Saga: volume one

I’ve heard so much about this comic book, and now I’ve finally read the first volume 🙂

The art in the book was incredible, it’s like the pictures are almost coming to life when you look at them.

The story starts with the birth of Hazel. Hazel is also the narrator of the story, which was a thing that could have been weird in the beginning since she wasn’t even born when the book/story starts. But it wasn’t weird, it felt kind of natural. She tells the story of herself, and her parents. Her mother has wings and her father has horns, and she inherits both of those things. In some ways it’s a space-adventure, but there are also a big war going on (and it’s been going on for quite a while before Hazel comes into the picture). I read it as a story about family, about a Lying cat, a rocketship that goes where it wants to (though, you can ask nicely for it to go where you want, if it likes you it might happen).

This is a short review, but then, the book isn’t that long either.

I liked the art and the story, and I can’t wait to read the next three volumes in the serie. (It does have some scenes involving sex that are quite graphic, so if you don’t like that, don’t read it)
