The second movie was entirely assembled from the (well-funded) TV episodes The Living Legend and Fire in Space. The former supplied most of the plot, the latter the disaster movie-style effects work.
Look-In were still running their regular Battlestar comic strip during this period.
Elsewhere, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK had been on British cinema screens since 21 May and Marvel UK were just launching their new range of Pocket Books, including US Battlestar reprints in STAR HEROES.

Is there anyplace to see ALL of the BSG Look In comic series? It seems quite good and I would love to share it with my 10 yr old.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't that be fantastic? Unfortunately, none of the LOOK-IN BG material has ever been reprinted (as far as I know). Some of the BUCK ROGERS IN THE 25th CENTURY material is available in the (excellent) LOOK-IN eighties compilation book.Delete
The bulk (but not all) of Marvel's BG strips were released in two new trade paperbacks by Titan Books a few years back. They seem to turn-up as remaindered copies from time-to-time but they're almost certainly out-of-print now and will only get rarer.
