Katee Sackhoff will join the long line of celebrities that are taking a stab at comic books, a medium that Hollywood seems to be more in love with than “traditional” literature. Along with Rosario Dawson, Tyrese Gibson and Rashida Jones, Sackhoff will be teaming up with a co-writer named Sxv’leithan Essex on a comic book called Versus, which in a recent interview with TV Guide Magazine, she said would be announced at next year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
In the interview, Sackhoff also explained her love for much of Jeph Loeb’s comic work, and in particular just about everything he’s done with Superman. Sackhoff didn’t have much to say about a publisher, artist, or when we could expect to see the book hit shelves, but she assured that all will be revealed next year in San Diego.
Sackhoff, who most famously played Starbuck on the reboot of the Sci-Fi Channel series, Battlestar Galactica, will be appearing in the upcoming season of 24. Her co-writer, Sxv’leithan Essex, has a couple of credits to his name including a horror film called Bled, a series of Metal music videos, and an upcoming werewolf fight club film titled Growl.
