Saga by Brian K Vaughan

Saturday, December 8th, 2012

I’ll be honest, I haven’t been this effusive over a comic since Spacetrawler. I am totally loving Saga, it is one of the best comics out there right now. I’ll admit I’m loving Adventure Time (Ryan North Woo!) and the monthly wait for the next issue of Walking Dead is always such a pain. And Lookouts (the penny-arcade spinoff) is pretty frakking fantastic, but there is something amazing, and real, and empathetic about Saga that you just don’t see in other comics very often, or even books. It reminds me in some ways of Sandman, at least in that the basic premise is so crazy and outside anything you might expect, yet everyone in it from “good guys” to “bad” seems to be a real person, not just a cartoon cutout or an opportunity to show off some boobs/butts.

Seriously, if you’ve got a local comic shop go hit them up. If not check your local book stores or just buy the first trade (issues 1-6) from amazon. Whatever you’ve got to do, do it and get your hands on this. You won’t regret it… well unless you’re offended by nudity (which there is some of), violence (some of), or good story (lots of).
