    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Aug 20, 2014

    Let me just touch on the art work here for a minute. The colors were a bit different from other steampunk comics I've seen. Usually, there are more bronze like colors but here there are a lot of intense reds and blues. However, I still think it was done very well and I like the whole intergalactic vibe meets nineteenth century. And holy shit, the details in this issue are amazing. There are few scenes where you get to see how intricate the wardrobes are which really contributes to the time period and steampunk feel. Read Full Review

    While future issues would do well to drop the fanservice, I really dont have anything else negative to say about this comic. Its a fantastic and funny melding of two things I really like, and an easy recommendation to anyone who likes their comics strange and silly. Read Full Review

    If you know BSG, you will find this interesting.  If you like steampunk or space operas in general, give this a chance.   Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Ben Penfold-Marwick Aug 19, 2014

    This is definitely inaccessible to the majority of readers out there, but who the hell is going to pick up a comic book called Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 if they dont love both steampunk and Galactica? Anyone who has the urge to read this will find some fun, but for the rest of us, this is another cultural oddity that well only remember to reference in passing jokes to fellow comic book geeks.

    A sound idea in theory, but sadly it feels like more of a gimmick. Read Full Review

    Only one issue in but Steampunk Battlestar Galactica 1880 feels like a missed opportunity to create a new and fresh universe. Read Full Review
