Saga, Volume 1 by Brian Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Saga, Volume 1 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

What can I add to what everyone else has written? Nothing. This was awesome! That is all.

 

I posted this yesterday. It posted to Facebook and Twitter, but did not post here. I tried to post it again today. Nothing. Now I'm just creating an entire new post only because I'm so excited about how good this graphic novel was. 

 

This site is getting on my nerves.

#7 - Saga (#6) by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples
Saga, Volume 6 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

This was another amazing volume of Saga. I do read them in French because it is easier and cheaper to get them that way, but I don’t think it makes a big difference. Anyway, I really enjoyed reading about Hazel and her family again.

 

I bought this one last year and still had not read it. It’s been a while since I’ve read Saga, but in spite of that, it was still easy to follow and it took me only a couple of minutes to get back into it

 

We again meet a lot of new characters and they are all so unique, I don’t understand how they can create so many different characters that remind me of nothing I’ve already seen. They really are unique. And the art is PERFECT.

 

Another thing I love about Saga is how honest it is. You see the story through the eyes of a child but not an innocent or stupid one (like most children are, really, we do not give them enough credit!), Hazel is honest and understand a lot more than what people think.

 

I can’t wait to read the next one, this graphic novel is really one of the best I have ever read and it keeps getting better and better.

Saga, Vol 8
Saga Volume 8 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

OK, I love this series, but it is so hard to only get one volume a year. Seriously.

 

Also, I feel like the story has stalled a little bit. This volume was good, but where is it taking me? I love the characters, but it feels like they've been wandering in space for a while now without much purpose. Let's get this story going.

Saga Vol. 1
Saga, Volume 1 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

Why do I always wait so long to read the best things and instead read so many of the not-so-great things? Saga Volume 1 is one of the best things. The artwork is beautiful, the dialogue is snarky, the characters are stunningly gorgeous and it is jam packed with action, blood-shed and weird imagery. There is nothing not to love here in this beautifully unhinged space opera. Nothing!

Marko and Alana are warriors who are not supposed to be together. They are from different worlds that are at war with one another. Alana was supposed to be guarding Marko but instead they fell in love and ran off together. The story opens as Alana’s giving birth to their daughter who narrates the story. It’s gory and it’s earthy and super funny. The two species shouldn’t be able to breed but together they create a bewinged, behorned beautiful baby girl and their enemies want her baaaad and pay some frightful freelancers to track them down. 

The artwork is something else. There is a freelancer who is absolutely terrifying. I wish I had never seen what she hides beneath her voluminous skirt because I cannot get that image out of my head. And the lying cat is a thing of beauty. Who wouldn’t want to have such a beast as a companion?! But it’s the writing that makes it all work. The characters, even the villains, all have their own POV and little story vignettes on their journey to capture our young lovers and they aren’t completely horrible people. I love that. Alana and Marko’s back and forth is another of the great things about this installment. Alana is by far the stronger personality of the two, while he’s pretty sweet natured and easy going and together they’re so damn perfect it almost makes me weep. 

I just bought volume 2 brand spanking new immediately after finishing this one and moments after I said I would buy no more physical books until I finished up a few. Yeah, maybe that lying cat wouldn’t be such a good idea for me after all. . .


Isn't it lovely though?!
