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

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.
I enjoyed Volume 2 even more than Volume 1! I’m becoming a fan of The Will (one of the bounty hunters) more and more. I wouldn’t mind a spin-off with him as the lead having adventures with his sidekick Lying Cat. Crossing fingers they don’t get killed off in this series.
The writing and artwork is consistently good. Quality character development; you can’t help being engrossed with these characters lives. This volume is even more explicit than the first, which I dig. Definitely not content that would suit everyone’s tastes. If you are conservative, easily offended, and don’t like gore and raunchy material, steer clear! Like the first volume, there were several LOL moments for me.
I’m quite sad that I’m cruising through all these volumes so quickly. I’m nearly finished with the 3rd and am deliberately taking a wee break. I don’t want to finish all 4 volumes this fast. Volume 5 isn’t coming out till October this year. I’m dreading the wait.
The characters in this were utterly fantastic, as they were in the first volume. I had a very good time seeing who the characters are, and it was very easy to understand who everyone was since the artist made all of the characters look very diverse. I really loved seeing a ton of new characters, and seeing the set up that this book gave for the many future installments.
This, however, was not what I was hoping for. I wanted an epic sequel filled to the brim with action and intrigue, but the story in this seemed very lacking. From the epicness that was the first book, I don't know exactly what i was hoping for, but this was not it. I wanted there to be a lot more story, and for things to actually happen, but it just didn't. That is not to say that I didn't like this book, because I really did, but it was just not what I was hoping for.
