Saga, Vol. 5

By Brian K. Vaughan

Rating: 5 stars

Writing reviews of Saga is starting to get a little dull, really. Each volume is brilliant and moves the story in new directions that throw me off-balance but never to a degree that I stop enjoying the story or caring for the characters. Fiona Staples’ art also continues to be gorgeous, bringing the characters to life in their weird, sexy, horrific glory.

Alana and Marco have been separated by the wannabe revolutionary, Dengo, of the Robot people and while Alana tries to deal with him to recover Hazel, Marco has to team up with his enemy, Prince Robot IV whose child Dengo has also kidnapped.

This all happens in parallel with Gwendolyn and Sophie’s quest to find something that can save The Will, and doesn’t that storyline come with a kick to the gut!

I basically like all of these people and just want them to all talk over their problems, work them out and all live happily in a Friends-style apartment block where they’d be in and out of each others’ homes all the time. Yeah, I know. A guy can daydream though!

I don’t know how much Saga there is to come, but I look forward to the time when I can basically sit down with a bit pile of graphic novels next to my chair and just work through the whole story in one sitting.
