image-comics-logoI don't think I've ever read a comic that's started out quite like this. I mean, comics like The Boys didn't startle me, or anything from Marvel's Max line of comics. Vertigo wasn't that bad either, but this... This had me in a slightly awkward state the entire time I read it. It's a very rich fantasy element coupled with a very rich Sci-Fi element. Add to that lots of cussing, sex, and all out weirdness and you have Saga #1. That's not entirely bad though. Follow me after the jump and we'll take a look at Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples Saga #1. Continue Reading »

I think Saga had me at the first panel. The dialogs are genuine and the overall feel of the writing is great, Brian K. Vaughan has a way of sucking you in early and holds you to the last page. The setting and characters seem to be a split directly down the line of fantasy and sci-fi, so much so it seems a little jarring but it's a world not too often seen. Definitely not putting this series down for a while.

Fantastic dialog. Good art, and creative characters and setting.

I was very skeptical about this book, even into the first through pages. But that quickly changed as I read on. I really liked this book and really look forward to future issues.

I had this comic recommended to me by a friend. When I picked it up I was a little sceptical about it. Wasn't sure what to expect with a girl breastfeeding on the cover with a goatboy. But I picked it up anyways, at first I wasn't a fan of the art but it grew on me as I read the book. As I read more I got more captivated by the story. It is a basic story about forbidden love and war. But I found it very well written and very engaging. I highly recommend this book it is a good read.

Might be the most ambitious and engaging #1 I've ever read. This series definitely hit the ground running.
