Interesting graphic novel about a goat guy, a winged woman, the product of their love and a disemboweled ghost. All from another world. I am interested to see where this story goes. ( )

It took me three days to read this volume. Not because it was boring or because I didn't have time to read it. It took me three days to read it because I wanted it to last. I didn't want it to be a fast read. I wanted to savour it, make it last, enjoy every page, the art, the story. EVERYTHING! It got humor, love, action and some really good art.

I loved this graphic novel. I mean this is the first I have bought in a long time. And, I bought it because of all I ever saw was people praising it. Any you know what? They are all right it is that good! There are many reviews out there that are very good, describing the story with images everything. But I just want to say that I enjoyed reading it very much and it is now looking very good in a prominent place on my bookshelf.



I ordered volume 2 today after I finished volume 1. Should probably have ordered them all when I think about it. ( )

Whenever a graphic novel starts out on another planet, showing a woman giving birth, you know it's going to be busy! I found Saga through Instagram and I'm so glad I did! It's a fast paced read, with EXCELLENT graphics and a story that's focused while bringing various elements into the fold.

I love Alana and Marko already. They're likable and cool, because their in a- Oh, I don't know... an interplanetary relationship? They're born of warring planets, yet there's something that convinced them they need to be together. That didn't stop them from falling in love and marrying- and conceiving a child.
Picture
Told through the memories of their unnamed daughter, the story takes you on an adventure of a couple on the run, and many groups wanting to see them dead, to possess their special child.

Many people, many many people, have recommended this, and so I had initially avoided it. But there I was in Faraos Cigarer in Copenhagen, and I picked out Starlight as worth a read and all the graphic novels I really wanted were upstairs and by Moebius and in Danish… so I eventually succumbed and bought the first volume of Saga. I could have bought the Danish bandes dessinées by Moebius, of course, or even the hardback volumes of Valerian and Laureline, also in Danish, but it would mean learning a new language to read them, which seems daft when they’re originally French and that’s a language I can actually read (with a dictionary at hand, admittedly). Anyway, Saga… I didn’t like it. I really didn’t. It is allegedly a space opera, but there’s zero rigour to the setting, one side uses magic, there are a race of robots who have human bodies but TVs for heads, and people actually use mobile phones and apps. See, you have a man and a woman, from each side of a generational war – one lot have wings, the others have horns – and they have a child. Er, so why do you need science fiction to tell this story? I guess calling a race war story a “space opera” makes it more palatable to readers. And, of course, it means the story is not “politicized”. FFS. So there you have it: weak title, paper-thin allegory, paper-thin setting, and a total lack of rigour. Nice art, though. ( )

As good as everyone says! I'm not a graphic novel/comic book reader, but this space opera is stunning and captivating. ( )
