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. ( )

I remember reading this and just not vibing with it originally. Cut to a couple of years later, and a buddy convinces me to try it again, and I was HOOKED. Cut to several years later yet again, and re-reading the entire series in anticipation of the release of the very long overdue next issue in the series after hiatus, and damn this story still holds up. I don't know why I didn't like it the first time. It's funny, brutal, violent, naughty, but at the center of all of it, the story has heart. So glad I'm getting to enjoy this series all over again.

Complex, challenging story continues. No easy answers and I don't see a happy ending in sight. ( )
