Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new Battlestar Galactica comic launching in February, from a creative team including Michael Moreci and Breno Tamura. Called Battlestar Galactica: Twilight Command, the story will focus on space vampires that sparkle in the sunlight. Wait, maybe we should check the press release first. Our bad, it will actually be about this:
In the spirit of Rogue One—but all BSG—Battlestar Galactica: Twilight Command follows a group of men and women who’ve lost everything, who’ve compromised their souls and are in need of redemption—and they find it on New Caprica, in a one-way mission that will set the stage to free the human race from Cylon occupation.
Said Moreci, who is making the rounds of all the best space franchises these days…
I’m not kidding when I say that this is the exact story I’ve been wanting to tell since I watched Battlestar Galactica when it first aired. I always thought there were so many stories to tell on New Caprica, and being able to expand the Battlestar Galactica world with new characters–and old favorites–is so amazing. Not only that, but this is a bit of a different kind of Battlestar Galactica story. I liken it to what Rogue One did for Star Wars; it maintained the spirit while creating something new.
As a huge Battlestar Galactica fan, this is the exact kind of story I’d want to see, and I’m thrilled to be telling it.
And Dynamite CEO Nick Barrucci said:
This series is a stellar addition to the Battlestar Galactica canon. We’ve had the distinct pleasure of publishing Battlestar Galactica stories for over a decade and Twilight Command will no doubt be a fan favorite.”
Look for it in stores with variant covers from Brent Schoonover and Breno Tamura, as well as a special Atlas Edition signed by Moreci.
