It feels like the beginning of something big. Almost like Lord of the rings or Star Wars. Heartfelt, adult, thrills with twists and turns and fantastic characters. Jan 24, Vicky N. Popsugar Reading Challenge - A book with pictures. Saga is the story of two star crossed lovers. Landfall and its moon had been at odds for as long as they can remember.
Their war had traveled throughout the whole galaxy making planets choose sides. Until Alana and Marko, two soldiers from each side fall in love and have a baby, coexistence between this two species seemed impossible. Saga starts with the greatest happiness, the birth of th Popsugar Reading Challenge - A book with pictures. Saga starts with the greatest happiness, the birth of their baby and follows with the constant fear that they might lose their little girl to the war.
Each panel made me fall in love with its characters and its story a bit more. Each character that makes even the smaller appearance will stick with you and they go from the bizarre, to the just plain weird. And I love it. I admire Brian K. Vaugh and Fiona Staples so much, how they have managed to understand each other so well, and they each know when it's time to let the other shine. Some of the best parts of the story are when Brian lets Fiona's art speak for themselves without any dialogue or when Staples does a simple background to let the character's dialogue resonate.
Saga is at times funny, at others touching, and sometimes even maddening, but every single page has managed to astonish me. It is and will always be one of my favorite comics because it made me fall in love with the genre. And I would recommend it to both comic book fans and non comic book fans. It is a good story, made even better through the great art of Staples.
It reminded me of when I was a little kid and what reading a great fantasy novel for the first time felt like. It felt like the discovering of a world where everything was new and wondrous. Dec 25, Susie rated it it was amazing Shelves: reads , current-favorites. I love it still. I cannot help myself. Saga has a rich and exciting plot, fully formed interesting characters, and artwork that is out of this world.

Vaughan, and the illustrator, Fiona Staples, are such profusely talented collaborators that their work must be outstanding examples of the genre. Perhaps best of all, in the final pages of the hardcover version of Volume I Vaughan lets us in on the magic of creating graphic novels.

Since the writer and illustrator both have unmatched imaginative and artistic skills, their generosity in sharing the techniques of creation seem unlikely to infringe upon their respective positions at the pinnacle of graphic novels. Residents of a world are war with the residents of their moon. But it can be satisfying fare for adults as well because of the exquisite portraitures and expressions we recognize, and the heavy doses of physicality and fornication elicit something more than morbid curiosity.
The opposite of war is view spoiler [fucking hide spoiler ]. Surely just the awesomeness of the paired writing and drawing should be a subject of study: the difficulty of culling physical and verbal communication to their essence without losing the particular personality of the speakers. Personally I was more taken with the visual component of Saga Vol I rather than the arguments presented in support of the anti-war philosophy, but I think together they make a marvelous combination.
And I appreciated the To Be Continued section of the book in which the finesse, attention to detail, and the agonizingly slow process of creation, correction, and distillation is highlighted. Jul 29, Valerie rated it it was amazing Shelves: library-books , favorites , graphic-novels. I loved Saga. Loved it. I'm not entirely new to graphic novels as a whole, because I've read tons of manga, but Saga is my first Western graphic novel, and it is pretty much completely different. You're thrown into a completely different world, and all you can do is accept it.
Robots with TV's as heads, horned people, winged people, a tree spaceship, there's nothing you can do but accept everything that's happening. And why? Because the characters are freaking fantastic. Our two main characters, A I loved Saga. Our two main characters, Alanna and Marko, have found themselves in love and with child, even though they're on the opposite sides of a never ending war.
Together, they encounter enemies and allies alike as they travel the galaxy in a tree spaceship. What makes the story so appealing other than the squishy baby , is the art, and the way the story is told. Not only are the character interactions entertaining, the story is also sometimes narrated by an older version of the baby, as if she were telling her life story from the beginning. There is also the originality of, well everything.
What seems to be a simple war between two species and their allies has a more complicated message hidden behind it. I need more graphic novels in my life If it isn't evident, I could not get enough of Saga, which is why I need to find the second half of the series soon. But at the same time, I don't want to finish it because of how unique it is. I didn't even care about the lack of background information, in the end it fit the overall vibe of the novel. In conclusion, read this ASAP. It's a fast read, as it's a graphic novel and all, and the art and story are both gorgeous.

This was just as good the second time as the first! I just love the characters, writing, and art. Could not possibly recommend this any more highly is that correct grammar? Who cares? Baby Hazel is adorable. Jan 27, Lost in Book Land rated it it was amazing. After hearing a lot of people on various book platforms talk about Saga I really wanted to give it a try, however, upon looking at Hoopla the software my local library uses there were so many choices for this graphic novel series I was not really sure where to start.
So I sat down and did a little looking and research and found that by reading Book One I would be covering a lot of the volumes and starting at the beginning which is everything I wanted to do. So I borrowed book one from Hoopla a After hearing a lot of people on various book platforms talk about Saga I really wanted to give it a try, however, upon looking at Hoopla the software my local library uses there were so many choices for this graphic novel series I was not really sure where to start.
So I borrowed book one from Hoopla and set out on my journey of starting Saga! She is a child born to star crossed lovers in the middle of a war. Her parents are from opposite sides of the war, her mother was a soldier working to guard prisoners on one side while her father was a prisoner on the other side one that her mother happens to guard at a point. There is the Prince out looking for them told he is not allowed to come home until he catches them , several freelancers who have been hired to hunt them down who end up having a fascinating storyline of their own , and Gwen I am sure I may be missing a few of their pursuers.
I really do not want to say more than that on the story as I said this bind up contains so many volumes and I do not want to spoil the story but guys I love this graphic novel series and I am so ready to read the next set. The illustrations are amazing in this graphic novel and the storyline kept me turning pages constantly. This was a rather large bind up and I never wanted to put it down and I instantly wanted to pick up the next. I am giving this five stars on Goodreads and if you have not please give these a try!

I have completely fallen in love with this world and characters. Can't wait to read book two.

Saga is so vital, imaginative, and beautifully executed, it might serve as atonement for unleashing that vicious blight on the landscape of television drama, 'Under the Dome'.
How someone so talented could screw things up so badly, I'll never understand. I've entertained the possibility that it's a case of writing-room compromises or studio interference, but the fact remains that he's the only man credited with developing this attack on narrative coherence. I hope he wakes up screaming, in a cold sweat, before trying to bury his nightmares about glowing eggs and butterflies in a pillow stuffed with hundred dollar bills. I'm exaggerating, obviously. Under the Dome is a fucking holocaust of bad ideas, but I think the season 1 pilot and -- perhaps -- the next episode were the extent of his direct involvement, since they were lightly entertaining and fairly well-written They even improved on Stephen King's novel -- although the novel was mediocre even relative to his lesser books -- and got my hopes up that Vaughan would flex his creative muscles and show everyone why he's one of the most respected idea-machines in comics.
But instead of building upward, getting better with each new instalment, things went downhill Things got straight-up fucking subterranean, with the hack writers and producers showing up with shovels to dig themselves in deeper, apparently hoping to break through the sewer-pipes and make things as shitty as possible. With Saga, you get B.
Vaughan doing what he does best: writing unique, exciting stories full of imaginative plots and fully-fleshed characters, engaging the reader immediately in a fantasy-world of his own devising. Fiona Staples is just as integral to the success of 'Saga', crafting beautiful artwork that suits the material perfectly. The tale begins as a variation on the Romeo and Juliet theme, but both lovers belong to warring alien species instead of feuding families, and neither of them play around with faked suicide gambits.
Also, there's a baby in the picture. I won't bother breaking down the story, since the salient points are available everywhere, and spoilers should definitely be avoided for 'Saga'. Read it. You'll like it Its' next season is going to be accompanied by a warning: "One season of 'Under the Dome' will knock ten IQ points off your intellect". There is still hope that season 3 can somehow be avoided. UN diplomats are working around the clock to find a non-violent solution, and there's a very good chance that the cast and crew will stand trial in the Hague for crimes against humanity.
God I hope so. Vaughan can write comics all day long in prison, but it would shut down his TV career completely. Dec 07, Drew rated it it was amazing. Just an absolute blast. I could go on and on about the joys of this book - what's another thing I haven't mentioned yet It's a big ol' sci-fi adventure, written with joy and imagination. Just what the doctor ordered. Of course with a title like Saga, we have to realize that we're going in for the long haul.
The first issue came out in March ; it's Just an absolute blast. The first issue came out in March ; it's now December I know, I know, I could pick up the individual comics themselves in order to stay in the world of the story Come back and get the big book s later on down the road. And for the first time in a very long time with a serialized story, I'm tempted to do it. The breadth of this story is breathtaking and in the two hours it took me to burn through the entire collection seriously , I was as giddy as a kid watching The Empire Strikes Back - or, frankly, as a year-old watching Guardians.
Goodness but I want to live in this wild, lurid, crazy, beautiful world that Vaughan and Staples have created. It is that cool. Full review TK. Feb 28, Frank rated it really liked it Shelves: comics-omnibus. Had this one on the shelf since it was released, and knew that this was a popular series, no I know why. I breezed through these pages and could not put it down.
Great story, great writing and realistic dialogue, with real characters and real struggles that I came to care about. The series introduces two characters Marko and Alana, from different races fall in love while Marko is a captive of Alana, then have a child, Hazel, who becomes a narrator and observer of the story.
The fact that they hav Had this one on the shelf since it was released, and knew that this was a popular series, no I know why. The fact that they have broken all laws o their worlds causes them to go on the run and they are chased by and aided by a several great characters that are introduced along the first 18 issues in this deluxe addition. When will they issue the next deluxe, soon I hope!!!
I highly recommend this read , you will not be disappointed. Dec 04, Aildiin rated it it was amazing Shelves: comics. The rating should not come as a surprise as I already told everyone I know how I felt about Saga. This is however a nice addition to the bookshelves of any Saga fan.
This book makes it easy to re-read in one sitting all previous issues of Saga while at the same time giving you a way to display your love Saga nicely on your bookshelves. Highly recommended.

I had an itch for the past few months to find a good graphic novel that was going to blow me away both with its story and its illustrations. I grew up reading classic comics and graphic novels mostly Calvin and Hobbes and the works of Carl Barks , but I hadn't read one in years and I really wanted to reanimate my love for the genre.
Well this book definitely did the trick.

Definitely looking for recommendations of good graphic novels by the way, please let me know in the comments if you know of any good ones. I was really loving the first two volumes, but the third one really blew me away and it is the turning point for me. The characters really came together in the third volume and the story starts to feel epic. It's a very imaginative world and I love how sexually liberal and progressive it is.
Also a great large cast of characters, with extreme diversity. But the best aspect of this graphic novel by far is the illustrations. They are stunning and some of the best I've ever seen.
Gorgeous colours, they really bring the world Vaughan has created to life, and Staples doesn't shy away from portraying realistic nudity, gore and violence. And in the heart of this colourful world, lies a sweet heartwarming story. This beautiful hardcover edition with the first 3 volumes is stunning and well worth it and I definitely recommend it if someone wants to start the series to get this edition because it really gives you a good first chunk of the story and you can get into it and then decide if you want more.
I know I certainly do. I cannot wait to get my hands on the second book collecting the next three volumes.

It's a hardcover, and I like this series so much that owning and collecting the hardcover editions seemed like a good idea.

This is a series that you just have to convince people to t I read volume 1 of this series earlier this month, and I knew immediately that I needed to get my hands on the entire series. This is a series that you just have to convince people to try, because it's sort of hard to explain its brilliance without giving anything away.
I was seeing this series all over bookstagram, and I continually heard people talking about how fantastic it is. I sincerely can't think of a single person who read any part of the series and said it wasn't really for them, or that they didn't think it was fantastic. I knew nothing about the story at all, and I think that's the best way to approach this series.
The reader is immediately thrust into the lives of the protagonists, and from almost the very first page is simultaneously loving and rooting for them. That's all I'm going to say as far as plot goes. The art, the story, the characters seriously, you become invested in ALL the characters , the world, all of it. It's absolutely amazing and so well done. I'm completely hooked, and already looking forward to Book 2. Jun 01, Cheesecake rated it it was amazing Shelves: end-hfn , genre-graphic-novel.
