A Night Time Smoke

 Saga written by  Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Fiona Staples: Despite a never ending war, two soldiers fighting on opposite sides meet and fall in love.  Unfortunately, the rest of the galaxy isn't happy for them.

I have been wanting to pick up this comic for ages because of all the hype surrounding it.  I was also a little wary of it for that same reason so I did not read it until the library got volume one.

I read volume one in a night, returned it to the library and then promptly went out and bought volume one and two.  Safe to say it lives up to the hype.  Every little bit of it.

This series is funny, heartbreaking, scary and at its core, about family.  Not conventional families but about people coming together and finding reasons to stay and really care about one another. 

The characters are also a major draw for this comic because the ones we meet often are so incredible.  A lot of the time, I pick up one character and love them.  Saga sort of changed that because I am interested in so many of them and their stories, even the ones I am supposed to dislike.  

However, I recommend this comic to individuals over the age of 18 because there are a lot of mature themes in this comic not suitable for anyone below that age.
