Awesome writer and fan Imogen Binnie got us all geektastic when she pointed out this genius match-up.  And it’s basically undeniable.  Not only does Mr. Heist, Fiona Staples and Brian K.

Both Mr. Heist and our (cyclops-deprived) universe’s own Sam Delany are masters of ideas, using the “low brow” genres to examines big ideas about social justice. And…

And just when you thought it was impossible to fan-crush on Saga any harder. Oh yeah, did we mention issue #15 is out this week?

Bam.
