Story by Brian K. Vaughan
Art & Cover by Fiona Staples

Size: 0 pages
Price: 2.99

Unless issue four comes with a Blowjob Robot, I’m not sure how Vaughan and Staples are going to top themselves. I’ve got three books left on my stack, and a couple of trades, but I can’t fathom how any of them are going to beat this. Weird shit? Check. Staples making each panel almost cover-worthy? Check. Final page jaw hanger? Check-che-check-check-check-check it out.

This is not a book to trade wait. It’s not one to stare at in the comic book store, and pass over. It’s the off-beat comic that every aspiring comic book creator has imagined writing, but Vaghan and Staples have nailed it. Pick this book up, and lend it out to your friends who don’t like comics. If this doesn’t change their mind, let them read their Twilight books in peace.

Story: 5 - Excellent

  1. Best opening line to a review ever.

  2. Best comic of the year so far. This book is amazing. I, like the reviewer, do not know how this series could get any better. Each issue has been amazing. I agree with the conclusion that each panel is good as a cover ought to be and each panel in this book is better than a significant number of covers out this month. BKV has out done himself. If you are a fan of his work and you are not reading this book, you must start immediately. If you are over the age of 18, read comics and are not reading this book – you need to start immediately. It is the best book on the market each month since it was introduced a mere two months ago. In spite of the fact that it has only been 60 days since this book was released I feel like I know these characters. Better yet, I feel for these characters. I am not a fan of science fiction or fantasy although I enjoyed Star Wars (IV-VI) as a child and enjoy Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, but this comic transcends all traditional catagories. It is a masterpiece in the making and I encourage all of you who are old enough to read this book to pick it up and watch two masters enternain us. I only hope that BKV abandons the notion that he won’t sell the rights to this book to television or film because I, for one, would love to see this book on screen. If this book is made into a series of films, I am comfortable concluding that it will break every box office record. In the event that HBO or Showtime invests an adequate amount of money to get this series made for television, I believe that it will be one of the most best television shows in history. For those of you who are trade waiting – stop. For those of you who haven’t read an issue of Saga – stop reading this comment, go to your local comic shop and buy whatever issues they have and enjoy.
