Short answer: Abso-freakin'-loutely.
SAGA is the type of space opera that only someone like Vaughan could do, and do with enough smarts, fun, emotion, action and surprises to keep the audience wrapped around his finger. It's the story of Marko and Alana, a pair of star-cross'd lovers from different sides of warring planets. Alana is from the planet Landfall, a place of great technological advancement, and their planet is in constant conflict with the magic-wielders of that planet's moon Wreath, where Marko hails from. Marko was captured after a battle with Landfall where he threw down his arms because he is a self-proclaimed conscientious objector, and he was imprisoned, where Alana, who was also somewhat disgraced in her military service, is his prison guard. Fast-forward several months, and Alana is giving birth to their child, Hazel, the actual narrator of the series. The very beginning of the series is dedicated to her actually giving birth, and it's hilarious and beautiful and suspenseful since they are being pursued from both sides of this galaxy-wide conflict.Read more ›
I picked up this trade on a whim, simply because it had Vaughan's name on it, (and who am I kidding? It was cheap!) I flipped it open and experienced the first page, which literally made me burst into laughter. Comics just don't DO that very often! I was laughing out loud in my local shop, and I'm sure that I looked like a loon, but I didn't care. I immediately purchased this book and headed back to my house to read it. I read it three times in a row; I could not believe the caliber of book I was reading.
Vaughan has created a universe that is completely ridiculous. I mean that in a good way. He has introduced to us a world that is so sickening, gorgeous, bewildering, and imaginative all at the same time. This story is essentially Star Wars meets Romeo and Juliet. It's such an injustice to categorize it like this, as that description doesn't do it justice at all, but it's as close as I can come off the cuff. Now, as you'd expect, the writing is superb. Vaughan has made this world so out of the ordinary, and yet somehow so relatable with his grounded dialogue and narration carrying the story along.Read more ›
SAGA VOL.1 collects the first issues, #1-6. A never-ending galactic war that has been happening between a planet by the name of Landfall, a planet filled with technologically advanced beings who have wings to fly, and its orbiting moon Wreath, a moon full of goat-like humans who are great warriors and wield magic. Alana (a being from Landfall), and Marko (a being from Wreath) do the unthinkable: they conceived a child named Hazel on a distant planet named Cleave. Both Alana and Marko forfeit their positions from their planets and decide to try to get away from the war effort. But both home planets find out about this and want them eliminated. Landfall has an agent from the Robot Kingdom, named Prince Robot IV (a humanoid-being with the head of a television set) go after them, while Wreath hires paid killers The Will (a morally complex being) and The Stalk to do the same. What will happen next?
Brian K. Vaughn wanted this book to match the title itself, in that it encompasses all aspects of a long and arduous space epic. It has drama, romance, humor, suspense, action, violence, charm, zany science fiction, abstract fantasy, the supernatural, politics, morals, sexuality, and just plain weird stuff. This book has it all. And it's only 6 issues in.Read more ›
