Saga Volume One | Graphic Novel Book Review

Saga is the first independent graphic novel I’ve ever read. As a young child I did read some Doctor Who comics but they were heavily based on the images we get in the TV programme. Saga is completely different and a solid five out of five stars for me!

I picked up this book because my favourite booktuber @clockwork_reads recommended it. This book really surprised me because I thought that I wouldn’t really like the graphic novel format. It was a quick read with some deep themes and emotional rollercoasters! I love how the family theme was prominent and that it was told from the perspective of the child.

I’m very impatient to read the next one because we were left on a weird cliffhanger! It wasn’t a bad ending but also not ‘happily ever after’. I think that it will be interesting the learn more about these worlds and the politics of them! For me, it had a few Star Wars vibes with the morals being similar and technology being on the same levels. I can’t say much about Saga without going into spoilers and I wouldn’t like to do that.

I’m not a big sci-fi fanatic so this really exceeded my expectations. I can’t recommend this book enough! It has some sexual themes so please be careful if that’s not your cup of tea. I hope that this series continues to be amazing because I hate to be disappointed by sequels. I’ll definitely be getting the next few soon!
