Saga #1

Saga #1 - Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples I read and review books on The Reading Picnic. Check it out!

So this graphic novel was super hyped to me by a few people, and I'll admit when I finished it last night I was curious what would happen next and committed to reading the others.

Now, I can't stop thinking about what happens next. This may be a problem.

I've never really been into graphic novels, I've read a few here and there, I think I read one about some Zodiac Chicks when I was in seventh grade, and they're beautiful and all, but I tend not to focus on how beautiful they are and focus on plot. Probably because I read novels like...24/7. But this was intriguing. I was promised Star Wars meets Game of Thrones, but I don't...honestly really see either of those. I see a world of it's entire own new creation. And it reminds me a bit of the world I've seen in [b:Zodiac|20821306|Zodiac (Zodiac, #1)|Romina Russell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1404743153s/20821306.jpg|40167162] and from what I've seen of "Battlestar Galactica". Maybe it's because too many things are said to be like GOT when...they really aren't and it's just to entice readers, but I digress.

Some of it was really funny, and some of it was very adult, and I enjoyed how those themes seemed to move flawlessly through the novel, and how easily you could move from one to the other. I find one of the most intriguing characters the freelancer who wants to save the six year old girl (whose name is currently escaping me). And I'll admit, I was ready for this to be cliché, and was usually sure how something would turn out but then it didn't, so that was refreshing.

Overall, I really enjoyed it, and I can't wait to get my hands on the next novels. I'm anxiously awaiting payday at this point. I honestly feel like this might be the year of graphic novels and manga for me. High four stars.
