I walked away from Graphic Novels (nee Comic Books) over 50 years ago. I never expected to return. However, over the last three years as I have found myself becoming a professional book reviewer, I have again picked up some fun Graphic Novels. Battlestar Galactica is just the latest in my more recent venture into the venue. Again, I was not disappointed.
The current story has the fleet being chased by the Cylons into a new galaxy - with strange physical and psychological effects. Commander Adama and his leadership team must protect the fleet from both antagonists. In the process, Commander Adama nearly gives up his command position - a roll the entire fleet needs him to hold.
The graphics are well-done, though they do not fit well onto my 7” tablet’s screen. I used an 8.9” screen tablet and was satisfied with the results. Of course, these problems are of no concern when using a paper copy of the book. The plot held my attention as I made my way through the 226 pages of excitement and extended covers included at the end of the book.
Has it been 50 years since you last looked at a Graphic Novel or Comic Book, it might be fun to take a look at what is now available?
