Image Comics has announced that Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples' Saga: Compendium One is arriving in comic book stores tomorrow, August 21. The trade paperback was originally slated for a September release.
The 1,200-page collected edition features the first nine volumes of the critically acclaimed series.
"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!" Vaughan said in April. "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."
Saga centers on Alana and Marko, a married couple who hail from opposite sides of an intergalactic war. The pair, along with their young daughter Hazel, are on the run from the armies of their home worlds as their marriage is considered an embarrassment to both races.
Saga: Compendium One, by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, goes on sale Aug. 21 from Image Comics.
