Sucked Into Saga

I remember hearing about Saga around the time it came out. The “buzz” and “word of mouth” were enough that I pre-ordered the first paperback (at $9.99 I have no problem paying full price to get it at the comic shop).


I read the first chapter, and wasn’t all that impressed. Apparently I had started into the 2nd chapter before losing interest (based on where I found my page-marker) and the book sat for months.

Last Friday, after hearing podcaster Chris Marshall (of Collected Comics Library) talk about a similar experience–not having cared for the first issue, but making a conscious decision to go ahead and give the first two volumes a shot–I figured what the heck, I could do the same.

Snagged vol. 2 at full cover price for the “immediate gratification” of having the thing; dug out vol. 1….and ended up reading chapters 2-10 in one go. When I left vol. 2 at work I bought the digital issue 12 just so I wouldn’t have to wait til I got BACK to work to finish the contents of vol. 2.

And surprise, surprise…

I’m hooked. Quite enjoyed both volumes, and I’m seriously thinking of jumping onboard with the single issues (digitally) and keep with the paperbacks as my “hard copy” of these.

Time will certainly tell…
