Battlestar Galactica #4 - Walt Simonson art & cover

Walt Simonson
Battlestar Galactica v1 #4, 1979 - Marvel procures the rights to do a Battlestar Galactica comic book, based on the science fiction tv show of the same name. In this issue, a virus from a Cylon outpost threatens to wipe out the entire crew. Walt Simonson lends his talents to this adaptation, but his pencils are largely overwhelmed by the inker. His layouts are fairly standard, lacking his usual innovative approach. Simonson finally asserts himself on the final two pages. This is number 1 of 14 Battlestar Galactica issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Simonson or Battlestar Galactica issues. See also this blog's Simonson checklist.
