Here’s the highly recommended first volume of Saga, Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man) and Fiona Staples‘ (North 40) sci-fi thing that’s turned out to be one of the best comics of the year. We’ve got an exclusive bookplate edition with all-new Fiona Staples art to push your way and yes, we are fully aware that the actual book is already out this week. Ha ha. Yeeeah.
(No really, we had this all under control and on time and then it went wrong at the printer. But now all we’ve just got to get Staples to sign the bookplates at some point in her busy comic convention schedule. It will be with us very shortly. Probably by the end of the month. Sorry for the delay.)
SAGA is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe. Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in a sexy, subversive drama for adults. This specially priced volume collects the first arc of the smash hit series The Onion A.V. Club calls “the emotional epic Hollywood wishes it could make.”
Here’s The Beat’s glowing review of the first issue. Issues #1 to #6 are collected in this trade paperback so if you’re yet to jump on board, now’s a good time – issue #7 isn’t out yet so you’ll be entirely up to date. There’s a mildly spoilery interview with both of them at
io9 and one just with Vaughan at Comicbook Resources. Back before the first issue had even landed Vaughan was so confident he was onto a winner that he said if you didn’t like it you could post the comic back to him and he’d refund you the three bucks. The offer, apparently, still stands.
Our exclusive bookplate edition is limited to just 200 copies, all signed by Fiona Staples, for no more than the regular cover price of £7.50. If you’d like to preorder a copy or arrange a mail order send us an email to email@example.com and we’ll sort it out for you.
