Wipe those tears away that you shed from the heartbreaking ending of issue #54 and REJOICE; as there’s some beautiful SAGA news ahead!

Exclusively reported by Entertainment Weekly, all 54 issues of Saga will be collected into one volume this October! Saga: Compendium One , as it’s titled, will be the perfect jumping on point for any new reader as, hold for applause, the series will return for 54 MORE ISSUES! That’s right, we’re only at the halfway point of the series! We knew the year hiatus was only a break but news that the series will continue 54 more issues shows the dedication and love of the creative team. Both Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples expressed their appreciation for the series and it’s fans to Entertainment Weekly with the following quotes-

“Hazel’s family has come a long way since we launched Saga in 2012, and it’s very cool to see that much story all in one volume! We owe our readers massive thanks for getting us to this point, and I couldn’t be more excited for the next leg of the journey.” ~Fiona Staples

“I love Fiona’s new cover, and I’m so proud that these first 54 issues and the last seven years of our work together will be available in one gorgeous and affordable package that you can either binge over a single long vacation, or slowly savor until our series returns. And Fiona and I are excited to finally share with everyone that this compendium represents the first half of our story, a planned 108-issue epic! We’re so grateful to our amazing readers for their support and patience, and we hope this compendium will be the perfect holiday gift to help introduce your loved ones to the continuing adventures of Hazel and her star-crossed family.” ~Brian K. Vaughn

While we’re still waiting on the announcement by Vaughn and Staples as to when the series will officially return, Saga: Compendium One will be hitting BAMF! October 16th!

SHAZAM! Advance Screening with BAMF!

Shazam%21.jpg

BAMF! has your chance to see an advance screening of SHAZAM Monday, March 18th (7:30 pm) at the Regal Cinema in Winter Park! Thanks to Warner Bros. Pictures we have passes available via a download link. Simply visit WBTickets.com and enter the code SHAZAMBAMF to claim your tickets. Pass valid for up to 2 Seat(s) and seats are on a first come basis. Meaning you’ll want to line up early (1 to 2 hours) to better your chances of obtaining a seat.

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
