Swoon Now! Saga #1

By now many of you will have read Saga #1.  I know because it's selling well - and at only £1.50 (for a week) why not?  As Warren Ellis pointed out in his review (see previous post) the issue is going through that difficult first issue process of introducing the reader to Brian K. Vaughan's rules for his sci-fi and fantasy universe (pretty much science versus magic) but it has heart, humour and is bristling with potential.  So why not get a peak into some of that potential by reading some interviews with Vaughan and Fiona Staples over at ComicsAlliance (see here) and TheBeat (see here) including his reasons for going to a resurgent Image and the influence of children's books.  WARNING: he uses the word 'paracosm' (I looked it up - it means a prolonged fantasy world invented by children; can have a definite geography and language and history).
