I’m excited to finally find a graphic novel I enjoy and look forward to continuing!
I love the main characters and the fact that they’re parents. As a parent myself that was very relatable. Thankfully I don’t have to juggle bounty hunters, galactic war, and friendly ghosts on top of the trials of being a new parent. These two lovers are sort of the Romeo and Juliet of this story, they were previously on opposite sides of a war that has been going on for centuries until fate brought them together. Now they’re on the run, searching for a safe place in the galaxy to raise their child.
All the different races were a little confusing but really interesting, and the spider-woman mercenary is my favorite. I’m a little confused about who is on which side but overall the storyline is much easier to follow than other graphic novels I’ve read. I’m hoping that as I read further volumes I will come to understand the world better. The is also a sort of narration from the child’s future perspective. I really like it; it’s a unique addition to the story. One thing I always enjoy in graphic novels which is also present in Saga is the humor. It’s the kind of humor I appreciate. The artwork was good, but not my favorite of the graphic novels I’ve read, the story is stronger though and that’s more important to me. I can’t wait to see where this family go, and what perils and adventures await them!
