Because, Awesome: How Big Is Your Spaceship?

Upper left corner of the full image "Size Comparison -- Science Fiction spaceships" by Dirk Loechel to show the title and a few of the ships.

Taxonomy posters have a long history in entertainment and education. They can range from a staid and serious presentation of the comparative anatomy of mammals for the college lecture hall to the free and breezy relationships between kinds of beer that are perfectly at home in the college dorm room.

We recently spotted a new poster-sized graphic of “Size Comparison – Science Fiction spaceships” from artist Dirk Loechel that pretty much took our breath away. It covers ships from approximately 35 different popular science fiction universes from books, games, film, and television, including Star Wars, Star Trek, Farscape, and much more. They are all rendered in the same scale according to the best sources that Mr. Loechel could find.

Battlestar Galactica #3Battlestar Galactica #3
Written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning
Illustrated by Cezar Razek
Colored by Vinicius Townsend
Lettered by Simon Bowland
Covers by Alex Ross and Chris Eliopoulos
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 14, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

There’s a good chance I might get some flak for this, but here goes nothing: I’ve never seen the original Battlestar Galactica television series. Ronald D. Moore’s 2004 series happens to be among my favorite shows of all time, but I’ve never really been interested its predecessor. With that being said, I decided to give the new Battlestar Galactica comic book series from Dynamite a chance as an introduction of sorts to the show that started it all. Written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning and illustrated by Cezar Razek, Battlestar Galactica is now on its third issue and there are some frakkin’ crazy inter-dimensional happenings going on.

Starbuck and Apollo are still stuck in an alternate timeline where those who should be dead are alive and vice versa. Captured by none other than Boomer, Apollo struggles to convince the downtrodden resistance of this dimension “” including his dead wife, Serina and his father, Adama “” that he is, in fact, Apollo from another history.

Cover Price: $3.99

Battlestar Galactica #1 proves the theory that if you want the best, you get the best. In this case, if you have a tremendously popular science fiction franchise with a huge cast, you call DnA to write your book.

Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning have proved time and time again that they know to write an entertaining science fiction story. Add to that the fact that they’re great at working on team books or books with pretty big casts and you have the perfect match here on this book. Abnett and Lanning take everything that was right, fun, awesome, and slick about the original Battlestar Galactica series and kick it up a notch in this debut issue. Sure, we get some introductions that we don’t really need, but it’s a first issue, so, statistics would dictate that it’s someone’s first exposure to these characters and in that sense, it’s great first issue. It’s also a great first issue for fans of the property, we get a great start to what looks to be a fantastic story starring the characters that we all know and love.
