OMFG THIS IS SO, SO GOOD, like argh I don't have words for how good it is.

I loved all the characters, even the 'bad' guys, they are all so real and awesome, regardless that they have horns, are dead with half their body missing or have TVs for heads.

The story is narrated by a baby, well, when the baby is all grown-up that is. She tells how her awesomely badass parents had to fight to stay alive, stay together and to keep their newborn. They are both soldiers from opposing sides who deserted so they could be together and they both have bounties on their heads.

This is most definitely adult, there is bad language from the get go, violence, blood, gore and sex. The art is gorgeous and definitely adds to the enjoyment of the story. Basically I love everything about this book and I cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of the series.

this is one of the hottest comic titles to hit the shelves in recent years, and rightly so. with stellar writing from Vaughan and gorgeous, show-stealing art by Staples, Saga is a funny, heartwarming, action packed and basically just very cool take on the age old narratives of love and war, set in a world with magic and inter-galactic space travel and aliens.

It's a little bit raunchy, and little bit whimsical, and mostly just a whole lot of fun. The characters are layered and you'll fall instantly in love with the leading man and lady, the world building is inteeense with some truly novel ideas, and the story is just presented beautifully.

I'd recommend this to anyone, especially to people who don't know much about comics or aren't really into superheroes.
