Y: The Last Man, takes his readers on another epic adventure with Saga. In his latest creation, he takes us into a world of science fiction, one filled with an inter-galactic war. As fighting surrounds everyone, two very unlikely lovers fight to bring their newborn child to a safe and peaceful place. However, they find it to be a difficult task when multiple groups are on the hunt for the AWOL soldiers and newbie parents. Thankfully, they meet a very unlikely ally along the way, but will that be enough to get them to safe grounds?
Saga brings us non-stop action in a world filled with war, but it also brings us love and laughter. Tensions rise, and yet the two main characters ground us with a single comment. Monsters, mayhem, and mad good illustrations and writing has this reader excited to move on to Volume 2 and the next adventures.
Saga recently won the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story. After reading it, I can totally understand why it would receive this award. It is a well-deserved honor.
