Saga, Volume 1 - Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

My full review can be read at SFF Book Review.


Here's the short version.


THE GOOD: Incredible characters, fast-paced action, emotional levels to everything the characters do, and a world that begs to be explored more.


THE BAD: It was too short. The Stalk’s story arc was the only one that really suffered from the abrupt ending point, but I would have liked more in general.


BONUS: Lying cat. Also, The Stalk. That bitch is straight out of my nightmares.


THE VERDICT: If you haven’t guessed yet, I am going to recommend this book to everyone. It’s a fast-paced science fiction odyssey with Romeo and Juliet bickering along the way and super creepy creatures lurking in the dark. It is fun, it is original, and the art is beautiful. Go out and get it (or maybe wait until the second paperback comes out so you don’t have to suffer like me…)

RATING: 9/10  – Pretty close to perfection
