I've been really enjoying this comic. The characters and their plight is interesting. Some of the narrative jumps in time feel a little disconnected. #comic #diversity #lgbtcharacter #space #war #love #family #ghost #robots

A really intriguing introduction to the world of this series! We get hints of what‘s going on, but we‘re thrown into this story of a family on the run from a war between their two worlds. After reading the first volume, I had to know what was going to happen next and immediately ran to pick up the next volume.

kgriffith I started this one during a readathon and rushed to my local comics/game store before they closed to get the rest that were out at the time so I could keep going 😊 I want a Lying Cat! 2w

Looking at how many series I caught up on in 2019, or read for the first time in completion (from what is currently published), I'm feeling very accomplished! Especially those GoT tomes.

I'm including Percy Jackson on my graphic, but I do have one left to go to finish that series. Soon!

Thank you @TheSpineView for organizing #seriesread! Will you be doing it again next year?

vumblereads Oh wow congratulations! That‘s quite an accomplishment! 3w
RvnclawWhovian How did you like Locke & Key? I‘ve been wanting to try out that series 3w

It comes as no surprise to me (and it is to my absolute delight) that EW named Saga the best comic of the decade. I love this fascinatingly sprawling and heartbreaking epic and will tell anyone who will listen all about it 😂

The entire list can be found here:

Liked it. Though I wasn't as mesmerized by it as the hype surrounding it suggested, I still did enjoy reading this novel. The artwork was ok. Loved the premise, the dialogues were superb! Liked Marco but didn't warm up to Alana, not sure why. I am sure it's just gonna get more interesting. Hence, definitely reading the next volume. So yeah, pick it up for a nice adult (sci-fi + fantasy) graphic novel read.

Just a few pages in & am liking it. I do hope it's as good as the reviews say it is... Who else is reading or has read this 1??

My monthly reading challenge was to read a book out of my genre comfort zone. For me, that is easily sci-fi. I have heard great things about Saga so I decided that would be a good place to start. Let me start off by saying this graphic novel is beautiful. The story was good. I‘m still just not a sci-fi fan. That being said, if anyone has any recommendations for a beginner level sci-fi drop them in the comments. I really want find one that I love.

Foxyfictionista Maybe try Becky Chambers. This book is sometimes called 'rainbow and sunshine' sci fi. 4mo
SilverShanica Try Dalia Black by Keith Thomas. It‘s a mock-ography style, so it doesn‘t feel like sci fi while still being sci fi. It is a great way to try something out of your comfort zone without jumping into the deep end 4mo
Dyslexicon13 Try some Ray Bradbury, Phillip K Dick, or H G Wells 4mo

ravenlee I‘m not much for sci-fi either, but this has been my favorite read this year. It‘s space opera, so there‘s romance and family drama but set in space. 4mo

xicanti You might have better luck with SF marketed as litfic. I recommend STATION ELEVEN by Emily St John Mandel and AN OCEAN OF MINUTES by Thea Lim. 4mo

I admit I was not looking forward to the #comicorgraphicnovel prompt for #booked2019. Saga blew me away! It‘s so good that I stayed up way past my bedtime so that I could finish the first four volumes in one day. I might be hooked on graphic novels now.

KathyWheeler I avoided graphic novels figuring I was far too old from them. Then, when I was 50, my much younger brother introduced me to Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman, which I loved. I found Saga and Joe Hill‘s Locke & Key, both of which are fantastic, by myself. Saga blows me away. In every issue. 5mo

Glad I got to see what all the fuss is about with this one since it seemed like everyone but me had read it recently. A compelling new start to a series. I really enjoyed this but I'm not sure I'll continue reading. Graphic novels aren't my go to genre, and when I read them it's usually for the art which I wasn't totally blown away by here.

RamsFan1963 Keep reading, you'll be amazed how much you come to love the characters, and how much it will break your heart 💔💔 6mo

I‘m so conflicted. This is the first graphic novel I‘ve ever read, so I‘m not sure if it‘s me or the authors style that‘s driving my opinion.
The story is very interesting, the art style is very beautiful as well. That alone would be ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Buuuuut.....the super sexually graphic scenes are really disturbing. It does take away from the story and art A LOT.
So honestly I would rate this ⭐️⭐️ but will keep reading for the story.

iread2much I used to read graphic novels all the time, and I just can‘t get into this one for the same reason. I prefer story over sex any day of the week 7mo

Marko and Alana are lovers from different races who have been at war throughout the galaxy for millenia. Now they are fleeing with their daughter because both sides want them dead and the child handed over. Why? That‘s not explained. There are many loose ends and I didn‘t love the art work as much others.

phantomx There are more volumes that come with this series that explains more. For most of the story, bounty hunters are tracking the family down 'cause their daughter is proof that the two opposing races can see past the war between each other. As for the loose ends, I think the wirter doesn't want readers to assume they know entirely a character in the first volume. If you didn't like the story of Saga, then you could try Paper Girls. 7mo
Henrik_Madsen @phantomx Thanks for the comment. I haven‘t given up on the series - and I understand the writing trick of holding something back - but I just wasn‘t blown away by the first volume. Maybe it will grow on me. 7mo

#underrated I‘m not saying Saga is underrated, Graphic Novels in general are. So many people refuse to read them, & refuse to acknowledge them as books because of the art. GN are an amazing way to tell stories, I have seen them used to get teens back into reading. Not every person can imagine a story in their head & having pictures doesn‘t mean they are less of a book. They are an amazing medium that deserves way more acknowledgement.#30junebooks

More exciting news for comic fans. A new compendium volume gathering the first 54 issues of Saga is coming this fall!!! Better yet, Vaughan confirmed that they are at the halfway point in the comic—54 issues done, 54 more to go!!! That will make Saga an impressive 108 issues when it is all said and done. No word yet on when they are going to get back to work on things but it‘s all good—so excited we have a lot more story to look forward to!

Look. Even if graphic novels aren't your thing. PLEASE make them a thing for this series! I crushed Vol 1 in a sitting.
It has everything.. A war, forbidden romance, violence, sex, sci Fi..... But to make everything better - the characters are downright awesome. Same with the world building.

Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to something really cool. This was out of my comfort zone to pick up since it's a comic but I'm not regretting it!

RamsFan1963 I've read vols 1-4, and I got 5&6 on Thursday. One of the best comic book series I've ever read. 10mo
akckitty @RamsFan1963 yes, I completely agree! I hope you're able to pick up 7 & 8 from your library soon!! I saw hold times at mine and decided against it and decided to splurge a little... I was hesitant to do so but obviously not a regret anymore! I only got up to the 5th one so I'll have to see how to get my hands on the rest! 10mo
TK421 This is one of the best series that I have ever read. Brian K Vaughan is a great writer, and he will really play on your emotions later. Enjoy the ride!😊 10mo
Aimeesue Saga is available on Hoopla, if your library subscribes! No waiting! 10mo
akckitty @TK421 I'm not reaaaaaady for all the emotions! 😭 10mo

I'm not very far at all into this and I'm already in love with Alana. You go girl 😂😂😂😂

I'm so glad I purchased the rest of the series. I just know I'm going to get addicted.

akckitty @hermyknee I'm no expert on graphic novels as it's not what I usually read but omgggg why I haven't read this sooner, I don't even know. It's so good!! 10mo
RamsFan1963 I finally got Vol. 5&6 from the library yesterday. They had Vol. 9 too but 7&8 were checked out 😡😡😡 10mo

If you haven‘t picked this up yet I‘d highly recommend that you do, and quick, you won‘t regret it!

Why did I wait so long to read this? I probably thought it was going to be another cheesy sci-fi comic. Saga has all the ingredients that make a story great. I‘m in love! 💗

So, I had 10 minutes to fill and meant to just read a few pages. I ended up forgetting to eat dinner and finished the whole book in one sitting. It‘s rare for me to be able to sit still for more than 20 minutes at a time, so this is impressive. Great writing and art. Still skipping dinner so I can go dig out Vol. 2.
