    I was very reticent in reviewing this book because of my indifference to Starbuck and Galactica in general. Boy, was I wrong! This is a great entry point for the uninitiated or those with vague memories of the show. I fell in love with the story and the art and eagerly await the next installment. If you're a fan of the series this can only be the best love letter you'll ever get. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Spin Dash Nov 22, 2013

    I think more people need to go back and take a look at the original BSG and realize how awesome it truly was for the time. I also think this is a series I can give to dear (can't say old or she will slap me) Mom and she will love every minute of it. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Jaden LeBel Nov 20, 2013

    Battlestar Galactica: Starbuck #1, even without much of a fair comparison is by far the best introduction to a BSG comic I've read. It's genuinely a lot of fun and doesn't waste a lot of time getting lost in any mangled plots issues and I can't fracking wait for the next issue! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 27, 2013

    I'm a fan of the old Battlestar Galactica, and fondly remember many Saturday afternoon airings of the show on Channel 41, and with such a short run, it's easy to remember all the details of the 24 episodes. (But not Galactica: 1980. Because #@*&$ that show.) As such, I enjoyed this issue, even as it mostly dramatized events that had already been referenced or described in the television show, but that familiarity is simultaneously the biggest weakness. All in all, Battlestar Galactica - Starbuck #1 is a good book, with some very expressive art, but one that could be problematic, especially if you only know Katee Sackhoff, but still does well enough to earn 3.5 out of 5 stars overall.

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Nov 19, 2013

    More then really being bad Battlestar Galactica: Starbuck was just pointless. Nothing about it really spoke to a story that had to be told or an author that felt any kind of creative spark or inspiration from the material he was working with as evidence by the very dry and stock nature of the story. Very quickly I'll say the artwork is decent with a few nice scenes of spaceship battles and such but the artist has noticeable trouble with human faces as they can sometimes look weird and off putting with just enough slight distortion to be deeply unsettling. I really have to wonder if the series needed to start with this story as the preview for next month's issue totes that it will be jumping ten years into Starbuck's future so I wonder how much of an impact this story could really have on what's coming next. More then anything this adds to the air of being an issue 0 more then an issue 1 and it's an issue 0 I don't recommend. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - James McQueen Nov 19, 2013

    Thats the thing so far we havent seen him become the rascal he is. He is already gambling, playing cards and chain smokingand I wouldve much rather seen him in some early scrapes as a youngster or learning/partying from/with Lieutenant Wyler. It feels tied down to a story barely mentioned in the show and one that might not be worth 5 issues exploring. Read Full Review
