I was shopping at Fully Booked with my boyfriend Jim when we bumped into our friend, beauty columnist Regina Belmonte. She saw us scoping out the graphic novel section of the store and eagerly recommended the comic book Saga. Since I trust her taste, I immediately got volumes 1 and 2.
Grabe, it’s so awesome!! It’s strange, sexy, funny, dark, disturbing – everything a comic book for adults should be.
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. This specially priced volume collects the first six issues of the smash-hit series The Onion A.V. Club calls “the emotional epic Hollywood wishes it could make.” Voted one of the top graphic novels of the year by the NYT, IGN, the Examiner, and SF Weekly. Voted Best Comic of the year by MTV Geek and Best New Series by Paradox Comics. Voted a finalist in the GoodReads Best GN of 2012 contest.
I am hoping a lot of you will also enjoy this so I’m giving away 5 copies of Saga Volume 1!
