BLURB: 

 

From award-winning writer Brian K. Vaughan (Pride of Baghdad, Ex Machina) and critically acclaimed artist Fiona Staples (Mystery Society, Done to Death), Saga is sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. Thanks to her star-crossed parents Marko and Alana, newborn baby Hazel has already survived lethal assassins, rampaging armies, and horrific monsters, but in the cold vastness of outer space, the little girl encounters her strangest adventure yet… grandparents.

REVIEW: 

 

The second installment in this Space Opera style Graphic Novel takes off right where the first novel left off… with a bang. Plot points introduced in the first novel were expanded upon in the second volume and begin to flesh out this wide scope of a story.

Having the narrator as the infant daughter of the two protagonists retelling her parents story is a nice touch and puts into perspective a story with such a wide berth and all encompassing feeling. The development of these characters and introductions of new characters just adds to the overall atmosphere of this work.

As it is a Graphic Novel, art is important and the illustrator has gone all out in this book. The images are astounding and tell the story as well as the text. There is violence, nudity and graphic scenes which would make this novel for mature audiences, but, if you enjoy space operas and storylines like Firefly this is definitely a series you will want to try. It has blown me away.
