Saga is far and above my favorite graphic novel series. It's one of the best adventures I've ever been on. Its setting is a galaxy entwined in the war between one planet and its moon, and the main character is a child whose parents are defectors from each side of the war. It is full of amazing characters (some of my favorites being the Lying Cat, a big blue cat who knows when people are lying, and Izabel the ghost babysitter, and also every other character). It's also got equally amazing settings, and heartwrenching story dips that will, and I'm not kidding, just wrench the hell out of your heart. The narrative that Vaughan and Staples have put together is bonkers and simply incredible. ALSO, it's been on hiatus for nearly three years but it's finally coming back in January. All I ask is that you start reading it so that you can understand what great news that is.
