Yeah, they are taking a LONG hiatus too.

I think I saw it was going to be around 8 months. Not sure if that was 8 months between issues or 8 months before they even sit down to start the next issue.

That is fine with me as I have only read that "Book One", collecting issues 1-18. Still need to buy the other ones!!
 Undecided Undecided

Of course having just looked on my bookshelf to find what issues where in that first collection, I now hijack this thread for a second.  Grin

I saw I have Hickman's The Manhattan Projects book one right beside that Saga one and it got me thinking, is that series never coming back? I could have sworn I saw, close to the time I bought that book, that Hickman was planning to continue it. I know there was another mini that came out, That I am 100% sure of, but all this book collects is the original, first series issues 1-10 ... WTH?Huh Did he change his mind?

Are you talking about beyond the 25 issues in the series and 4 issues in the follow-up mini "The Sun Also Rises"?

I knew they put a mini out (is that collected?), but I never knew they got back to the main storyline. (is that also collected?). So you are saying I am missing a vol2 or 3 of this? Well I have to remedy that!!!
Thanks

EDIT - Well I see where instocktrades.com (go there, save money ... not a sponsor  Grin) has vol 2 of the hardcover up, collecting issues 11-20 but I don't see a collected hc for the reaming 5 issues and the mini. I see them in trades, but no hc? Hopefully by the time I order and read vol 2 they will have vol 3 hc ready?

Hmmm.  Well, Vol 5 of the TPB is issues 21-25 and Vol 6 is the Sun Beyond the Stars mini.  Vol 6 came out in 2016.  So you would think they would combine these two into a HC Vol 3 but considering it's been 3 years...I wouldn't hold my breath.   Undecided

From what I was just reading...consider it over. And I wouldn't believe a 3rd HC is coming either. It sounds like the main series was actually cancelled/I mean 'ended'

And Brian K Vaughan told Entertainment Weekly back in April that the series will run for 108 issues.  That means we are exactly at the mid-way point!


"And Fiona and I are excited to finally share with everyone that this compendium represents the first half of our story, a planned 108-issue epic!” Vaughan tells EW. “We’re so grateful to our amazing readers for their support and patience, and we hope this compendium will be the perfect holiday gift to help introduce your loved ones to the continuing adventures of Hazel and her star-crossed family.”

ME TOO

 Wink Grin

And it is currently preorder priced at $31 at Amazon. As I only have the first hardcover, yeah, I slacked up and haven't got to the 2nd or 3rd one yet, I may have to jump on this instead. I am scared about it not being a hardcover, so ... I don't know, maybe I just go ahead and buy volumes 2 and 3 at In-Stock Trades
 Undecided

I am kinda sad it is ending at 108 though I am sure if it went too much longer the story wouldn't hit as well. But what do I know? I still haven't read past that volume one HC I have so .. damn, I need to get caught up on this story.

EDIT - Dang ... I don't know ... Instock has volume 2 and 3 at $29 each ... $31 for the entire story of almost $60 just to get the last 2/3rds? I do prefer the HC, so yeah, I think I will go that way ... I think

BRIAN K. VAUGHAN & FIONA STAPLES’ SAGA RETURNS ON JANUARY 26, 2022



PORTLAND, Ore. 10/09/2021 — Image Comics is pleased to announce the return of multiple award winning, bestselling series Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples to shelves. The long anticipated Saga #55 issue will kick off a new story arc and land in stores on Wednesday, January 26 from Image Comics.

“Other than my own family, collaborating with Fiona Staples on Saga is the most important thing in my life, so I can’t thank readers and retailers enough for their patience,” said Vaughan. “I think our next 54 issues will be even more shocking, strange, and spectacular than the first 54, so we can’t wait to be back on the shelves at your local comic shop soon.”

Staples added: “I've really missed connecting with readers through the pages of Saga, so I'm thrilled to roll up my sleeves and dive into this world again. The next arc is already going places I never imagined. I'm so grateful that we're able to keep doing this!"

At long last, Hazel and her star-crossed family are finally back! But where the hell have they been? As thanks for fans’ endless patience, the Saga team is proud to return with a double-length issue—44 pages of story for the regular $2.99 price point—without variant covers or gimmicky renumbering. Just more pulse-pounding adventure, heart-wrenching character drama, and gloriously graphic sex and violence, as Saga begins the second half of the series and the most epic chapter yet.

“Saga launched at Image during the company’s 20th anniversary in 2012, so it seems more than fitting that the series is returning to shops just in time for our 30th anniversary next year,” said Eric Stephenson, Chief Creative Officer and Publisher at Image Comics. “I can think of few better ways to celebrate what Image is all about than by welcoming back one of the most incredible storytelling teams in comics history as they embark on the second half of a true epic-in-the-making.”

Saga has sold seven million copies to date across single issue, trade paperback, compendium, hardcover, and digital editions and has been translated into 20 languages. The series also boasts multiple Eisner Awards, Harvey Awards, a Hugo Award, British Fantasy Award, Goodreads Choice Award, Shuster Award, Inkwell Award, Ringo Award, and more. It has been featured in such mainstream media outlets as TIME, Entertainment Weekly, The Atlantic, NPR, and more. The series has become a pop culture phenomenon and has been immortalized with references and easter eggs appearing in such popular TV shows as Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, and The Simpsons.

Saga #55 (Diamond Code NOV210030) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, January 26. Image projects the demand for the issue will be high and encourages fans to contact their local comic shop right away to place their pre-orders before Monday, January 3.
