Saga Lite

So I've mentioned a couple times here that I've been completely obsessed with the comic series Saga for the past year, ever since ladydorotea gave me the first TPB at NYCC. Some of you, I've tried to rope in so I can surround myself with more fans, but there's one objection to it that I understand really, really well: it's just too graphic for some readers. Hell, it's kinda too graphic for me. I put up with disgusting images or disturbing themes because I like the intensity that surrounds them, but I don't expect everyone to, by any means.

What to do? Well, I have a lot of the issues digitally, so it wasn't too hard to cut out some panels to share with you. These contain SPOILERS. Very big SPOILERS. If gore and sex don't bother you and you're planning on reading the series, or even curious about it, don't read this. Instead go here and read the first issue for free so you know if you want to continue.

If you don't want to risk it, here's some summary, some introduction, and a lot of single/double panels as illustration, all safe to look at without your partner looking over your shoulder and wondering if you're sick. Not much I could do about the language, though. All of the characters have pretty dirty mouths.

Once again: SPOILERS AHEAD!


The story revolves around the marriage of two characters, Marko and Alana, and their baby daughter.

Alana was a rather apathetic soldier for her home planet, Landfall.
saga52

She was more interested in reading trashy romance novels than fighting.
saga53

On the whole, though, she's a badass, especially when it comes to defending the people she loves.
saga78
saga06
saga56

Marko was a soldier too, but he came from Landfall's moon, Wreath.
saga61

He grew up to be a skilled warrior, but after he had seen a few battles he began to have doubts.
saga15

He's a badass too, but he's made a vow to never kill again.
saga72
saga67
saga77

Their baby, Hazel, narrates, making the whole thing a retrospective from her point of view.
saga54
saga23
saga63
saga104

Landfall, where all the natives have wings, is a wealthy planet with extremely advanced technology.
saga83
saga88

Wreath, where all the natives have horns, has a culture based on their use of magic.
saga85
saga57

Trouble is, the two worlds are enemies, and the battle between them has been raging across the entire solar system for so long that nobody remembers when it began.
saga87
saga62

The idea of Marko and Alana falling in love is unthinkable to both sides.
saga22
saga71
saga64

A child with both wings and horns would be considered an abomination, if anyone had ever heard of one.
saga74
saga81
saga68

Her parents have a different perspective.
saga69


That's the basic premise. In another entry I'll introduce you to some of the secondary characters, and put up a few of my favorite sequences. Let me know if you're enjoying this! There's nothing I like more than sharing the Saga love.
