Quote of the Day | Brian K. Vaughan’s mom reviews Saga #1

From "Saga" #1, by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

“My mother read the first issue, and her review was, ‘Well, I made it through the whole thing.’ My poor beleaguered Catholic mom would just like me to write nice stories for children, but she’s always very supportive.”

Saga writer Brian K. Vaughan, responding to a question about the sensibility of the Image Comics space opera, which features humanoids with television sets for heads, a ghost girl with dangling intestines and a pleasure planet named Sextillion



As one of the six people in the world who isn’t into Saga for the same reasons his mother isn’t, I have to agree. I would love to see BKV try his hand at kids’ comics at some point, since I still think Saga could have been an amazing all ages comic.

Also, I don’t believe that Vaughan is Catholic. He always uses Jewish characters and does such a great job that he must be one of us. (Actually, I don’t believe he even exists. I’ve seen his photos. He’s Grant Morrison.)

BKV has already done a kids comic. It was called Runaways. It was fantastic.
