At last! The epic story you've been dying to see is here, a galaxy and timeline-spanning saga bringing the two very different (and yet so very much alike) crews of the Battlestar Galacticas series together. But don’t expect this historic meeting of heroes to be friendly: they have no idea why they have been brought together, or what the result of this unprecedented meeting is. And it starts here as the legendary Commander Cain and the crew of the Pegasus are revealed to be alive, and have encountered an individual they never thought they would meet: the last Cylon. All this has happened before, but there will NEVER be anything like it again more

    Overall. A really promising start to what looks like being one hell of a great story. BSG vs BSG will hit comics stores on Wednesday of next week. Read Full Review

    Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica #1 is uniquely good from cover to cover! There's so much that could go wrong with what it's trying to do but you know what? I'm ready to take a chance and see where this all goes as long as this team sticks around to see it through. Read Full Review

    In any event, the comic book offers the same magic as the original series as well as its recent television run. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Bryan Brown Jan 11, 2018

    The first issue of BSG vs BSG is surprisingly entertaining. The unpredictable beginning was refreshing. Had this been crossover episodes of the two television series, the epic themes of the two could be heard at the appropriate times in the reader's mind. The timing of when one ends and the other begins is perfect. Peter David has done well mixing the two universes without losing their individual nuances. No matter which series you're a fan of, there is something for everyone. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Mike Pursell Jan 10, 2018

    It's an interesting first issue that sets up what could be a wild ride for both universes, but it'll definitely be an exclusive adventure for Battlestar Galactica fans (old and new) only. Read Full Review

    "Battlestar Galactica vs. Battlestar Galactica" #1 packs a strong script but doesn't live up to the potential baked into the premise. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Jan 11, 2018

    This is a fun way to begin a fandom dream mashup, and it remains to be seen how David balances that with the serious tone of the 2004 incarnation. But I wrote BSG fanfic yahrens ago, so I'll be picking up the next installment to find out. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jan 11, 2018

    The book isn't without a sense of fun, the “looks like i picked the wrong time…” joke will only appeal to fans of a certain age (thank you Mr David, I got it!) and the idea of two Battlestars going head to head, with the variants on the theme providing all sorts of conceptual contrasts. You never know, the latter-day Tigh may get his wish for Starbuck to go frak herself, kind of. It's a shame, that very much like the Armistice between humans and Cylons, the art promises much, but fails to deliver the desired result. Read Full Review
