“From the Hugo Award-winning duo of Brian K. Vaughan (The Private Eye, Y: The Last Man) and Fiona Staples (North 40, Red Sonja), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. Searching for their literary hero, new parents Marko and Alana travel to a cosmic lighthouse on the planet Quietus, while the couple’s multiple pursuers finally close in on their targets.”
This was another amazing volume in the Saga graphic novel series. I am reading these in trade paperback and really enjoying them a lot. This volume was especially intense and I devoured it in one sitting and loved every minute of it.
I have really enjoyed the characters, the action, the unique settings, and the story in this series. This installment in the series is both strangely domestic and has the highest body count yet.
The illustration is well done in full color and very easy to follow. The characters are just amazing. I love all the crazy aliens we run into along with both the heartwarming and hilarious moments. Vaughan does such a great job of making the crazy characters in this sci-fi world seem totally plausible and human. I love it!
Overall this was another amazing installment in the Saga series. I just can’t get enough of this series! The characters, the worlds, the story…all of it is absolutely amazing, engaging, hilarious, and strangely heartwarming.
