Review~Saga #2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

SPOILERS of SAGA #1

Goodreads Synopsis

Saga is sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. Thanks to her star-crossed parents Marko and Alana, newborn baby Hazel has already survived lethal assassins, rampaging armies, and horrific monsters, but in the cold vastness of outer space, the little girl encounters her strangest adventure yet… grandparents.

I cannot get enough of this series. The art style, the story, the colours, the world. Everything just comes together so naturally and I can’t wait to read more of this fantastic series.  Warning: For Mature adults only as it contains sexual content, nudity and swearing. 

On volume 2, we continue with the adventure after Marko’s parents made an unexpected visit on Alana and Marko’s spaceship and found out about their marriage and the baby.  While flying through the galaxy to find D. Oswald Heist, the author of Alana’s favourite book, they have encounted more obstacles that have altered their journey. Angry parents, a missing friend, an ex fiance with a grudge, a free lancer and a monster ready to suck both of the ships into a dark abyss.

While this volume shows the continuation of their adventure, it also gives an insight on Marko’s childhood where he remembers his connection with his parents and what was it like to be home with them, there is also a glimpse on how Alana and Marko first met and seeing their relationship progress, however their relationship does bring out their individual characteristics, Alana is very logical, for example: she doesn’t think it is a good idea to have a child in a middle of a warzone while Marko thinks more spiritually, believing having a child, particularly a star-crossed child could be a symbol of hope.

Their relationship is one of the main reasons why I love this series. Both of them show they really do love each other while dealing with struggles together, both individually and as a couple. I probably said this in the last review but Alana and Marko seems very relatable when it comes to being a married couple with a child to take care of. Having different opinions and learning from each other, it seems refreshing to see them fight and disagree and not just them always happy and looking like they have a perfect relationship as I see in most books.

Again the artist did an incredible job on visually capturing characters expressions, having different lightings and shadows to give contrast on the environments, various tones and colours that makes the illustrations eye-catching without making it bright for your eyes and the details on both the environment and the characters are on point.

I am going to give this volume 5/5 for both the story and the illustration. I will see if I can save my money to buy more volumes so I can continue with the series.
