‘Saga’ co-creator Brian K. Vaughan has signed a three-year deal with Legendary Entertainment. ‘Saga’ ADAPTATION GET?!
Yo! Fucking rad, my dudes. Brian K. Vaughan has signed a three-year deal with Legendary Entertainment. Not only that, but he’ll also be adapting some of his creator-owned titles as part of the deal.
Saga, dope-ass comic book and brainchild of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples is taking a year off. This is fantastic, because it allows me to catch-up on the title. However, it would be fantastic even if I was. If the two of them feel the creative juices ebbing, I would rather they take a spot to recharge.
It sounds an awful lot like Fox is trying to get as many Marvel projects off the ground, all the while selling their Marvel properties to Marvel Studios. I don’t know why they’re doing this, but I do imagine that not many of them (if any) are actually going to see the light of day, once Marvel Studios finishes acquiring said properties. But! Brian K. Vaughan is pretty cool.
How about some Runaways live-action adaptation? I haven’t read the series in forever, but I distinctly remember fucking loving it back in the day.
Before there was Saga, Brian K. Vaughan was most known for the fantastic Y: The Last Man. And while adaptations (both film, and television) have been kicked around, it appears that it’s finally happening! Really happening!
Hell to the Robot Fucking Yes. This past weekend Saga Vol. 1 won the Hugo award for Best Graphic Story. Vaughan and Staples have continually delivered my favorite title of the month every time it drops, and it is delicious to see them getting rewarded for their excellence. I’m not saying it is the ideal way for them to get rewarded, though. In my mind, they come over to my house. I’m wearing nothing but a bikini made out of Jell-O. I serve them dinner (pasta and meat balls, obviously) while complimenting them on their wonderful title. After dinner we play Jenga, pausing briefly for neck messages that I dole out with extreme aplomb. They leave, really knowing that they’re appreciated.
But this is nice too.
Hnng. Fiona Staples artwork is lovely. Dare I say, nonpareil? I just wanted to use that word. Probably incorrectly, too. So uh whatever. Anyways! There is an article in Time Magazine about Saga, and the brilliant Staples cut a little bit of awesome artwork for the commemoration.
It’s totally the berries.

I’m with Brian K. Vaughan in thinking that digital distribution may be the best thing to happen to mainstream comics. However, it may also have been what plunged me into comic book-ennui for the first half of this year.
Apple bans ‘SAGA’ #12 from comiXology because of gay sex, Brian K. Vaughan is all “we ain’t compromising anything.”
There is a storm coming, Annie! Grab Jar Jar Binks, and get your ass inside. Apple has banned the sale of Saga #12 from the comiXology app in their store, igniting an understandable uproar. Despite other issues having rather gratuitous rotting testicles and the such, this is the first issue of Saga to receive the ban. Most people are explaining the discrepancy by pointing out the fact that this issue of Saga depicts *gasp* gay sex. Oh boy.
No less than nineteen websites and our own Johnny Hotsauce kicked this across my plate yesterday, and yet I didn’t cover it. Hey man, I was shoveling. Don’t blame me, blame the weather. And general fatigue. Whatever, I know, I know, I suck. Anyways, Vaughan and Martin’s newest collaboration is awesome.
