Battlestar Galactica #18 - Walt Simonson art

Battlestar Galactica v1 #18, 1980 - When the ship's biologist turns into a red-hued man-ape, Apollo and company must cure him of his condition while avoiding his bloodlust. Between Sal Buscema's layouts and Klaus Janson's inks, Walt Simonson's contribution is simply unrecognizable. The drawings are largely& mediocre and the panel sequences monotonous. The sole exception is the bold splash on page 17, depicting a confrontation between Apollo and the newly transformed Enoch. The high point of the issue, however, is Michael Golden's terrific simian-themed cover. This is number 10 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.

  1. Hi,

    Although I have never seen the cover in my life, I am almost sure that is Michael Golden and not Simonson. I was looking around for the characteristic "G" monogram but couldn't find it.
