SilverBulletComicBooks.com interviews Greg Pak

Steven G. Saunders of SilverBulletComicBooks.com has interviewed Greg Pak, writer of the “Battlestar Galactica” comic book series from Dynamite. An excerpt:

SGS: Who have been your favorite characters to write?
GP: I love writing Adama. Somehow his less-is-more terseness appeals to me. I particularly like writing his scenes with Roslin — there’s a quiet but wary understanding between them that lends itself to fun, subtle moments.
SGS: For those unfamiliar with this title, are there new characters in the Battlestar Galactica comic; and if there are, do any have pivotal roles?
GP: Our biggest “new” character is Zak, Adama’s dead son and Starbuck’s dead lover. Zak was introduced in the television miniseries and has a few big flashback scenes in the first season. But we brought him back in the flesh for the comic book series — but is it the real Zak, or a twisted Cylon trick?
SGS: Are there things with the Cylons that will be explored that haven’t been in the show?
GP: You bet. Issues #4-8 give us some glimpses into the “lives” of the original Cylon Centurions. And Issues #6-12 will explore the psyche of the Sharon Cylon in a major way.
