Saga Volume 1 | Brian K Vaughan

Why didn‘t I read this sooner?! I am so in love already. I just got the first volume today from the library, not knowing how long a volume is— now I need to get volumes 1-10! Gorgeous fantasy world building, relatable characters and dialogue and social commentary, stunning art. Ahhhh I‘m so excited to dive in to this fandom!

Saga vol. 10 | Brian K. Vaughan

Tonight I ate fake shakshuka and caught up on SAGA (aside from the issue that just came out).

Man. MY EMOTIONS. As always, I was glad to have the issues instead of the trade because the lettercols gave me such a great release of tension after each gut punch of a chapter. Staples and Vaughan would be all, “[Redacted awful thing],” and some random letter writer would be all, “[Charming yet spoilery thing],” and my heart felt a smidge better.

Saga Vol. 9 | Brian K. Vaughan

I finished my 9-day SAGA reread this afternoon. In related news, I wept a whole lot.

I‘m gonna use A MAN AND HIS CAT to regulate my emotions before I read Vol 10 for the first time. People seem to agree it‘s both charming and heartbreaking, though, so this might backfire on me. Stay tuned for further comics-induced weeping, maybe?

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

SAGA is one of the best ever graphic novels aside from the Sandman of course. I honestly cannot believe how much they can pack into each volume.

The characters, the story, the monsters, the creativity and wow, the social commentary is brilliant! Whoever would have thought of Dung Monsters lol!

Some of the best characters are the Robots and their square TV heads which use pictures to show emotions. Love that!

Saga Vol. 6 | Brian K. Vaughan
post image

Today my SAGA reread brought me back to the Tickle Trunk. Which, I‘ll remind you, I MET ONCE.

Yeah. That‘s right. I stood right in front of the Tickle Trunk. I TOUCHED IT. That HAPPENED.

Everyone who was a small Canadian child in the late 80s/early 90s is all, “OMG!!!”

Everyone else is all, “The hell does that even mean?”

I hope Fiona Staples throws Ananas into the mix someday, too, to round out the Canadian Childhood References.

xicanti (Okay, I might‘ve made up the touching thing. It was a very long time ago and I don‘t remember if it was behind plexiglass or what. I was so overcome I didn‘t even take a picture of it, though I did get one of Casey and Finnegan. They definitely weren‘t touchable.) 1w
Singout Wow! I just posted the Friendly Giant intro on FB today for an American/Canadian friend who was sharing dollhouse photos and not getting the Rusty and Jerome jokes. 1w
xicanti @Singout all these shows that loom so large! The Friendly Giant stopped making new episodes before my TV years so I might‘ve had to reach for Rusty and Jerome, but I definitely would‘ve recognized the man himself. 1w

Saga, Vol. 4 | Brian K. Vaughan

Fireside SAGA tonight!

I love first person narrators because you can‘t fully trust them, and Hazel is one of my favourites because she KNOWS that. She takes her extensive knowledge of how stories work and has a blast manipulating the reader with double meanings and foreshadowing designed to mislead. She never lies to us, but what we hear isn‘t always what she‘s said. It‘s glorious. I love it so damned much.

After a three year hiatus (in this world and theirs), Hazel, Squire, and Alana return with friends new and villains old in this collection of six issues. I love how funny this series is while eviscerating me, heart and soul. I would follow these characters to any planet, moon, planetoid, or pirate ship.

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…

ju.ca.no Love Saga but 💔💔💔 (edited) 2w

#NCBD!!!

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.

[insert gushy scream-crying]
