This is a very new book by Brian K. Vaughn, a guy who has written almost nothing but universally praised comics that aren’t just about the fantastic but the intellectual and the realistic. Saga is a sci-fi epic taking place in a gigantic, fully realized, amazingly drawn universe heavily occupied by a war that’s been going on so long that it barely makes sense anymore. Enter the star-crossed lovers, a soldier from each side who run away together and have a baby in the first issue. This is no run-of-the-mill space saga, though—that birth starts on the first page with the line “Am I shitting? It feels like I’m shitting!” I have been trying for three years to get a huge nerd friend into comics. I finally got him to read just the first issue and now he’s buying it every month. Then his non-nerd, non-comic reading partner read it and he loves it too. They both text me immediately after reading the new issues. Also, robot sex. I know what you deviants are into. You’ll like it.
