“A little bit Romeo & Juliet and a lot Star Wars.” —USA Today
Saga is an epic space opera/fantasy comic book series created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples, published monthly by Image Comics. The series is heavily influenced by Star Wars, and based on ideas Vaughan conceived both as a child and as a parent. It depicts two lovers from long-warring extraterrestrial races, Alana and Marko, fleeing authorities from both sides of a galactic war as they struggle to care for their newborn daughter, Hazel, who occasionally narrates the series. –IMAGE COMICS

HI! My name is Nadya Martinez AKA GothamGeekGirl; I’m a geek journalist, annual comic con attendee, movie loving, cosplayer & comic book enthusiast.
Growing up in NYC I developed a love for the city and art scene. Watching animated cartoons, I grew an obsession with Spiderman and Batman (THAT’S MY HERO!!!) My barbies also preferred action figures over Ken. Originally with fashion in mind, I received my BFA in Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology. However, the late Michael Turner: my biggest influence, really got me into drawing comics. My style fuses both fashion and comic art influences. I am also very inspired by Japanese culture, hence I am learning the language!!
