Saga: An Image Comic

It is so easy to get wrapped up in the addictive story that is ‘Saga’. Although Will really despises the giant robot heads on the Robot Species, it’s a great ride haha! I have read it described as Star Wars meets Game of Thrones. It is a well-developed universe, in which husband and wife Alana and Marko flee galactic war with their newborn (at the start of the series) daughter, Hazel. Written by one of my favorite authors, Brian K Vaughan and drawn incredibly by the unreasonably talented Fiona Staples. We have gone so far as to cosplay as Alana and Marko, it’s that great and note-worthy of a book.

A few weeks ago we spent the day walking around the city, comic shopping and picking up some special Brunch Dumplings from Mimi Cheng’s (pretty good). Classic pork are even better. One of our rituals is to go to comic book stores together and browse, and although he has some issue with the series, if there is a new single issue or trade out he’ll always get it for me. Who the hell needs flowers when you’ve got comics, amiright ladies?!? In my opinion, anyway…
