Official Press Release
Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment today announced that the first issue of their new Classic Battlestar Galactica series will be at a special "thank you" price of $2.99 in appreciation for the support fans and retailers have shown for Battlestar Galactica.
Dynamite stated, "We are always looking for ways to show our appreciation for all the support fans and the retailers have provided since day one. There's no denying that this is a very exciting and fun industry, but there's also a sense of responsibility that we all try to follow- a delicate balance between producing a quality product and keeping the books affordable. With all our properties, and especially with Battlestar, fans have recognized the level of quality and loyalty that we are trying to achieve. Our New Battlestar Galactica series has captured an audience beyond comic book readers, and we know how excited these fans are that we are bringing back the original crew in our Classic series. For that reason, we've decided to start the series off with a de-creased price as a way to say thanks! Hopefully we'll have huge sell through, and the support will be there so that we can re-evaluate the prices for #2 and up. Writer Rick Remender and Artist Carlos Rafael have done an amazing job creating this Classic Battlestar adventure- from that menacing red eye of the Cylons to Starbuck's wisecracks, the series doesn't skip a beat when compared to the original series. The book is due to hit the stores this coming Wednesday, so we want to thank our dedicated Battlestar fans and hope they enjoy the Classic series! Also, for anyone looking to delve into the Battlestar universe, this is great opportunity to hop on board!"
