    oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best graphic novel 2018! what will happen?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...

    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, yvolume!But Warning: Spoilers for the previous volume!But I'm going to try my...

    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...

    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 Re-Read 5/16/18:There's n...

    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...
  • Lilith Black
    Oh my soul... Just one more left... 😢 I have no words to say how much l love this series!
  • Chad
    Who would have thought a comic about love during a massive cosmic 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!

    “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...
  • Matthew
    Saga continues to impress and shock. This series is definitely not for everyone and I feel like this issue went farther when it comes to controversial issues and content than any previous issue. It makes it one heck of a ride, but proceed with caution if you offend easily!For me, the controversial content (which I cannot specify without spoilers) is presented in a fascinating and moving way Saga continues to impress and shock. This series is de...

    This is one of THE BEST volumes so far - all about healing.(view spoiler)[ Petrichor and Prince IV? Squire is like a brother to Hazel? (hide spoiler)]Edit: This is just here so volume 9 can wreck your soul and shatter it into tiny, tiny pieces.
  • 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...

    My vote for this year's Goodreads Choice Award for Best Graphic Novel.(Well, after my write-in vote didn't make it.)4.5 stars and the slight edge over Vaughan's Paper Girls Vol. 4. Another series I enjoy more and more but ultimately don't feel the same love for as I do for this one.This volume had just the right amount of action, heartbreak, cuteness and oddball humor.Our favorite young family is in desperate need of some time to heal. But first...
  • Paul E. Morph
    My second-most-difficult read of 2017. Heart-rendingly brilliant.
  • 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...
  • MeaganCM
    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!
  • Sh3lly
    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...

    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
  • Trish
    Holy mothballs! This was ... it had action but wasn't as action-heavy as previous volumes. Instead, it packed a punch of a different variety.At the end of the last volume, we learned that Alana being thrown around the rocket ship caused her baby to die in her womb. Horrific enough, but now she has to deal with the ramifications, because a dead baby doesn't just magically disappear. Which leads us to the main topic in this volume: abortion. Or: th...

    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.
  • 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!
