Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 11.25.19 AM

A few years back, I wrote twelve issues of a Battlestar Galactica comic book series that tied in with the brilliant Ron Moore reboot of the television series. Now Comixology is selling the digital versions of three volumes of those issues for just $2.99 each in its BSG sale! Had a ton of fun on that series and it had great art by Nigel Raynor and Jonathan Lau. Check it out and enjoy!

Examiner.com digs Greg Pak’s “Battlestar Galactica”

An excerpt:

Writer Greg Pak, best known in my eyes as the man who sired the epic ‘Planet Hulk’, knows the Galactica mythos well, pitting Colonial prophecy against Cylon paranoia as well as fusing Viper dogfights with marine firefights. Adama’s exchanges with Starbuck, as well Baltar’s conversations with his imaginary Six, sound dead-on, so much so that you can hear the actor’s voices reading the lines. The greatest touch is Adama’s journal entries, which he addresses to the real Zak’s memory.

Chadzilla Roars about Greg Pak’s “Battlestar Galactica” Vol. 1

The blog Chadzilla Roars has given the first volume of Greg Pak’s “Battlestar Galactica” comics series a rave review. Here’s an excerpt:

The creative team captures the tense drama and white knuckle action of the series, with the byzantinian plot twists they throw at the reader every few pages feeling organic to plot, rather than coming across as cheap “Gotcha!” gimmicks. I’ll be picking up and cracking open Volume 2 at some point in the, I hope, not too distant future. I’ve got some catching up to do.

2008.02.27 – “Battlestar Galactica” Vol. 3 trade paperback


The third trade paperback of the “Battlestar Galactica” comic book series written by Greg Pak hit comic book stores on February 27. This final storyline of the series focusses in particular on Sharon, the Cylon played by Grace Park on the television show. Here’s what WizardUniverse.com had to say about the last issue of the series:

… the emphasis here is on human relationships and human tragedy, even if the ‘human’ in question happens to be a machine. Throughout, it’s easy to hear the voices of Katee Sackhoff, Edward James Olmos, James Callis et al delivering Pak’s smart, sad dialogue. Way to close on a high note, BSG team.

Inside the Comic Writer’s Studio interviews Greg Pak


Eric Moreno has posted an extensive interview with Greg Pak as part of ComicBloc.com’s “Inside the Comic Writer’s Studio” series. The article covers everything from earliest influences to Ann Richards to improv comedy to Robot Stories and Warlock and Hulk. An excerpt:

ELM: When working with sci-fi concepts, can you just go all out and let loose all of your wildest ideas, no matter how implausible they may be or do you still have to reign some of them in?
GP: During my years doing improv comedy, one of the best things I learned was to take one crazy idea and explore it thoroughly. On an improv stage, there’s always a huge temptation to toss aliens and the Titanic and a presidential assassination subplot and an Elvis impersonation into a scene about a mouse who doesn’t like cheese. And you might get some cheap laughs with each new, crazy addition. But then you can easily lose the chance to really explore that mouse and his cheese problem and get to some really deep, character-based, emotionally resonant laughs.
In a similar way, sci-fi stories tend to work best when you take one concept and explore it thoroughly. The madder Hulk gets, the stronger he gets. That’s the central hook and it provides the essential metaphor. It might be cool to see him start to fly when he’s sad and get really smart when he’s hungry and shoot optic blasts from his eyes when he’s happy. But then it’s very easy to lose track of the story and end up with briefly flashy spectacle without heart or a point that no one wants to read after a few pages.
