I absolutely LOVED reading this- I stayed up way past my bedtime looking at the pictures & reading every word. This is the first comic I've read since I was a kid, and now I'm on hold for the rest of the series. Can't wait to read them all. (also, my husband is super in to them as well!)

Thrilling, exuberant. Romeo & Juliet set in space plus some. Beautiful art, fantastic characters, and excellent writing. The Wreath language is Esperanto, helpful if you know it. If you don't, you can rest assured that it is translatable. However, you won't suffer much if you skip the Wreathsperanto and enjoy the story as is.

Adult themes.

Possibly the best comic series currently coming out, Saga is a fantasy space opera that grabs you by the gut and pulls you along for the ride of your life.

An epic adventure begins with fantastic writing and incredible artwork. The scope of the story and the blending of fantasy and science fiction in a very emotional story reminds me in ways of "Star Wars" -- but is definitely aimed at adults or older teens.

This was the comic that got me into reading comics. Great story, interesting characters, and some pretty solid artwork to boot. Definitely reaching must read territory.

Pretty good book, but you probably shouldn't let younger kids read it to stuff like nudity, language, and violence.

Science Fiction on an epic scale, with multiple story lines interwoven around a baby girl who shouldn’t exist. Good for people looking for a hybrid of Star Wars and Game of Thrones.

Yes, please, I would like a lot more of this. Forewarning: it's *very* adult. If it's offensive in ANY way, it's in this series. But the art is gorgeous and full of life. The characters are all scummy, and yet they have complicated pieces going on in their backgrounds to make them compelling (regardless of if you like them or not in the end). The plot is fast and intense and makes me deeply curious about what's coming next. The interjections from Hazel are lovely and add an extra element of curiosity to the panels. The ideas and themes of family, refugees, and culture are fascinating. And I'm a huge, huge sucker for characters with giant ears that can flop down when they're feeling sad or scared, which is covered in spades.

For someone that doesn't love graphic novels, this series is PERFECT! There are space battles, love across races, betrayal, strong family dynamics, and the quest to find a place to live in peace. The story is original, while using general fantasy and political tropes. You will love this family, and the lengths they go to in order to protect their child.

This volume out of the few was way so unpredictable, while I was reading I first thought it was Prince Robert IV; yet however, I later realized the actual name Prince ROBOT IV. The art is very creative and imaginative, the writing was good, the effects were very realistic, I can't even describe these things... totally recommended for those of you nerds like me.

A science fiction love story eager to show you worlds and characters who fully breathe within the pages. Strangeness rules in this tale and it is certainly not for those unwilling to simply let go and bathe in the story. Please check it out!

Violence: There's pretty standard fighting for action-based sci-fi as well as some gore, though the gore isn't constant or especially intense. However, there is CSA/sexual violence against a child that it would've helped to know in advance to prepare for that mentally and emotionally. It's not explicitly shown; things are said to and about the child. Their situation is also shown and discussed.
