Covers: GREG TOCCHINI (50%), PHOTO (50%)

Genre: SCIENCE FICTION/MEDIA
A special New Galactica one-shot featuring the unseen story of the Battlestar Pegasus and Commander Cain!
Written by Brandon (SEASON ZERO, TOM ZAREK mini-series) Jerwa along with NEW Galactica artist Jonathan Lau, PEGASUS tells us the story of the great Battlestar in the events leading up to the Cylon Attack on the human colonies as seen in the "re-imagining" of Battlestar Galactica on the Sci-Fi Channel! All under two incredible covers, one by GREG (Thor) TOCCHINI and the other a fan-favorite Galactica Photo cover!
Previous praise for Jerwa's Galactica work includes this from the Comics Waiting Room of his Zarek mini-series: "ZAREK is an intense, personal piece of work, and the best work I've seen from Brandon to date. And the fact that he was allowed to give this much background and detail to a character still being seen on Sunday nights is remarkable. If you're a fan of Galactica, this is even more of a must-read than the main book."
