Valentine’s Day is almost here and in honour of a holiday celebrating love, here’s a list of couples in love from comics we love. Major Spoilers presents you with Top 5 Comic Book Couples!
Now that’s we’re into the new year, it’s time to look forward to see what we can expect in the coming months. By this time next year, we could be seeing a seriously revamped industry, particularly when it comes to the “Big Two” comics companies, Marvel and DC.
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.
Yesterday the Internet comic fan community erupted as it appeared Apple had banned comiXology from selling Saga #12 through their iOS app. Well earlier this afternoon comiXology CEO David Steinburger released a statement stating it was actually the digital comic provider making the decision. Read his statement and one from Saga writer Brian K. Vaughan after the jump.
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.
Saga is the tale of Alana and Marko, two lovers from warring worlds—Landfall and its moon, Wreath. They are joined by their baby, Hazel, who narrates their journeys through a war torn galaxy. 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 nine issues, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples continue to captivate readers with their enormous creativity and understanding of human nature.
Saga has received accolades for both its story and artwork, and rightfully so. This month’s issue puts the focus on the bounty hunter known as The Will, hired to hunt down our main characters. Does this shift work for the book? Major Spoilers has your review.
Or – “Holiday Week Means I Get The Pick Of The Litter…” Every week, when new comics ship, I leap forth to choose those that I’d like to review. Some are easy (nobody ever wants to cover ‘The Amazing Adventures Of Turnip-Man,’ so that one’s always mine) but good luck getting the jump on a review of an issue of Atomic Robo, Invincible or Amazing Spider-Man around these parts. Though I’m surprised to find Saga unclaimed in this week’s comic haul, I’m not complaining, as every issue of this book so far has been utterly brilliant. Your Major Spoilers review
