Saga Vol. 8 by Brian K. Vaughan

Rating: 4/5 While this story no longer feels original 8 volumes in, I find I am continually intrigued by the unfolding of such an epic family drama. Some new and odd elements were introduced, such as invisible monsters, Hazel's newfound connection to the dead, and their emotions run rampant through happiness, grief, shame, and more. … Continue reading Saga Vol. 8 by Brian K. Vaughan

Saga Vol. 7 ~ Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Rating: 5/5 Volume Seven felt like a very standalone/condensed story within the larger story arc, and would be an okay place for a new reader to try out if they didn't want to read the whole series. However, as a segment of the overall plot, Vol. 7 was PHENOMENAL! I loved the character development, particularly … Continue reading Saga Vol. 7 ~ Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Saga Vol. 5 ~ Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

In some ways, this volume felt more balanced than the last. Vaughan took the time to fill in some plot holes, bringing the story arc back together and reuniting more characters.

Saga Vol. 4 ~ Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Meanwhile … Continue reading Saga Vol. 4 ~ Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Saga Vol. 3 ~ Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples

Skipping a little backwards in time, this volume covers what happened during the tail end of the last volume.  However, this time the storyline is ramped up a little more with even more violence and deaths of characters I'd become attached to. There was a little too much sexuality for my taste, but I appreciate … Continue reading Saga Vol. 3 ~ Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples

Saga Volume 2 ~ Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

This second installment in the Saga series takes us back in time to when Marko and Alana met, and how their star-crossed romance blossomed. We also shuttle through space in a rocketship from a tree, and meet Hazel's grandparents, Marko's parents who are initially disgusted and surprised that he's chosen to marry outside of their … Continue reading Saga Volume 2 ~ Brian K.
