My thoughts:
I read Saga volume 1 in September, and I've had this since January. I have no idea why I didn't pick it up until now.

The story is action-packed, and never boring. It's heartwarming and funny, and yet sad at the same time. The story is told with Hazel as a narrator, and we follow several characters. We have Marko and Alana, Hazel's parents, but we also see the stories of those who are following them.

Though each volume is about 160 pages, it doesn't take long to read them at all. The story is so fast-paced, and with the pictures you just fly through it. Therefore I don't want to talk to much about what happens, because I don't want to spoil anything.

This is definitely for older readers as it contains explicit pictures and language, and you should keep that in mind before picking this up. It is however a great story, and if you don't have any problems with that, you will most likely enjoy this.
