Saga, the hit Image comic by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples, will be coming to an end. If course, we already knew that, but now we know exactly when. Entertainment Weekly scored an EX-X-XCLUSIVE cover reveal for Saga: Compendium One, the massive tome which collects issue #1-54 of the fan-favorite series, currently on hiatus. In their article, however, EW also revealed that the current hiatus is actually the exact midway point of the series, meaning there will be just another 54 issues of Saga once it returns, for a grand total of 108 issues.
Said Brian K. Vaughan:
I love Fiona's new cover, and I'm so proud that these first 54 issues and the last seven years of our work together will be available in one gorgeous and affordable package that you can either binge over a single long vacation, or slowly savor until our series returns. And Fiona and I are excited to finally share with everyone that this compendium represents the first half of our story, a planned 108-issue epic! We're so grateful to our amazing readers for their support and patience, and we hope this compendium will be the perfect holiday gift to help introduce your loved ones to the continuing adventures of Hazel and her star-crossed family.
And of course, you probably want to see the cover too, right?
