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.

This volume found what I felt was missing in the first: backstory and a lot of heart.
We learned more about Marko's past and how he and Alana met. I love him. So much.
I also enjoyed getting to know the new characters, Marko's parents and Gwendolyn, as they helped flesh out the story and provided some of my favorite moments.
Fiona Staples' illustrations did not fail me. They were so vivid - sometimes to a gross degree when it came to certain creatures.

Tender lovebirds, and not so tender bounty-hunters.

In this continuation of the series we backtrack to the early days when Alana, the soldier, and Marko, the prisoner, met, and how everything unfolded for them to be together. From an indifferent beating to a crazy incomprehensible love; while at the present time also fleeing Cleave from their many pursuers, and trying to find some place in the universe, any place at all, where their little baby daughter can be safe.

Sure, there’s a couple I came to enjoy, such as Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Vol. 1, The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 1: The Faust Act… but I never felt so attached to that of a bundle of characters in a same 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.

The second book in this graphic novel series by Brian K.Vaughan (writer) and Fiona Staples (artist) is as good as the first ….…. maybe even better, as we continue to get to know the main characters.
It’s bursting with mad invention, wonderfully evocative artwork, a story that is developing nicely and an ever growing cast of very strange characters.

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:

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 definitely ...more

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, Marko's dad Barr

Vol. 1 ★★★★

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 something ou

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?

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's narration, slightly ironic, allows us to see thfantastic)

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 find a "romance" author he thinks Alana and Markus are off to meet (since he is suspected of actually using his books to write subversive messages of pacifism and anti-war).



Oh, and we finally get to meet Markus' ex-fiancé, Gwendolyn. She finagles The Will into helping her look for Markus.



All in all, another fantastic volume. Tons of WTF moments, violence, sex, anything goes with this series, and I dig it.

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.
