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.

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.

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...

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.

No, they're cooking up the next arc which is another six issues, I think. There's going to be a death (my bet is on Apollo).

It's interesting though that there's no Next Issue blurb...

#12 was ok but one thing annoyed me:

(SPOILERS, I guess)

In spite of how he was portrayed in this issue, Boxey knows all about death. Wartime death. Did Dan Abnett miss the episode "Lost Planet of the Gods"? You know, the one where Boxey's mother is shot by a Cylon and dies a couple minutes after he says goodbye to her? I guess maybe the boy needs some serious time with Dr. Madusa to address his denial and/or memory issues...

Ta for the post.
The extra artwork and the character work up seems to have missed steam punk high victoriana in favor of something a bit too pinup girl.

"...the third is a one time colleague of Baltar, who created the Cylonics and the Babbage Network with Baltar and his protege, a young scientist named Athena…"

Excuse me? Is this a typo or what?

I also finally got my hands on the Annual but haven't had time to read it yet...
