Saga #1 | Writer: Brian K. Vaughan | Art: Fiona Staples | Colors: Fiona Staples | Publisher: Image Comics | Price: $2.99
Eisner award winner Brian K. Vaughn has produced an exquisite piece of writing that will no doubt raise the bar.
The story follows Marko and Alana, who are from opposing sides of an interplanetary war. Saga is narrated by the couples’ newborn child which is an interesting twist that in itself adds a level of depth to the plot. Fiona Staples’ artwork is without question the best of the week and does a magnificent job of expressing the emotion of moments throughout the book.
The protagonists aren’t a super mushy couple, which is refreshing, but they still love each other which provides readers with some entertaining dialog.
The book is double-sized for only $2.99 and I would have gladly paid more.
I can’t believe I just typed that. I can’t believe I typed any of this. I’m simply at a loss for words at how much this book reeks of awesomeness.
