Saga, Volume 1

Saga, Volume 1 - This novel gets off on solely its eccentricity and characters. In the way of plot, it just has a beginning and then run, run, run for your lives!The art is just fabulous. There is this The Stalk creature and it's just the most wondrous thing I've seen in a while. There are so many things that don't go along and feel clunky if you look at it as a whole, and I suppose that's the major falling point.But the rest of it? It's like the progeny of weird, quirky and funny-gross.Moreover, it's got a 'cool' pair of star-crossed lovers and rocketship plants.(Plants that grow spaceships.)What's not to like?Maybe TV's humping each other- I suppose it's actually disturbing. But one can easily find that hilarious and overlook the disgusting if you've got the right mindset.I do.
