We’ve been waiting more than 15 years for a sequel to the 1999 sci-fi cult classic Galaxy Quest, and it looks like this is the closest we’re going to get.
The first issue for IDW’s new comic Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues has arrived, and some variant covers and preview pages have been released to generate some buzz for the quasi-sequel. The opening jumps right into some good old-fashioned space action, and if it can capture half the charm of the film, this could be a fun one.
The comic is written by Erik Burnham and illustrated by Nacho Arranz. Check out the project’s official synopsis below:
Once upon a time, a troupe of has-been actors that starred on an old sci-fi show were enlisted by an alien race to save them from an intergalactic tyrant. Despite being way out of their depth, the cast somehow managed to save the aliens and stay alive… but their actions in outer space may have had dire consequences for another world. Join us this January as the cast of GALAXY QUEST returns for another bombastic journey into space!
The first issue is in stores now. Do you plan on checking it out?
