    It's rare that a comic (or a story in any medium, really) can skip forward in time while maintaining narrative tension. But this volume of Saga does it. It breaks this rule as it breaks so many others, and it comes out on the other side, shining and smelling like a rose.Seriously. This comic is like a master's class in how to write compelling, long-term, emotional character arcs. Vaughan is probably the best comic writer in the business these days.

    Oh. My. God. The Will got fat! Bahahahahahahaha!Even with the whole We Gotta Find/Rescue Our Kid storyline, the thing that made the biggest impression on me was The Will's drug-induced weight gain. And really, kids, that's what you need to take away from volume 6 of Saga. Not all drugs make you skinny.Yup. Today's free life lesson is this: choose your drugs wisely, or you could end up bloated and talking to imaginary friends - like a chubby Gary Busey, minus the hair.Alright. Saga.Is there anyon Oh.

Saga.Is there anyone who isn't already reading this? I mean, even people who don't read comics read Saga. It's the cool thing to do, right? It is. It really is!You'd think after 6 volumes it would lose its charm, but Vaughn & Staples manage to keep the story fresh with a time jump.Hazel is a kindergartner. Due to some spoilery shit, she had been taken prisoner with her Grandmother and one of her original kidnappers, and they now live in a refugee camp-like place run by Wings. Her mixed parentage is the biggest bombshell in the universe, and lots of people are still looking for her. So it's a good thing she can keep a secret, right?Ohmygodkidshutthefuckup!Honestly, there wasn't anything I disliked about this volume. It wasn't as AMAZING as the first few, but it's still the best graphic novel being published right now. So...?Oh, and I absolutely loved Alana & Marko in this one!If you haven't picked this series up yet, you simply don't know what you're missing. Clever, touching, smart, funny, relatable, and beautifully drawn.

I felt deeply for Alana and Marko as parents that have been separated from their child so soon. And old beloved (and not so beloved) characters show up to interfere: Those reporters (Upsher and Doff) were really starting to get on my nerves, so I was immensely grateful when The Will ambushed them.And I also loved the newly added characters (Petrichor and Hazel’s teacher, Noreen). I'm truly grateful that Noreen helped Hazel escape.Also, the reunion between her and her parents was so sweet, I had tears in my eyes. I’m crying. But that ending. THAT ENDING!!! I cannot wait for what's to come next. Overall, this volume was very satisfying, but yes, I still want and need more— I mean, I just finished reading and I already miss everyone... *Note: I'm an Amazon Affiliate.

    I’ve generally enjoyed Saga from the outset, but reading the past few volumes has made me feel a little bit like a first-time guest at a clown orgy: a little bit intrigued, very perplexed as to how such acts can be carried out by so many people in a very small car, a little bit horrified, and just generally bewildered (and, perhaps, the slightest bit aroused).

I’m happy to report that Vol. 6 is a welcome return to form, and I’m no longer contemplating anything that involves the words “Bozo” and “Cleveland Steamer.”Having Alana and Marko back together certainly helped, and Prince Robot coming into his own as both a sympathetic and bitingly funny character was a key development (and, hey, who doesn’t love seeing a horned hermaphrodite in the shower?). My enthusiasm has been renewed, so I think it’s safe to say, Saga, that I’m back in like with you.

Not only is associating with the enemy viewed as unspeakable, falling in love is a whole other ballpark. So imagine their surprise when they got pregnan Vol. 1 ★★★★Vol. 2 ★★★★Vol. 3 ★★★★★Vol. 4 ★★★★Vol. 5 ★★★★★ “...anyone who thinks one book has all the answers hasn't read enough books.” For those who have yet to experience the phenomenon that is Saga, the basic premise is that two star-crossed lovers, one from a planet and one from its moon, fell in love during a time of war with each other. Not only is associating with the enemy viewed as unspeakable, falling in love is a whole other ballpark. So imagine their surprise when they got pregnant. Our amazing little main protagonist, Hazel, is four years old, and even though she is away from her parents, she still has Klara, her grandmother, and is even going to school. Be it may, the school, and the place they are living is a little unconventional, but Hazel is safe for now, even though she is starting to have some important questions. Marko and Alana are desperately looking for Hazel. They have reconciled a lot since the previous bind up, and are in a really good place right now. I mean, in as good as of a place you can be in when the whole universe is hunting you and your daughter and mother/mother-in-law are missing. I always love seeing Marko and Alana's relationship unfold, and their always present and always heavy emphasis on their family. Another thing I really loved about this particular bind-up was the emphasis on teachers and all the good they can do in the world. How important they can be, and how much they can impact a child's life. It was really beautiful and I really appreciated seeing that representation. Noreen was everything. This series, also, represents so many different sexualities, and I always love it so very much. Yes, this comic is for sure for adults, and much of the content is mature, but it packs such an explosive and important punch. And the underlying message that surrounds this whole series is about race, and it is something so pure and beautiful and makes me feel like this story is handed down to us from above. I lose words thinking about it, yet feel so blessed to be impacted by it. Please, if you haven't, give this series a try. “You'll never understand the way the worlds really work until you surround yourself with people from all sorts of weird backgrounds.” I was crying pretty hard most of Chapter Thirty Six, but that ending shook me to my core. I cannot wait to get my hands on Vol. 7 on March 28th, 2017. “Dying is one of the few experiences we'll eventually all enjoy firsthand, and like most shit that's commonplace, it's boring to dwell on.” As always, I'm now going to break down each chapter in this bind up. I mostly do this so I can go back and refresh what has happened in which specific issue. There will be SPOILERS, so please do not continue if you have not read this graphic-novel, Vol. 1, Vol. 2, Vol. 3, Vol. 4, or Vol. 5! CHAPTER THIRTY ONE: We get to see our MUCH GROWN UP Hazel, who is four years old and is in kindergarten. We soon realize that when she escaped with her grandmother, Klara, and Lexis, that they were put in some sort of prison like living center. It seems safe, even though Hazel must always hide the wings she has inherited from her mother. We are also introduced to a new character, Petrichor, who is transgender and absolutely amazing! I have such high hopes for her character! CHAPTER THIRTY TWO: Marko and Alana have not forgotten about their baby girl. They have searched for her every second of the time, while also repairing their love. They soon find out that Hazel is on Landfall, Alana's native planet. We also get to see that Prince Robot IV is with Gus and Friendo, and his much older son that he is calling Squire. CHAPTER THIRTY THREE: Now that the Brand is dead, Upsher and Doff, the journalist and photographer from many issues past, have decided to try again with the story surrounding Marko, Alana, and Hazel. A much larger and softer the Will finds them, honoring his sister's wishes from the grave, and decides to use that information to find Prince Robot IV, since he still wants retribution for the Stalk's death. CHAPTER THIRTY FOUR: Hazel, who has started having many important questions about who she is, has decided to show her teacher her wings. Her teacher fainted upon realizing what Hazel was, and hit her head pretty hard on a table. Petrichor finds her, and immediately wants to help and protect Hazel, because she too knows what it feels like to hide who you really are. Yet, the teacher is more than happy to keep Hazel's secret. The Will is taking drugs to make him see the Stalk, and Upsher and Doff are in fear for their lives. Marko and Alana make Prince Robot IV go with them to rescue Hazel. CHAPTER THIRTY FIVE: Upon rescuing Hazel, Marko and Alana hit a hive mine, but Marko goes ahead with the plan. The Will finds where Squire is, even though he is hoping to find Prince Robot IV, and is going to kill him, until the images he is seeing of the Stalk turn into the images of his sister, the Brand. Also, Ghüs gets angry. CHAPTER THIRTY SIX: The amazing teacher, in fear for Hazel's life, is trying to sneak her out. The plan starts to turn bad on her, but not before Marko finds them first. I was honestly crying through this whole issue. Marko brings Hazel's doll back to her, and hopes to bring her and his mom back to the ship where Alana and Prince Robot IV are waiting. Klara tells him that she has found a home that she is thriving in, and doesn't wish to go with him, so Petrichor goes in her place. (view spoiler)[PETRICHOR TELLS ALANA SHE IS PREGNANT AGAIN, AND I LOST MY FUCKING MIND!!!! (hide spoiler)]I love these characters and this world; this graphic novel truly is a tier above the rest. Yet, if anything happens to Ghüs, I'll riot. Blog | Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram | Youtube | Twitch

We are introduced to new interesting characters that are, as expected, three dimensional and memorable. I don’t think the author COULD make a character look meaningless and unimportant even if he tried (unless it’s intentional of course).Even past villains or characters we loved to hate are becoming… endearing. Or it’s become so easy to understand their predicament that we can’t help but try to see their point of view. I especially loved Robot (and his son) in this volume.A spectacular continuation.

ROCKS.I'm of the opinion that this is the STANDARD TO BEAT, and I've read a lot of comics.Not only is this independent, but it just GOES all the places it wants and it does it brilliantly, not caring a whiff about what anyone else is doing or thinking.

Sooo sweet my dried up, shriveled heart actually cracked a little bit. I love everyone that is backing up and protecting Hazel. The Will getting fat on the hallucinogenic food was funny.I'm not really a fan of the tabloid guys plot, though. Meh.Petrichor should make things interesting.

What happened to that fun little adventure I fell in love with? The artwork is still as beautiful and vibrant as ever, but where’s that witty dialog and that colorful cast of characters that once seemed so intriguing? When did this glorious space opera devolve into this rather pedestrian soap opera?I realize there was always that rollercoaster feel to the narrative. While the odd volumes were hurtling down hills and rolling through corkscrews and loops, the even volumes were slow hill climbs pushing the story forward. However, this time that hill may have been too steep; the wheels have nearly ground to a halt. It’s all just so . . . incredibly boring.I do know one thing for certain. It doesn’t help reading this story one volume at a time, especially these filler volumes. It’d be like picking up a book, reading the dullest chapter or two, then setting it aside for a couple of month, before you carry on. It’s makes no sense whatsoever, so I will end that practice right here and now. More importantly, I need to wait and see if this Saga actually reaches a conclusion, because I have no interest in an endless soap opera. Sadly, that wait will no longer be all that difficult.2 Stars – Fare thee well, Friendo T_T : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDKO6...No more half measures, Ghüs. Go for the head or heart.

There was not enough of the familiar sarcastic humor, the laugh worth punch lines, the chemistry was off more than it was on.

I get this volume was more serious and moved the story along, but there was not much of the ingredients that truly makes Saga stand out of all the rest.But what this volume is, is timely. As usual the story moves very easy through the current day references and attitudes, which is great as it does record our times and hottest topics, but at the same time it comes across as preaching. It feels like that even when I absolutely support the things that is preached of.I hope to get on track with the next volume, I would hate to lose the fun and loving relationship I have with Saga.

    I guess that 5 star streak for all the Saga collections had to come to an end sometime. This is still the best comic book space adventure/fairy tale/romance you’re likely to read, It also still has enough weird alien characters to populate a cantina in Star Wars as well as more violence, profanity, sex, and nudity than most R rated movies. However, it seemed to lack of a bit of the pop that made the rest of the series so next level.

    Finally finished the last available volume in Saga and I find this volume to be less entertaining than Volume 4 & 5. I don't think I'll be continuing with this series until it's completely finished and that will still be a long time, so this will be my last mini-review for Saga in the next 5 or 10 years. I would totally recommend this to a fan of graphic novel, it's a good series, but it's not something great for me.Some cons I have on the series: -Some of the creatures in this series are di Finally finished the last available volume in Saga and I find this volume to be less entertaining than Volume 4 & 5.

Me, I thought I was getting into a good rhythm by reading two albums in a row, but once again, I reached the final chapter with a "Is that all?" expression on my face. The current album is no better and no worse than the previous ones, but there are a few things that recommend it in particular:- it closes some of the hanging threads from previous issues (view spoiler)[ reuniting Hazel with her parents (hide spoiler)]- not so many new characters, focusing instead on existing favorites and the comeback of some old friends (view spoiler)[ the ghostly babysitter is my favorite (hide spoiler)]- fabulous artwork, as usual from Fiona Staples- more jokes than snappy banter than I have come to expect from the series, or so it seems right now. The Robot Prince and the Will seem to be at the receiving end of most of them, with Marko and Alana in a better mood that usual- last, but the most important, a slightly grown-up Hazel that takes an active part in the story and is not just a package carried around by the adults.With Hazel in the spotlight, I thought the new Saga album raised the cuteness factor to an unprecedented level, not that I'm complaining, since I am starting to get a little tired of the constant raising of ISSUES by Vaughan - same sex relationships, gender identity, discriminations, corruption, war crimes, etc. The preachiness of some parts of the story is still balanced though by the good parts, especially the focus on family in the context of an endless and pointless war. And BKV, as he likes to referr to himself in the letters page, can be relied upon to pull some surprise rabbits out of his magic hat, and to turn the story in an unexpected direction. There's a very short step from cute to scary in his arsenal, and the best example in this issue is the lovely hamster (or whatever he is) Grus:Needless to say, I will wait for the next issues of Saga and the louder the grumbles you hear from me, the more keen are my expectations.

    Well, if you are not yet reading this series, get on it! I see even Alan Moore says it is great, on the book cover now, one of the great comics achievements. . . Alan Moore, the godfather of comics said this! And this particular volume is the most feel-good one so far, nice things happen, all the angst from previous volumes lightens up a bit, but I won't spoil it for you.

And this particular volume is the most feel-good one so far, nice things happen, all the angst from previous volumes lightens up a bit, but I won't spoil it for you. I will say, if you are thinking of sharing with kids, maybe don't. It has some pretty explicit sex in it, which might be startling for younger readers.So if I can't talk about spoiler good parts that were actually a bit moving, I will say: *I liked the fact that Hazel's kindergarten teacher talks about the importance of reading to her. *I love that crazy shapeshifting Izabel, the nanny.*Of course Vaughn/Staples have to one-up all the transgender stories now with Petrichor, an intersex character.*Prince Robot is pretty funny, claiming racism because everyone thinks that all robots look alike. . . yet they do all look alike. . . *Ghus sort of ups the adorable quotient in this one, and then, zero to sixty, he's suddenly. . . . not just adorable. . . Let me just say Vaughn can quickly go from smartass witty to violent in a panel.*That creepy multiple-eyed villain, The Stalk, is pretty convincingly and entertainingly evil.*Upsher and Doff, the gay couple journalists, are funny and fun.*Marko and Alana, the straight couple, our central hero and heroine, are the awesomest couple in comics.*And Alana is the most awesomest, possibly the best of all the great Vaughn women characters.

    Has Saga become too much of a space SOAP opera? I feel like nothing particularly interesting happened in this volume. Is there an actual ending planned to happen soon, or the creators of this comic are going to make stuff up as they go, until they are completely sick of it?

    Oh. My. GOD! Just how good can this become with every volume?! I wish that Goodreads to have some kind of excellence star rating or something like that. OMG! Next to the 7th one ❤😍

Get with the programme!Now there's another hiatus to try and survive somehow... Sigh...
