Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Updated: Nov 12, 2020

Saga is an epic space opera/fantasy comic book series created by writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples, published monthly by Image Comics. The series is heavily influenced by Star Wars, and based on ideas Vaughan conceived both as a child and as a parent. It depicts two lovers from long-warring extraterrestrial races, Alana and Marko, fleeing authorities from both sides of a galactic war as they struggle to care for their newborn daughter, Hazel, who occasionally narrates the series.

If you haven't read graphic novels before, but you enjoy Sci-fi and dystopian war stories, I highly recommend this series. It was my first graphic novel experience, and I adore both the writing and the illustrations. They are real and fantastic at the same time. Want to know what I mean? Well, for example, after Alana has a baby, the illustrations show her saggy tummy along with her alien wings. Real, beautiful, and alien all at the same time.

If you're wondering, the series is not complete, but is on extended hiatus. Read more about it here.
