NEW SAGA ARC KICKS OFF WITH 25¢ ISSUE
TO CELEBRATE 25 YEARS OF IMAGE COMICS
Limited edition Image 25th anniversary prints by
Fiona Staples also available
Image Comics is pleased to announce that the full-length 43rd issue of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ multiple Eisner Award-winning series SAGA will be priced at $0.25 in celebration of Image’s 25th anniversary. In addition to this collectible $0.25 issue, limited quantities of a commemorative Image 25th anniversary print featuring exclusive and all-new SAGA artwork by co-creator Fiona Staples may also be available. Contact your local comic shop for more details.
A perfect jumping-on point for new readers, SAGA #43 sees Hazel and her star-crossed parents embarking on a thrilling new adventure at the westernmost edge of the universe.
“I am so proud of this issue, and excited for our craziest storyline yet!” said Vaughan. “Fiona and I wanted to thank our incredible readers for five years of loyalty with this special $0.25 issue, but we also hoped to encourage anyone who hasn’t yet read SAGA to finally dip their toes in our water (eww).
“So if you have ‘mature’ friends or loved ones you think might be weird enough to enjoy our series, why not pick up a few extra copies to share with them?” asked Vaughan. “Either way, we know our beloved retailing partners won’t profit as much as they would from our regular $2.99 cover price, so if we save you a few bucks in May, we hope you’ll please consider shifting a little of that money back to your local store by trying PAPER GIRLS or THE OLD GUARD or STRAY BULLETS or any of the other spectacular collection of creator-owned comics that our friends at Image have been publishing for an unbelievable 25 years.”
SAGA #43 (Diamond code: MAR170720) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, May 31st. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 1st.
LIMITED EDITION IMAGE 25TH ANNIVERSARY PRINTS: color version, B&W version, and signed color version, will also be available in limited quantities on Wednesday, May 31st.
