Wow I just loved Saga! It had all the elements I wanted: diversity, beautiful albeit disturbing artwork, unique storyline, amazing characters, etc. I’ve seen this one floating around but was always hesitant to pick it up specifically because of the artwork. If I don’t like a graphic novels artwork I cannot continue reading. After all, half the enjoyment out of graphic novels is the artwork. I find some images to make my skin crawl (ie: human bodies with tv’s for heads) but decided to give it a shot anyways! I was surprised that the images didn’t freak me out as much as I thought they would and instead I found them powerful and truly a punch in the gut to make me think on a deeper level.
If you want to try something new and different check out Saga!
