  1. Merciful Buddha, this was so good It s so good I wish I hadn t started reading it so soon Now I have to wait for the next book to come out I hate it when I have to wait the next book in a series to come out Don t you hate it when you have to wait for the next book in a series to come out

  2. THIS WAS SO GOOD I held off on buying the rest of the series before I started because I wanted to make sure I liked it, and now I m so frustrated I can t continue IMMEDIATELY The art, the characters, the tone, THE STORY I M LOVING IT ALLRE PLEASE NOW THANK YOU.

  3. this question is a reaction to the sight of this but it could be asked in response to seeing many of the other creatures appearing in this story s got unicorn peopletorsoless sex workersteevee head peopleseahorse peopleand thisthe story centers around a second timeless question why, these two assholes, that s who these incredibly attractive characters are supposed to hate each other, due to the longstanding war between their respective peoples, but they fall in love in that romantical star cross [...]

  4. Woah I mean, woah There are so many things to love about this comic The plot, the atmosphere, the characters, the action, the magic those things oh my What I ve seen so far impressed me, grandly, and if it weren t because I highly wanted to review this book right away, I would be right this moment halfway through the second volume Goddamn cliffhanger Loved it.Now, this comic is composed of so many elements that I never dreamed I would one day come to mightily admire, such as monsters, weird chim [...]

  5. There s an awful lot of crap in the graphic novel world, but it s strangely wonderful little gems like Saga, Vol 1 that make rummaging through the rest of it feel completely worth the effort This first volume is a bizarre, imaginative and very funny beginning to what I m hoping will be a fantastic series I ve read bits here and there of Vaughan s work in the past but this is the first one to make me need to see what else he has in store for us I honestly have no idea how he comes up with this st [...]

  6. Some of the elements in Saga 1 Star crossed lovers who were soldiers in opposing armies of an intersteller war who have a baby and are being hunted by both sides 2 A royal family comprised of humanistic robots with TVs for heads.3 Magic4 Ghosts.5 A bounty hunter with a giant cat that acts as a lie detector.6 A forest that grows wooden rocketshipsAnd that s just the start.I m a huge fan of Vaughan s Y The Last Man and Ex Machina so no surprise that I loved this What is surprising is just how bat [...]

  10. So Saga, right I was starting to feel like the only person in the universe who hadn t read Vaughan s supposedly fantastic title But I don t generally go for the weird shit Especially if they don t wear spandex And I knew if I hated this, the comic book mafia would be coming for me.I m a big enough person that I can admit that I was really really a little scared of my fellow nerdlings being disappointed in me.However, unlike my fear of giant soul sucking spiders, this fear turned out to be foolis [...]

  11. Mind blowing material This collected volume features issues 1 6 from the comic book series Saga.Creative Team Writer Brian K VaughanIllustrator Fiona StaplesGOT SAGA My name is Hazel I started out as an idea, but I ended up something Not much , to be honest It s not like I grow up to become some great war hero or any sort of all important savior but thanks to these two her parents , at least I get to grow old Not everybody does.I had heard many positive things about Saga and noticing that the t [...]

  12. How to describe Saga It s like someone took Firefly, coated it liberally in WTF, and sprinkled a little Quentin Tarantino on top Yeah, it s some wonderfully messed up stuff.The planet Landfall is at war with one of its moons, known as Wreath The indigenous people of Landfall seem reliant on technology and sport some nifty little insect like wings, while the people of Wreath have horns they may be my favorites as each character in the later issues has horns varying from rhino, to antelope, to ox [...]

  13. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsBefore anything else, it must be said that SAGA is the most beautiful and hideous, the most hopeful and fatalistic, the most graphic, and the most adorable thing I have ever read or seen.It is ALL the things The very first page of the very first chapter sets the tone for the whole series thus far You re slapped in the face with the wonder and the ICK of childbirth Some of you might think the bodily fluids, the wordless, guttural shouts that accompany the pushing, and the m [...]

  14. This is what I get for marrying a vegetarian Even the goddamn PLANTS want us dead Listen, I understand that this is a media darling.But I find it very hard to enjoy stories books comics tv movies where the world that is featured and spent time in is a world where it s completely normal to enslave six year old girls for prostitution, people talk about murdering other people children, and infants as if it ain t no thing, torture, rape, and woman hating are everyday and commonplace.You could say, O [...]

  15. Saga is so strange, so beautifully strange I absolutely love it I read this first volume straight through and I spent most of the time laughing at the sheer weirdness of the characters and the situations they found themselves in.The strength of the story relies on the sheer energy of the action it is non stop and utterly relentless as our two protagonists fight to save their daughter in a world at war The dialogue is oozing with past mysteries and secrets that are crying to be revealed I feel li [...]

  16. Compelling characters and world building Sometimes the dialogue is just off and offensive but not in a charming way.

  20. When I first picked this up on recommendation from a friend, I was worried that it might be a bit too Out there for me However, I was pleasantly surprised at just how emotion packed and beautiful this really is.The first installment of Saga tells the beginnings of a girl named Hazel Violence, lack of understanding, and new parents taking on opposition everything in this read will leave you NEEDING to know what is going to happen next.What did I think I m not a big comic reader but I couldn t put [...]

  21. YO YO YO YO Buying the rest of the series PRONTO I read this on the subway and was happy when I got lost because it led to an extra 40 minutes of reading time SO DAMN ADDICTIVE.

  22. Sooooo, I finally jumped on the Saga wagon I have had the first two volumes sitting on my shelf and I was 99.999999999% sure I was gonna love it and I did Of course, now I m saying, Why did you wait so long and all that.Everybody has already read and reviewed this People who don t read graphic novels have read this So, I can t really say much that hasn t already been said I ll just say that it has a trope I like the star crossed lovers Alana and Marko s peoples have been warring since forever Th [...]

  23. Marko and Alana, soldiers from opposite sides of an interplanetary war, have a child together and go on the run Hilarity and awesomeness ensue.Yeah, I m really late to the party on this but Saga is pretty fucking great It s part space opera, part relationship drama, with lots of laughs and inventive aliens thrown into the mix Tired of the same old aliens How about aliens with TVs for heads, aliens with horns, aliens with wings, and humanoid alien spiders There s also magic and spacecraft made ou [...]

  24. This was seriously so enjoyable The art was beautiful and the story was so compelling I don t read a ton of graphic novels but this is the one that has kept me hooked the most BY FAR.The world building was interesting, though not totally explained, but I feel like of that is coming in later volumes I can t wait to see where it goes from here

  25. Breast feeding on the cover of a graphic novel These are the two opening pages view spoiler Click the images to enlarge hide spoiler How could you not want to continue reading I had an inkling I had something special in my hands and I definitely wasn t disappointed The humor is Ilona Andrews esque, the story and characters are incredibly compelling, and the artwork is stunning I preordered Saga, Vol 2 before I was even finished reading This graphic novel blends romance, science fiction, space op [...]

  26. Some people say that graphic novels aren t a legitimate form of great literatureI say that those people have clearly never readSaga The planet of Landfall is at war with the moon of Wreath, and the conflict has managed to engulf the entire galaxy, with combatants from multiple worlds choosing sides to fight on In a time filled with hatred and violence, two soldiers from opposite sides manage to find love and solace in each other After the birth of their infant daughter, Private First Class Alana [...]
