Image Comics’ Saga Goes on Extended Hiatus


Saga #54

Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples‘ long-running series Saga will go on a year-long “intermission,” as they called it, after this week’s issue #54.

Vaughan made the announcement in the backmatter of Saga #54, explaining:

“After fifty-four issues and over 1,200 consecutive pages of sequential storytelling together, Fiona and I have decided to take an extended break before we eventually reunite with Saga #55. And unlike our usual three months of ‘Vacationanza’ between arcs, we plan to pause publication of this series for at least the next year.”

“This obviously wasn’t a decision we took lightly, but Fiona and I feel a responsibility to keep making the very best comic we can, and we both agreed that he only way to eventually finish the epic saga we set out to tell was with this one significant… let’s call it… Intermission!”

Vaughan further added that this break will allow them to “creatively recharge (and to reconnect with non-fictional families).” Image Comics publisher Eric Stephenson and Fonografiks are in full support of the decision.

Saga #54 is on sale this week.
