    Issue 2 was good. I'm feeling better about the "stowaways" already. Hopes are still high! Lol

    I finally got round to reading Issue #2 of SGU. It's an improvement but I'm still not entirely convinced about the story.

    The glaring continuity errors about Destiny and Atlantis really soured the experience of reading this issue for me. It's like the writers don't fact check anything before writing their scripts.

    At least the plot moved forward this time but these issues always seem to grind to a halt just as anything good is about to happen, but I realise that's due in part to the limitation of storytelling in comic books.

    I still dislike Thin!Eli. It was nice seeing a fat main character with as much importance as Eli.

    In literally the first shot of SGA's first episode "Rising", it states that Atlantis left earth "Several Million Years Ago", which implies multiple millions. During SGU, Rush makes it clear that Destiny predates Atlantis by a significant margin.

    But in Issue #2:

    Spoiler:
    The ancient lady in charge says that Destiny and Atlantis were competing projects with the same mission in mind (which, given the massive technological disparity between the two ships I severely doubt that) and that Destiny left Earth on its mission only 1 million years ago. StargateWikia also states that Destiny was launched about 50 million years ago, but I can't attest to how accurate that is.


    It's not a huge deal but it just bugged me, especially considering the gaff they made with the Traveller's Ancient Warship in the SGA comics, it just doesn't inspire much confidence with how the writers are fact-checking things.

    It's looking like Hearts and Minds part 3 is not going to be anywhere close to the 10/25 release date. No pre-sale options or new dates can be found on Amazon, Midtown Comics, or the AM shop.

    No surprise, but tracking these dates are tough, especially without a new tentative date. I guess I can just write on the calendar to search again next month, unless someone in this thread finds an update sooner.

    It didn't come out today and it's not on next week's tentative list, so the earliest we can expect it is Nov. 8.

    American Mythology solicited an Atlantis/Universe anthology issue for December and, in January, the first issue of Stargate Atlantis: Singularity ships (don't hold your breath on either of these coming out in their scheduled months with SGA and SGU being so late). Singularity is being billed as the "season finale" arc for the Atlantis comics, probably because after these three issues come out, they'll have enough for another trade paperback release.

    What's the difference between a comic, an anthology and a trade paperback?

    A trade paperback collects multiple single comic issues into one book or collection. An anthology comic will have multiple shorter comics stories in it. A lot of the time it will have more pages than a standard comic.
