Title:Saga, Volume 2

By: Brian K. Vaughan  (Author) , Fiona Staples (Illustrator)

This volume gives us a chance to look closer at the charactersintroduced in the first volume.  Thereaders are acquainted with an expanding family portrait showing a greaterdynamic thread between the core characters.  I read this volume back toback with the first.  There is absolutely no disconnect between each book.  Vaughan and Staples (author and illustrator) have kept the series lively and exciting.

Parts of this volume almost resemble Firefly, if it were lacedwith acid and mushrooms.  Other worldly humanoids in a rough and toughbattle to come out on top through the life of hired assassins and refugeeturmoil. The readers are taken though a loop of cat and mouse chase scenarios that leave me wanting more.

Saga continues to surprise and amaze it’s readers. The story isa plethora of crazy and whimsical events told in the perfect medium for thisstory.  Continue the great work Vaughan and Staples!

Rating: 5/5 stars
