If you want to hear a comic shop owner gush, ask them about Saga. First published in March 2012 and still releasing monthly issues to this date, Saga is often described as a mash-up between Star Wars, Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings, and Romeo and Juliet.
Created by writer Brian K. Vaughan, illustrated by Fiona Staples, and published by Image Comics, Saga offers a unique perspective on intergalactic, unending war. The tale follows a husband, wife, and daughter as they flee authorities on both sides of the battle all in the name of family.
Fresh, inventive, fun, and powerful. Saga truly is a remarkable achievement and one clearly deserving of a spot on any best of the decade list.
