Didja Notice? 

 

On page 5, I guess we are supposed to be seeing a Number One and a Number Eight walking through the corridors of the basestar. But Number One looks more like Admiral Adama without his glasses...and the two even appear to be wearing Colonial military uniforms for some reason! The corridors also look closer to those of the BSG2000-Galactica than the dark, nearly featureless corridors of the BSG2000-basestars.

 

On page 6, the splash page of Count Iblis looks less like actor Patrick Macnee than unrelated actor Ray Wise (known to PopApostle readers as Leland Palmer on Twin Peaks).
Ray Wise as Count Iblis

 

On pages 8 and 9, BSG70-Commander Adama looks like BSG2000-Admiral Adama.

 

On page 16, BSG70-Sheba goes to her father to talk to him, and his face and uniform are that of BSG70-Commander Adama instead! And they are onboard the BSG2000-Galactica instead of the BSG70-Pegasus!

 

Throughout the issue, characters and locales seem...off...
