    This comic is so good it's starting to piss me off. Dear Mr. Vaughan, You should not be able to make me cry five times in the same fucking comic. Seriously. Twice in two pages? This will not do. It is neither seemly nor fair. Please knock that shit off. Fondly yours, patP.S. Please don't knock it off.

    This seemed like a small step down from the last volume. I appreciated how our cast of characters are developing and coming into their own, especially Sophie, Gwendolyn, and Marko's mother. (view spoiler)[Also, can we talk about how Hazel and her grandmother return to Landfall at some point but not Alana? WHAT HAPPENS TO ALANA? WHAT ABOUT MY BABY MARKO? (hide spoiler)] However, most of the story felt like filler as the plot wasn't moved that much...

    It's when all the cards are on the table that you realize how everything is going to play out.Showdown time. Fugitives and pursuers get together for a nice little talk. Alana, Marko, The Will, Gwendolyn and Prince Robot IV finally meet on the peaceful lands of Quietus, and you can guess it, not everyone is walking out of it in one piece.Starts somewhat slow, at least in comparison to the previous volumes, but it sure ends with a couple of bangs. ...

    only little about sharks, but still worth floating for SHAAARRKK WEEEK! another great volume in what is shaping up to be an outstanding series. there were even some sharks in it this time! briefly don't worry - i will be very careful here.what i liked most about this installment was how meta it was - there was so much time devoted to talking about books, the process of bringing books into the world, the joy of being confronted with stacks and st...

    I think this one is my favorite so far! :)

    I.Can.Not.Put.Them.Down.*obliviates brain for next three weeks until the rest of the books arrive*(view spoiler)[Reason for half a missing star (they seriously need to introduce that on here by now): as much of a hopeless romantic I may be, I feel like there's unnecessary love starting to bloom around every corner now- I mean, Gwendolyn here's supposedly already in love with The Will? Come on man, give me a break. (Unlessss she didn't actually me...

    MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListIn this volume Alana and Marko decide they are going to go looking for the author of the romance book they read. I just love that there is a book and author in these graphic novels. CLASSIC! Grandma Klara decides she's going too! They will not leave her behind. Of course things don't go so well when they first get there as Klara gets one of her ears ate off by some bugs. Joyful! But after they find their auth...

    These books are like Prozac..I just want to eat them up by the dozen.I think this one is even better than Volume 2. (Yes, I still haven't gotten vol. 1 yet)Our heroes Marco and Alana have gone to find their literary hero so that they can ask him questions about the book that caused them to become a couple. Then--stuff happens I wants all these books!!
  • Sean Barrs the Bookdragon
    The weirdness continues in the third volume of this excellent series. I must admit, I expected it to lose its dazzling nature after the first volume but none of its awesomeness has diminished. I have high hopes that it will remain persistently good unlike so many other comics that fluctuate in quality.The best thing about this volume is a cyclops author who knows how to make a fucking great entrance and a lasting impression: And from here the fir...

    “No story’s worth dying for"This review contains *spoilers*.This series is going by so quickly. I want to reach the last volume, but I also don’t want this to be over (I’ll probably read it anyway).I’m just really attached to the wonderful characters in this comic book.The fast paced plot, the funny dialogue, and the incredible relationships all make it impossible to put down. It's a completely unputdownable story.And so much happened i...
  • Kemper
    Just your typical story about a couple from opposing species of an interstellar war falling in love and having a baby, then fleeing the governments and hired mercenaries of both sides in a wooden rocketship with their ghost babysitter...Three volumes in and so far each one has been 5 stars. I'm pretty sure that has never happened to me before.
  • Megan Johnson
    Of the 3 volumes of SAGA I've read so far, I think this one might be my favorite. Okay, that's largely because it featured a writer and I'm a bit partial to them...but I felt that action-wise, it was just especially well done. All of the cliff hangers and plot points that were introduced in volume 2 are now coming into fruition and it's so much fun! Can't wait to get to volume 4! I've written reviews on volumes 1 + 2 as well if you're interested ...
  • Melanie
    Vol. 1 Vol. 2 This graphic novel made me more emotional than any other graphic novel ever has. This third installment will really pull on your heartstrings, so be prepared to feel all the feels. This graphic novel also deals with some pretty BIG themes: - Being able to love after a loss. - Following your dreams, no matter what.- How important, and memorable, it is to read to young children. - Society's views on the LGBT community, and how much it...
  • Sh3lly
    I think this was my least-favorite so far. While it had its moments, it felt like not a whole lot happened until the end. I think Gwendolyn looks awesome and is bad-ass, but she is also kind of one-dimensional and the jilted lover act is not my favorite. Plus, she doesn't seem very mature, she reacts without thinking. It's just annoying.It felt like not a lot happened on Quietus besides philosophical conversations about war and family. I really l...

    This series just keeps getting better it's like I can't NOT rate it a 5(Something I didn't say before tho ESP if you are younger this series has some explicit content so know that going in!)
  • J.L. Sutton
    The wild ride continues with Saga #3 as Alana and Marko, on the run, look both for a safe place for their family and their literary hero, D. Oswald Heist. There’s plenty of character development and quirkiness (which one expects from this series). I’m continuing to enjoy!
  • Steph Sinclair
    This just keeps getting better and better. So addicted.
  • Alienor ✘ French Frowner ✘
    I shall write a review to express the awesomeness spreading from this series pretty soon. Let's say, in the 47,589,478 following days. I think. Also, this : This is amazing. We should take it for a slogan or something.
  • Lilith Black
    4.5 starsThis actually gets better and better! Again, l really love Alana and Marko is such a sweet pie! Oh, and the thing that the story is told by Hazel?! Beyond love it! Don't really know what it stops me to give this 5 out of 5 but, oh well, l still have a lot to read until the last published volume.
  • Algernon (Darth Anyan)
    Three stars might seem a bit harsh for one of the best adult comics published today, but it reflects my disappointment with how little actual content there was in this third story arc. There simply isn't enough meat on the bare bones of the adventure to justify calling it space opera or even epic. It feels more like a resume, a synopsis of the actual events. I finished it all in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, and now I have to wait unti...

    I love this series so much, the characters are great and so is the world. Marko is the softest dad in the world, I love him so much. And Alana is such a fucking badass I'm shooked. The art is really beautiful too!This wasn't my favourite volume, but I did like Sophie in this one and the inclusion of a gay couple AND Gwendolyn being bisexual. (but I wasn't jazzed on some homophobic slurs being used eh)Also this cover is literally stunning I stared...
  • Petrik
    Buddy reading this entire series with my favorite Princess CelesteI'm blazing through this series and even though I'm enjoying it, I still don't get why the series is so highly acclaimed. It could be just me but I really wish this books doesn't have any actions at all, the story gets better, characters are explored more but every time there's an action going on the art really made me feel detached. Even though I prefer there's no action, in this ...

    Re-Read 5/13/18:I cried a little. I just got all choked up. Again.I cannot understand just how attached to these guys I've gotten. All of them. Every single last character. It's like I'm under a spell. A deep, dark spell.And then, to top it all off, EVERY SINGLE PERSON REFERENCED becomes ALIVE and BEAUTIFUL later! I swear, this is only getting better every time I read it. :) The whole thing. Is. Blowing Me Away. :)Original Review:I agree with the...
  • Katie.dorny
    This one was so cute! Seeing Hazel grow up and hearing her narration of her parents' lives and her childhood.But they really don't hold back on the death on this one.It's just as sarcastic and I'm slightly more interested in some of the sub plots than the actual one between Marko and Alana. Oh well.
  • Trudi
    Can this series get any better or more exciting, Other Barry? I'm here to tell you it cannot. Up against it, this series makes cyborgs as interesting as watching paint dry. Cyborgs -- watching paint dry -- even the ones with removable vaginas of the lighting up variety. Just the tip, Archer. You want to lose that thing or what?All Archer joking aside (and yes, that was totally for you Mara), Saga is a tremendous graphic novel series that continue...
  • Michael Finocchiaro
    The Saga series just gets even better with each volume. This one gives us some new characters, some exciting intrigue and more amazing and tantalising creatures. A must read for fans of graphic novels.
  • Calista
    This is my favorite volume of the series thus far. Events are building and characters are developing and it's pulling me right in. People die and characters collide. I do like that grandma and Heist got are falling for one another. The story is epic. Hazel is still on the run, still keeping ahead of all those chasing her. I am totally not putting many details in this as to not spoil. I will say Lying cat gets a big smack down. The Will is in trou...
