Comic Minute: Saga #1
So while everyone was angry about the almost exposed boob on the cover, I doubt anyone is going to rise the same controversy about that scene in the middle.
Also, this is definitely a trade book. After reading the first issue, I can tell you that it will read so much better all together as opposed to issue by issue. It is going to be agonizing to wait between issues to find out what’s next and, to be perfectly honest, the break at the end feels a little forced, like they were working with the page constraints rather than it being the natural break in the story. I wouldn’t have noticed if it were in a trade collected, but as one issue…
What I’m saying is get it in trade. It is lovely, but I think it will read better as a whole complete story.
