Saga #1 (Excerpt)

Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

An excerpt from Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona StaplesBrian K. Vaughan, the creator and writer behind some of the best original comics of the past ten years (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Runaways, people. Damn.) is launching Saga, a new comic series on Wednesday, March 14 with artist Fiona Staples (North 40, Northlanders, and more).

And we’ve got a great 6-page preview of this sci-fi/fantasy epic for you right here! Expect tragedy, action, magic, multi-gender issues... basically, expect a surprisingly tender Star Wars with kind of a lot of swearing.

Saga #1 is 44 pages of story from Image Comics at only $2.99, which is a refreshing price for a comic these days. Click through to read the preview.

Have to agree with mellowtrouble, seeing a breastfeeding momma on a cover is awesome.
