Earlier this month, we reported that the cast and crew of the 1999 cult classic Galaxy Quest
were open to returning for a sequel, and we were frankly pretty excited about the idea. Now, by Grabthar’s hammer, it’s actually happening… in the form of a comic book. That’s still exciting, right? Maybe?
According to Comic Book Resources, Idw Publishing will put out a Galaxy Quest
ongoing series from Ghostbusters and Shooting Star
comics writer Erik Burnham and artist Nacno Arranz, which will hit store shelves in 2015.
Burnham recently talked a bit about the direction of the book, and how it connects with the film, saying:
“Well, at the end of their movie, Tim Allen
’s character, Jason, used the Omega 13 device to rewind time 13 seconds and undo the catastrophic death of his crew. (Um… sorry for the 15 year-old spoilers!) Messing with time. Maybe that affected more than the ship.
