    Goddamn. This series. It's so good. It has such a density of narrative. Such quality of story.There was a series of four panels that made me burst immediately into tears. Vaughan. What the hell man. How do you keep doing this to me?

    My favorite volume so far! The art? Stunning. The plot? A+.Despite it being one of the shorter volumes, so much happened. I think part of the reason this was so successful was the time jump. The past three volumes have all occurred back to back, and there wasn't much time for new obstacles to pop up. Volume 4 has a new villain who actually frightens me as well as new strain on Alana and Marko's relationship. Not to mention Sophie has grown up int...

    4.5 starsWARNING: Potential Spoilers Ahead!You can really see how this family is going through the growing pains in this one. And, once again, Vaughn and Staples create a fantasy world that is so incredibly not fantasy. This volume? This is a real marriage.Can we please fight about it in the morning?Ok, so now that they aren't running for their lives, the mundane existence of taking care of a family sets it does with a lot of marriages.Al...

    Life is nothing but a beautiful imperfect gem.Problems in heaven. Our lovely fugitive couple struggles to secure a livelihood while hiding in some remote charted planet named Gardenia. Marko as a dedicated stay-at-home dad, Alana as a feisty disguised troupe actress. Tension rises, mistakes happen, and someone is bound to pay the price for it.A nice turn to a bit of emotional family drama, strange, yet moving, and with some little action as well,...

    A lot of people who came into my family's life looking like heroes ended up acting more like villains. I wish I could say the opposite was also true, but that was pretty fucking rare. see, this is why goodreads is so great - i wasn't in love with this volume until i read anne's excellent review, where she recontextualized the story into real-world situations that made me appreciate it so much more with her insights and anecdotes. that woman's got...

    The only complaint is that I wanted more Lying Cat, but it is PERFECTION. If you haven't read Saga because "everyone always talks about it, and I want to be the lame hipster who finds fault in pop culture," take a selfie, upload it to Instagram, pick out a complimentary filter, set you iPhone 6+ on your rug from Urban Outfitters, jump over the phone and GET OVER YOURSELF. If you aren't reading Saga you are losing at life.

    I'M SWALLOWING THESE BOOKS FASTER THAN ALANA DOES FADEAWAY DRUGS.And I don't know about you, but if that wasn't just some fantastic character development and maturity for Marko right there, then Mama Sun's a saint sent straight from the heavens. Would have loved to see more of the other characters than we did, but boOOoOoOoy oh boy am I still invested in this story than ever.I'm coming for you, Vol 5!!! No seriously, expect a review to follow in ...
  • Lola
    Alright, so this took unexpected turns. I’m not disappointed, but I’m not thrilled either. I wish Alana would stop cursing in front of Hazel, because I really hate when people do that in front of their child and I’m really annoyed about her doing what she did to keep her job and this new character Ginny trying to steal the spotlight. Not my favorite volume, but the graphics are still incredible, the characters and plot are still interesting...
  • Maureen
    SO GOOD SO GOOD.Especially in this one, every chapter was a freAKING CLIFFHANGER it made me need to keep reading.
  • Nat
    This review contains *spoilers*.I loved how close the family was at the beginning. Alana and Marko were so sweet with Hazel.They had this super adorable scene and then this happensThat one sentence made me tear up.I’m so shocked with what went down in this volume. I honestly can’t believe Marko and Alana were split up at the end. I care for the two of them together so,so much. My heart hurts for everything they’re going through. Hazel summe...
  • Kemper
    Four volumes and I've given each of them 5 stars.'nuff said.
  • Sh3lly
    I didn't like this one as much. Alana was bitchy and Marko was all emo. It was kind of funny how Alana had the job in that virtual reality soap opera. But then, (view spoiler)[her getting addicted to drugs sucked all of the humor of it, plus she was miserable, so it wasn't fun to watch (hide spoiler)]. Marko and the lady who gave Hazel dancing lessons.... it just felt like inserted drama. I guess it was to tease you because (view spoiler)[you thi...

    You know, I really cant get over how good this series is. I took maybe a month between reading the first 3 and then this one, and I was so excited to get back into the story. It's simultaneously adorable, creepy, sleazy, and incredible. Each chapter leaves me wanting so much more, and yet is so fulfilling. If you want to know more about what I think of the series, check out my other reviews. Otherwise, I can't recommend this enough. WEBSITE | TWI...

    3.5/5 StarsBuddy reading this entire series with my favorite Princess CelesteTook me a while but NOW THIS IS GETTING BETTER! Finally! Imo Volume 4 of Saga is the best so far. It's fast paced, the stories are great (it's finally going somewhere), it's more complex and the drawings and characters development improve much further. If the quality of this volume continue to the rest of the series, I can see why Saga received the acclaim it gets.Marko,...

    Re-read 4/19/17: Marko is still a stone cold fox tbhOriginal read 2015: Absolutely incredible. Also, Marko is a stone cold fox. Damn
  • Will M.
    This fourth installment was not as perfect as the last one, but it was still fucking amazing.The plot continues to thicken and the characters keep getting better at what they do. While this one started off slow, the pacing improved while nearing the middle. A lot of unexpected things happened plus an annoying cliffhanger in the end. I can't wait to read the next volume to know what's going to happen with (view spoiler)[ Marko and Alana's relation...
  • Steph Sinclair
    OMG that ending. How is it possible for this series to be so consistently amazing?! Need volume 4 immediately.
  • Melissa ♥ Dog/Wolf Lover ♥ Martin
    First off, I wanted to kill this stupid chic thing. I don't even know her name. I looked all over and thought I was losing my mind not remembering her name. All I can say is she's blue, she tries going after Marko and lets just say that little Hazel said it best in the book Her is ugly I had to get that out so now we can move on :-D Oh yeah, her name is Ginny! Who cares! So it starts out with Prince tv heads wife has a son while he is off in the ...
  • Lindsey Rey
    The best volume in the series to date! Exciting, action-packed, great character development, and beautiful artwork as always. Simply PERFECTION.
  • Jessica
    Love where this story is heading!
  • Trudi
    My fangirl timeline:First there was Scully and Mulder (the truth is out there).Then came Sam and Dean Winchester (saving people, hunting things, the family business).Recently there's been Elizabeth and Philip (Married Russian spies not to be confused with Royals)Now keeping company with all of these is Alana and Marko. Star-crossed lovers from the warring planets of Wreath and Landfall. Horns and wings aside, their love is universal and instantly...
  • Bradley
    Re-Read 5/14/18:So I'm revising this down to four stars. Why? Because it is, conceivably, the weakest of all the volumes. It's not that it's bad, but that so many crappy things happen... or are caused by... the characters I love the most.Too much whining, too much indulgence, and just when they're both acting the most selfishly, FATE has to intervene. So. Crap. This is the downturn. This is the start of a tragedy that, fortunately, is not forever...
  • Melanie
    Vol. 1 Vol. 2 Vol. 3 Honestly, I had to read something I knew I loved after watching The Walking Dead premiere last night. It's too bad that this volume decided to kick me more in the feels than that heartbreaking episode, but I digress. This volume really highlights the struggle of "non-practical" house dynamics. Alana is now a working mother, and Marko is now a stay-at-home dad. The resentment from both sides is really hurting their relationshi...
  • Sarah Churchill
    My favourite of the series so far. I forget how much I love the writing when I'm waiting for the next volume and then I'm like a kid at Christmas when I get my hands on it. Love.
  • Elisabeth
    So good! I need the next one, now!!
  • Sean Barrs the Bookdragon
    I don't like this one too much. It's not a touch on the previous three. The main problem is that it's all set up for the next few issues. There's clearly new and exciting things about to come and the groundwork was laid here (and that's it.)All comic book series reach this stage at some point though I was quite suprised to see it happen here so early. I think the story is becoming bigger with each new volume so more work is needed to carry it for...
  • Sushi
    Well, hellooo Gwendolyn. I think I'll forever be in awe that somebody actually drew you into existence. The Lying cat is turning out to be one of my favorite characters from this series. Loyal pets that end up saving the day always make for the best characters. I still don't give a damn about Alana and Marko and their boring issues, but I really like the Grandma and how Ghus has entered the picture. After all the bloodshed and things you can't un...
  • Abbie (boneseasonofglass)
    How is this series so addictive? I just read the whole thing in one go, it's so good! I'm kinda sad though because I'm not sure when i'll get to read anymore of the series :( My library only has up to #4 and they're too expensive to buy. I resent spending like 9/10 when i'll read it in about 2 hours haha How is this series so addictive? I just read the whole thing in one go, it's so good! I'm kinda sad though because I'm not sure when i'll get ...
