Saga, Volume 2 - Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

Saga 2

My only complaint with this second volume is that it’s simply too short. I want each and every instalment in this series to consist of at least 600 pages! Is that too much to ask?

Obviously, Saga 2 continues where the first Volume left off and it doesn’t lose stride. The characters are brilliant, the story gripping (and still lightly confusing because everything is so FANTASTICAL), the artwork resplendent in its beauty, and the creators’ imagination knows no bounds. Luckily, there’s not as much of the weird robot prince in this one. He creeps me out a fair bit. I found Marko a bit dull and boring in comparison to the other characters, but the flashbacks to his childhood more than make up for what he lacks (for me) in the present. He’s just a bit too sensible in the face of the weirdness surrounding him. Never mind his being bloodsoaked in the cover. :)

I love the languages. Are they speaking actual Esperanto on Wreath? Doesn’t matter. I love that it was so easy to get the meaning even though it was so different from English.

So, when’s the next one coming out? And can it please be longer? At least three times the length of this Volume?

I spent a thoroughly enjoyable time with Saga 2 and I want MOAR, pretty please.
