Saga is a new one for me but it seems pretty cool so far. It's a nice blend of sci-fi and fantasy, which I love. Kind of Star Wars-esque in a way. Great big space war taking place acrossed different galaxies and all that.

It's about a married couple, Alana and Marko. Their two races are fighting in a brutal war that is tearing the galaxy apart. They try to run away together and be alone to raise their infant daughter, but unfortunately it seems that everyone is out to kill them.

:monster:

Anyway, the series is narrated by their daughter starting with the day she was born and moving onward through her life. She has a cute way of going about her story. I have a sense she might still be a kid when telling this. Not sure though, that's just a guess.

The character designs, however, are the best part. So many different and imaginative races populate the different worlds. I wish I could get Photobucket to work properly. I'd post more pics for you all. But really, just go read it.

And if you don't want take my word for it here are ten reasons to read it on io9.

Been keeping up to date on this one, and it's pretty intense. Lying Cat is mega cool, and I love the character designs. There's a shitton of great things to say about this comic.

Lying Cat does seem to be the fan favorite. I know I immediately loved him. I want a cat like that. <3

It ads such a cool dynamic to little situations that's normally not present. It's the best little "bullshit alarm" ever. xD

Told Tenny this already, but just got volume 1 yesterday. Haven't read through it yet, but I plan to over the long weekend, after I finish with some other comics first.

Ah man, it's been a while since I was reading this. How's it been lately? I kinda fell out of it. It's still solid and well-written, I just stopped being really directly invested in their stories as I wasn't rooting for anyone in particular.

Tbh I haven't been keeping up with it either; I've just been flipping through some of the graphic novels when we get them in store. After inventory is done this Sunday I'm going to borrow the first book with the 20-something issues in it, so I can just binge it before we get the second one.

I love Saga. It's one of my favorite books going right now. Vaughan's writing continues to be top-notch. Fiona Staples artwork continues to be gorgeous as always. The story telling remains consistent. I won't get overly spoilery but this last story arc was pretty emotional and touching. I enjoyed it very much.

So I read the first volume of Saga and hoooo boi. What a ride.

I told Tenny this on Skype, but I nearly lost my shit when I thought Lying Cat was gonna be lost in space. Then The Will jumped after her and oh my... my heart melted.

I need to get the 2nd volume from work and then pick up on the comic issues from there. I HAVE to know what happens next.

I wasn't ready for the feelings this post would invoke in me. Man, this series left me wrecked. Had nearly forgotten about it. I've read up to Volume 6 but I see that Volume 7 is out now. T_T

Ok, so I borrowed Volume 2 from work and was able to read a couple of chapters tonight before bed and all I can say is WHAT THE FUCK.

Are all of my favorite characters in this fucking series going to die or something?? Is this like the Game of Thrones of fucking comics???

RIP Princess Robot. :(
