Review of Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Title:  Saga: Volume 1
Author: Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
Source: Bought new
Series: Yes
Rating: 5/5

Goodreads Summary:
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 is one of the best graphic novels I have ever read. There is a ton of hype around this series right now and it deserves all of it and more. I love that this is an adult graphic novel, however it does deal with a lot of adult content so this is a book for a mature audience.

The book in a short summary is about two soldiers who are suppose to be enemies in a never ending war who fall in love and have a baby. The premise is a little strange but the story comes together in a beautiful way. This book can be consumed in a few hours but I strongly suggest you have the next book on hand because you will want to devour it immediately afterwards.

This is a short review because I really describe this book without giving things away. It is funny at times and sad at other times. I adored this a whole lot and I devoured the second book in about an hour also. This book has become a new favorite.
