Saga Volume 1 (Saga (Comic Series)) (Paperback)
It’s hard for me to describe exactly why I love Saga by Vaughan and Staples. Is it because it’s about interstellar war between two galactic empires? Well, yes, of course. Is it because it’s not even secretly about the triumphs and setbacks of starting a family, of bringing a child into this world? Well, yes, most definitely. Is it because it’s funny, heartbreaking, joyful, and all the other emotions that define the human condition? Pretty much yes. OR IS IT BECAUSE IT JUST PLAIN RULES?!?!?!?! HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!— From Joe's Picks
