Fables Vol. 3: Storybook Love

When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe.

From bestselling writer Brian K. Vaughan, Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in this sexy, subversive drama for adults.

What did I just read? This is the third comic series I have ever read and it blew my mind. The art by Fiona Staples is just breathtakingly gorgeous. Seriously.

The story follows Alana and Marko, they are both from different sides of a huge war that has been going on for a long time. They illegally run away together and have a baby, Hazel. Saga follows Alana and Marko as they try to escape from those that want to kill them and take their baby. The perspectives switch back and forth from the couple to the different characters that are looking for them. Volume 1 was so outlandish and crazy, it was so entertaining. I found Sextillion really mental, just what was that craziness really about!? Talking heads on legs? Madness. I was really creeped out by the spider lady too, *shudders*.

My favourite character is Alana, her very first line on the first page just made me crack up. She is so witty and tough, it's great. I really like The Will and his cat too - I love his cavalier attitude and his big heart. All in all, this was a great read and I can't wait to continue on with the series.
