Should Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ epic series, "Saga," ever find itself in another medium, it would most likely be video games.
At the very least, it’s the platform that series writer Vaughan is most on-board with. During a interview last week, Vaughan discussed the possibility of bringing the world that his science fiction odyssey resides in to video game consoles. And from the sounds of it, Vaughan is pretty receptive to the idea.
"That's actually something that has come up," Vaughan said in his discussion with The Verge. "A Saga video game, particularly if it's sort of about characters other than the main characters in our story, is really exciting to me — even more exciting than a film or TV show. So, uh, never say never.”
If done, Saga's video game spin-off wouldn’t be the first of its kind. The Walking Dead franchise currently has a separate video game storyline featuring an entirely separate cast of characters. Developed by Telltale Games, the game series is broken into small, playable chapters that are then collected as “seasons.”
Saga, published by Image Comics, is Vaughan’s sweeping science fiction series about two star-crossed lovers who must evade their warring home planets. Currently on its 24th issue, the series has won multiple Eisner Awards, including Best Continuing Series, Best Writer (Vaughan), and Best Interior Painter/Multimedia Artist (Staples).
