A few weeks ago, a Spoilerite reached out to me via Twitter (twitter.com/MajorSpoilers) to ask when or if Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples would return. It is going to happen sooner than we think, as new issues are scheduled to arrive in January 2022.
“Other than my own family, collaborating with Fiona Staples on Saga is the most important thing in my life, so I can’t thank readers and retailers enough for their patience,” said Vaughan in a press release from Image Comics. “I think 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 added: “I’ve 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!”
At long last, Hazel and her star-crossed family are finally back! But where the hell have they been? As thanks for fans’ endless patience, the Saga team is proud to return with a double-length issue—44 pages of story for the regular $2.99 price point—without variant covers or gimmicky renumbering. Just more pulse-pounding adventure, heart-wrenching character drama, and gloriously graphic sex and violence, as Saga begins the second half of the series and the most epic chapter yet.
Saga #55 arrives on January 26, 2022.
