Comic publisher American Mythology is putting together a new run of Stargate comics that will focus on the final series in the franchise, and aims to pick up where a potential third season would have if the show had survived. The series is called Stargate Universe (duh), and subtitled “Back to Destiny.” The first issue is set for release later this month.
If you’ll remember, the Season 2 finale ended on the cliffhanger of Eli all alone and with his life in the balance, trying to find a way to fix the damaged stasis pod before the ship jumps. The series wasn’t perfect, but it really ended on a high note, so it’s great to see that story finally get a chance to be told. The comics are officially licensed, though the original show writers aren’t heavily involved in the comic series. But hey, this is probably the closest we’ll ever get to seeing that particular cliffhanger resolved in any capacity, so we’ll take it.
