Rare science fiction graphic novel, illustrated in stunning psychedelic panels, with decisively political and erotic subject matter. The book tells the story of Saga, a blue alien creature from the planet Xam, sent to Earth to learn about the violence and history of humanity. There, however, she falls in love with women of different eras. The book culminates in an explosion of concrete poetry, featuring notable artists of the era, such as Julian Beck & Judith Malina, Brian Jones, and John Lennon.
A remarkable book of modernist science fiction.
