Captain's Library: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Part 1

The Marvel adaptation of the 1970s movie/tv series went thru several versions...
...and this is the first one...the extremely-limited/never-reprinted version, from the magazine-sized Marvel Super-Special #8 (1978).
...and thus we pause to catch our breath...until next week...and the cataclysmic conclusion.
This first half of the movie version of Battlestar Galactica was presented by writer Roger McKenzie and artist/colorist/painter Ernie Colon.
We'll have the story behind the change from magazine to tabloid format next time.

Captain's Library: HOT WHEELS "Super Chick"

It's been awhile since we've presented a Hot Wheels tale... let's go with the final story of the never-reprinted series, from DC's Hot Wheels #6 (1971).
Written by Joe Gill, penciled by Ric Estrada, and inked by Dick Giordano & Frank McLaughlin, this story fills out the only issue of the series without any art by animated series' lead designer Alex Toth!
(Neal Adams did the cover and lead story as shown HERE!)
