Saga #2

Didn't see a thread on this so here goes.



First off, the world is a better place when I'm getting a Vaughn comic.

The art on this is outstanding and I think the story is going to be very bloody the whole way through.

Didn't see the Dad getting capped that quick. I wonder if they're going to do more with him based on what we saw in the last panel?

It's looking like the story might be more about the bounty hunter than the kid imo.

Well, I'm sure eventually the stories of The Will and the baby girl will meet.

I think it's funny BKV encourages people to tear a page of the comic out and mail it to him.

I really dug the design of The Stalker.

She is kind of a stalker, but wasn't it just The Stalk?

That part was pretty cool.

Yeah I think your right.

Hopefully she'll be around for an arc or two.

This planet they are on is crazy. I'm still a little fuzzy on what is what with the conflicts at work, maybe I need to read the first issue over again.

After the much-hyped #1, Saga now has to demonstrate how the series is going to work going forwards. And on the basis of this issue, it’s going to work really well. BKV throws in a load more crazy concepts into the mix here, and I just dig how fucking weird this Universe he’s created is, Magic that can only cast by telling a secret, a weird spider-assassin, a train that looks like a dragon, an agent that’s a sea-hors. It’s just mad. I just hope that there is some logic behind this and BKV isn’t doing a ‘ninja zombie dragon robot pirate’ thing like what was the trend a few years back. But I reckon we can rest easy on that score, Vaughan has always imbued his high-concepts with real depth and I think this is no exception. This is demonstrated by how well-developed the characters of Marko and Alana already feel, and how I’m already invested in them. This is accomplished not only through strong dialogue, but also the clever technique of the infant daughter’s narration. Fiona Staples’ art was once again top-notch, it’s great that whatever craziness BKV throws her way, she takes it in her stride and makes it look awesome and fit in a world that kind of makes sense. Did anyone fill-out the questionnaire in the back? Some mental questions!
