    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...

    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...

    After the traumatic events of the War for Phang, Hazel, her parents, and their surviving companions embark on a life-changing adventure at the westernmost edge of the universe.Trying to gather together my scattered thoughts regarding this newest volume in the Saga series is turning out to be rather hard, so I opted for making this bullet point list below:(Spoilers from here.)• The start of the journey took us to Abortion Town, after the unfortu...
  • Adina
    My favorite from the series so far and the 1st that got 5*. Now the wait for the next collections begins.
  • Raeleen Lemay
    YES YES YES. THIS is what I signed up for, and what I feel this series has been lacking for the past few volumes. This volume really brought back the ~weird~ and I'm here for it. Also the characters are pulling on my heartstrings again and here I am left wondering how they all feel so real...

    Re-Read 5/16/18:There's nothing much else I can say I didn't already say. :) I'm hooked forever.Original Review: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 b...
  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)
    Possibly my favorite volume yet???????? I love this series so fucking much oh my god
  • Sean Gibson
    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...
  • HFK
    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...

    “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...
  • Sarah
    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!
  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    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...
  • Red Panda
    My second-most-difficult read of 2017. Heart-rendingly brilliant.
  • Meagan
    Ugh this series was so good!! It had so much diversity and inclusion! Omg and Alana with her post-pregnancy belly sag/stretch marks was awesome! This series tackled some controversial social issues on such a remarkable way. I loved it! I loved every single syllable of it! Full RTC!
  • Trudi
    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...
  •  ⚔ Sh3lly - Grumpy Name-Changing Wanderer ⚔
    There is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said, so I'll keep this brief. Petrichor is just about my favorite character and she has a big part in this! Hazel is adorable and another favorite. It's fun to see her growing up.I liked the craziness of this one - the poop people! LOL. I love when you're thinking, "Did they really go there? Oh yes, they did." Which brings me to the political tones which were pretty heavy. I'd prefer less polit...
  • Chad
    Who would have thought a comic about love during a massive comic war would tackle so many social issues occurring today? In this volume we get a commentary into what could happen if Roe vs. Wade is overturned. Plus, some insight into what life as a transgender person is like. Oh, and poop people!
  • Maria
    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.

    That was.... political. RTC

    Actual rating 4.25 stars or even higherLet's play a game: let's think of as much synonym as possible to the word Good"- This was Good- Exceptional- Great- Favorable- Marvelous- Positive- Satisfying- Superb- Valuable- WonderfulSo I think you get the idea guys...I don't know how I can be surprised every single effing timeIf I would recommend a single comic series then it would be this without a doubt8 volumes and it is still going strong.Wow, just ...
  • April (Aprilius Maximus)
    Not the best in the series, but I can't wait to see where the next volume will take us!
  • Book Roast
    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.
  • Abbie (boneseasonofglass)
    I read this and volume 7 in 12 hours, and now I've ran out! It's going to be a long wait until volume 9 D:
  • Julie Zantopoulos
    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!
  • Beth
    Not my favourite so far...But I think it's setting it up for the next one maybe?Now I'm all caught up and have to wait, booooo!
  • The Girl Murdered by Her TBR
    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.
  • Batastrophe
    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...
