The cover to Saga’s first hardcover collection. And some quotes from the creators on just why they decided to give comic book retailers across the country a few more grey hairs after the cover of the series’ first issue and tpb got them so much flak:

Just fabulous, really. <3

"Hand" by David Lloyd from AARGH! (Artists Against Rampant Government Homophobia), published by Mad Love, October 1988.
“They have crappy jobs, bad apartments with terrible roommates who have even more terrible boyfriends, and almost no money. What they do have is each other, and the creativity that comes with their presumed liberal arts degrees to embrace whatever situation they find themselves in. It’s far more entertaining—and, let’s be honest, realistic—than most recent television and film portrayals of young women. They’re not obsessed with jumpstarting their confusingly trendy cupcake business, like on Two Broke Girls, or trying to get/stay famous in a glamorous big city like on pretty much every reality show. Their lives kind of suck, and they need to do something to distract themselves. Every day.”-Stephanie Butnick, Tablet Magazin
