Book Review: Graphic Novels Part 5

It's time to review some more Graphic Novels; let's do it?  Alright...

1. Sex Criminals-Volume 1

This Graphic novel follows 2 two people who have the power to stop time during sex, first they don't realize that each other have the same power until they hook up and when they find out they start to discuss what they should do while the world around them is in a pause mood.  Eventually they decide to rob a bank, what they don't know is that there are others like them around and they are around to stop people with ideas like them.  Even though the concept of this Graphic novel sounded really good, I just couldn't get into it, it took me a while to get to the end of it and just could not connect with the characters and I don't think that I will be continuing with this series.  3 out 5 stars, only because the art was pretty good.

2. Saga-Volume 2

Spoilers for this one if you haven't read the first volume yet.  Marko and Alana are still on the run with their little girl but on this Volume they get the help and surprise visit from Marko's parents.  This series is just amazing. Loved this Volume.  4 out of 5 stars.

3. Saga-Volume 3

Saga keeps on getting better, the young family is of course still running away, now with Marko's parents in town.  In this Volume they are traveling to a cosmic lighthouse on the planet Quietus, why?  Because they think their literary hero can help them.  But their enemies are closing in on them.  Lots of actions on this Volume.  4 out of 5 stars.

4. Saga-Volume 4

Hazel is a toddler now and the young family has ran away to a strange new world and are trying to live a kind of a "normal" life but of course life is not easy and things are looking to be as hard even when enemies are not nearby.  But the enemies are still trying to find a way to locate them, but first they have to take care of themselves, this volume everyone is trying to piece themselves together.  4 out of 5 stars.

5. Saga- Volume 5

My favorite so far of the series, so much happens on this one.  Gwen risk everything to cure The Will, Marko makes to weirdest alliance, with non other than with Prince Robot IV, why?  To find their missing children, who are trapped on a strange world with terrifying new enemies.  While Alana is losing her mind on what she should be doing.  Loved, loved this volume and cannot wait to read the next one.  5 out 5 stars.

6. Rat Queens-Volume 1

New GN series that I started this month and I like it, it's the first volume so we will see how it goes, there is magic involved so that's a plus of course.  So bad ass female characters that are always trying to keep peace but not afraid to kill?  Yeah, pretty dam cool.  And right away on the first volume there was a mystery for the Rat Queens to discover and it just picked up from there.  Lots of fighting scenes and you get some romance too, soooo a little of bit of everything.  4 out of 5 stars and I will definitely continue with this series.

That's all the Graphic Novels I've read up to date.  I cannot wait to pick up Volume 6 of Saga and continue reading Rat Queens and pick up other ones too.
