Vaughan and Staples’ wholly original Saga (2012) won Eisner awards for best new and best continuing series, and it’s no surprise. This smash hit continues to be a powerhouse: intergalactic intrigue, truly alien aliens, multifaceted characters, and a universe full of lush environments all wrapped around a compellingly told story of forbidden love in wartime. Marko and Alana are still on the run, evading the hired assassins in hot pursuit, but now they’ve been joined by Marko’s disapproving but fiercely loyal parents. Hazel’s insouciant narration is a high point, punctuating dramatic moments with well-timed, trenchant wit. Vaughan has a peculiarly wonderful world at his fingertips, and he’s setting himself up for something big, but it’s Staples’ stunning and otherworldly art that makes Saga such a thrilling read. Her rich, warm palette complements organic shapes not often seen in space adventure stories, and it’s this appealing combination that makes it so fresh. Vaughan and Staples are seriously upping the ante for comics. Fans will be eager to pick this up, and intrigued new readers won’t be far behind. --Sarah Hunter

I particularly like Izabel, Gwendolyn, and the Will as secondary characters as they are in many ways more interesting than the protagonists.
I decided to check out Saga after getting absolutely floored by the first Paper Girls trade and it did not disappoint. I like this series more than Y The Last Man already, and I REALLY like Y. The creative team behind this series really knows their stuff, both the writing and the art really draw you in to a clever story full of interesting characters set in this captivating, fully realized sci-fi/fantasy mashup of a world. I don't want to go into the actual details of what happens in this collection, but suffice it to say it ramps up well from the first one and if you liked that one you'll love this one.
HOWEVER I do have one strong recommendation for those considering this book: order the third volume at the same time. With the way this one ends you'll definitely want the next one handy to find out what happens next. I really like how Amazon makes this easy by offering these trades about $5 less than the cover price. Also, for the Vaughan fans out there reading this, be sure to get the first volume of Paper Girls. It's an amazing read.
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 out of this lesson, especially with all the hate this election season is bringing.
Hazel being the narrator was such a genius move by Brian K. Vaughan. It is so expertly done, too. One minute you feel your heart being ripped out, the next Hazel is making you laugh out loud. Hazel's voice is perfect, and watching her journey is magical.
This bind-up gives us flashbacks from the past constantly. It's done very well, and helps the reader get a way better understand at what Marko and Alana have at stake and why it's so important that love wins.
Marko’s ex-fiance also enters the picture and ends up joining forces with The Will. We also get some backstory on Alana and Marko and how they meet and got involved.
The story is fast-paced and the illustration and color are very well done. It’s easy to follow and I am loving the characters and the action. This is a very adult graphic novel, so I would recommend for mature (17+ readers) only.
Overall this was a wonderful continuation of the Saga series and I can’t wait to read the next one. I would recommend to adults who enjoy science fiction graphic novels with a lot of action and complex characters.

This series is a lot of fun. It doesn't try to reinvent comics and it seems to be a mishmash of a bunch of stuff we've seen...Read more
