Oh hey there, gals, guys, and otherwise! Welcome to HORNS & WINGS, a weekly love letter to the greatest comic in the whole danged galaxy: Saga.
Read along with Noah (Polyphonic) and John (Make Stuff) as they break down every brilliant detail in the series, issue-by-issue. Whether you picked up issue #1 on launch day or yesterday, WHO CARES. This thing's a celebration and exploration for ALL the fans (and a fantastic way to finally jump into the series, too, nudge nudge).
So stop reading this intro and start listening to us talk about space sex and junk, thanks.

Great companion to my second read thru
I ran out of new saga to read a long time ago, but this podcast inspired me to re-read the whole thing from the beginning. I like to read a whole volume over the weekend (it’s hard to put one down once you start), and listen to this podcast during the week to ponder each issue and to point out some neat things I might have missed.
While spoilers wouldn’t hurt me, I appreciate the effort to limit the podcast to one issue at a time, it helps take me back to my first read when each moment was new and each reveal was a shock.
Am I Farding?!
Great listen but why spoil?
Great podcast as a companion piece as I read through the series. Even though they say they won’t spoil anything that’s to come, they spoil or nod to EVERY little thing that will come up in future issues.
In every episode I’ve listened to there is a really good deep dive on the themes and events of each issue but it’s immediately shot in the foot by how much *hint-hint, wink-wink, this is important* that goes on in EVERY. Episode.
Again, really nice to hear after each issue or in large groups. With 54 issues left to go, I’m sure the spoilers will eventually fade.
Edit: listened to the latest episode. You guys are hilarious and even though you do make it painfully obvious when a callback is being set up, you do have a great flow/pace to the episodes.
Even after my 2nd read I’m still entertained so you earned it!
I don't have any IRL saga friends - so excited to nerd out about my favorite comic with these guys!!!!!!
