"Star Wars meets A Game of Thrones"

"Star Wars for perverts."

so says Writer Brian K Vaughn on his and her (artist Fiona Staples)

 Hugo award nominated series Saga 


Collects issues 7 through 12 /£11
Vol 1 also available /£7.50

The smash-hit ongoing epic continues! Thanks to her star-crossed parents Marko and Alana, newborn baby Hazel has already survived lethal assassins, rampaging armies, and alien monstrosities, but in the cold vastness of outer space, the little girl encounters something truly frightening: her grandparents!

I realized that making comics and making babies were kind of the same thing and if I could combine the two, it would be less boring if I set it in a crazy sci-fi fantasy universe and not just have anecdotes about diaper bags ... I didn’t want to tell a Star Wars adventure with these noble heroes fighting an empire. These are people on the outskirts of the story who want out of this never-ending galactic war ... I’m part of the generation that all we do is complain about the prequels and how they let us down ... And if every one of us who complained about how the prequels didn’t live up to our expectations just would make our own sci-fi fantasy, then it would be a much better use of our time.

What am I working on for the next eternity (hopefully)? An epic new fantasy/sci-fi series with Brian K. Vaughan! It’s entirely creator-owned and will be out from Image in early 2012. This is one I can sink my teeth into.

Oh and Brian's REALLY busy right now!
