    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?

    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 ALL.MORE PLEASE NOW THANK YOU.

    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.it's got unicorn people torsoless sex workers teevee-head people seahorse people and … this the 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 respe...

    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 w...

    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 n...

    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...

    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 is...

    Mind-blowing material! This collected volume features issues #1-6 from the comic book series “Saga”.Creative Team:Writer: Brian K. VaughanIllustrator: Fiona Staples GOT SAGA? My name is Hazel. -- I started out as an idea, but I ended up something more. -- Not much more, to be honest.

    Oh my God, so good! SO GOOD. A completely fresh world, diamond-sharp characters, EXCELLENT ART and MIND-BLOWING WRITING.Brian K. Vaughan is one of my absolute favorites, and this -- the first volume in his most recent series -- reminded me why.SO GOOD!

    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 s...

    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...

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

    "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 w...

    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 more of that is coming in later volumes. I can't wait to see where it goes from here!

    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 a...

    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...

    Some people say that graphic novels aren't a legitimate form of great literature...I say that those people have clearly never read Saga!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 ...

    So when my mom entered my room last night and saw that I was reading a graphic novel featuring people with television screens for heads having sex, she didn't suggest therapy ... that's how I knew she loved me unconditionally. If I could describe this graphic novel in one word it would be "weird" but the good kind of weird. THE FANTASTIC KIND OF WIERD! I'm usually not a big fan of sci-fi at all but I kept hearing great things about this series so...

    I never really understood the craze for comics... until now.Saga is the story of two parents that just want to give their child a good life in a world that's fallen into chaos. It's a simple dream I really connected with, that kept me rooting for the two parents on every page.But what I really love so much about this story is that everything about it is fun. Even the antagonists. They're just caught up in this chaotic world, and even though Brian...
