Sci Fi Channel has joined in the nationwide Free Comic Book Day event with a combination of on-air and online promotions.  During the month of April, Sci Fi is featuring ads during the airing of Stargate SG-1 stacks on Monday night, directing viewers to "get a free comic book" at

SCI FI will also make available a custom-printed comic book bag and backing board for participating stores to give out to customers. The bag will be printed with the Free Comic Book Day and SCI FI Channel logos along the bottom, while the double sided backing board will promote the SCI FI Channel Season 7 launch of Stargate SG-1 on June 6, 2003 on one side and tease the SCI FI Channel mini-series event, Battlestar Galactica in December 2003. In the spirit of the day, both will be free of charge.

Fans can also enter Sci Fi's own competition, the GET IN THE GATE SWEEPSTAKES: the prize is a walk-on role in Stargate SG-1.  To find out more, go to the official Sci Fi Stargate site.  The promotional poster did disappoint fans as it was a re-run of last year's Season Six poster with the character of Jonas Quinn airbrushed out and replaced by returning favourite, the fans' beloved Daniel Jackson.  A new arrangement and images of all the characters in Season Seven would have been greatly appreciated.  Daniel's new look for Season Seven is certainly sparking a great deal of positive comment ;)

Daniel Jackson returns to SG-1 in Season Seven premiere "Fallen" and "Homecoming" due to air in a three hour marathon beginning 8pm ET/PT on Friday June 13.  The special presentation kicks off with a one-hour behind the scenes special called "Stargate SG-1: The Lowdown", a 'light-hearted'  mockumentary hosted by Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping. This special will help new viewers catch up with the past six seasons as well as a sneak preview of upcoming episodes in Season Seven. According to Sci Fi, Richard Dean Anderson, Don S. Davis and Teryl Rothery will also be featured, along with the showrunner, Exec Producer and writer Robert C. Cooper.  The Season Seven premiere "Fallen" airs at 9pm ET/PT and will be followed by "Homecoming" at 10pm ET/PT.
