This comic is so good it's starting to piss me off.

Dear Mr. Vaughan,

You should not be able to make me cry five times in the same fucking comic. Seriously. Twice in two pages? This will not do. It is neither seemly nor fair.

Please knock that shit off.

Fondly yours,

pat

P.S. Please don't knock it off.

In this volume Alana and Marko decide they are going to go looking for the author of the romance book they read. I just love that there is a book and author in these graphic novels. CLASSIC!

Grandma Klara decides she's going too! They will not leave her behind.

Of course things don't go so well when they first get there as Klara gets one of her ears ate off by some bugs. Joyful! But after they find their author, he's drunk at first, they all get a long and I

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.


Then--stuff happens


I wants all these books!!

This review contains *spoilers*.

This series is going by so quickly. I want to reach the last volume, but I also don’t want this to be over (I’ll probably read it anyway).

I’m just really attached to the wonderful characters in this comic book.
The fast paced plot, the funny dialogue, and the incredible relationships all make it impossible to put down. It's a completely unputdownable story.

And so much happened in that last chapter, I’m still trying to wrap my mind around

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.

Just your typical story about a couple from opposing species of an interstellar war falling in love and having a baby, then fleeing the governments and hired mercenaries of both sides in a wooden rocketship with their ghost babysitter...

Three volumes in and so far each one has been 5 stars. I'm pretty sure that has never happened to me before.

I think this was my least-favorite so far. While it had its moments, it felt like not a whole lot happened until the end.

I think Gwendolyn looks awesome and is bad-ass, but she is also kind of one-dimensional and the jilted lover act is not my favorite. Plus, she doesn't seem very mature, she reacts without thinking. It's just annoying.

It felt like not a lot happened on Quietus besides philosophical conversations about war and family.

I really like The Will and Lying Cat.

The Brand intrigues me.

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,

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!

I shall write a review to express the awesomeness spreading from this series pretty soon. Let's say, in the 47,589,478 following days. I think.

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

Re-Read 5/13/18:

I cried a little. I just got all choked up. Again.

I cannot understand just how attached to these guys I've gotten. All of them. Every single last character. It's like I'm under a spell. A deep, dark spell.

And then, to top it all off, EVERY SINGLE PERSON REFERENCED becomes ALIVE and BEAUTIFUL later! I swear, this is only getting better every time I read it. :) The whole thing. Is. Blowing Me Away. :)

I love this series so much, the characters are great and so is the world. Marko is the softest dad in the world, I love him so much. And Alana is such a fucking badass I'm shooked. The art is really beautiful too!

This wasn't my favourite volume, but I did like Sophie in this one and the inclusion of a gay couple AND Gwendolyn being bisexual. (but I wasn't jazzed on some homophobic slurs being used eh)

Also this cover is literally stunning I stared at it for 10 minutes before whispering, softly,

The Saga series just gets even better with each volume. This one gives us some new characters, some exciting intrigue and more amazing and tantalising creatures. A must read for fans of graphic novels.

Can this series get any better or more exciting, Other Barry? I'm here to tell you it cannot. Up against it, this series makes cyborgs as interesting as watching paint dry. Cyborgs -- watching paint dry -- even the ones with removable vaginas of the lighting up variety. Just the tip, Archer. You want to lose that thing or what?



All Archer joking aside (and yes, that was totally for you Mara), Saga is a tremendous graphic novel series that continues to blow my hair back, my skirt up and my socks o

Buddy reading this entire series with my favorite Princess Celeste

I'm blazing through this series and even though I'm enjoying it, I still don't get why the series is so highly acclaimed. It could be just me but I really wish this books doesn't have any actions at all, the story gets better, characters are explored more but every time there's an action going on the art really made me feel detached. Even though I prefer there's no action, in this book there's a quote "it will be action packed." t

Saga definitivno postaje sve intrigantnija... Sve ono što sam napisao za prvi i drugi deo odnosi se i na ovaj. Ovo je jedna od onih novela koje jednostavno ne možete ostaviti sa strane. Stranice bukvalno lete i onda dođete do kraja besni zato što vam nastavak nije pri ruci.
Sviđa mi se kako autori profiliraju likove - oni bukvalno rastu iz epizode u epizodu. Gvendolin i The Will su ovog puta neverovatno dobri! Teško je ne vezati se za neke likove! A Saga je poput GOT - upoznamo nove likove da bis

Honestly you could probably take my review for one of these graphic novels and apply it to all of them: I continue to love these graphic novels. Prior to reading these, I had not really experienced a graphic novel that I really liked. But this series has proven that I can be a graphic novel fan.

This volume (like the others) was beautifully illustrated and I loved the story. It had me laughing in moments and also was quite emotional at times.

Definitely worth the read, even to those who think the

Of course, the actual message to the careful reader is: break rules as often as you can, because who the hell doesn't want to have an adventure?”
