Official Press Release
March 14, 2007, Runnemede, NJ – DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT today released images and information announcing the fourth and final issue of the first Battlestar Galactica mini-series event by Javier Grillo-Marxuach — Battlestar Galactica: Cylon Apocalypse!
This four-issue BSG adventure is written by the successful writer/producer of “Lost” and “Medium” — Javier Grillo-Marxuach — with art by Battlestar veteran Carlos Rafael. Battlestar Galactica: Cylon Apocalypse #4 is scheduled for a May release and will be available with covers by Michael Golden, Pat Lee, Carlos Rafael, and Stephen (RED SONJA) Sadowski!
According to Dynamite: “Cylon Apocalypse has been one of the most exciting ‘original crew’ adventures to date, and Javier Grillo-Marxuach and artist Carlos Rafael are the team we have to thank for it. Now, as the series rockets toward its stellar finale, the fleet has been maneuvered into one of the most perilous, yet hopeful, situations ever. Earth is closer than ever, putting the Galactica in the grip of desperation as the only way to escape a massive attack and find the lost colony is to abandon crew members (and you won’t believe who) on a Cylon planet!”
Javier Grillo-Marxuach described his work on the series, “Cylon Apocalypse has been a wild viper ride — a basestar-shattering, Cylon-smashing adventure that allowed me to bring some of my wildest dreams of the Classic Universe to sequential life. As the series reaches its final chapter, I hope that fans of Classic Battlestar are revved up for the thrilling conclusion. Writing adventures for the original Adama, Starbuck, Apollo and company has been an awesome journey, I’ve made sure to put that sense of awe and excitement into every page of the series…and that’s no felgercarb!”
Dynamite Entertainment has become THE source for classic Battlestar Galactica fans to get their fix of the original crew and their adventures. Dynamite’s successful revival started with their Classic Battlestar Galactica series, and now it continues in the first Classic Battlestar Galactica mini-series event- Cylon Apocalypse!
