Book Review: Saga Volume One

I had been on the hunt for the first volume of Saga for quite a bit of time but I was having a little bit of trouble locating it.  Everyone had Two and Three but One was nowhere to be found.  Mike added it to his handy dandy list of books that I was looking for and he managed to locate it in no time flat.  (I don't understand how that works but he does live in an area better populated by book and comic sellers than I do)


Saga had been briefly described to me by a friend which piqued my interest and I thought I had an idea of what I was getting myself in for but I really didn't.  I am not sure I even know where to begin on a review of this.


The art is simply stunning, it just blows my mind how it goes from eerie to downright creepy to breathtakingly beautiful.  There are a few panels I would love to see as prints to hang up on my walls.

Vaughan and Staples depict the world of Marko and Alana so vividly that I couldn't help but fall in love with it and get emotionally invested in their story.  Which of course made me want to kick myself when I got to the end of Volume One as I didn't have the next ones lined up and ready to read. I did however pick them up in Hamilton so I am excited to read them when I get a chance.

Have you read Saga?  Did you enjoy it?
