Hello everyone and welcome to another exciting edition of Silverwolf Suggests! Each month, I select three different comics for a friend that I think she or he will like. The friend then selects one of the three, and, if they like, I’ll purchase it for him or her. Later, we discuss the comic, the results of which are shared here!

This month, I’m joined by my friend Oliveblair, who read Saga Volume 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples at my recommendation. It’s a highly regarded comic, and so I was very intrigued to hear her thoughts on it.
