This break is being described as an intermission, so it is safe to say that Saga is about half over. That would add up to roughly 108 chapters, 18 volumes, or 6 Hardcovers.(less)

I love this series. And I trust Vaughan as a storyteller. And I know the world this story is happening in is a dark one, and grim.

That said, this issue is pushing up against the boundaries of what I'll tolerate. There's a reason I don't read The Walking Dead anymore. And there's a line between dramatic storytelling and emotional abuse.

You'd think 9 volumes in, Vaughn would stop shocking me, stop entertaining me, stop making me laugh, stop making me nervous to turn the page, and stop stabbing my soul with his pointy little pen.
But nope.

I don't want to give any spoilers and I don't want to be spoiled myself, but a big part of me is hoping t

When Saga isn't sticking a penis in your face, it's driving a dagger through your heart. It continues to be one heck of a ride--not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, nor for the emotionally frail. But, well worth it for everyone else. ...more
something about this volume feels like it's speaking to the world beyond the pages of Saga.

and some of it feels like it’s speaking directly to its readers, knowing that there’s going to be more than a year’s wait for the next part of the story:

Anticipation and dread aren’t opposites, just different versions of the same game. Both involve knowing that something is going to happen, but not knowing when. And whether you end up winning or losing, you at least get to reach a conclusion. There’s alway

I can’t believe... I have to wait for more now. I’m one of those assholes who wants instant gratification. My life is fucked. Guess all I’ve got left is anticipation and dread.

4 Stars? 4.5 Stars? IDK, decisions are hard.

Screenshot of GR update: I love how half the reviews for Saga Vol. 9 are just people screaming and cursing and having meltdowns in capslock.

Honestly, this was one of the best volumes of the series, in my opinion, in terms of emotion and characters and relationships. Alana, Marko, Hazel, Sir Robot IV, Squire, Petrichor, Ghus, Upsher, Doff---everyone was together and friendly and it was so much fun to see the dynamics among them. There wasn't any

Eureka Eureka, a 5 stars read!

As always, the artwork is fantastic, the humor caustic and fun, the drama interesting and uncorny and the imagination absolutely mind-blowing. If I say anything more, I’ll be spoiling the story. Can’t wait for Vol 10!
Oh, and they should have had a lying cat last week for the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing. It would have slept through the first half and gone stark raving mad screaming “Lying!” during the second half...

Why?? Just why???

This is the worst kind of betrayal! How did y’all survive that??? Because I feel numb and I’m in denial and I’m not okay! I mean I was able to take everything that was thrown at me from the start to the end (and trust me I survived a lot) but this is just too much! This is taking it so far and I wanna scream that this is not fair because they didn’t just do that. THEY DID NOT!! Long story short, this left me speechless and yes I cried.

”Anyone can kill you, but it takes someone you know to really HURT you. It takes someone you love to break your heart”—Hazel

So this volume is jaw-dropping in a way that, if anyone on Goodreads spoils it for you, you should probably consider unfriending them. So I won’t spoil it, but this is the Queen of Emotional volumes in an already emotional rollercoaster of a series that moves from hilarity (any two characters talking anytime) to cuteness (Ghus, Hazel) to adult-level graphic sex and profanit

Wow. My heart has been shattered into a million tiny pieces. This volume was heartbreaking and devastating but absolutely phenomenal. This series is nothing less than genius. The writing, the art, the story, the characters... everything is just brilliant. If you haven’t read this series yet, seriously what are you doing with your life??! Kidding... but read it!!!

I can’t believe we have to wait like a year for the next dose of Saga but fair play to Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples for doing what
This series is so weird!

I was entertained by this volume. It continues the story in pretty much the same vein as the past few volumes. So, while the overall storyline is very creative and unique, you will not find much in this volume that you have not already seen from this series.

Man, the art is just so out there and interesting. I could probably read this series without any dialogue included and my mind would be blown. In fact, that might be an interesting exercise – determining just what the

just excuse me which I cry for the next few days and never stop thinking about this ending. thanks
Everyone’s reaction to this:




I’m a dennis-shaped ice cube. (Not sure if still calling it a cube then is appropriate. But „I’m an ice dennis“ sounds kinda stupid.)

It’s virtually impossible to review this volume without spoilers, because let’s be honest, it’s all about what happens in the last two issues. And it is quite significant.

So I won’t be getting into any plot details.

This series is great. Everyone should read it. And this volume is no exception. It might break your heart, though.

I am so hard in my feels! I cannot handle it. This graphic novel series is so phenomenal, so hard-hitting, so raw and real and I LOVE it.

Hazel is starting to look so big and it's equally so cute and like "no, stay tiny forever". She's precious and bold and starting to take after her mama and I love it. this series, everyone!

The counts of dead bodies and penises are very high in this installment. Lots of action of every kind. Sad too:(
Not sure why, but this volume wasn't as good as the previous installments! It just didn't hold my attention the same way. 🤷‍♀️ ...more

HOLY SHIT. This volume RIPPED MY HEART IN PIECES. Goddamn it!!!! I BADLY WANT VOLUME 10 but then Brian K. Vaughan takes a year HIATUS. He just left us hanging with the most heartbreaking volume yet. Unbelievable. I'm still processing that ending.. I SCREAMED!! I love this graphic novel series. Such an awesome masterpiece. Let me just recover from that ending. I feel so betrayed right now. SEND HELP!

I didn't cry.
