It's more common than not that sales on comic series go down, unless there's a major change on the creative team and even then it would have to involve a popular writer and/or artist coming aboard. Plus, that #193 ranking doesn't necessarily mean anything. If #3 came out the month a lot of comics debuted (or a company like Marvel or DC had a company-wide event such as this month's 3D covers from DC), you're going to see a comic drop in ranking even if its sales were the same or higher than the previous month. What's important is the actual number of copies sold, and that unfortunately is also down from 10,505 to 9,200, a -12.42% drop according to Comic Book Resources. What sold less: DC's Arrow series (a digital to print title based on the TV series) and Green Team; Dynamite's Shadow/Green Hornet; IDW's GI Joe, Judge Dredd and Transformers; Bonzo's Simpsons Comics; and lots and lots of other titles. No way will DC hold on to a title with the numbers that Arrow and Green Team are pulling in, but whether Dynamite considers BG's #s adequate to continue the series...I have no idea.

I don't post much on the board anymore; lurk some, hopeful for "new" news.... Had to post on this topic, though. I've been a BG fan since the original series came out in 1978; I am also a comic book collector and fan. I am enjoying the new Dynamite limited series so far and have all three issues as released. The Alex Ross cover artwork is spectacular, as is all his work. I own the Marvel original BG series, the Dynamite Cylon Apocalypse, most of the Realm Press, etc. I think the "tongue-in-cheek" #3 cover homage to the original Star Wars early release poster (I owned this poster when it came out) was pretty cool, too.

I understand the purist problems with this current Dynamite series, but I am enjoying it, as it is mostly Classic Battlestar. Not a big fan of Dr. Zee, but when Galactica 1980 came out, I loved it, because it was Battlestar, although not as good as the original first series (some of you will take exception to that, but to a 13 year old at the time who was greatly disappointed abou the original series cancellation, Galactica 1980 was decent); was bummed when it was cancelled, too (yes, I own the 1980 DVD set and the Cylon head classic series set). I enjoy them because they are Battlestar.

With the lack of news on any new BG projects and especially the on-again/off-again Singer movie, this current comic is a new BG story that I can enjoy.

I would say go out and buy and and show that you are interested in this through sales. Most comic shops have all three issues still in stock (although probably very low on #1).

Diamond Comics Distributors lists issue #4 at #262 on the charts. (DC's highly successful villains month--offering both 3D and 2D covers of every title--pushed practically everything down the list.) Copies sold dropped from last month's 9200 to 7955. :(

I'd just like to point out that 'Memorial' the first trade paperback collecting BG 2013 issues 1-5 is out and available from comic shops and Amazon.

It's a nice package and despite a few minor niggles, a worthy celebration of TOS in its 35th year!

I don't think I've ever actually enjoyed a BG comic but it sure is great seeing an ongoing, a limited series and a one-shot all based on the original series released 35 years later.

I've now picked up through issue #6, and it looks as if this will be an ongoing series, so please go out and buy copies to support at your local comic dealer. Issue #6 was a great read (best so far of the series, in my opinion), as it focused on a watch on the bridge and Athena is the main protagonist. Pick it up!

I hadn't realised the trade paperback had been released until I saw this post - I've just bought a copy!

The original art for the front covers of these comics is for sale here:

I own Matt Busch's original painting of the front cover of "Eve of Destruction" and it looks great framed on my wall!

Re: New BG Classic ongoing comic
 
Okay, I'm confused here.

The current ongoing is set in the continuity of the originals series, correct? What about this sequel to Guggenheim's 1980 series? Is this it? Or is that another book that's coming out? Or is it out already? If it is, what's it called?

Or is the current ongoing going to lead into Guggenheim's 1980 stuff?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against alternate reality stories, or Galactica 1980 stuff being put out (I actually don't mind the show, and LOVED it as a kid), I'm just trying to figure out which comics by Dynamite are set in the same continuity together.

What about the original 5 issues that were put out (set in the timeframe of the original series, I believe), and BSG: Cylon Apocalypse? Are those two series in continuity with the new ongoing? What about the new Starbuck mini?

Any help would be great. :)
