ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 79: SAGA by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

SAGA has been described as STAR WARS meets GAME OF THRONES, which is a pretty amazing comparison considering those are two of the biggest franchises of the last 50 years–Thank goodness they didn’t put LORD OF THE RINGS in there too. However, I have to say that the story of Alana and Marko’s struggle to protect their forbidden child and love as they run across the galaxy is more than up to the challenge.

READ: Want to know more about SAGA? Check out our analysis of diversity in the most recent arc! 

Told from the future in voiceover by Alana and Marko’s child Hazel, SAGA is the story of Alana and Marko’s struggle to protect their daughter from a world that wants to rip them apart. Why do they want to rip them apart? Because Alana is from a Landfall, a planet where the people have wings, and Marko is from Wreath, a moon of Landfall where the people have horns. These two people have been at war since anyone can remember. So long that the rest of the universe has even gotten involved and taken sides.

LISTEN: Want more Ms. Jamie Rice hosted podcasts? Check out the first time she hosted with BITCH PLANET!

There are more creatures than I can name in this short post, but SAGA is more than just fantastical and beautiful creatures rendered gorgeously by Fiona Staples. SAGA is an epic story about the ways that cultures and prejudices clash. It is a story about the lengths that people will go to to protect their families. It is a story about pregnancy and the unexpected and pointless nature of death. SAGA is a story about life itself and what it truly means to live. In this podcast with guests Pete Imbesi, Matthew Murphy, Brad Sloan, and Phil Casey we discuss all this and more. So sit back and relax while ComicsVerse discusses Brian K. Vaughan’s and Fiona Staples’ epic space opera, SAGA.

Comics Alternative Interviews: Brian K. Vaughan

BKV Is in the House

BKVThe guys are pleased to have on their podcast the great Brian K. Vaughan. And for this conversation, Derek and Andy K. are joined by Andy Wolverton, who actually secured this interview for the show through his library connections. The guys begin by asking Brian about his thematic ambitions in Saga, and the discussion evolves from there. Over the course of their conversation, they ask their guest about the origins of the award-winning series, his melding of the sci-fi and fantasy genres, the challenges of juggling more than one ongoing title at a time, the stories behind the artists he chooses to work with, the pay-what-you-will philosophy behind The Private Eye, the future of Panel Syndicate, his loyal (and enthusiastic) fan base, the ever-evolving nature of comic conventions, and (as much as Brian can reveal) his new series that were recently announced at the Image Expo. Along the way they discuss not only his current titles, but also Brian’s ever-popular Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina, Swamp Thing, The Runaways, and The Pride of Baghdad. This is an exciting interview for the guys, and it’s a sign of the many great guests they will have on The Comics Alternative in the coming year.

Freddy, the Recommender

Collected

Derek is back at his local shop, Collected Comics in Plano, TX, to discuss comics with the folks who frequent their aisles. Joining him this month are the assistant store manager, Freddy Ruiz, and loyal Collected customer and good friend of the shop, Laura Rogers. Together they cover a variety of topics and titles — from Garth Ennis’s violence to Brian K. Vaughn’s imagination, from individual buying habits to customer trends, from Star Wars to Big Trouble in Little China — and have a fun time doing so. They’re even joined by store employee Sabrina Smith, who is usually gun-shy when it comes to a podcasting microphone. She shares her experience with various disturbing comics, including the upcoming Itty Bitty Bunnies In Rainbow Pixie Candy Land. So sit back, get out your comic-book wish list, and join everyone at Collected in their audio romp through current comics-dom.
