Darren Aronofsky's new film also inspired a graphic novel adaptation. Is it worth a read?

"fascinating reading, pairing an imaginative storyteller with one of the best artists in the comics business for a new spin on one of humanity's oldest stories."

Saga #9 Review- The Will Strikes Back

Saga #9 Review- The Will Strikes Back | Saga Reviews | Scoop.it

Vaughn continues to craft a masterful story, one that throws loops and surprises at the most unexpected of times. Staples is the perfect fit for the title, as her art is a sketchy, modern style that brings the world to life so wonderfully. I honestly can’t imagine another artist on this book, not after the nine issues of pure visual gold she has provided. Though this issue places the focus squarely on The Will, it is still a vital part of the ongoing world. Highly recommended, I give Saga #9 a perfect @@@@@ out of FIVE.

Saga, v.1, by Brian K. Vaughan | Booklist Online

Saga, v.1, by Brian K.  Vaughan | Booklist Online | Saga Reviews | Scoop.it
Booklist Online Book Review: Saga, v.1.Vaughan, Brian K. (author).Illustrated by Fiona StaplesOct. 2012. 160p. Image Comics, paperback, $9.99 (9781607066019). 741.5.
Image Comics's insight:

Vaughan, writer of the hugely successful Y: The Last Man, isn’t one to think small. In this opener to his ambitious new series, bits of sf space opera and classic fantasy mesh in setting a sprawling stage for an intensely personal story of two lovers, cleverly narrated by their newborn daughter. Though recently soldiers from opposite sides of a massive intergalactic war, moth-winged Alana and ram-horned Marko simply want peace and anonymity to raise their daughter (an abomination to the powers that be) away from conflict and hatred. Vaughan’s whip-snap dialogue is as smart, cutting, and well timed as ever, and his characters are both familiar enough to acclimate easily to and deep enough to stay interested in as their relationships bend, break, and mend. While Vaughan will be the star power that attracts readers, do-it-all artist Staples is going to be the one who really wows them. Her character designs dish out some of the best aliens around, the immersive world-crafting is lushly detailed and deeply thought through, and the spacious layouts keep the focus squarely on the personal element, despite the chaotic cosmos they inhabit. Add another winner to Vaughan’s stable of consistently epic, fresh, and endearing stories.— Ian Chipman

There's only a few artists and writers I'll call myself a "fanboy" of. Obviously, I'm a BKV fanboy, and now, I can finally come out and say I'm a Fiona Staples fanboy. I know every month this book comes out, I praise some of the awesome/gross things she does in each issue, and I mean every word of it. I love her style and her color usage. Staples and BKV are a great team.

GEEKROCKER: Saga Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan | Features and Interviews | Artrocker | Saga Reviews | Scoop.it

Brian K. Vaughan’s Saga, Volume 1 collects the first six chapters of this ongoing series published by Image Comics. Vaughan’s space opera/sci-fi epic amalgamates elements of classic science fiction and fantasy, with the series being described as “Star Wars meets Game of Thrones” - it’s pretty hard to ignore a title with a description like that!
