Saga; Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

Brian K. Vaughan is most known to discriminating comic book readers for his Y The Last Man and Ex Machina (he also did Runaways and Doctor Strange The Oath for Marvel). Today, with artist Fiona Staples, Vaughan debuts his new series, Saga, at Image, and it's going to be one of the most talked about, anticipated comics of the year!

Saga's three central characters are right here on the cover, with the first issue being narrated by Hazel (the daughter), from the future. This is a story about two people who reject their appointed roles in a planetary war, who fell in love and are just trying to find a peaceful place to raise their daughter. Brian K. Vaughan is a master at page-turning, cliff-hanger comics, with great characters and with artist Fiona Staples, we finally get another regular dose (Vaughan hasn't written a comic in years) and I'm sure that everyone will be on the edge of their seats awaiting each issue of Saga!

I really loved it. Lots of interesting characters and the depiction of the birth, nursing, etc. was spot on. Thanks for holding me a copy!
