Over the last couple years, I've talked a lot about how some things bother me in storytelling.

One of the things that bothers me the most is when a child is put in danger in order to grab cheap dramatic tension in a story. Even worse is when a child is hurt/killed/threatened order to build character or establish something about the world.

90% of the time it's lazy storytelling of the highest degree, and 9% of the time it's little more than emotional abuse. I think of it as roughly equivalent to f

I've run out of ways to praise Saga at this point so I'll just say that it continues to be one of the most entertaining, creative, funny, heartbreaking, profane, graphically violent, and well drawn comics I've read.

“Each new person we welcome into our hearts is a chance to evolve into something radically different than we used to be.”

This was my favorite volume, to date. And I say this in all of my Saga reviews, but Brian K. Vaughn is such a genius to make the voice of this comic the adorable daughter we know and love named Hazel. I feel more for this little hybrid cinnamon roll more than I do for most people I know in real life. Seriously, I want nothing bu

After reading Volume 4, I immediately had to pick up Volume 5. When this ends, I'm going to be so sad because it's just THAT GOOD.

Admittedly though, this was my least favorite of the volumes thus far. It's not that it wasn't fantastic and entertaining, I just felt like not as much happened. But you know what, all of this set-up is bound to mean that something awesome is coming and that's well worth it.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars not because it isn't an incredible work, but because compared to t

Brian K. Vaughan is a very good, perhaps great, comic writer. Fiona Staples is a very good, perhaps great, comic artist.

Saga gets fawned over more than a pile of fruit on the ground near a wooded area (because fawns like to eat fruit that’s fallen to the ground…get it?).

And I like it. I do. I’ve read all 5 volumes, haven’t I?

But, I don’t love it. Not like a fawn loves fallen fruit. Or even like hunters love depriving Bambi of his mother (too soon?).

Volume 5, in particular, just didn’t quite c

Where do I start with this one? There is so many things going on and it's a bit sad. I might as well just get into it.

So the tv head named Dengo still has Alana, Hazel and Klara. He makes some stupid deal with the Revolution. They are actually bad people and they come and load everyone into their ship and they think they are going to take little Hazel somewhere and do some business. But, things never turn out as planned.

YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Things are back on track. This was action-packed from beginning to end! No more angst and family drama. Alana and Marko were awesome.

Gwendolyn is growing on me and is not just the angry ex. I like The Brand, but sad now. Ghus is awesome. The dragons. Hazel growing up is so cute.

I see some people have said they didn't like this one as much, but it was my favorite since the first volume!

Volume One: ★★★★★
Volume Two: ★★★★★
Voume Three: ★★★

"Regardless of sex, everyone loses something in a war...but the first casualty is always the truth."

Saga is the only graphic novel series that I care about. I've tried others, even by Brian K. Vaughan, but nothing ever fascinated me as much as this series does. It's the combination of ultimate suspense and diversity of characters. Not once in the five volumes did I get bored. The many unique characters and subplots bring out a variety of emotions: love, hate, fear, excitement and thrill. (And is

Re-Read 5/15/18:

And just when I started to love ANOTHER CHARACTER... I have to get heartbroken again. Not all characters, of course, but some have a special place in my heart. ; ;

What a fantastic series. Heavy-hitting, pull no punches, freakstorm.


Original Review:

Still seriously wicked cool. The story is fantastic, but so is the art. The pacing is divine and it is so damn funny and disturbing at the same time I just can't understand why EVERYONE hasn't just gone bonkers over this title.

I honestly don't know how this series will get better in the future. Volume 2-3 for me were the peak of the series, and volume 4 slightly resulted to decline. This fifth volume was not that bad, because it brought out an even more weird side to the series. What's running inside my head though is that how could this improve even more, enough for me to give it a five star rating? Hopefully volume 6 could answer that.

This volume brought out Vaughan's weird side even more. I liked how they were on a

This is phenomenal, witty, funny, thought-provoking, marvellous and hilarious. I think this may even top Volume 4 for me which I utterly loved... I don't even know any more because every time I think I've seen the best of it they bring out something even more crazy brilliant! There are some pages in this which made me ponder, other pages made me smile or feel sadness, and some even made me full on giggle out loud!

Buddy reading this entire series with my favorite Princess Celeste

First of all, I would like to apologize for spamming everyone's timeline with my mini reviews on this series. This is one of the reason why I don't review my mangas or graphic novels.

The series is really fast to read, I'm not joking, each volume will take you 30-40 minute max to finish so that's the reason for these spams. There's one more volume available left which I'll do tomorrow

Volume 5 was a very entertaining entry in the Saga saga (I have been wanting to use that one for awhile!) Lots of twists, turns, reunions, separations, cliffhangers, deaths, cool weapons, strange creatures, fascinating planets, and general debauchery.

The first few volumes of this did not sell me, but now I am very into this series and I look forward to continuing!

Now that I'm finished with the fifth volume of Saga, I feel like it is time to share my thoughts. So many of you have reviewed the first volume; I rather enjoyed volume five so here we go:

First, understand that Saga is a space opera centered on the relationship and trials of Alana and Marko, primarily narrated via flashback through their young daughter, Hazel. The entire idea of a saga, to start in the middle, go back, and go forward in time, is perfectly encapsulated around Hazel's lifespan...

Turns out I didn't wait long enough to start this series. I have fast run out of Saga and that is a tragedy. When is the next book? Siiiiigh. (Reminder to self for next time starting a Brian K. Vaughan series: the "long enough" time to wait to start a series of his is "when it's already finished".)

More than any other book in this series so far, I feel like Volume 5 really hit home for me why this series is called "Saga". The focus of the story is so personal and intimate, and yet the scope of it
