    Dear Mr. Vaughan, I do not know what process you go though to produce comics like these. I do not know what dark alchemy you perform, what infernal pacts you have agreed to, what terrifying drugs you must imbibe. I have no idea what arcane rituals you must perform every day, what odd odd habits of diet and exorcize you must maintain to keep your mind limber and sparking, to write things like this. I just wanted to say, whatever it is you're doing...

    This series continues to blow me away! Loving it!

    review to come, but man, am i loving this series!okay, time for a real review! it's hard to know where to begin….this series is all told from the POV of a girl, detailing the events and adventures of her baby-years and before, including the romantic forbidden love between her parents. it was not, however, love at first sight. but it's not all lovey-dovey stuff, nor even lovey-punchy-with-a-rifle stuff. there's also … this and how much do i lo...

    Loving this series so far! It's bizarre as hell, but AMAZING! Reminds me a lot of the old Star Wars movies.

    Saga is just superb. Aside from the cool characters, its general weirdness and unflinching nature, it also recognises the power of words:And for me that’s rather important. This particular book has caused the entire situation, pushing the characters to sue for piece in a world driven by hatred and war. The book made them fall in love with each other, and give birth to a new future that they now must fight to protect: a baby born from a union be...

  • Maureen
    The art is beautiful, the story is so complex and intriguing and I just love it a lot so far.EVERYONE WAS RIGHT ABOUT THIS SERIES
  • Nat
    This comic book is an incredible adventure right from page 1.I seriously could not put this story down. It made me laugh, smile, and even tear up at one point (Barr…). I never knew what to expect from the incredible ensemble of characters and I think that made the plot that more epic.The chemistry between all of the characters is phenomenal.Izabel, Gwendolyn, and of course Alana are so damn badass.And that ending was AMAZING.Why have I waited s...

    I put in requests at the library for these books. Did I take the time to look at how many holds they have on them? Nope. So I've ended up with Volumes 2 and 3 first and weeks to go before I'll get Volume 1. I still read this..because I'm a rebel like that. Plus my library sends letters out on over due books that scare me. This is a fun book. Told from the point of view of the young baby. It's well done and funny. Plus the art work is wonderful. P...

    If possible, this was even more wickedly delightful than its predecessor.• We're showered with some much-wanted backstory on my favourite duo:• Get introduced to a new set of badass mofos:• Feast our eyes upon more gloriously graphic art:• And of course, get a glimpse of the most adorable little bean that is young Marko:• Bonus content – Harambe makes an appearance (forgive me):

    A couple of star-crossed lovers from two different species on opposing sides of an interstellar war are on the run in a wooden rocket ship with their infant daughter and her ghost babysitter as they are pursued by the forces of both sides including a royal family member who is a robot with a television for a head as well as a bounty hunter who has an oversized cat who can tell when anyone is lying. Geez, why can’t any comic book creators come u...
  • Whitney Atkinson
    These are just genius. Funny, amazing and consistently interesting world, rad af characters. I wish I'd read this earlier today so that I had time to go grab the others from the library before it closed.
  • ✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ (former Nefarious Breeder of Murderous Crustaceans)
    Actual rating: a low 3.5 stars.Okay, so I'm not nearly as enthusiastic about this one as I was about volume 1 ← this might (or might not) be the understatement of the century. Volume 1 left me feeling like this:Yes, I am a cigarette smoking dude with a moustache and over-gelled hair in real life.This volume? It left me feeling like this:Yes, I am also a freaky-eyed sausage on paws in real life. I am so cool.But I am not completely insane yet . ...
  • David - proud Gleeman in Branwen's adventuring party
    Brian K Vaughan's epic Saga continues, as does the awesomeness from the first volume!Lovers who each come from opposite sides of two warring worlds, Alana and Marko have become the symbol for a possible union between the planet Landfall and the moon of Wreath. However, since the governments of both Landfall and Wreath have no interest in making peace with each other, they have declared Alana & Marco to be a threat to their ways of life, and have ...
  • Amanda
    In the first 6 issues of Saga (which comprised volume 1 of the trade edition), Brian K. Vaughan threw in enough weird ass shit to keep me in a delightfully perpetual state of "what the hell was that?" So much so that I worried the inventiveness might eventually wear thin, begin to feel as though it's trying too hard (as I sometimes feel with China Mieville's Dial H), or simply create such a labyrinthine mythology that it's just not worth trying t...
  • Megan Johnson
    I'm gonna make this short since it's a volume 2 and you can check out most of my thoughts on my volume 1 review. All in all, I thought this was a great second installment. It's still got the comedy gold, it's beautiful in a very real sort of way, and I tore through it really needing to know what happens next. It's left me impatient to get to volume 3, so I really can't complain. If you enjoyed volume 1, this one isn't quite as great but still, yo...

    MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListOMG! I loved this one even better than the first, although, there is one monster that will give nightmares for some time. You will see :-DSo Marko's parents get beamed on board and they are not happy to see that he married Alana who is supposed to be an enemy of their race. And, when they get there, Marko's mom banishes our wonderful ghost friend Izabel. Soooooo.... Marko goes off through the portal to find h...

    I loved this one too! It continues the story of PFC Alana and the "terrorist" Markus, two people on the wrong sides of a war who dared to fall in love and have a baby.We get a flash back of how baby Hazel was conceived:We get to spend time with Markus' parents. They are really great.And Izabel, the ghostly babysitter, is back.The Will goes to a pleasure planet, and in a moment of altruism, insists on buying a child sex slave no matter the costs.P...

    Re-read after becoming a die-hard fan fo the series, 5/9/18:I'm going nuts here. I feel so sorry for grandpa. I love Lying cat. I can't believe how good this The Will still looks! And all the introductions of characters who... *sob* *sniffle*... this is almost too much for me right now.Original review:Truly a quiet piece of genius, now that I've read this far. It's pacing is great and its characters are all fantastic. The deep subversion vibe of ...
  • Melanie
    Vol. 1 ★★★★I completely loved this. I was enthralled the whole time learning about Hazel and the events that lead up to her creation. This world is so creative and imaginative that I'm just blown away. This is one of the best graphic-novels out, and my words won't do justice as to why I would recommend this to every living soul. The main theme in this book is the blind prejudice that all these souls have grown up believing in, because it ...

    Edit 06/14 : Reread before Volume 3 (always fucking fantastic)Mesdames et Messieurs, I'm pleased to announce that... this awesomeness of a book is my first 5-stars rating for a graphic novel! Prepare yourself for the love! ✭ Remember how I was amazed by the storyline of the first Volume? Scratch that : this one is even better. That's simple, we never seem to be able to breathe the whole time and the alternative POV bring more tension to the sto...

    This series just cracks me up!
  • ✨Brithanie
    5/5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This was just as good as the first one! 💗 Super quick to read! Totally bizarre! Loved it! 💗
  • Trish
    Originally, I had planned to read this second volume not before May (the end of May to be exact) but after reading volume one yesterday and having both here at home in paperback form ... I just couldn't resist.This tells of Marko's parents being on the tree rocketship (have I mentioned I want one?) and how that affects everyone. They thought Marko had been kidnapped, then find out the truth ... and aren't happy. Especially not his mother.Neverthe...
  • Petrik
    Buddy reading this entire series with my favorite Princess CelesteAnother short review.I find Volume 2 of Saga to be a bit better compared to volume 1. We're starting to know more about the Star-crossed main characters, their past, family, and their hunters. It's interesting to see how Marko & Alana relationship develop since they're practically Romeo & Juliet in a Space Opera setting and also the narration done by Hazel added a nice touch and de...
  • Elizabeth
    Such clever, so art, very character. Don't judge me. What did you want me say? It's Saga, you already know it was good.
  • Simon
    Loving this series so far. It's batshit crazy but just totally great. I think if it arrived in my lap in novel form I would be in dire straits but the imagery is amazing and there's something nostalgic about it that takes me back to my comic loving days. Also love that it celebrates difference. Corking.
  • Markus
    Another enjoyable read. Some things were visibly improved, but overall I felt that Volume 2 was on about the same level as the first. These comics are fun to read, but I'll probably never understand people praising them to the high heavens.Among the new characters, I really liked Barr and really disliked Gwendolyn. As for the regulars, Lying Cat is turning out to be my favourite. And even though he's awesome, that does say a bit about the others....
  • Rachel Reads Ravenously
    4.5 stars God these books are so weird. But they're really, really good. Like, when I pick them up I can't put them back down! Took me forever to get a hold of this second book because of library holds and all. So I didn't remember the first book very well but this book picked up smoothly.I loved the dynamic between the in-laws and the mom. For example: The flashbacks of how Hazel's parents fell in love were probably my favorite parts, not necess...
