Saga, Vol. 5 (Saga #5) Reviews
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... ...more
Love Saga. This one flew by!
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?

I read the single issues of this, but plan to pick up the trade of this when it comes out anyways.
LEMME JUST SAY WHAT THE HELL HOW I CAN I WAIT AGAIN? UGH THIS VOLUME WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD. If you can't wait i HIGHLY suggest picking the single issues up!
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
volume five. the saga continues. and this time the quest is for dragon spunk. naturally.
this volume features all kinds of boss team-ups
and more of that devastating foreshadowing

and, yes, there will be dragons
