The fact that Saga is an amazing series, and perhaps the best comic running, is beyond debate. This review will strictly deal with the Hardcover itself, because it is a well known fact that the series is a five star masterpiece. The Hardcover features baby Hazel breastfeeding and it is as beautiful as it is controversial. It also serves as an excellent litmus test for the series itself, because if you're offended by this cover than don't bother diving in because Saga isn't for you. It is a series for grown ups with its tone ranging from raunchy, to brutal, to sensual, to serious, but always, always mature, in one way or another.
The Book itself is very well made, which is a relief for collectors, and a boon for the budget conscious. You're getting 18 glorious issues totaling in 504 pages, including extras, in a beautiful and well made package for, at the time of writing this review, $30.00. While I love the extras, such as being taken through a step by step of how an issue of saga is put together, I was really looking forward to seeing more of the artists, Fiona Staples, gorgeous never seen sketches. I was in no way disappointed by the quality of what is found here, but I was disappointed by how little of it there was. There are, total, six pages of sketches in this Hardcover, and while I wasn't expecting there to be enough to fill an art book, I was hoping for more than just six pages.
All in all, the Saga Deluxe Edition Hardcover, volume 1, is an excellent product for an amazing price. If you've always wanted to read the series, this is the perfect jumping on vehicle. If you're a die hard fan, you already own and love this book. If you already own the three paperback and aren't a die hard fan though, know that the extras, while great, are slight, and it is up to you whether or not they're worth thirty extra dollars. That nitpick aside, the Saga Deluxe Edition Hardcover, volume one, is an amazing product and an unquestionable buy.
