1978: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA in GALACTIC WARS COMIX (Warren) **UPDATED**

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA GIRDS ITS LOINS!*

I recently unearthed this little oddity from Jim Warren's back-catalogue of quickies: GALACTIC WARS COMIX from 1978.

It's a magazine-format anthology of SF short-stories but also contains a set report from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA's Gun on Ice Planet Zero, herein still known as The Ultimate Weapon, the second story (after Saga of a Star World aka Battlestar Galactica: The Movie) to go before the cameras.

It's the only contemporary set report that I've seen although why they felt the need to pad-out the article with stills from the old FLASH GORDON movie serials is slightly beyond me.

*really!

UPDATE: Since I first posted this, I've realised the Battlestar article also appeared in FAMOUS MONSTERS magazine issue 149.  I've posted the cover here.  Warren really had no shame!
