Pick of the Week – Saga #1

I have no idea how to describe Saga #1, the new sci-fi series from the mind of Brian K. Vaughn.  I’ve dug the numerous series he’s worked on in the past and I’m convinced this will be up there with the rest of his works.  The series sees two forbidden lovers on the run from the forces that want to kill them and take their child.  There’s very much a Star Wars feel as far as look, but the world imagined looks impressive.  That’s helped with the fantastic art by Fiona Staples.

I’ve read the first issue and this one’s a no brainer, it’s that damn good and an absolute must buy.

  • Saga #1 – see above
  • Thief of Thieves #2 –  That first issue was great and the ending was a nice twist.  I was hooked and want to see what happens next.
  • The Strain #4 – We’ve seen this vampire tale before, but it’s so damn good.
  • Tranformers: More Than Meets the Eye #3 – The two Transformers series from IDW have been excellent and are great for old and new fans alike.
  • Saucer Country #1 – Vertigo is getting some new series and this is the first of the bunch that has something to do with a politician and aliens.  It’s a given for me.
