I don't normally read graphic novels but I was in the mood for something different and the Saga series came highly recommended by several friends so I took a chance on it. Let me just say it was so amazingly good that by the time I was 3 chapters in I had purchased the rest of the series!
So what can you look forward to in this book? A forbidden love story between aliens from two warring races, a hybrid baby that everyone wants to kill, assassins, alien brothels, cats that can tell if you're lying, people with TVs for heads, a tree shaped spaceship, ghost children, a freaky woman/spider hybrid and so much more.
The artwork is stunning, the dialogue is witty, the world is dark and the humour is even darker. This is definitely an adult series - it opens with a birth scene and goes on to include sex scenes and plenty of graphic violence - but it's brilliant and totally addictive. There is just so much creativity in this graphic novel and I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
I'll leave you with a few images of some of my favourite characters just to give you an example of the artwork you'll find inside:
Marco, Alana & Hazel
Lying Cat and The Will
