The following appeared in the Battlestar Galactica forum at the SciFi channel's website....!

Dynamite Entertainment is publishing a comic-book series based on our Battlestar Galactica series. The comics' author, Brandon Jerwa, and the actor who brings Tom Zarek to life, Richard Hatch, are here for a live Q&A on the Battlestar Galactica forum, scheduled for Friday, January 5, at 8:30 p.m ET, 5:30 p.m. PT.

Dynamite will give away 10 autographed copies of Zarek #1 to participants.

Tom Zarek: The Revolution Within #1 reveals content from Zarek's own novel "The Revolution Within," which for the first time chronicles the origin of Tom Zarek and the Sagittaron colony. The four-issue series shows Tom's beginnings as he grows up in a loving home in a slave state, and alongside a Cylon work force--all in the run-up to the First Cylon War. It's through these humble--and tragic--beginnings that he becomes the man we see in Battlestar Galactica today and this is where you'll learn all about him!

Of course we're biased, but Tom Zarek: The Revolution Within is Jerwa's most poignant and powerful work to date. It's illustrated by Adriano Batista, and features stunning, cinematic covers by both Batista and Stjepan Sejic, with a street date of Wednesday, December 28.

Brandon Jerwa ( is a Seattle-based comic writer. After breaking into the industry and writing several years' worth of G.I. Joe books for Devil's Due Publishing (G.I. Joe, Front Line, Master & Apprentice I & II, Snake-Eyes: Declassified), Jerwa was recruited by Dynamite Entertainment to co-write Highlander with Michael Avon Oeming.

Brandon Jerwa has written several articles for SCIFIpedia:
