In 'Battlestar Galactica (Classic): Starbuck,' we get an origin story of the cigar chomping, womanizing hero. It's not a bad one as origins go and includes a mystery.
Years (or yahrens) ago when Adama and Tighe were younger, they were pilots on a mission. When Adama crash lands and is trapped by a Cylon, he finds an unlikely savior in the scruffy blond kid who comes to his rescue. This turns out to be Starbuck and we see how his fate is intertwined with Adama's family going forward. We meet Starbuck's mentor. The one that taught him the personality quirks we love so much. When he wins a data disk that includes information on the attack on Umbra, he doesn't know what he's received. It leads to a mystery that will involve people he cares about before it's over.
I watched the original series when it was on, and this felt true to the characters from the show. I wasn't as crazy about the art style, but it wasn't a bad story.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, Dynamite Entertainment, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
