the sads shouldn’t have hit me as hard as they did here, since i’d already read more than half of this volume in its single-issue installments, thanks to greg’s generous indulgence of my impatience; presenting me with issues #37-40 back in november. i thought i was prepared for anything this book had to throw at me, but dammmit - issues #41 & #42 had their own griefs in store. seriously - will these people (a

Still a mind-rape for me. Can't write a review through the tears.

Original Review:

I'm nearly speechless. That ending. Breathtaking.

You know when someone is telling the story right when I want to scream and rage and cry, no matter what the medium. The fact that this is a comic is even more astonishing.

Seriously. This one blew my mind. I've said before that all comics should use this as a standard to create by, and it's no less true now. Indeed, with all these things happening, I'm

This is going to be a short review as I don't do graphic novel reviews very well.

First off, be prepared for page 4, you may number them differently in your head but you won't miss the BIG surprise that's right in your face on that page! Lol!

I thought the book was awesome as usual and YES, there are sad parts in it. Isn't there always in one way shape or form?

We have a lot of the same characters to read, along with some new ones.

That's all, I really don't have too much to say, the ending is to

Well, jeez—that was rough. Hopeless resignation. Overwhelming odds. Tragic deaths (redeaths?). Veiny robot schlongs.

This series continues to confound and confusticate, but the quality of the storytelling remains high. Fiona Staples seems to have become the lead storyteller, and her art drives things forward in this volume, but BKV’s presence remains undeniably strong.

I never know what to expect from this book, and I’m never disappointed (except for when I am occasionally disappointed, so I gues
Well, I gotta admit...I'm relieved.
Every single review I've read had the words heartbreaking or tragic in it, so I'd been preparing myself for Hazel to die and somehow this turn out to have been narrated by her ghost or something.


But no. Hazel is fine. Whew!
So yeah, not everyone is going to make it out of this one but it's still a cool ride. And I'm looking forward to finding out how both of her parents deal with the aftermath of everything that happens in this book.

Finally reunited with her ever-expanding family, Hazel travels to a war-torn comet that Wreath and Landfall have been battling over for ages. New friendships are forged and others are lost forever in this action-packed volume about families, combat and the refugee experience.

I was worried going into this considering the fact that it's been a hot minute since I read the previous volume. But I needn't have worried, the world Vaughan has created in the Saga series is one easily slipped back into. A

This seventh installment is truly a masterpiece, and one of the most impactful graphic novels I’ve ever read. The ending of this is true and utter perfection, and the emotional range that Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples are able to evoke is truly something I don’t have words for. This but seventh volume truly shows why Sag

I am very dialed into this storyline now. For the first few volumes, it was so bizarre that, while I enjoyed it, it didn't click with me. Now, it is just as wonderfully weird, but I now completely enthralled.

I don't think this series will be for everyone and, in my opinion, the content tends to be very "adult". What that means exactly might differ from person to person. But, just remember that going in, and know that chances that things will shock you will last throughout. (view spoiler)

When did they start selling pure heartbreak in trade paperback form?

Depressing, but excellent.

Wow. Really moving sort of stand-alone volume that takes place on Phang. No spoilers, but I read this last night in one sitting, having heard it would be a powerful volume, and it was. It really was. Whew. Woke up with a bit of an emotional hangover from it. Hazel and family, reunited, go for emergen

Once again, Vaughn and Staples have delivered an incredible new volume of Saga. Finally reunited, Hazel's family desperately needs fuel and has to make a hazardous stop on the comet Phang. Bounty hunters abound such as the splendid Gwendolyn and Sophie who now has the Lying Cat, The Will who has run into some tough luck, and some new ones like The Match. Not to mention The Prince freaking out while Marko deals with his pacifism in a situation where his family is threatened. Most importanty, will ...more

It's been almost a year since I've read Saga 7 and I missed the characters. I do not have too much too say about this volume except that it is as good as the previous ones (if not better) and , unfortunately, pretty sad.

Sean Barrs
Saga continues to impress me. It has lost none of its awesomely weird energy.


And this is by far the best volume in the series for a very long time. The storytelling here is right on point.

I’m very critical of comic books at times because I often find them very linear and formulaic, often more so that novels. Many of the superhero-based stuff from marvel and dc tend to follow a certain pattern and become predictable and repetitive with their relaunches and different versions of the same cha

2016 was the year of the graphic novel for me--between Fables and Monstress , I was well and truly hooked, but it was Brian K. Vaughan's SAGA that blew my mind and showed me that, similar to (good) poetry, graphic novels could pack all the insights and feelings of a first person POV full-length novel into a third of the pages and an even smaller fraction of the words.


So I've been looking forward to Volume 7 ever since I binge read 1 - 6 last July.

“The more you care about someone, the more likely it is that your eventual parting of ways will be as sudden as it is baffling.”

Saga is the one graphic novel series that I care more about than any others. Mind you, it's not like I'm a graphic novel expert. I have read Paper Girls, Vol. 1, Giant Days, Vol. 1 and Lumberjanes, but none of them fascinate me like Saga does. Maybe because it's so ruthless but simultaneously so full of hope. Now, what really does not help the case are the countless, me

That ending. That goddamn ending. Hit me worse than all the sucker punches of cliffhangers from before.


But on a brighter note, I'm so so happy to be reunited with my favourite gang of craven deserters masquerading as peacemongers!

And precious new ones too...

As always, Saga continues to blow my expectations through the roof with its nonstop action, wit and grit.

WHAT JUST HAPPENED... :'( :'( :'(

This was the saddest volume so far. I can't even talk about it because I'm just so speechless. It definitely picked up the pace, the story moved on quite a bit and the writing and drawings were good as usual. At one point, I actually shouted "NOOOO" and scared the crap out of my family so prepare yourself for this volume! I'm so excited for the next volume so I can find out what happens next!
Volume 7 is the best saga has been in long time but also the saddest one, almost breathtakingly so.

I Loved this so much the characters are amazing and I missed them all I can't wait for the next volume to come out.

Reread: of course i loved this the second time it was amazing and i love all the characters 💕😍😍😍😍
Trina (Between Chapters)
A few entertaining moments, but not much really happened to advance the plot. The characters were pretty stagnant in their locations and actions considering the amount of time that passed. Some new characters were introduced only to have their part in the story end very quickly.

We've reached the point in this review where Trina makes the same complaints about the nudity.

Be aware that there's a giant d**k pic on page 3. The series sexualizes the female form in a voyeristic way and you might think

Overall, this is another solid installment within the Saga series. But compared to the others, I don't feel like it totally lived up to them. Of course, I'm not saying that because it was bad - it totally wasn't at all. I just felt like it was far less action packed.

Should you read it? If you've read the others, I doubt that's even a question. Absolutely. Yes. Without question. And if you havent read the others, go read them too. This is a fantastic graphic series that I think anyone and everyo
Alana and Co. have to land on the comet Phang, to refuel their ship. It’s a world that’s consumed by war. And therefore not exactly the place you want to take your young family. Especially not while you‘re pregnant and your five year old daughter is becoming a little challenging.


Right? But then for the most part there’s actually not that much happening. It’s all a little slow moving in this volume. The growth and changing of the characters is still interesting. It’s just not exactly the most ent

"For the first time, I can see myself as I really am, with all my countless sins in highest definition."

This story has been so much fun for me to follow over the last couple of years. I fully intend to keep up with the series for as long as it takes to become a completed work.

I'm devoted to these characters, and my appreciation for Fiona Staples' illustrations & Brian K. Vaughn's unique storytelling runs so deep.

All I can say is that if you haven't yet picked up this series here is the sign you
I like that the family is all back together again in the same place. It's nice.

This issue starts out with the ship running out of fuel and they land on a comet that is at civil war and they have to find a way to get fuel. They are they like 6 months or so. There is a bounty hunter on the comet and they are able to actually really kill dead the ghostly babysitter. How is that even possible? It is.

There are some high emotional stakes in this issue. I thought it was a great addition in this story

Why do we love Saga this much?

This question can absolutely never be answered with shitty answers like "the art's damn beautiful" or "the story is great". Sure those are the attributes of this graphic literature by Brian Vaughan and Fiona Staples, but you cannot give justice and won't be able to fully describe how good Saga is with those one-line descriptions. That is how f*ckin great this series is. So if you haven't read it, my god, can you just buy and read it?
