I have now finished reading five volumes of Saga by Fiona Staples and Brian K Vaughan. A friend gave me volume one for Christmas and I had to buy the rest of it immediately.
I’m not normally a big fan of graphic novels. I have been dragged reluctantly into reading them. This book grabbed my attention in the first three pages and I feel kind of cranky I have to put it down now.
It’s about love and family and race and war. It’s about what it means to find and lose love. It is about what it means to be a parent.
It is about the fact that life is always just a bit more complicated than you want it to be.
On top of that the art is beautiful. The characters are fantastically real in their balance of good and evil.
Totally worth a read.
