. Let's keep this one going.

On a side note, my local comic store has not carried the Starbuck limited series. What's up with that? :blink:

The comic store I sink my $$$ into orders the specific comics I want; in fact, I send them a monthly "pull list" comprised of around 25 monthly titles that I pick up. It's a shame if your store doesn't order even a couple copies for display, but are they at least ordering one for you? It's not a bad read, IMO--not great but it's worth following, especially to support anything based on the original series.

In april, dynamite is bringing out a five issue series based on the re-imagined BSG character Six. As usual, the artwork in Six will be better than the BSG Classic. Adama in the current BSG Classic looks more like Colonel Harlan Sanders (He founded Kentucky Fried Chicken) or General Robert E Lee. The Adama in the Starbuck comics is better.

Thanks for the suggestion, but the days of having multiple subscriptions to comics for me are way long gone; I remember back in the 1980s I would subscribe to 8-10 titles a month, but comics were 75 cents to $1.00 each. Now with $3.99 and up comics :yikes: I pick up only the classic BG titles, and only because it is Battlestar. New comics (past 20 years) offer nothing for me, as far as artwork, writing, and characterization.

IMO the recent issue (#8) was a big improvement over previous issues. Cesar Razek did a fine job with the art and Abnett's dialogue was overall well handled--I could practically hear Terry Carter's voice whenever Tigh spoke. I'm curious whether anyone else shared my reaction. I don't think I've ever really even enjoyed a comic take on BG, but #8 kept my attention start to finish.

I haven't read any of the new ones yet. :( I only have issues 2, and 7 and 8. Waiting for my missing issues to show up at the comic store (I have them on back order).

And here's something that came out of left field: there's a Battlestar Galactica Annual on its way!

http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/02/...gin-of-baltar/

It follows Baltar to the planet he was going to be left on per his agreement with Adama in "Hand of God." Dynamite's really showing some commitment to classic BG--an ongoing, a Starbuck mini, a "Li'l" one-shot, and now an annual.

Re: New BG Classic ongoing comic
 
The annual is interesting!

Does anyone know when the next TBP edition of the comics is coming out?

Also, will the annual be collected together with other one-offs to form a TPB - based on Dynamite's usual way of working if anyone knows if they typically do this?

Re: New BG Classic ongoing comic
 
Very cool. I don't see a release date yet, and mycomicshop.com states that the cover artwork is tentative, but I do agree that Dynamite so far has handled the classic series very well for 2013.

Re: New BG Classic ongoing comic
 
The recent storyline has really held my interest--something I can't say for the vast majority of BG comics we've seen over the years. Wonder how long this ride is going to last.

There were no solicits for the Classic BG this month, I'm thinking the annual is the last issue.

Yep, there's no sign of it for June either, looks like the ride is over.

Picking up the annual and #9 today at the local shop; will ask the shop if the series continues. According to this link:
http://mycomicshop.com/search?TID=24231039'
The current Classic series runs at least through 12 issues. Only the first 9 have come out. Lone Star Comics (mycomicshop) is one of the best retail and online comic shops both in Texas and the nation….

The letterer was on Twitter today saying he was lettering issue #11.

Well I went through the annual, and I must say that I have to applaud this story. The continuity was straight with established Galactica canon and as a Baltar origin tale goes, it was well done. Nice way to try and harmonize both versions of what happened to Baltar in Saga!
