BSGClass2016-01-Cov-A-Sanchez

PRESS RELEASE: Eisner Award-nominated writer Cullen Bunn’s star continues to rise, as critics rally around new projects like Harrow County, Blood Feud, and The Sixth Gun, as well as bestselling titles including Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men and IDW’s Micronauts. Now, as he returns to Dynamite for the latest chapter in the fan-favorite franchise, Battlestar Galactica, Bunn welcomes the talented Alex Sanchez (Mad Max: Ride, 30 Days of Night: Spreading the Disease, Katana) to the artist’s first Dynamite project.

In the upcoming August release of Battlestar Galactica #1, humanity’s search for sanctuary takes our heroes beyond the limits of known reality and into a cosmic mystery where the hunters become the hunted, ruin and despair dot the skies, and Adama goes where friend and family can’t follow. Cullen Bunn and Alex Sanchez invite you on a journey unlike any in the annals of Battlestar Galactica!

“Battlestar Galactica is a franchise that meant a lot to me in my formative years, and now I have the opportunity to build on the cosmic mythology that was left behind when the television series ended,” says Cullen Bunn. “I’ve been given the chance to write characters that I love (and a few characters that I love to hate) within the universe (and following the rules) of the classic series. At the same time, I’m going to be doing something a little different, taking the story in a new direction that will provide fresh stories but will also honor everything that came before. I’m using some of the most mind-blowing aspects of the TV show to fuel a new story that I think old and new fans alike will enjoy.”

“The thing that most excites me about working on Battlestar Galactica is the chance to draw the characters, ships, and concepts that Ralph McQuarrie created for the original series. He’s one of my art heroes,” says Alex Sanchez. “I hope to do the material justice and give it a late 70′s, early 80′s feel, and hope that fans will react positively and enjoy the story and my art. With the creative team assembled, I know that they will!”

“We are lucky to count both Cullen Bunn and Battlestar Galactica as significant parts of the Dynamite family, and excited to see the excellent skills of Alex Sanchez devoted to a project here at Dynamite,” says CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “What was that old advertisement? ‘Great tastes that go great together?’ That’s exactly what we have here. A superstar writer, an accomplished illustrator, and one of the greatest science fiction franchises of all time! We couldn’t be more excited for this new series!”

The all-new Battlestar Galactica series by Bunn and Sanchez will ship with four covers: Cover A by series artist Sanchez himself, Cover B by Butch Guice, Cover C by Juan Doe, and a special “Action Figure” Cover D Subscription Edition by Michael Adams. Look for this new series solicited in the June cover-dated issue of Diamond Previews, with the first issue hitting comic shops on August 3rd!

It was reported yesterday that legendary comic artist Darwyn Cooke was entering palliative care due to a fight with an aggressive form of cancer. Today, many reports are coming through saying that his fight is now over, and we’ve lost Mr. Cooke.

Fans will remember him for his stellar work with DC Comics including Justice League: New Frontier or his illustrations of Richard Stark’s Parker for IDW.

Mr. Cooke was 54 at the time of his passing. Our hearts go out to his friends, fans, and family. We will update with ways to respectfully honor his memory and help them in their time of grieving.

UPDATE: Word from Darwyn Cooke’s official blog:

We regret to inform you that Darwyn lost his battle with cancer early this morning at 1:30 AM ET. We read all of your messages of support to him throughout the day yesterday. He was filled with your love and surrounded by friends and family at his home in Florida.

Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society and Hero Initiative.

Please continue to respect our privacy as we go through this very difficult time.

A longer statement will come later today.
