Given the commercial and critical success of Saga, the space opera from Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, it seems likely the Image Comics series has been eyed by more than a few film and television producers. However, the writer says he would be more interested in a video-game adaptation.
"That's actually something that has come up," he told The Verge. "A Saga video game, particularly if it's sort of about characters other than the main characters in our story, is really exciting to me — even more exciting than a film or TV show. So, uh, never say never."
A video game might be an unconventional choice for a story about two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war who fall in love, becoming fugitives as they flee with their newborn daughter from mercenaries, journalists and an ex-fiancée. However, Vaughan later brings up Telltale Games, which has found an audience with episodic role-playing adventure games based on The Walking Dead and Fables (another, based on Game of Thrones, recently debuted).
"I love those Telltale games that I've seen," he said. "It's very clever. I like that it's based on making moral decisions, it's not just a button-masher kind of game."
