Fellow fans who are bitter about the horrible cliffhanger we were left off at in 2009 will be thrilled to hear that ‘Stargate Atlantis: Return to Pegasus’ is poised to bring the television series to print through American Mythology. Mark L. Haynes, J.C. Vaughn, and Greg LaRocque are set to have the story follow up where we were left off with Atlantis stuck on Earth.
At this time it isn’t clear if the comic will be following the story arc exactly as planned for an upcoming season or a 2-hour movie that was meant to bring closure to the series. Honestly, I don’t really care if it is as long as the story gets a conclusion.
With the television universe most likely permanently in limbo due to the upcoming ‘Stargate’ Trilogy, this is probably the best that we’ll be able to hope for more ‘Stargate’ from the small screen anytime in the near future.
The extended official synopsis has the following details of what we can expect:
Stargate: Atlantis is back with a brand new monthly comic book series that continues the television series continuity and is jam packed with fun extras! Comic illustrating legend, Greg LaRocque (Flash Return of Barry Allen, Web of Spider-Man), joins the team of Mark L. Haynes and J.C. Vaughn (Fox’s 24) to deliver the next official chapter in Stargate: Atlantis mythology.
Following the destruction of the Super Hive ship, Atlantis and her crew find themselves stranded on Earth. But a startling discovery sends the team in search of a new Gate system and reveals that the horrors of the Pegasus Galaxy are not far away. A new threat rises to challenge the crew and stop the city from returning to its rightful place. Come with us on this new comic book season of Stargate Atlantis and join the fight to get #BackToPegasus!
Not only that but we have one preview page and a couple of cover variants of the first issue that you can check out below!
I can’t wait for the series to be released in April and hope that this will be just the start of an ongoing series that will last for quite some time.
