Praise for Saga:
“Mischievous, vulgar and gloriously inventive.” —TIME Magazine
“May it run for 1,000 issues.” —Rolling Stone Magazine
“A little bit Romeo & Juliet and a lot Star Wars.” —USA Today
“Staples and Vaughan, like L. Frank Baum or J.R.R. Tolkien, have brought to life a fantasy world so fully realized that nothing, no matter how incredible, seems out of place for a second.” —Library Journal
“Vaughan’s whip-snap dialogue is as smart, cutting, and well timed as ever, and his characters are both familiar enough to acclimate easily to and deep enough to stay interested in as their relationships bend, break, and mend.” —Booklist
"My favourite comic lately has been Saga." —Lyndie Greenwood, actress
