Bestselling, Multiple Award Winning Saga Series Kicks Off New Story Arc This July

sagaThe bestselling, multiple Eisner Award winning series Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples will kick off a new story arc this July. The highly anticipated twelfth chapter in the ongoing space opera will launch from Image Comics with Saga #67.

In this exciting new installment, Saga readers will follow 12-year-old Hazel as she embarks on the most important adventure of her young life.

“A lot of comic characters remain frozen in time, but Fiona and I wanted to tell a story where characters would age, change and evolve over the years, as would our series,” said Vaughan. “We’re especially excited to show readers where 12-year-old Hazel and her family are headed next, and we hope readers will continue to support their local retailers by following our heroes’ adventure in ‘real time’ with these new issues, my favorites yet.”

Saga #67 (Lunar Code 0524IM246) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, July 31.

Saga has sold nearly 10 million copies to date across single issue, trade paperback, compendium, hardcover, and digital editions, has been translated into 20 languages, and is considered by many to be the gold standard of creator-owned comics and the best ongoing series of the 21st Century. The series also boasts multiple Eisner Awards, Harvey Awards, a Hugo Award, British Fantasy Award, Goodreads Choice Award, Shuster Award, Inkwell Award, Ringo Award, and more. It has been featured in such mainstream media outlets as TIME, Entertainment Weekly, The Atlantic, NPR, and more. The series has become a pop culture phenomenon and has been immortalized with references and easter eggs appearing in such popular TV shows as Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons, and even a recent Taco Bell commercial featuring the characters dressed in cosplay.

The new Saga, Vol. 1 paperback 6×9 trim size edition (ISBN: 9781534370548, Lunar Code 0724IM310) will be available at local comic book shops on Wednesday, September 11 and independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Indigo, and Waterstones on Tuesday, September 24.

Saga is also available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, Google Play, and Omnibus.
