‘Battlestar Galactica’ Manga Coming in March
Come March, just as Battlestar Galactica signs off after four amazing seasons on Sci Fi Channel, Tokyopop will be releasing Battlestar Galactica: Echoes of New Caprica, a Manga anthology volume that will feature stories from the Cylon occupation and human escape from New Caprica by a variety of creators, including Richard Hatch, who has appeared in both television editions.
UDON Studios produced the cover art but full contents have yet to be revealed.
Tokyopop has been reaching out to new readers through licensed Manga starting with Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation. Last month, they announced CSI: interns for release next September. Written by Sekou Hamilton with art by Steven Cummings (Pantheon High), spotlights a group of teenagers taking part in an internship program at the Las Vegas Criminal Investigations Unit under the eyes of Gil Grissom and Catherine Meadows.
Other licenses to date include Labyrinth and Ghostbusters.
