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 ...more
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:
Edit 06/14 : Reread before Volume 3 (always fucking fantastic)
Mesdames et Messieurs, I'm pleased to announce that... this awesomeness of a book is my first 5-stars rating for a graphic novel! Prepare yourself for the love!
✭ Remember how I was amazed by the storyline of the first Volume? Scratch that : this one is even better. That's simple, we never seem to be able to breathe the whole time and the alternative POV bring more tension to the story, until we just can't put it down. Moreover, Hazel ...more
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.
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
Such clever, so art, very character.
Don't judge me. What did you want me say? It's Saga, you already know it was good.
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.
Prince Robot IV is back and has gone to Quietus to ...more
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?
On to the next volume!
