323 posts | 606 read | 5 reading | 99 to read
Winner of the 2013 Hugo award for Best Graphic Story When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe. From New York Times bestselling writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina) and critically acclaimed artist Fiona Staples (Mystery Society, North 40), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in this sexy, subversive drama for adults. In volume 3, as new parents Marko and Alana travel to an alien world to visit their hero, the family's pursuers finally close in on their targets.

Another entry in this expansive series. Vaughan and Staples have a great way of educing my care. There were several emotional cliffhangers between issues- I can see how the hiatuses later on would be difficult to handle. I got all the currently available volumes from the library yesterday and I‘ll be working through them this week, in between my other reading.

I don't think much happened in this one compared with the previous volumes, but it was still a good read.

Overall, it's a good story, engaging with awesome artwork. 3⭐️

#NCBD!!! Today is all about Saga #62 especially after the last issue‘s cliffhanger ending. I have no idea where the story is going but I will follow Vaughan/Staples anywhere. Great story, gorgeous art—I expect this is another issue that will make me feel ALL the feels.

AAAAAAAAAAHHH!

You THINK you know where the story is going after you see the first page & then you turn it and nope, that‘s not where the story is going...it‘s going elsewhere & that‘s okay because of course it‘s good. And THEN…

AAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!

I…

Deep breath…

If you are a fan of Saga, buckle up. This one does not disappoint.

Great writing &, as always, stunning art from BKV & Fiona Staples. So good. Okay, stopping the fangirling now…

It‘s all about Saga #61 today. I saw a sneak peak of the first page last week…and it made me cry. 😭 I‘ve recovered…I think…and I‘m ready to go back in. Can‘t wait to see where Vaughan & Staples take the story next…

Onward through my SAGA reread, with a ginger cookie beer to keep me company!

This is the volume where I began to suspect Vaughan & Staples were trying to kill me. (Vol 4 confirmed it. Those devious bastards.) What an awesome series. I have TOO MANY THOUGHTS for 451 characters, y‘all. I‘ll save the big one for the next volume & just gush/cry/scream here.

Apparently I backed up all my photos from my last phone on Google photos. Not sure how, but look what I found... me with Brian K. Vaughan at Travelling Man, York 😁 (about 5 years ago)

I was so starstruck that I forgot to beg him not to let anything happen to Ghüs 🦭

wisherwishinguponastar That is so cool! He has so many great comics he has helped create!!! 2y
DaveGreen7777 I‘m alway so nervous with his series because BKV does so love his tragic endings! ? If anything bad does happen to Ghüs, I‘ll inform him that I will no longer read his books… and then I‘ll be sure to read the very next book he puts out! ? 2y
RaeLovesToRead @wisherwishinguponastar He is my fave! 😊😊 2y
RaeLovesToRead @DaveGreen7777 I tell you what... you have my WhatsApp... please message me if anything happens to a) Ghüs or b) Lying Cat. I would need to go in mentally prepared!!!! 😅😅 Sometimes I do wish he'd let some characters have a bit more screen time before tragically killing them off. 2y

41 books in May…the last such month for a while as I head off to my 7 week archaeological excavation later this month. Reading the script for the first issue of Saga was a real highlight—seeing the process is really cool. Lots of good Star Wars leading up to Obi-Wan Kenobi. Fantastic graphic novel about the Dust Bowl & Zachary Ying was a super fun MG. The Great Mistake, The Sweetness of Water and Fire Season were other favorites.

NO SPOILERS HERE!

Didn't quite manage a midnight reading (working mum needs sleep 😴) but did eagerly devour this over breakfast. So glad it's back, so happy to be back with these characters. Still slightly stunned to be back without certain characters...

The artwork is amazing. I love the changes to Alana.

And as for the writing...oh, Mr Brian, you're gonna break my heart again, aren't you?

AND I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

I haven‘t posted in a while because I haven‘t read much lately (typical for me towards the end of the year). I‘ve only read four books since October - all graphic novels or manga.

BUT I stopped by Barnes & Noble today to take advantage of their 50% off all hardcovers sale and I wanted to share what I picked up. I‘m most excited about grabbing the three hardcover Saga omnibuses. I also bought a horror-themed board game!📚

CuriousG Saga is the best! 3y

Continuing this odd journey. This is a unique world the authors have created, with creatures from depths I don‘t understand. At any rate, it manages to intrigue me and so I‘ll continue to read this story for a bit longer. Definitely for adults only. I‘ll count it towards my #scarathlon2021 #teamhendrix @StayCurious

This is a very ADULT graphic novel. The art is gorgeous and the storyline (lovers from enemy races come together and make a baby and then struggle to find a home where they are not hunted) is a solid one.

I continue to have mixed feelings on this series. Oh, the internal conflict. I enjoy the story & art style & am admittedly intrigued. I do still have reservations about the whole space war/alien thing, but I guess it's growing on me? I also get oddly embarrassed every time I come to adult content. Maybe it's the mix of cartoon with nudity that weirds me out? Still, I am liking my read & won't abandon the series. I'm riding this train to the end.

I‘m so glad I finally reread this series and I might read again too.

A story about impossible love. The planet Landfall is at war with its moon Wreath. Alana, a wing from Landfall falls in love with Marko, a horn from Wreath. They have a baby girl. And suddenly both their sides are after them, several assassins and journalists.

A modern Romeo and Juliet story. Can‘t wait to read the rest of this story and I hope the hiatus is over soon.

Buechersuechtling Sounds like a good hiatus cure. Good luck – and feel better soon. 3y
AnneCecilie @Buechersuechtling I was thinking about the creators of this comic who went on a hiatus and stopped writing the rest of the story. It‘s suppose to get a continuation. 3y
Buechersuechtling @AnneCecilie Oh. You know, this misunderstanding is completely my fault. I confused “hiatus” with “hiccup”. 😂 (Which is funny, isn‘t it❓) 3y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This volume was wild. You get to meet Markos ex-girlfriend and so many other characters. This series continues to impress me and I have 4 – 9 on hold at the library. Volume 3 is full of action and I‘m gonna be honest I don‘t know what to make of the tv head species. You get to see more of the story from the prince robot and its weird, but so good.

I wrote this a week and a half ago and I‘m laughing at how bad this review is.

So.. I am surprised I didn't explore this series sooner. I love it! I want to say I enjoy it better than Papergirls (even though I really really enjoyed Papergirls)

But I mean... is there a reasons to rank them... No! So yeah I love it anyway. I think this is the last one for today. I am going to download the next one so that I can read it during my lunch break at work tomorrow (fingers crossed I get one)...

Wow I did not know these were so good...gross and gory and vulgar... But so good.
I absolutely love the art style. Everything is really beautiful. And all the different species remind me of Doctor Who (and old Sci-Fi). It's just so different. I love it.

Trigger warning: it is extremely graphic! There's a lot of sex and violence.

Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples's Saga continues to epitomize all that is glorious about fantasy for me: it's so, so real. This series confronts the issues that are super relevant right. now. . . . just in space and with aliens. We're talking abortion and war and violence and screens and love and creation. It's gorgeous and sad and sexy and perfect. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod I don't want to give anything away for someone who hasn't picked up Volume 1 yet, but the saga and the series' heart focuses on the love story between Marko and Alana, an inter-species couple from a warring planet and moon, and their daughter, Hazel. One of my favorite things ever. 5y
