14-time Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Brian K. Vaughan is back with his Image Comics “Saga” series after a three-year hiatus.

Co-written with artist Fiona Staples, “Saga” follows the life of Hazel, born to parents who fight for opposite worlds in an endless war.

After winning 12 Eisner Awards for their work, Vaughan and Staples decided to go on a hiatus that was supposed to last about a year, but once the pandemic ensued, their planned hiatus lasted three years.

“I have a post office box where we still get old school mail from and it was mind blowing how many people would waste a stamp just to write to say, ‘Where the hell are you? What’s going on? Give us more Saga. Some people were impatient, but I got it. I was just grateful they hadn’t forgotten about us. And so we’re back, and the response has been tremendous,” Vaughan said.
