Rebellion Acquires Classic British Comics Archive

In a major acquisition Rebellion, the independent publisher behind the bestselling comics and graphic novel imprint 2000 AD, has purchased the archive of Fleetway and IPC Youth group comics from Egmont UK Ltd. The archive is famous for the weekly comics Battle, Action, Tammy and Roy of the Rovers among many others, and the acquisition represents a significant expansion in Rebellion’s publishing portfolio, broadening its reach into the growing UK comics and graphic novel market.

Rebellion’s owners and founders, Jason and Chris Kingsley, previously acquired 2000 AD, and its sister publication The Judge Dredd Megazine, from Egmont in 2000. Rebellion has gone on to return 2000 AD to the top of the sales chart as the UK’s #1 bestselling teenage newsstand comic, and its Judge Dredd collections regularly lead the UK graphic novel charts. 

The Reimagined BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Universe Returns in GODS AND MONSTERS, By Karl Kesel and Alec Morgan

Hot on the heels of the release of the classic Battlestar Galactica series earlier this month, Dynamite announces the continuation of the Reimagined 2004 universe storyline with the release of Battlestar Galactica: Gods and Monsters this November! Karl Kesel and Alec Morgan team up for all new stories from the groundbreaking re-imagined series!

Baltar believes he was chosen by god- and now moves closer to being one himself when he constructs a living Cylon Centurion! Is it his greatest achievement or biggest mistake? Truly obedient or waiting for the perfect time to strike? Is it the protector of Sharon's unborn baby or its greatest threat? Will the Cylon's bloody history repeat itself?

"All the characters everyone loves are here - Sharon, Helo, Adama, Tigh, Roslin, D'anna, Apollo, and of course, Starbuck. And back on Caprica - Anders, Brother Cavil, and the rest of the Resistance fighters," says writer Karl Kesel. "Most importantly, we get to see Baltar go total 'mad scientist' and build a Cylon Centurion from battle-damaged parts."
