    When did you first know that you’d give up your life for someone? Okay, maybe you’ve never felt that way, but parents usually say that about their offspring, right? Personally, I think it’s almost always a dumb idea to sacrifice your own existence for others. Or worse, for some “cause.” If we were all a little more selfish instead of being in such a hurry to defend everything to the death, the universe would be a much less scary place.t...

    Warning: Spoilers for the previous volume!But I'm going to try my hardest not to spoil anything from this one, ok?Ok, if you read the last volume, you know that Alana's baby didn't make it. So, once the shock wears off, what exactly happens next? Now, I know this is touchy territory for a lot of people, but Vaughn went there anyway.Late-term abortion. If nothing else, you probably heard the sound bites about during the last US election. Good time...

    There's no way in hell I can call this series anything other than MY FAVORITE COMIC EVER.It truly has everything. Love, heartbreak, cute, strange, brilliance, funny, mind-blowing, edifying, and JUST PLAIN AWESOME.Did I mention that it's rather cool?After the heartache of the last volume, I've been anxious and anxious to avoid this one because of the things it might do to me.It did all those things I was worried about, but it had that right level ...

    If you’re interested in reading Saga, you’re about as likely to jump in at Vol. 8 as I am to wax my bikini line (now THERE’S a visual no one anywhere ever in the history of the world ever anywhere ever never ever needed), so, really, you’d be primarily interested in my take on this most recent volume if you’ve read Saga previously. So, I’ll say this: Vol. 8 is Saga at its Saga-est, which means it’s by turns irreverent, disgusting, o...

    It has been a few days since I finished the eight volume of Saga, and I did not really feel huge desire to come and review it because I have been quite busy with myself, but there is never a right time, so here we go.In the summer months we had this political shift that is perhaps now one of the biggest changes and happenings inside Finnish politics. Nationalists won a leading position in The Finns Party (when the members voted for a new leader f...

    I love Saga so much !! someone please send a defibrilator !!alright, short review because I have no energy. While this graphic novel felt especially fast and the plot has begun to meander a bit, my investment in the characters - and pure enjoyment of the story - truly brought this one forward for me. I also unfortunately feel that several of my favorite classes are getting less page time. Gwen, Sophie, and Lying Cat are still my favorites, and th...

    I loved this volume and everything that came with it! WHEW, it's got me hyped! This is one of the best comics, like no doubt about it. Art = amazing. Story = amazing. If you're not reading this comic, you need to drop what you're reading and start now. You won't regret it!

    “One day, a boy decided to break the rules. And that boy would become my brother”--Hazel Saga is clearly one of the great comics series of all time, sustaining an impressive critical and popular reception over years. And Volume 7 was powerful, an event of the year in comics, with a sad loss I won’t be specific about, exactly. So volume 8, with a western theme, is a little lighter, thank goodness, though it does have to deal with the afterma...

    My second-most-difficult read of 2017. Heart-rendingly brilliant.

    I fear I cannot possibly be objective about this series any longer, I love it so much. For any fan left traumatized and/or depressed after reading Volume 7, you'll be relieved to hear Volume 8 is a much lighter and more hopeful adventure. There are still bittersweet moments, but not of the acutely devastating kind. Vaughan and Staples have gone Wild West this time around and placed our intrepid crew in an arid (and possibly dangerous) western-esq...

    THE LAST ISSUE WAS SO CUTE. Saga is the gift that keeps on giving. Such an improvement since vol 7, too. The biggest highlight to me was the introducing of the new ship 🖤 Overall, beautiful & exciting.

    Not the best in the series, but I can't wait to see where the next volume will take us!

    I think over the issues 6 & 7 I fell out of love with Saga a little bit, but Vol 8 reminded me why I adored this. Fiona's art work is stunning as always.

    Just like every other installment of this graphic novel series we got heartfelt, touching, badass, heartbreaking content that I loved! This one was always going to be intense given the conclusion of the 7th installment but man did this have seriously heavy social commentary-that as always, was handled beautifully with stunning illustrations. Loved it!

    Am I suppose to wait 6 months for the next volume to be released? Yes self, because you don’t have any choice. Just suck it up.

    This volume was very character driven, not a lot of action took place. I’m very interested to see where the story goes next for many of our characters.

    Huh...that was...huhI was hoping the story would pick up momentum after the last volume, and I think this actually did the opposite. Slow pace, a few side plots that don't really go anywhere, and lots of moralizing and discussing issues that just felt like a slog and a bit too preachy. (view spoiler)[I found it really odd that Vaughan decided to have an examination of abortion in a story about stillbirth and that he chose to make it a political e...

    Hell yes! God I LOVE LOVE LOVE Saga! The artwork, the storyline, the characters and monsters, the absurdity and yet the wonderful social commentary under the surface all works marvelously. In Vol 8, things are just as interesting and quirky and sexy and violent as in the seven preceding volumes but this one is particularly satisfying in how It brings everyone together near the end. I hope this series never ends because it is truly one of the grea...

    It says something about this series that this heart-wrenching volume of storytelling is a relief after the last one. Oy, that last one was rough. But this was one was more bittersweet than bitter. Something that I have always appreciated about this series is its tone. Like real life, everything isn't all bad or all good all the time. Real life is messy, and you can feel many things at once. Real life has hills and valleys, and flat plains. One of...

    I feel like the arc was run all over the place. From tragedy, and ramdom deaths, to some sex consolation , to mercenaries more than a bit loco, and back to the square one with a life in the fringes. Not impressed, the phrases are become really cheesy.#43 ☆ #44 ☆☆#45 ☆☆☆#46 ☆#47 ☆☆☆#48 ☆☆Odié toda la historia del hermano.

    If there's one character that shines in this book, it's Petrichor. 🙌🏼💓 As always, Hazel is a bright and sassy kid. Can she stop growing up? 😭😭😭💖💖💖 She's so adorable ADHAJJXJAKDK! I want volume 9 ASAP.
