I concur. The annual was VERY well done, and provided an incredible backstory for the character of Baltar. Also, the surprise (twist?) ending was superb, and I won't spoil it here. I definitely recommend anyone and everyone going out to their local comic store and getting a copy of the Annual. Keep writing Dynamite, too! I'd like to discuss the ending and your thoughts about this issue once others have had time to buy and read.....

Issue #9 wrapped up the ongoing storyline of the 13th quite nicely, with a fantastic sci-fi type ending that reminded me of classic Star Trek. Very nicely done and well worth the $3.99.

He was finally rescued from Lucifer's BaseShip.

The annual was a lot of fun--ditto issue 9. I wish the series had started out this strong.

Here's a link from Lone Star comics that shows the upcoming covers for issues 10, 11, 12 (albeit with a disclaimer that the images may change):

Thanks for sharing that link. I was starting to doubt that there was another issue coming post-annual.

What, you missed an entire comic dedicated to Count Baltar?

Shame on you! ;)

I thought it was another of those "Oh, yeah, we'll do this if we get around to it - like never" things.

Let me guess, the surprise ending is Baltar makes it to end without dying. Well, I would be surprised... :)

Pick up the issue and find out. Very good reading, and the artwork is terrific, too.

Finally got those missing back issues in. Yay, I can finally start reading. And I'm laid up in bed with the flu today, so I've got my stack of issues 1-10, plus the Annual, and I can read em all in one go, if I want as nobody is expecting me to get out of bed and do stuff. lol :]

Just picked up #10 today (last issue left at local comic store), and will post review later. My local comic shop still had a few issues left of #1, #3, and #7, but sold out of everything else.

I finally have all the issues (non goofy cover variants). My local comic shop had them on sale for half off on Free Comic Book Day so I got all ten issues and two of the Starbuck issues for under $20! Now to catch up on some reading.

I'm glad that the response is positive this time around. The last round Dynamite did was alright but a little lacking.

I thought it was supposed to be a 21st century version of Galactica: 1980. Not an 1880 steampunk crap version or a sequel to Dynamite's ID4 rip off of Galactica: 1980 comic mini series. Dynamite did a steampunk version of the Six Million Dollar Man. It was either Six Hundred or six Thousand Dollar Man. I quess they forgot about the TV movie 'The Wild Wild West Revisited' Dr. Miguilito Loveless Jr. creates Six Hundred Dollar people.

Yet another in a long, long trail of authors who when it comes to official Galactica projects, just do not get it.
