From the Hugo Award-winning duo of Brian K. Vaughan (The Private Eye, Y: The Last Man) and Fiona Staples (North 40, Red Sonja), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. Searching for their literary hero, new parents Marko and Alana travel to a cosmic lighthouse on the planet Quietus, while the couple's multiple pursuers finally close in on their targets.
Collecting: Saga 13-18.
It had been a bit since I had read the first two volumes but this next one pulls the reader right back into the story. Marko and Alana are still fleeing and on their way to locate an author, whom Alana believes will have some answers for them. In another story arc - The Will, Gwen and the little girl they rescued are stuck with a broken ship and there is something wrong with the food they ate. Overall this was a good issue - there was action and the diversity that I am really enjoying in these graphic novels as well as the ridiculousness that is occasionally thrown in (like a drunk man in his undies - yup that happened). If you are looking for a multi-story romance, political, sci-fi graphic novel series to jump into I am really enjoying this one so far.
