Saga Volume 1 – Brian K. Vaughan

Illustrations – Fiona Staples

Alana is from Landfall, the largest planet in the galaxy, and Marko is from its moon, Wreath. Landfall and Wreath’s ongoing war has spread far out into the galaxy and, because they’re on opposing sides in this war, they were never supposed to fall in love. They were definitely never supposed to have a chid.

This is Hazel. She was born on Cleave, where her parents met. She has her mother’s wings and her father’s horns.

From my very first day, I was pursued by men. All of them tried to hurt me, but only one managed to break my heart.

It wasn’t long before I knew I would have to continue reading this series, no matter what. Actually, it was right about here that it happened.

Horrors? Count me in! Then I realised that this couple weren’t the only ones destined to encounter Horrors. I was soon to encounter a Horror of my very own.

What kind of nightmare world is this?! No time to read???

Incidentally I loved the Horrors, particularly Izabel. Everyone, please meet Izabel.

Those on both sides of this war are trying to track down this adorable family, including Prince Robot IV of the Robot Kingdom (these guys literally have TV’s for heads!)

and The Will, a Freelancer, whose sidekick, Lying Cat, possesses a unique skillset that has the potential to be quite useful. Although The Will is described as a monster he’s definitely the kind of monster I can cheer on, especially when he does this to a slimeball pimping out a child.

I’ve intended to start this series for months and now that I have, I can confidently say that I am so hooked! I love this story! You’ll be hearing a lot about this Saga from me in the coming days.

Content warnings include mention of rape and child sexual slavery.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
