I’ve never read a graphic novel before. I looked over the display and picked this one. I’ve never watched Battlestar Galactica (BSG) or read any of the books. In the book Captain Adama and his crew are battling the Cylons. Reading the book with no background on Battlestar Galactica is extremely confusing. The book was fast paced, with a lot of action as the cover suggested. It had a lot of rough language and violence and shouldn’t be read by a young child, even though it is basically a comic book. It probably does appeal to young men and Battlestar Galactica fans. I think these books are good if they can keep young people reading. I didn’t like it.
