SAGA: Brian K. Vaughan And Fiona Staples Will Finally Bring The Image Comics Series Back In 2022

We've been waiting for this news for what feels like forever, but Image Comics has finally announced the return of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga with next January's issue #55. Check it out...

Over the weekend, Image Comics announced that the multiple award-winning, bestselling series Saga is set to return with the long-delayed issue #55 in January. Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples will reunite for this new story arc picking up with Hazel and her star-crossed family. 

Where the hell have they been? Plot details haven't been fully revealed yet, but this double-length issue (44-pages for just $2.99) promises what the publisher describes as "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."

"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," Vaughan said in a press release. "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 adds: "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!"

Saga kicked-off in 2012, and it's been a couple of years since we've been able to visit this world. Since launching, the series has sold seven million copies to date across single issue, trade paperback, compendium, hardcover, and digital editions, winning multiple Eisner Awards, Harvey Awards, a Hugo Award, British Fantasy Award, Goodreads Choice Award, and more.

Saga #55 is set to be released on Wednesday, January 26 digitally and in comic book stores.
