Brian 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.
