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!

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.

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?

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 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.

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?

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.

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.

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….

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!
