Press Release It’s Canada vs. the United States in an international signing tour to promote the release of WE STAND ON GUARD #1, writer Brian K. Vaughan’s first new Image series since the launch of SAGA, and a return to comics for legendary Hollywood storyboard artist (and proud Canadian) Steve Skroce.
Saga is the tale of Alana and Marko, two lovers from warring worlds—Landfall and its moon, Wreath. Their baby, Hazel, narrates their journeys through a war torn galaxy. Along the way, the family is joined by Izabel, a ghost babysitter, and Marko’s mother, Klara. It is a Romeo and Juliet space opera, filled with unique characters and fascinating scenery. The series blends elements of science fiction and fantasy, with a hint of politics and humanism. After escaping the clutches of mercenary Freelancers looking to kill them, the group arrives at Quietus and meet Alana’s idol, D. Oswald Heist.
Last month readers were confused when the latest series from Image, SEX, was not available for download from leading digital comic provider comiXology’s iOS app. It eventually came out that Apple had banned the sale of the comic due to its sexual nature and the tech giant is back at it this week by banning Saga #12 from Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Stapes. Take the jump to read what the writer had to say in response.
