Saga by Brian Vaughn and Fiona Staples
The characters, dialogue and setting are all fantastic. Saga has robot royalty, a spider-like alien assassin, a magical sword, a ghostly teenage babysitter cut off below the torso, a grease monkey in the form of an ape, and rocket ships that grow from trees. I'm really looking forward to volume 2, which is coming out in July 2013.
Readalikes: The Finder Library (Carla Speed McNeil); Fables (Bill Willingham et al).
NOTE added April 10: Apple has refused to carry Issue 12 of Saga on any of its platforms because of depictions of gay sex. See story on the Comics Beat website. I should have mentioned that the edition I reviewed, volume 1, is a paperback compilation of the first 6 issues. Issues 7 through 12 have been published (Image), but not yet compiled into volume 2.
