I did not like this, and I don't understand why people make such a big deal about it.

This book has had a lot of hype for years. A lot of what I heard was by people who said, "I normally don't read comics, but Saga is great," or "I normally don't read SF, but Saga is great." Maybe that's the problem because what they praise as SO ORIGINAL was just not exciting to me. Two people from warring factions fall in love (snore).

I got the first two volumes of Saga via a Humble Bundle. I’d heard murmurings of approval before this and it was the main reason I got the comic bundle. I was not disappointed.

I loved the humour and sarcasm. Baby Hazel sort of narrates (she’s telling the story in hindsight, don’t worry). There’s the trials of looking after a baby whilst on the run.

He looks a bit like a very large Devon Rex and will point out whenever someone is lying.

Stunning artwork too. I loved all the different creatures and races. If you’re offended by drawn genitalia, you might want to avoid. There’s not a lot, but there is some. Plus Sextillion …
