Topic: Saga. A comic

Are any of you guys reading Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples? It's one of the best series I've read in a very long time. I first came across Vaughan about five years ago when I started reading "Y The Last Man"

Saga follows Marko and Alana, two soldiers from opposite sides of a galactic war who have just had a baby in the middle of a war zone. I really don't know what I can compare the tone with, It has some very graphic scenes but not done for vulgarity or a whim. There was some fuss made this week about a character with a TV for a head being injured and images of gay porn appearing on his screen.

So yeah, Alana and Marko are basically on the run from bounty hunters, two armies and a Robot Prince on a spaceship that's actually a tree.

and their baby sitter is a ghost.

None of the elements should work but some how come together when put in the same comic.

It's like kind of like Star Wars with the whimsy of Doctor Who with added WTF.

Re: Saga. A comic

Saga is my absolute favorite monthly comic right now.  One of the few I still by in singles (versus trades).  Staples' art is fantastic - the piece she did on her process a few issues back was so cool.  I'm gushing a bit.  I hope it gets an oversized hardcover treatment in the future like Darwyn Cooke's Parker or I Kill Giants.

Y: The Last Man being my favorite comic ever, it's a given that I'm gonna read this at some point. I'm really just waiting to get into it so that I can binge through as much as possible in one sitting.
