“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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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: ★★★
Volume Four: ★★★
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! It's a ridiculous space-adventure with so many characters and wonderfully designed ...more
