PORTLAND, Ore. 03/28/2022 — The return story arc of the bestselling, multiple Eisner Award winning series Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples—which generated momentous excitement amongst fans this year—will be collected into trade paperback in this forthcoming Saga Vol. 10. This new installment will collect the single issues #55-60.
This will be the first new trade paperback in the series since Saga, Vol. 9 released in September 2018.
"I know we were gone for a long time, so Fiona Staples and I are extraordinarily grateful to everyone for welcoming us back with such open arms," said Vaughan. "Saga wouldn’t exist without the hard work and dedication of our retailer friends, so if you just can’t wait for this next collection—or are just scared of spoilers—we hope you’ll consider supporting your local comic book shop by checking out our monthly issues, which include a letters column featuring the greatest readers in comics. Either way, Fiona and I are incredibly excited about where Hazel’s story is headed next, and we look forward to telling it together for many years to come.”
At long last, Hazel and her star-crossed family are finally back! But where the hell have they been? The Saga team is proud to return with a more pulse-pounding adventure, heart-wrenching character drama, and gloriously graphic sex and violence, as Saga embarks on its most epic chapter yet.
Saga has sold seven million copies to date across single issue, trade paperback, compendium, hardcover, and digital editions and has been translated into 20 languages. The series also boasts multiple Eisner Awards, Harvey Awards, a Hugo Award, British Fantasy Award, Goodreads Choice Award, Shuster Award, Inkwell Award, Ringo Award, and more. It has been featured in such mainstream media outlets as TIME, Entertainment Weekly, The Atlantic, NPR, and more. The series has become a pop culture phenomenon and has been immortalized with references and easter eggs appearing in such popular TV shows as Supernatural, The Big Bang Theory, The Simpsons, and even a recent Taco Bell commercial featuring the characters dressed in cosplay.

Select praise for Saga:
“A completely addictive, human story.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“While the book works as a poignant love story and an indictment of prejudice, trippy visuals and clever dialog make this Romeo and Juliet space opera a lot of fun as well.” —Library Journal
“Vaughan's whip-snap dialogue is as smart, cutting, and well timed as ever… [Staples’] character designs dish out some of the best aliens around, the immersive world-crafting is lushly detailed and deeply thought through, and the spacious layouts keep the focus squarely on the personal element, despite the chaotic cosmos they inhabit.” —Booklist (starred review)
“The kind of comic that you get when truly talented superstar creators are given the freedom to produce their dream comic…Saga is Heavy Metal eclecticism synthesized into a singular, sprawling narrative à la Cerberus or The Walking Dead—a vast sandbox built for never ending castle-building.” —Entertainment Weekly
“An unwieldy, profane, and glorious ode to compassion and equality… a sprawling tale that shuffles the beats of numerous genres, including pulp romance, road trip, Western, dark comedy, and political thriller.” —The Atlantic
“There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who are reading Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples amazing adult sci fi/fantasy Image comic Saga, and those who haven’t yet. The former people are leading happier, fuller lives, because Saga is amaaaaaazzzing.” —io9/Gizmodo
“Saga is the space fantasy comic of our times.” —BookRiot
“The humanity that BKV imbues on his characters is rich and relatable, and the danger that surrounds them is fierce and ever present.” —IGN
