Review - Saga Volume 1

“When two soldiers from opposite sides of a neverending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe.”

This has been on my to-read radar for a while. I don’t read a lot of graphic novels (no particular reason, it just doesn’t usually occur to me), but I figured it would be a quick read - which it was - and it was also awesome.

It starts with the star-crossed lovers having a baby and then immediately going on the run from both sides of the conflict.

There are a lot of near-misses, and mercenaries with names like The Will and The Stalk on their tail.

The story is narrated from the baby - Hazel’s point of view as her parents do everything in their power to escape and find a safe haven where they can find some peace.

Nothing, of course, is ever that simple.

It’s a great, sweeping sci-fi story with a very heartfelt tale right at the centre of it, which means it never feels out of reach.
