This beautifully illustrated adult graphic novel follows a husband and wife Marko and Alana from long-warring extraterrestrial races. On the run from authorities on both sides of a galactic war, the protagonists, with their newborn daughter in tow, must do anything they can to keep their young family alive. As a fan of Brian K Vaughan’s Y: The Last Man series, I was excited to hear of this new series. The collaboration with Fiona Staples yielded a truly amazing visual experience while still holding onto Vaughan’s sometimes dry, but always present, humorous, action packed style. Filled with colourful characters, hilarious dialogue, and fantastic action scenes, this graphic novel keeps the reader gripped from start to finish. (Submitted by Chelsea).

I fell behind on getting caught up with Saga. I am rereading them from the beginning. I am reminded how amazing and perfect and whimsical and spanning this world feels. Basically Romeo and Juliet meets Star Wars on a modern, sexy, and violent stage.

I love this series. The artwork is amazing, and I love how strong the female character is. It's definitely a story about star-crossed lovers/two people who shouldn't be together, but against all odds, they somehow end up together on a crazy adventure. If you enjoy sci-fi and fantasy, you'll enjoy this.

A great mature-audience sci-fi series with strong characters, huge monsters, and even bigger conflict that make it a pleasure to read.

Sort of the standard storyline of two lovers that aren't allowed to be in love but I really did like how strong they made the female character out to be. Also some pretty cool side line characters like the free lance mercenaries.

I absolutely LOVED reading this- I stayed up way past my bedtime looking at the pictures & reading every word. This is the first comic I've read since I was a kid, and now I'm on hold for the rest of the series. Can't wait to read them all. (also, my husband is super in to them as well!)

Thrilling, exuberant. Romeo & Juliet set in space plus some. Beautiful art, fantastic characters, and excellent writing. The Wreath language is Esperanto, helpful if you know it. If you don't, you can rest assured that it is translatable. However, you won't suffer much if you skip the Wreathsperanto and enjoy the story as is.

Adult themes.

Possibly the best comic series currently coming out, Saga is a fantasy space opera that grabs you by the gut and pulls you along for the ride of your life.

An epic adventure begins with fantastic writing and incredible artwork. The scope of the story and the blending of fantasy and science fiction in a very emotional story reminds me in ways of "Star Wars" -- but is definitely aimed at adults or older teens.

This was the comic that got me into reading comics. Great story, interesting characters, and some pretty solid artwork to boot. Definitely reaching must read territory.

Violence: There's pretty standard fighting for action-based sci-fi as well as some gore, though the gore isn't constant or especially intense. However, there is CSA/sexual violence against a child that it would've helped to know in advance to prepare for that mentally and emotionally. It's not explicitly shown; things are said to and about the child. Their situation is also shown and discussed.

Sexual Content: In this volume, a character visits Sextillion - a crazy brothel planet. So, yeah. Lots of sexual content.

mvkramer Aug 14, 2016

Violence: This series does not shy away from gore.

Sexual Content: Nudity. Shows naked breasts and an alien species having sex doggy style and more

It's about a story of an adventure where Hazel and her parents went through obstacles in her first few weeks of life leading up to the greatest potential.

A science fiction love story eager to show you worlds and characters who fully breathe within the pages. Strangeness rules in this tale and it is certainly not for those unwilling to simply let go and bathe in the story. Please check it out!
