I am a bit out of the loop.  What is happening?

They are taking a year break. That was around the end of July. So we are about 4 months in. I would think around the 6-8 month mark would be the lowest. Assuming they start to talk about it coming back around the 8-10 month mark.

"At least a year".

If you're going to quote something, you should probably get it right:

"... for at least the next year. "

Maybe the phrasing in this article will better satisfy your inner pedant:

Umm, it's the exact same quote.

My quote comes from the article which paraphrased BKV.

That's all I have to say on the matter.

a year break is a great way to kill a comic.

Agreed. Just hope they actually come back to it. Great series.

Saga doesn't have an issue with a giant butt on the cover that I'm aware of...

They start gaining interest again after 17 years. The Rule of 17. Everyone knows about the Rule of 17.

This one surprised me. I picked up a run of 1-7 including the "butt cover" for $1 a pop at HPB, on a whim. I almost didn't even pick them up at that price. Was amazed at what they sold for. Definitely won't pass them up again.

Well MAD (Joe Madureira)  was very popular in the 90's with his anime style X-men. I'm guessing Battles Chaser's popularity is being fueled by nostalgia....

I think MAD is trying to return back to comics when his video games route went bust.....

I still remember bidding on a full set of Battle Chasers #1 CGC SS 9.8-9.6 about 10 yrs ago. I believe there were 4 covers and I won (CND$100)

As predicted, Saga #1 is going down.

Interesting as I like reading Saga..very interesting and a bit strange but the first several issues were very enjoyable to me.

Good to know..Thanks!

Agreed - over the last few months, I binged the entire series digitally after some really good Comixology sales. I may buy a Saga #1 9.8 for long-term if I can find a good price / motivated seller over the next year while it's on hiatus.
