Comic Book Review: Saga - Issue 1 - Image Comics(2012)

Title: Saga 
Issue Number: 1
Writer: Brian K. Vaughn
Artist: Fiona Staples

Lovers that, by all accounts, should not be together are on the run hiding not just for themselves but for their newborn daughter.  Saga is a story told as a historical account by the daughter of these lovers who are on opposite sides of an on-going battle.  The first issue gives us birth, battles and introductions into not just the characters on the run, but also those that are hunting them down.  Oh yeah, and our main characters find a treasure map!  With violence, nudity and strong language, this book is definitely intended for mature readers.

One issue in and I’m really looking forward to reading more!  I’m late getting to the party on this one but I’m hoping to catch up pretty quick so that I may follow monthly.  Brian K. Vaughn continues to prove why he is one of the greatest writers in the world of comic books with this extraordinary introductory issue.  Fiona Staples’ art goes incredibly well with Vaughn’s story with species of characters that range from horned heads to winged backs to television monitors for heads.  Staples’ art is truly on point with her ability to invoke so much emotion into facial expressions of the characters.  This book is an absolute joy!
