The moment you have eagerly awaited is finally here, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ Saga is coming back after what was described as an “intermission” they had announced in 2018. Vaughan made the monumental announcement during his panel at the 2021 New York Comic-Con, in which he was accompanied by co-creator Fiona Staples during a Video Chat, SAGA would be entering the second half that would lead into its finale. Now, Issue 55 would be kicking off with a brand new story arc, which will be released on January 26th, 2022, and the best part? It will be a double-lengthed (44 pages) issue priced at $2.99.

Very nostalgic, am I right? A homage to the very first issue’s cover, Vaughan and Staples had this to say in regards to Saga returning, sharing their excitement:

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, 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.”

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!
