What's to say about Saga that hasn't already been covered, from every Amazon reviewer to its Eisner Award win? Certainly not that it's already bested Brian K. Vaughan's excellent Ex Machina and Y: The Last Man. Or that Vaughan and Fiona Staples had created an instant classic from the very first issue. For the uninitiated, Saga tells the story of Alana and Marko, members of two warring alien races that choose to abandon the fight and raise a child together. Regardless of your feelings on sci-fi and fantasy, or preconceived notions of what a comic book can (or should) be, Saga will win you over. More than an interstellar adventure, it's a story about family and parenting that also happens to be hilarious, tragic, frightening, and edge-of-your-seat exciting. And it's only gotten better.
