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, please keep doing it.

Sincerely,

pat

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.

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 between two races that have always hated each other:

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 so long to read this series?

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.


Plus you have this guy..You know I had to go there.

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.

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 each dispatched hunters to murder Alana &

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 to puzzle it all out. The second 6 issues have defi ...more

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, you've gotta know what happens, right?

OMG! I loved this one even better than the first, although, there is one monster that will give nightmares for some time. You will see :-D

So 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 her and his mom follows him. This leaves Alana, Mar

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.

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 has always been forced upon them. Everyone can take someth

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.
Nevertheless, they come around (sort of, for now) and the

Another 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 depth to its storytelling. It will be awesom

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.

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.

I'll probably write a full series review when I'm

I loved the dynamic between the in-laws and the mom. For example:
