Image’s Saga Takes ‘Intermission’


Image Comics’ Saga #54 (MAY180242) — available in comic shops now — will be followed by a break for the hit series, according to a letter to readers from creators Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples.

In the letter, which was reported in multiple outlets, Vaughan stated, "After fifty-four issues and over 1,200 consecutive pages of sequential storytelling together, Fiona and I have decided to take an extended break before we eventually reunite with Saga #55. And unlike our usual three months of 'Vacationanza' between arcs, we plan to pause publication of this series for at least the next year."

"This obviously wasn't a decision we took lightly,” Vaughan continued, “but Fiona and I feel a responsibility to keep making the very best comic we can, and we both agreed that he only way to eventually finish the epic saga we set out to tell was with this one significant... let's call it... Intermission!"
