When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe.
From bestselling writer Brian K. Vaughan, Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in this sexy, subversive drama for adults.
Saga is set in a fantasy world, dominated by war. There are two sides, the Planet Landfall and its Moon, Wreath. The world is then divided and every Planet has to choose a side.
This volume is about Marko and Alana, two soldiers from opposite sides of the war that fall in love and have a baby together. I loved the two main characters. They were strong together and I loved their dynamic.
The story had different sides and, even though the main characters were Alana and Marko, it focused on other characters too. I don’t know which side story I preferred but it was definitely interesting to read the different sides of the story.
I love that, in this comic, there aren’t “good guys” or “bad guys” because there wasn’t good side of the war.
I was scared to read this comic because of all the hype. I was hesitant to read it but my roommate said that I would like it so I picked it up. I was pleasantly surprised, I love it. It was full of action and the plot was compelling. I was hooked the whole time and I hope I can read the next volume soon.
