The official description from Dynamite:

And where do Baby Cylons come from? Come join the new and smaller adventures aboard the Battlestar Galactica. And if that isn’t enough, each Li’l book comes with a two-page activity sheet!

Li'l Battlestar GalacticaThe L’l comics are always a fun alternative to the mainstream comics, taking some well known titles and characters and showing them in a unique and fun manor.

Writers Art Baltazar and Franco know just what parts of the TV series to make light off, allowing fans of the series to enjoy the comical tone without it feeling as if the series is being mocked. The issue also hade wonderful comic timing, with it feeling very slapstick at times. It was however not quite perfect, as not all of the jokes paid off. This is however a common thing with comedy in comics and it didn’t take away from the overall fun nature of the issue.

Baltazar also produced the artwork on this issue, showing the amazingly fun and innocent style that has made him famous. It is hard not to love Baltazar’s artwork in these type of stories, as although his art may not have the same level of quality as the likes of Jim Lee or Ivan Reis it has a lot of charm to it. Baltazar’s art is also a key factor behind the comedy of this issue, as he shows the character emotion in such a way that makes it hard not to laugh at the idiotic events.

Li’l Battlestar Galactica is a fun comic that can be enjoyed by both fans of the TV series or people just learning of Battlestar Galactica for the first time. It is extremely fun and I would highly recommend it.

4.5/5

I am a nerd, and nerds are cool. Why? Because they get to go to magical places, and enjoy wonderous stories that could never happen in real life. In particular I've always had a keen interested in comics, having accumulated a vast collection over the many years. I eventually decided to utilise my vast knowledge of comics as well as my many opinions and become a review. This is were UTF came in, as after spotting my blog reviews they offered me a spot on their elustrius review team. One that I have been more than joyous to fill and have loved being a part of ever since.
