At last! The epic story you’ve been dying to see is here, a galaxy and timeline-spanning saga bringing the two very different (and yet so very much alike) crews of the Battlestar Galactica series together. But don’t expect this historic meeting of heroes to be friendly: they have no idea why they have been brought together, or what the result of this unprecedented meeting is. And it starts here as the legendary Commander Cain and the crew of the Pegasus are revealed to be alive and have encountered an individual they never thought they would meet: the last Cylon. All this has happened before, but there will NEVER be anything like it again!

Review: Action Comics #994

Action Comics #994It’s the time-hopping team-up of Superman and Booster Gold-and on their quest to verify Mr. Oz’s identity, a mysterious force attempts to sabotage the journey!

Something’s going wrong with Superman and Booster Gold’s trip to the past. Time is fracturing and rewriting giving us a glimpse of what could have been. Writer Dan Jurgens plays “this is your life” in Action Comics #994 as the two heroes are on the run and hoping that time doesn’t shift too much by their actions.

The comic plays out pretty well explaining what’s happening and eventually giving us something of a why. But, it’s still time travel and with that… things get messy. Jurgens delivers fun though. This arc is a go with the flow one. Don’t think too hard and instead enjoy the ride.

Seeing Booster with Superman is the true draw. Both are heroes that are so different in personality. It’s entertaining to see how the two interact.

The art by Jurgens along with Art Thibert, Johnny Desjardins, and Joe Prado continues the retro style from last issue. It’s solid work that really reminds me of Superman comics from the 80s and 90s. With the story being about time travel, that feels rather appropriate and adds to the fun.

Overall, the storyline is a fun one and a change of pace from the previous focus on Mr. Oz. At the same time, it also continues what’s set up there. This is a prime example of the popcorn fun comics can be and continues a story I can’t wait to see where it goes.
