Saga Gets New Trim Paperback Edition From Image Comics:

Saga is one of the few breakaway hits of the modern comics era. A perennial store bestseller, and something that drives sales in both comic book stores and book stores. And now Image Comics will be releasing a new edition of the book by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, with previously unseen art by Staples used for the cover.

The new editions of the book will be a trim 6″ by 9″ paperback size, versus the enormous by comparison 6″ by 10″ paperback size that’s been available for over a decade. I’m being sarcastic about the size, by the way.

Said Vaughan via his weekly newsletter: “How cool is it to see Fiona revisiting our heroes at the beginning of their journey? While we’re hard at work on new chapters of Saga, we hope these lovely editions from Image will help introduce a whole new audience to the ongoing adventures of Hazel and her star-crossed family.”  

While the first volume of this new printing of Saga will be available in stores on September 10, all previous versions of the book including hardcover, softcover, and digital will also be available. Meaning you can own the same story, like, 30 different times. No price point has been shared at this time for the new editions, though the previous gargantuan 10″ paperbacks are usually $9.99.

Kingpin Gets Powers In Giant-Size Daredevil #1:

Marvel’s Giant-Size line of books has been promising some big changes for their top-tier characters. And at least when it comes to Giant-Size Daredevil #1, it looks like the line will pay off on that promise, as the Kingpin of Crime will get powered up.

Written by Saladin Ahmed with art by Paul Davidson, the title will tie into the current ongoing Daredevil series, and find the seven deadly sins that have been haunting Matt Murdock granting Wilson Fisk some sort of unstoppable powers.

Said Ahmed via press release: “I’ve always loved villain POV stories, and Wilson Fisk has the ultimate street level villain POV! We went really big and bloody with this, bringing KINGPIN back in a huge way, and I can’t wait for fans to check it out.”

The new issue will feature a cover by Bryan Hitch, and a reprint of Frank Miller’s classic Daredevil #170. It will hit stores on June 12.

Snarf Joins ThunderCats:

Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is almost here: Snarf arrives in Dynamite’s ThunderCats #3.

Written by Declan Shalvey with art by Drew Moss, ThunderCats has been an enormous hit. The first issue sold over 180,000 copies. The second issue, which introduced a new character named Calica, sold 82,000 copies. If that trend continues, this third issue which introduces Snarf should sell somewhere around negative 20,000 copies.

Just kidding, I’m sure it’ll do fine. Particularly as Dynamite is teasing that the intro of Lion-O’s pet friend, who only says “snarf,” will come with some surprises and twists. Will the lovable Snarf be working for villain Mumm-Ra? Perhaps he’s secretly Garfield, or some other celebrity cat?

We’ll know more when ThunderCats #3 hits stores on April 10.

For Comic Book Club News, I’m Alex Zalben. Snarf. That’s all I got.
