Four pages from SAGA #6...

Marko, Alana, and their baby (and the ghost babysitter makes four) have found their way to the Rocketship Forest. Most of the trees have been burned or cut down. Most, but not all...

The ship requires them to make a sacrifice before it'll take them anywhere, so Marko cracks his magic sword in half and leaves it behind.

As they're jouneying through space, the ship sounds the alarm as it detects exotic matter. We've got magic incoming...

It just keeps getting harder and harder not to buy this book. I may crack soon and buy it.

It's the best book out. I have nothing to compare it to in quality and awesomeness. And I read nearly everything.

It's going on hiatus for a couple of months, IIRC, and there's a $10 TPB of the first six issues due out soon. Perfect time to catch up! Do it, do it, do it!

Yep yep, the first trade's due in November, I believe, and comes out just before issue #7 does in the same month.

Image are really, really good for that, though. When it's a series people are really responding to - like Morning Glories - they always have the trade collecting up the end of a storyline ready to go before the next one begins. Same for Fatale. And it seems to be the case here, given the grandparents turning up feels suitably cliffhangery, in a slightly comical fashion.

I'm with you there.

Normally, I hate stories with babies as part of the main cast, but this looks like it won't disappoint.

"Tiu estas mia"/"Tio estas nia".. that's a nuanced language, right there.

It's Esperanto, I think, right?

Yes, Esperanto.

Google translate works on it, if you want to know what it means.

"Tiu" vs "tio" is the personal vs impersonal demonstratives (apparently babies are considered objects). mia vs nia is "my" vs "our" (the n there being akin to Latin "nos").

It's highly regular, which leads to lack of redundancy, which isn't always a great thing for communication.

Whoa whoa whoa wait
this is super interesting
why am I not following this?
And I dig the art style. Not in general, but the characters and general tone fit for the art.
