Saga is an epic comic, set elsewhere in the galaxy, featuring an interstellar war between species, bounty hunters, a decent amount of sex, and a fair few quests

But most importantly? It’s a story of parenthood, and a story of growing up. In the first few pages of the first issue, a child is born. That puts a lot of people off the story, as you do get to see the birth, but don’t be squeamish. The child that is born, who is also a part-time narrator from the future, is the daughter of two different species, who just so happen to be the ones at war, so immediately the family are forced on the run

And that’s all i’ll tell you about the story. Saying much more would be saying too much, and would take away from the experience. But I’ll say this. It’s written by Brian K. Vaughan, who wrote Runaways and Y: The Last Man, and has spectacular art by Fiona Staples, who is currently doing an excellent job on the new Archie run, and the combination of those pair should be enough to tell you that the comic is worth reading
