Despite what you might think based on my recent graphic novel reviews, I really don’t read this kind of thing all that often. What happened is I discovered that hoopla has a really great selection of graphic novels and that sometimes, when life is crazy, you just need to escape into a weird world with great illustrations.
The first volume is pretty much an introduction to the world of Saga, which is… pretty crazy. Think of just about anything from a sci-fi book or movie, and it’s probably happening here. There are star-crossed lovers, there are ghosts, there’s a giant cat that doubles as a lie detector, there’s a spaceship and bounty hunters and people with TVs for heads and… I think you probably get the idea.
This was a lot of fun to read, and on top of that, it’s a great story and the art is amazing. I can’t wait to read the next two volumes and then cry because I have to wait until December 1 for the rest.
P.S. This wasn’t recommended to me in particular, but Leslie’s review is a big reason that I picked it up, so I definitely owe her some thanks for the entertainment I’ve gotten from this series!
