Saga, Vol. 3 Reviews
This is my favorite volume of the series thus far. Events are building and characters are developing and it's pulling me right in. People die and characters collide. I do like that grandma and Heist got are falling for one another.
The story is epic. Hazel is still on the run, still keeping ahead of all those chasing her. I am totally not putting many details in this as to not spoil. I will say Lying cat gets a big smack down. The Will is in trouble. We are left with many questions and few concl ...more
First read in April 2014
Reread in September 2015
Third read in January 2018
I found myself wanting to skim read the bits with the journalists.. for some reason I found them so boring, but other than that and the lacking of action that the first two volumes had, I loved it!
The wild ride continues with Saga #3 as Alana and Marko, on the run, look both for a safe place for their family and their literary hero, D. Oswald Heist. There’s plenty of character development and quirkiness (which one expects from this series). I’m continuing to enjoy!
These books are like Prozac..I just want to eat them up by the dozen.
I think this one is even better than Volume 2. (Yes, I still haven't gotten vol. 1 yet)
Our heroes Marco and Alana have gone to find their literary hero so that they can ask him questions about the book that caused them to become a couple.
I wants all these books!!
Of the 3 volumes of SAGA I've read so far, I think this one might be my favorite. Okay, that's largely because it featured a writer and I'm a bit partial to them...but I felt that action-wise, it was just especially well done. All of the cliff hangers and plot points that were introduced in volume 2 are now coming into fruition and it's so much fun!
Can't wait to get to volume 4! I've written reviews on volumes 1 + 2 as well if you're interested in more in-depth thoughts.

Three stars might seem a bit harsh for one of the best adult comics published today, but it reflects my disappointment with how little actual content there was in this third story arc. There simply isn't enough meat on the bare bones of the adventure to justify calling it space opera or even epic. It feels more like a resume, a synopsis of the actual events. I finished it all in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, and now I have to wait until the end of the year for the next story arc to be ...more
I keep thinking about this, and how much I can't wait to read the next one, which made me up my rating to 5 stars aha
26/1/18: I really enjoyed this and read it all in one sitting aha
This is the only graphic novel series that I've managed to get interested in, and I have #4 on hold at the library ready to get picked up :D
Vol. 1 ★★★★
Vol. 2 ★★★★
This graphic novel made me more emotional than any other graphic novel ever has. This third installment will really pull on your heartstrings, so be prepared to feel all the feels.
This graphic novel also deals with some pretty BIG themes:
- Being able to love after a loss.
- Following your dreams, no matter what.
- How important, and memorable, it is to read to young children.
- Society's views on the LGBT community, and how much it needs to change.
- And most importantly, ...more
