was one of those comics I saw recommended even on book blogs, and in my comics binge this holiday I picked it up before I headed out.
The art is good, even if the story is a little Farscape
. Actually, it's super Farscape
but I actually could get into Saga
. There are two alien species who have been fighting for centuries, eventually outsourcing their war somewhere else, until a Romeo/Juliet meet up in a prison changes all of this. Alana and Marek escape, have a baby, and are on the run.
That's just the first few panels of the first issue.
I'm not sure if it's just me, but while the story is good and the art incredible, there are a lot of naked people and it threw me off a few times. I get that it's an artistic choice and everything, but for some reason it's still more shocking to me in visual form than just when it's written. It's not a big deal, but this is definitely not The Amazing Spider-Man
Otherwise, it's an amazing beginning to a comics series of which I want to read more.
