Such a great space opera, such storytelling; it has everything, it promises everything and it cleverly delivers. I can't wait to see what else it got in its sleeves.

a more in-depth review will come when I'm feeling calmer about this series.

What a wonderful balance to the series. Characters develop and change more deeply, there's even more humor and good times, and more vulgarity and social commentary, even briefly upon transsexuality and homosexuality. The sheer diversity is exquisite.

A friend of mine asked me where this series is going, and that's a valid question. Unity, I think is the simplest answer. Chaos rules this series. Tragedies abound. But I think it's really about family, coming together, what it means, and the love a

Hazel is such a cute kid, and I love Squire finally coming into the story. Also Petrichor is amazing too. Really all of the characters are well done in this series, those are just some that I like even more.

Original review: Brilliant, amazing, stunning, and whatever else that Lady Gaga meme says.

Saga is one of the best graphic novels/comics being published currently, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
We pick up again with our heroes as they try their hand at living a normal life on the planet Gardenia, with Marco taking up stay-at-home-dad duties while Alana wins the bread as an actor in shitty tv shows on the Open Circuit. Oh and Hazel is a toddler!

The first part here is really great as we tightly focus on the relationship between Alana and Marco and it becomes a wonderful look at how doubts, trust and insecurity can strain a marriage even outside of the fact that the two are star-crossed l

I had been reading this for a while, but now just got around to finishing it. It goes without saying it's great.

Very nice edition with some extras at the end.

Volume 4, Chapters 19-24, 5 stars:

Excellent. This volume was really good. Lots of action, the plot had some great developments, I really liked it. A little darker, family life, drugs, the ending of the last chapter was a nice cliffhanger.

Volume 5, Chapters 25-30, 4 stars:

Lots of drugs, some sex, reflection on the bad things people do during war, redemption... Some people got reunited. Some didn’t. Some were healed, some weren‘t.
Let’s not forget the

Saga: Book One : ★★★★½

⠀i'm not going to do a serious review like i did for the first one since... it's a graphic novel and not that much really changes. as noted above, i gave the first book four and a half stars, which rounded up to five stars. i really enjoyed book two, however, i didn't like the plot as much as i did for the first one. i couldn't bring myself to put this book on the same level as book one (hence the drop of half a star). i won't state why since it

I want to say that I absolutely love Saga! I just recently finished reading the second Saga book (so a bunch of volumes put into one) and I really loved it (maybe even more than the first).


In this book of Saga, we pick up right where we last left our crew, in a lot of trouble (like always). Our main family is trying to live a normal life on a planet, hiding out from their hunters. However, what they do not know is the hunters are on kind of their own journeys at this point. (I real

This is truly one of the best series for binge reading!

Honestly, I remember I didn't love the Fadeaway volume as much when I read it the first time. It still strikes me as just a bit "After School Special"-y because it seems to wrap up pretty quickly but I appreciate it more for what it showed about Marko. We get that Alana is more family oriented and it never really seemed like she was all that violent and war hungry before. With Marko, we know he took a vow against violence but we don't know e

Saga: Book Two contains chapters nineteen through thirty-six plus about 30 pages of additional content. The additional content is guest art and interviews with the guest artists.

This book took me a long time to read. Partly because I was purposely reading it slowly, partly because book two is darker and more uncomfortable than book one. Still excellent.

Someone needs to write A Nite Time Smoke by D. Oswald Heist. Something like what Philip José Farmer did with Venus on the Half-Shell by Kilgore

I love this series, I can't wait for more. Few things are more enjoyable to me than an afternoon with an engrossing comic book.

Curse you, Saga, for making me care so much about your characters.

Massive degradation in story from the first 3 volumes. I really struggled with most of this. There were some saving graces, but over all I think i'm done with this series.

I love this graphic novel so much. The storylines are great. This family has been through so much, I am so glad they found their baby this time. They have so many out of this world characters. I cant wait to read the next one. I give this 5 out of 5 stars.

Man this story just keeps on kicking. Characters who may have seemed like a bad guy now have you caring what happens to to them. At no point can I predict what’s about to happen. So many twists and turns. I absolutely love Hazel. She is just so precious. I also like Ghüs. Such a cool character. But the reunion near the end damn near had me in tears. But the actual last panel then last page?!??? Can’t wait to start Book 3!!!

This series! Wow, this series has totally drawn me in. I adore everything about it, and I can't wait for more issues. I'm so invested in the lives of these characters! There isn't a single character that I'm not invested in, and if you asked me to pick a favorite it would be impossible. I could just sit here and rave all night about this series, but instead I'm just going to say that this one you need to read. It's fantastic.
I waited a long time to get my hands on this and it was well worth the wait. Wow. Saga is so beautifully drawn and written. The scope of imagination that has gone into this series is unparalleled. I love so much about this book- the characters are fantastic, the scenery, the little ruminations about parenting and life. How can a book with aliens on every page be so full of realness? It’s fiercely feminist, creative and magical and it tears my heart wide open.

If I didn't know it until now, there's no other way around it: I'm officially hooked on Saga. I really enjoyed this second book, even more than the first. We get to see the story expanding even more, bringing into the spotlight more and more characters and thus expanding its universe. There's a lot of funny moments throughout the book that had me laughing out loud but also some heartbreaking ones. The writing really kept me on the edge until the end and right now I'm not so sure if I should just ...more

Soooo good! I love the characters, both appreciating old characters as they evolve and appreciate the steady flow of new ones being introduced! I wish this book had more of Lying Cat in it, buy there is such a bevy of new and interesting creatures to take up pannels (of which I think Ghüs is my fav) that it is hard to complain! Vaughan continues to do a beautiful job of balancing his wildly imaginative story telling, fascinating insights, and surprising hilarity in a way that hits me just right! ...more

The best way to read this is to straight binge them, though I’m left with a sense of dread now that it’s over and I have to wait until next month when I can binge again, but Saga keeps me wanting more and more. I love everything about them: the art, the story, the characters, the weirdness and shock value, but mostly everything bundled up nicely together.

10/10 would recommend 😂🙌😍

Book Two here actually gets to where I had fallen off the wagon, and every new issue hurt and thrilled a little bit more. The deaths, the friendships, the close calls... There's nothing else quite like Saga on the market at the moment, and I can't wait for more.
