Comic creator Brian K. Vaughan says the legend finally returns in 2022

Y: The last person Writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples today announced the long-awaited news in the Vaughan spotlight panel at the 2021 New York Comic Con. Saga -Their heart-wrenching, distorted, sexy, violent, and opera space epic-will be republished after a long period of suspension in 2022.

“I really miss connecting with readers through the page Saga“,” Staples said through the press release, “so I am very happy to roll up my sleeves and dive into this world again. The next arc has reached a place I never imagined. “

Saga Since its launch in March 2012, it has been a bestseller in comic shops and bookstores. Saga #54 was published in July 2018 and Vaughan stated that the series has reached the midpoint and will be shelved indefinitely so that he and Staples can rest and focus on other projects.In the classic Saga Style, despite knowing that the series will be suspended for many years, Saga #54 still ends with a sudden and devastating character death.

“I thank readers and retailers for their patience,” Vaughan said at a press conference. “I think our next 54 issues will be more shocking, strange and spectacular than the first 54 issues, so we can’t wait to get back to the shelves of your local comics shop as soon as possible.”

Image Comics also shared the long-awaited first look Saga #55: The cover, featuring the familiar young character Hazel (the narrator of the book) and two new adult faces.
