I found it extremely difficult to find information specifically talking about counterculture in comics, let along counterculture in Image comics. I think among the literature people might not really write about the topic since comics themselves have grown up in America from a place of counterculture. I varied my search techniques from using “counterculture” to searching for “feminism” and “graphic novels” and that brought me some sources. A lot of sources I’m finding are simply reviews of Saga saying that it’s controversial and that it is successful and catchy. The librarian who came to class today provided a lot of interesting links in the handout, so I’m hopeful that they will lead me to some more information. In my research to come, I plan to look at graphic novels with respect to representations of the family, since in Saga the plot is centered around a new family, and I feel like a family journey as the main focus/protagonist is generally rare in comics.
