Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in this sexy, subversive drama for adults.

Top Five Reasons Why You Should Read Saga 

1. The Illustrations are fucking beautiful.


The work done by Fiona Staples is authentic and beautiful and just perfect. You don't need words to express what the characters are feeling. Their perfect, perfect expressions will tell you everything. You don't want to miss this.

2. Its Craziness 

We all love our daily dose of weirdness. Who wants a perfect life with perfect friends and family? We need a bit of craziness to survive and have the best time of our life. Want something different and completely out of the blue? Read this now becausethis book is absolutely crazy. And very bizarre. 

Now, have you ever come across a more nightmarish creature? If you like this sort of thing then, I think you might even find her beautiful.
You don't want to miss this.

3. Story line 

People might say graphic novels can't convey much. Why? Because it's short, and they're just images, blah blah blah. Don't listen to them. This story is awesome. You'll easily get engrossed with the strange creatures and stranger happenings.It's also very addictive, so you better have the next book around. 

Now don't go google the story and prepare yer self beforehand. If you want just read the synopsis and leave it at that. Go unprepared. That would make your reading experience more thrilling and adventurous. 
You don't want to miss this.

4. Super Cool Main Characters

They're badass at every level. Yes, including the baby (even though we know nothing much of her because, duh, she's just a baby!) These characters are amazing as a family. I don't think there's any other comic with such a strong family love. I loved these three. I'll call them 'The Amazing Trio'. You don't want to miss this.

5. Because this is your only chance at survival.

I heard there's an apocalypse coming consisting of strange creatures who were ordered to kill anyone who has not read Saga. So yeah, um, I don't think you'd want to be that person. 

You don't want to go like that, do you? Didn't you get my hints, "You don't want to miss this"?

If that doesn't work, I don't know what will. So, why don't you just order your copy of Saga now? Just to be on the safe side :D
