Book review: Saga Vol. 7 by Brian K. Vaughan

Saga Vol. 7 by Brian K. Vaughan
Rating: ★★★★★

From the worldwide bestselling team of Fiona Staples and Brian K. Vaughan, “The War for Phang” is an epic, self-contained Saga event! Finally reunited with her ever-expanding family, Hazel travels to a war-torn comet that Wreath and Landfall have been battling over for ages. New friendships are forged and others are lost forever in this action-packed volume about families, combat and the refugee experience.

I thought that Volume 5 was my favorite, and then I thought that Volume 6 was my favorite, but it’s official. Volume 7 is the best of Saga so far. So much happened. I loved this volume but also hated it, because what was that ending. I don’t think a graphic novel has ever made me cry before, but here we are. My heart is absolutely shattered and I have no idea how I’m supposed to wait until my hold on Volume 8 comes in.

If you’re not already reading this series, please do yourself a favor and pick it up. I can’t imagine you’ll regret it.

Book review: Saga Vol. 6 by Brian K. Vaughan

Saga Vol. 6 by Brian K. Vaughan
Rating: ★★★★☆

Publication Date: July 5, 2016

After a dramatic time jump, the three-time Eisner Award winner for Best Continuing Series continues to evolve, as Hazel begins the most exciting adventure of her life: kindergarten. Meanwhile, her starcrossed family learns hard lessons of their own.

I think Volume 6 of Saga might be my favorite so far. I liked the introduction of Petrichor, I liked how Hazel is growing up and playing a bigger role in the story, and I liked that plot twist at the end. I still love my buddy Ghüs and I wish Lying Cat was currently playing a bigger role, but I can deal with it.

Mostly I’m just amazed at how much I’m enjoying this graphic novel series.

Book review: Saga Vol. 5 by Brian K. Vaughan

Saga Vol. 5 by Brian K. Vaughan
Rating: ★★★★☆
Links: Amazon • TBD • Goodreads
Publication Date: September 9, 2015

Multiple storylines collide in this cosmos-spanning new volume. While Gwendolyn and Lying Cat risk everything to find a cure for The Will, Marko makes an uneasy alliance with Prince Robot IV to find their missing children, who are trapped on a strange world with terrifying new enemies.

Okay, so here’s the thing: Volume 5 of Saga was good, but it was probably my least favorite of the series. It’s still four stars, just… a lower four stars than the previous four volumes. (If that makes sense.)

I don’t have a lot of words to say about this one, but I love Ghüs so much. He’s maybe taken over Lying Cat’s place as my favorite character. He’s just so adorable and perfect.
