    I probably wouldn't have noticed those images on the little screen had there not been a controversy that delayed my ability to purchase the issue on Comixology. The images themselves didn't bother me. The giant baby with elephantitis a few issues back was much more jarring.

    When I first read the issue with the giant baby, I missed out on that. But I went back and read it last week and noticed it for the first time. I love this series.

    It kinda decreased my interest in series.
    I've read Saga from the beginning and there is a slight quality change in the last few issues.
    Whoring for controversy didn't do it any good either.

    To be honest, I'm trade-waiting this book anyway (I've got the first trade, like pretty much everyone else) but this controversy hasn't changed my stance on the comic. And like some others, I probably wouldn't have noticed the images anyway.

    Nope, it just reminded me of why I don't care for the series.

    Loved it before, love it now, don't see how this attention was brought about by anybody other than Comixology, so no.
    Currently enjoying: Batman, Detective Comics, American Vampire, Saga, The Wake, Letter 44, The Manhattan Projects, Atomic Robo, East of West, Ghosted, FBP...

    Read the first trade of Saga and wasn't impressed. I find it's "shock-value" stuff to be more annoying than anything.

    I have been meaning to knock this book off my list but kept forgetting to do it until this issue. The issues content has nothing to due with my decision so much as the writing. Other than Pride Of Baghdad I don't enjoy Vaughn's work very much. His Y book seemed to have to many annoying movie line quotes from what I remember. His voice is just not for me. I've been getting it for Staples work but since she went digital I feel less interest there also.

    I've got to ask the people dropping the title over the sexual images: is it because of a religion or moral stance?

    I had no idea there was controversy surrounding this until I read the OP. Oh well. Didn't affect my interest, obviously. :-)

    I'm not religious; I'm not bothered by comics with half clothed people (the recent Thor for example) or playful sexual innuendo or mature looks at relationships and the suggestion of sex… so I don’t know that I’m highly moral. I do know that I’m not interested in pornography, and don’t want it in my comics. I don’t need graphic depictions of oral sex, or scenes of ejaculations. I disliked the Pro (in part) because of that as well. I'm not sure that I can specify why that is... just a matter of personal taste? In movies I don’t watch torture porn, it’s not a moral thing so much as a ‘not interested in it’ thing. Heck, maybe it's because I'm old, a relic from a different time, set in my ways. There's a line, and Saga crosses it.

    Not at all. I have little interest in the series. I read the first trade and thought it was overrated. I may give it another read down the line sometime, but when has yet to be determined. I still think a lot of people would have missed those images anyway.
