"Y: The Last Man" and "Ex Machina" creator Brian K. Vaughan discusses the finer points of "Saga," his and artist Fiona Staples' hit Image Comics series. Plus, an

Brian K. Vaughan plans to top himself with "Saga," his latest creator-owned comic from Image Comics. The writer not only has designs on making the series span the cosmos, but also plans to write more issues of this comic than his previous long-form original efforts like "Ex Machina" and "Y: The Last Man." Also, unlike those other books, he plans on telling the entire epic "Saga" with one artist, his partner and co-creator, Fiona Staples.


For those unfamiliar with the series, it follows the adventures of Marko and Alana, lovers from opposite sides of a space war who just had a baby named Hazel who happens to narrate the story. With the sixth issue of the acclaimed series out this week, Vaughan and Staples have already tackled everything from an on-page birth, disemboweled ghost children, a guild of assassins, a cat who can tell if you're lying, a TV-headed robot monarchy and plenty of other wild ideas.

The series will take a brief hiatus after the sixth issue which will give new readers time to pick up the trade when it goes on sale October 10, but fear not -- the duo will reunite in November for more "Saga." CBR News spoke with Vaughan about the series thus far, its roots in his childhood imagination, and his honest representation of parenthood.

Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' space opera "Saga" continues with #6, on sale now. The first trade paperback will be released October 10th, with "Saga" #7 on sale in November.
