Brian K. Vaughan has spent the last few years as a writer for the television series Lost, but before his move to Hollywood, the writer was best known as the creator of some of the best comic books series of the past decade, like Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Marvel’s Runaways.
Since Lost wrapped in 2009, Vaughan’s been working on various projects — an original story called Roundtable, along with big-screen adaptations of some of his own comics, along with the screenplay for Stephen King’s Under the Dome film.
But while Vaughan has had great success with movies and television thus far, I have to say – we miss him in comics!!! Which is why it’s wonderful news that Vaughan is currently working on a new series for Image Comics called Saga, along with artist Fiona Staples. Saga #1 will be released this Wednesday, March 14, and you can check out the full cover and a 4-page preview from the issue here below.
I’ve already read Saga #1 (and we’ll have our official review up at Geeks of Doom tomorrow), and I can tell you, it’s awesome. It’s a brand new world created by Vaughan and Staples, who doesn’t just do the pencils for this sci-fi/fantasy series, she also does all the covers, inking, and coloring, along with the lettering for the narrative parts.
Honestly, it looks to me like Vaughan has another winner on his hands with Saga. Be sure to pick it up at your local comic book shop on Wednesday. If you order your print copies online, it the first issue is sure to sell out, so play it safe and pre-order Saga #1 along with issues #2 and #3.
Y: THE LAST MAN writer BRIAN K. VAUGHAN returns to comics with red-hot artist FIONA STAPLES for an all-new ONGOING SERIES! Star Wars-style action collides with Game of Thrones-esque drama in this original sci-fi/fantasy epic for mature readers, as new parents Marko and Alana risk everything to raise their child amidst a never-ending galactic war. The adventure begins in a spectacular DOUBLE-SIZED FIRST ISSUE, with forty-four pages of story with no ads for the regular price of just $2.99!
