Are you reading Saga, the Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples masterpiece in the making published by Image Comics? No? Well you should be. I know that it's a heady statement, but barring some kind of unprecedented creative disaster, this book will stand on the pedestal amongst other comic book greats the like of Sandman, Preacher, Y the Last Man, Strangers in Paradise and fill in the blank of whatever comic book that you think is unmitigated genius. I just got caught up and read the last few issues (including issue #4, which featured the beautiful cover that I pasted above the words here) and I continue to fall more in love with the romantic sci-fi epic. So stop doing whatever you're doing, go to a comic store or the Image Comics website and start reading. It is better than whatever you are reading currently...unless you are reading Saga...then please stop reading this and continue.
