The awesome power of Being Lynda Carter.

So I was doing a little restocking of the Battlestar Galactica back issues, and if I had to see this cover, so do you:

Also, I’m still a little annoyed (just a little, no big whoop) by the closeness of the logos for the comic book based on the original ’70s TV series, and the comic based on the Sci-Fi Channel revival. Here’s the ’70s version:

And here’s the “modern” version:

They’re marginally different, but if you’re going through a bunch of these at once, trying to keep them straight can be mildly problematic, particularly with the occasional cover featuring an unrecognizably-drawn character or two. And this is coming from someone who’s watched both versions of the show…someone else more unfamiliar with the properties would likely find this just a tad more frustrating.

Again, it’s not that big of a deal. Just a minor gripe, really. However, the series based on the original TV show is actually called Classic Battlestar Galactica, according to the indicia inside. We couldn’t get a tiny “c l a s s i c” above the logo or anything?

(And yes, I know the cover illustrations should make it obvious which series is which. But they don’t always…particularly when the old-style Cylons pop up on the covers of the modern-era series.)

In other news:

  • I mentioned on Thursday that nearly all our copies of last Wednesday’s Cable #1 had loose centerfolds. I’ve since heard from a couple other stores that they had bunk copies of Cable #1 as well…along with some other Marvel books from that week. And I’ve noticed a copy or two of the new Clan Destine is a bit iffy as well.

    As long as it was just the one comic with a loose centerfold problem, there was a chance that maybe, just maybe, Marvel might produce replacements. But if it’s more widespread than that, the likelihood that Marvel would essentially reissue a week’s worth of new books is incredibly small. Maybe I’ll be surprised, but I’m not betting on it.

  • I was going to cover a couple more points people have brought up about the Watchmen costumes, and just spent about twenty minutes fiddling with what I was going to post, and then I realized that, really, enough’s enough. I think you all know where I’m coming from by now.

    But, I wanted to keep this next part of the post, just to remind everyone that Lynda Carter managed to make even this costume work:

    …just through the awesome power of Being Lynda Carter. Huzzah!
