“SAGA is sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. Thanks to her star-crossed parents Marko and Alana, newborn baby Hazel has already survived lethal assassins, rampaging armies, and horrific monsters, but in the cold vastness of outer space, the little girl encounters her strangest adventure yet… grandparents.”
This is a highly entertaining continuation of the Saga series. When Marko’s grandparents show up and accidentally banish Marko and Alana’s ghostly babysitter onto a different world it’s up to Marco to travel there and get her back. Meanwhile Alana gets some quality time with her father in law.
Marko’s ex-fiance also enters the picture and ends up joining forces with The Will. We also get some backstory on Alana and Marko and how they meet and got involved.
The story is fast-paced and the illustration and color are very well done. It’s easy to follow and I am loving the characters and the action. This is a very adult graphic novel, so I would recommend for mature (17+ readers) only.
Overall this was a wonderful continuation of the Saga series and I can’t wait to read the next one. I would recommend to adults who enjoy science fiction graphic novels with a lot of action and complex characters.
