The Comic-Con panel for Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples’ comic Saga was every bit as charming as you’d expect. The pair talked about the next few issues of the comic, the importance of killing off characters, why Slave Girl is a critique of Slave Leia, and the one Saga moment Fiona Staples initially refused to draw.
"But there was one moment that shocked even Staples. The pair shared that when Staples read the script for issue ten where Lying Cat is sucked into space, she responded for the first time with, "Nope, not drawing that."
I write the book for one person — for Fiona [Staples, the artist]. I spend a lot of time just thinking how she’ll react to things and manipulating her into drawing perverse, horrific things. It’s a really weird job but I enjoy it.
“This is an original fantasy book with no superheroes, two non-white leads and an opening chapter featuring graphic robot sex. I thought we might be cancelled by our third issue.” - Brian K. Vaughan
