I now understand why everyone raves about this one, but I don't think I'll continue the series since it's not really my cup of tea. ( )

Un comic qui renouvelle le genre science-fiction.
Le dessin est top. ( )

A unique story setting unlike any I've seen before. Two soldiers on the opposite sides of war find love and fight against all odds for their daughter. I'm intrigued. For the creativity alone I will probably continue this series. ( )

Written and illustrated by two of the most acclaimed names in comics, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, Saga presents itself as a space opera, a science-fiction subgenre that emphasizes romantic adventure, exotic settings and epic characters.

Influenced by the Star Wars franchise and considered a mix between that universe and Romeo and Juliet, the story follows the adventure of Alana and Marko. From two different alien races, the couple fled from the authorities to take care of Hazel, their newborn daughter, who occasionally tells the story, predicting a life expectancy beyond the first arc.

Alana is a native of Terravista, the largest and most technologically advanced planet in the galaxy. Marko, in turn, comes from Coroa, Terravista's only satellite, which is why the war between them takes place on other planets, causing chaos throughout the galaxy – and the need for the birth of an idea that expands and grows, capable of conquering an entire cosmos, a symbol of hope for two estranged peoples. However, the story is not, at all, about a galactic war: it is about being a parent.

Brian K. Vaughan wanted to talk about fatherhood, especially since his wife became pregnant for the second time at the time of the series' creation, but he wanted to do so in the context of a more interesting genre story than making jokes about diapers. That said, he decided to create a science fiction narrative, filled with elements of mythological fantasy, which takes place in a universe occupied by surreal beings, shocking for their complex and curious anatomies, such as the spider-like freelance bounty hunter The Stalk, Prince Robot IV or the inhabitants of Sextillion.

With the support and talent of Fiona Staples, one of the most highly awarded comics of all time was born: winner of six Eisner Awards, the ultimate honour of Anglo-Saxon comics, an unprecedented feat for an independent comic; a Hugo, a prize that distinguishes the best science fiction published each year; and six Harveys, who award the best independent comics. The reasons for such success relate to both the script and the art.

First, we are facing a subversive and provocative family adventure, about how we can raise a family and a child when the whole world seems to be against us. And it does that without failing to address difficult issues - from cultural issues to the consequences of war, from vegetarianism to joint problems, from racism to sexual and child exploitation - thus becoming, more than a comic book, a biting social critique.

In fact, with a rhythm typical of action stories, there is little time to breathe, but also little desire on the part of the reader: even with a division into six chapters, stopping is a big no and reaching the end of the first volume an inevitable tragedy.

As for Staples' art, there are no words to do her justice. The design and colours work in an excellent way, in contrast, tones and nuances, and impress in every scene. The characters are so expressive that they don't even need the support of the dialogues, and yet what's amazing is the seemingly inexhaustible imagination to create alien races. Like the giant creatures that come across the family path, familiar animals, such as a turtle or a wild boar, transformed into mutants capable of dropping our jaws on the ground. A flawless and very graphic work, not recommended for children or adults who are likely to be offended by sexually explicit scenes or who, on the other hand, are concerned about the amount of blood that stains some of the pages.

Given this, it's no wonder that Saga is a success. After all, it's no longer a story about good versus evil. It's just a couple, like so many others (probably a bit cooler and badass), looking for a better future for themselves and, above all, for their new offspring. With an intelligent and humorous argument, the reader is confronted with the violence of the world through a fictional and fantastic narrative. ( )

It took me three days to read this volume. Not because it was boring or because I didn't have time to read it. It took me three days to read it because I wanted it to last. I didn't want it to be a fast read. I wanted to savour it, make it last, enjoy every page, the art, the story. EVERYTHING! It got humor, love, action and some really good art.

I loved this graphic novel. I mean this is the first I have bought in a long time. And, I bought it because of all I ever saw was people praising it. Any you know what? They are all right it is that good! There are many reviews out there that are very good, describing the story with images everything. But I just want to say that I enjoyed reading it very much and it is now looking very good in a prominent place on my bookshelf.



I ordered volume 2 today after I finished volume 1. Should probably have ordered them all when I think about it. ( )

After us locals die, we get to live on as "spiritual defenders of Cleave."
But clearly, that's a suck-ass evolutionary plan, since your two armies had no problem wiping our people off the map.
