This series continues to go right on breaking my heart, lifting it, sending it soaring, squishing it in a fist. I get attached to so many people. I laugh and head tilt when I should cry (because I almost never ever cry at text, or even text-and-graphic based narratives, or most narratives at all). But so many people. All the main people. The secondary group. The bad guys.

It's definitely been an interesting ride between the jobs and the task to relocate certain missing people again. I spend a lot of time reading our present child-future narrators narration and pondering what it means and how far it goes. Where we might be heading. But I continue to be swept up in the loveliness of it all the same every step we go. ( )

This series is still going strong and keeping me engaged. I like the changing alliances and unpredictability, and it's just a great story.
I'll probably never be comfortable with how sexually explicit the artwork can be, which is why I keep giving it 4 stars instead of 5. ( )

This was more in line with the fraught story-telling I'm used to with Saga than the previous volume. The body count continues to climb amid IV and Marco's attempt to get back to their respective family members kidnapped by Dengo, and Gwendolyn and company attempt to find dragon semen (no, yes, really). There is a lot crammed into this one volume and I was loving every minute of it until the bittersweet ending. ( )

Reviewing comics is a two-parter. The story drives most of the rating, but art gets a piece, too. Story-wise, with out getting into details, was a bit faster paced than previous volumes. Most of the pages were filled with tying up loose ends and the few remaining pages opening up new story lines. You still get an arch, and a climax, and all the good stuff that keeps us excited for a story's continuance. The art, on the other hand, was fantastic as always. Fiona Staples sure knows how to draw things in motion, one of her strong suits in my opinion. Another great read! I'm hoping the story is a bit grander and fuller in the next volume, even if it takes a bit longer to complete. ( )

Not as strong as some of the previous ones, but continues to be an engrossing saga nonetheless. ( )
