Series: Saga by Brian K. Vaughan (illustrated by Fiona Staples)

I was recommended this series a little while ago and finally got around to reading it. I was instantly addicted, only to then find out that there’s only two volumes out with a publishing rate that looks to be about one per year. It’s like A Song of Ice and Fire all over again…

The storyline is quite interesting – it’s a Romeo and Juliet story between two aliens from planets (well, one planet and one moon) at war, told from the perspective of their daughter. The characters are interesting and amusing, and the plot compelling.

The artwork is absolutely gorgeous. My only caveat is that if you borrow these books from the library, you should try not to read them in the children’s books section while waiting for your toddler to select his books. The giant with the massive scrotum was, in retrospect, a little inappropriate.

Buy Saga, Vol. 1 from Amazon and support this blog!

One thought on “Series: Saga by Brian K. Vaughan (illustrated by Fiona Staples)

  1. I love this series. I love the politics, the sociology, the symbolism, the metaphors. Saga have completely changed my view of comic books. I was so silly to assume that they had no value and purpose other than to entertain.
