Saga Midnight Release Signing

SAGA!!! After months of anticipation, the new Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples series from Image Comics has arrived. We were at the San Diego Comic Con panel last summer where Vaughan & Staples first announced the series (we even got a nifty little poster signed by the creators) but it's been a tough, long wait ever since.

So last Tuesday the wonderful comic store in Hollywood, Meltdown Comics, hosted a Brian K. Vaughan Q&A moderated by Damon Lindelof (co-creator of the TV show Lost), followed by a midnight Saga release signing. It was a fun night, Vaughan talked about his inspiration for the series and how he missed making comics, but kept the conversation far from any spoilers. He seemed like a really nice guy and took the time to talk to everyone in line. He also signed the copies of Pride of Baghdad and Runaways vol.1 that we brought along.

After reading the first issue of Saga, I got to say, BKV IS BACK! The issue does a great job of setting up its universe, portrays well rounded main characters and clearly lays out multiple hurdles for them down the line, all with gorgeous art to boot. I'm glad Vaughan is back making comics and hope he continues doing it for a long time to come!
