Image At 25: What ‘Saga’ Meant To My Relationship

sagaca1

Saga, by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, is one of those comics that seems to have almost universal appeal. I've recommended it to so many friends who have never really tried comics, and the feedback is almost always the same; "Where do I find more?" There's a simplicity to its premise that is powerful, in that the power of love can unite even the worst of foes.

The ‘Saga’ Continues: Catching Up With Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples’ Masterwork [Sci-Fi Week]

saga-feat

When a comic runs for a long while at a consistent level of quality, with a single reliable creative team, it can often slip out of the conversation. When it launched four and a half years ago, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga was the talk of the comics town --- a critical darling and one of the crossover hits that helped make Image Comics what it is today.

With the comic now in its seventh volume and approaching its fortieth issue, I decided to revisit Saga and look at how it has changed, and ask whether it still deserves the kind of attention it enjoyed in those early days.

These ‘Saga’ Action Figures Are The Impossible Made Real [Review]

McFarlane Toys Saga Alana and Marko

We got action figures based on Brian K. Vaughan's and Fiona Staples' Saga. Those are words I never thought I would write. Not that Saga isn't amazing and worthy of a line of toys, but it's a rarity for independent books like this to be immortalized in plastic. It's a lot cheaper to craft and sell pins and t-shirts than it is action figures or even statues (which Saga has now), and the market for toys based on a property like this is often viewed as too small for the effort.

Thankfully, Skybound Entertainment and McFarlane Toys are willing to take risks on properties like Saga. Otherwise we probably never would have gotten such great toys for one of the best comics currently being published.

Give ‘Em Elle: Visualizing Music for Comics

elle11_featured

I love music, and I often find myself thinking about how it relates to comics; which characters would listen to which artists, and so forth. But what's the best way to get around the medium's limitations when it comes to stories about music and musicians? It's a question that's especially relevant to some of my favorite recent titles.

The classic way to visualize music in comics is just to put the lyrics in a word balloon with some musical notes scattered around to convey singing. I’m going to be honest; I hate this approach, and in this day and age, I’m sure I’m not the only one. I find it impossible to read the lyrics as a song instead of a tuneless poem. There are better ways, as seen in books like Jem And The Holograms and Black Canary.
