Saga fans will certainly be looking forward to 2022, as Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ award-winning Image Comics series return to the shelves on January 26 after a three and a half year hiatus.
Saga #55 issue will begin a new story arc and Staples promises readers that there will be many more, as “…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 has also “…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!”
Eric Stephenson, Chief Creative Officer and Publisher at Image Comics, is looking forward to the return of the popular and best-selling series and thinks it is “…more than fitting that the series is returning to shops just in time for our 30th anniversary next year. 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 over seven million copies to date across single issues, trade paperbacks, compendiums, and hardcover and digital editions. Saga also has a worldwide following, having been translated into 20 languages.
