    Not several years. Not to the same extent as Saga or Lazarus

    Well, Saga took a year off. Planned. Beyond that, there’s a pandemic. It’s delayed a lot of books, changed a lot of plans. Taken a lot of lives, and if you look outside it’s not over. It’s worse.

    Soooooooo... there’s that.

    And look, here’s the thing. Go find the delays on Kirkman books. Go find, easily, what those delays were. It’s hard. Because no one cares. Watchmen had delays. No one cares. Dark Knight Returns has delays. No one cares. When the book is done, sitting on shelves in collected editions, no one will care about the delays. And they’re making something to last. That’s, I’m sure, the intent.

    So yes, it sucks. But shit happens. This year has changed a lot of plans. Roll with it.

    And I appreciate that and agree that it’ll hold up and stand the rest of time. There’s no denying that.

    I was just making a case that it might not have the same heavy attention as it did in the first half

    I hear you on the planned year off but even with the pandemic there has been consistent books out this year. This shouldn't have taken this long. What is most concerning is that no one out there is talking about it. It went from being this Eisner winning title to... nothing.

    Personally, I'll wait and will continue to read when back but I just would like to be re-assured.

    I highly doubt this tbh. If anything, i feel the long wait has only increased the anticipation. I can most definitely see the eventual issue 55 outselling what 54 sold.

    We havnt seen anything from Fiona Staples release in a while (since Archie?) so i can only assume she's been working on Saga for a while now. I think its likely they want a tonne of issues in the can before returning in order to avoid future delays.

    And ultimately, as mentioned, no-body will care in the long run about delays. Just look at Planetary. Months between issues. 3 years between 26 and 27. Still a critical darling and a best selling collection that is regarded as a modern classic.

    Vaughn said back in July they're trying to bank issues so there won't be any delays once it's back.

    Pandemic. Again, we don't know their lives, nor do we need to. They're working on it. They're not abandoning what is easily the most successful book of their careers. Vaughn already knows how it ends, so it's not a GRRM case. I'm pretty sure he said he knows how it ends back in the first issue.

    And when it returns it will absolutely be talked about. No one is talking about it because it isn't coming out. There's not much to talk about.

    I feel like this conversation is just repeating itself. I KNOW they are working on it, and at no point have I said they’re abandoning the book or this a GRRM case etc. I know they plan to return and tell the story they want to.

    My comment, again, is just that a lot of the hyped fans from the first half might not be as invested when it returns. It’s been a long time, is all.

    Issue 54.
    Is that a recap issue or is it just a clear jumping point?

    If memory serves me correctly, that was the last issue before the break.
