I love Alana so much!
She's such a kickass character!!!
That is how you write a female protagonist.

This is probably the most action packed in the first five single issues so far!
At first I was boxing up The Will thinking that he's just some other bad guy running after Marko and Alana, but this issue made me see the other of The Will and what can I say, I am liking him so far? So excited to continue with the next ones!!

“Violence is stupid. Even as a last resort, it only ever begets more of the same.”
― Brian K. Vaughan, Saga, Volume 1

Dugo sam se opirao čitanju Sage i htio sam čekati dok ne bude dovršena, ali jednostavno nisam mogao dočekati. A baš mi je ovako nešto trebalo! :-)

I kind of think that The Will is somewhat good, I don't know but I feel like he has a good heart maybe because he really wants to you know help this kid.

I'm not kidding you! Sh*t is happening in this chapter. And it has a lot of action in this one! Now, this is what I'm talking about man!

A lot of sh*tty is going on in this chapter. I kid you not! Many news and negotiation caught me by surprise too and some even allows me to think... wait... what!?~

I hoped Chapter 6 is gonna tell me more! Way too many cliffhangers in each chapter already!

I have finally caught up to where I was when I (unintentionally) dropped this series when I was reading it the first time.

I still enjoy the majority of these story arcs, and I really love Marko’s development, and the way that Vaughan uses the presumably adult Hazel’s “voiceover” to move the story forward.

So much drama in this issue, though I can't help but feel something ominous is just around the corner. The fact that the first collected volume of this comic ends with the issue following this one just raises my suspicions. I'm excited but I'm slightly dreading it. It sure didn't take me long to get attached to the characters.
A battle without casualties, (view spoiler), the death of (view spoiler) and the announcement of a pregnancy by (view spoiler) are events that are bound to have consequences in future issues...

It's extremely difficult to rate the individual chapters, therefore the following is a review of the first volume. In other words, chapters one through six.

I’ve said it before when reviewing other graphic novels, but I’m not the biggest fan of them. In fact, I mostly avoid them. However, every so often I get the urge to try another. As my last foray into a graphic novel resulted in a hidden gem, one I adored, I decided to give another one a go. Thus, I opted to dive into Saga. I have heard

Is anyone noticing that their prince is suffering from PTSD? The guy can't control hismelf and is still reliving the horrors he had in war AND his father sent him to the heart of one! This is frustrating!

As I continue my exploration and growing love for the comic book/graphic novel genre, I picked up a graphic novel that's been on my tbr pile for a while, Saga, Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Fiona Staples.

Saga was absolutely amazing. I discovered Brian K. Vaughan through the Runaways series, which is one of my favorite comics and Saga doesn't disappoint. The illustration and just imagination and creativity of the story and

1. This series literally has the best covers.
2. It's like fantasy/superhero/love story/sci-fi/drama/comedy. All genres in one.
3. The art is captivating and tells a story.
4. The little side frames of Hazel's narrations is pretty great.
5. I feel like people will soon have Alana's haircut. And grow horns like Marko.
6. The guy on the toilet reading Alana's romance book. Haha
7. My heart breaks for the 6 year old Sextillion slave.
8. The last page. :( the visual was everything.
9. I love The Stalk’s
Alana and Marko dispose of the Royal Vondertank forces easily. Because of his vow not to kill anymore, Marko puts the bested soldiers in a binding spell and the two of them fly away in the Vondertank. The Stalk finds the bound soldiers and at the same time so does Prince Robot IV, who mistakes her for reaching for something and shoots her.

BKV, now why did you have to go and do that? The Stalk had just started to get interesting for me, eversince finding out her and The Will hooked up.

Latest in the excellent and entertaining series by Vaughan and Staples, though I feel a bit less enthused than by some previous volumes - most of the fun characters have now been introduced, some have been removed from the scene, and there is a bit of shuffling the pieces around the story board to get them into the right place.

If I didn't already flove this hero and heroine, I certainly do now. Alana got gangster by shocking the hell out of The Stalk back in #2. And now she and Marko hold their own yet again. Our family man Marko goes apeshit when his family is threatened. And Alana is there to rein him back in. Gotta love these star-crossed lovers, right?

Was NOT expecting what happened at the end of this issue. And apparently neither was The Will.

Saga #5.

This series has really taken my interest.
I love the artwork. I love the action. The characters are developing nicely.



And Lying

I love the humor and the witty dialogue. The narrations by Hazel are very cool.

I find myself retreading every page multiple times and I want to start over...awesome.

I am really surprised at the depth to the development of the characters and the world building.

I will retread them all.

i LOVED how they killed the computer-heads (i still dont know what everyone's called)
and yeah.. the princess is pregnant .. HOLLY SHIT .. i guess that will have something to do with her changing her husband/boyfriend's mind on killing them because she's so emotional for them right now

The series is still fully entertaining, although it is kind of complicated. There is a lot that happens in this volume plot wise. You also learn a lot more about several characters. There is a cliffhanger at the end that makes me anticipate the next volume even more.

Saga continues to bother me with how expendable it's cast of side characters is. Too much of it is "shocking and sudden death to drive the plot forward".
