I love how this story of star-crossed parents on the run from governments and bounty hunters has this great diversion to a planet where the writer of sort of trashy science fiction lives. I read the author as an analogue for Samuel R. Delany who is one of my favourites, if that helps make any reading decisions.

3 Volumes in and the story continues to be absolutely breath-taking and enticing.

This was my first foray into comics - that really helped revitalize my love of reading and art. An amazing saga, not only in name. This series must be read. Warning there is especially some NSFW content in this comic.

As we continue to follow Hazel and her parents journey across the universe; as they try to escape their home-planets governments. We get the opportunity to see more into the lives of the other characters, and fall even more in love with them along the way.

Another warning - a line from the first volume mentions that it's okay to 'kill your darlings'; deaths in this series are 'forever' deaths - be prepared to cry. There is no superhero type revival - no matter how hard you wish for it, and especially in these upcoming volumes.

It just continues to get more interesting. The characters Marko and Alana are becoming more complex as is the mercenaries. Loving this series!

More fanart on the back, but the adventures continue with more action! And then, it would take place for about the rest of the year after the first volume began. To sum up, it was probably interesting, but I like how it turned out. Hopefully later, I want to know whether the rest of the story would do as it progresses onward. A bit of catching up on Wikipedia always got me to the point where I exactly left off before beginning and I am officially done for now. Artwork was still excellent and accurate.

I can't fully explain the wholly awesomeness that is the Saga series. Brian K. Vaughan is a genius - every series he is involved in is great.

This series has a broad appeal and is a must-read adult comic series.

Staples and Vaughan do not disappoint with the their third trade. The series continues to intrigue, delight, and surprise.

Inventive, emotional, action-packed, funny, and weird. Even though I think this story has many influences, including Star Wars and the Wizard of Oz it's completely original, too. Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples have achieved perfect comic alchemy of words and art with Saga. I love it and can't wait for more.

I love the Lying Cat. We need that in real life.

It requires collaborating with an artist.
And artists... frighten me.

There are only three forms of high art: the symphony, the illustrated children's book and the board game.

All good children's stories are the same: young creature breaks rules, has incredible adventure, then returns home with the knowledge that aforementioned rules are there for a reason.

Of course, the actual message to the careful reader is: break rules as often as you can, because who the hell doesn't want to have an adventure?

Here's the thing, everybody loves babies . . . but only in very, VERY small doses.
