Luckily it seems to only be present in the first arc, but it does happen in about 10 instances for me. Won't bother returning since it seems to be a widespread problem, sadly (asked somewhere else and all but one person said they had this problem).(less)

Oh god. Why? I hate this. I hate this sooooo sooo much.

I consider these issues as a direct attack to my mental health.

Just why?

I started reading Saga almost two years ago, but because I took the decision to only read it in the form of these collected editions and not the individual issues or volumes (just because I like my graphic novels chunky), I have been waiting for this for over a year. But oh boy, was it worth the wait!

After 54 issues the story has really come a long way and it was in this volume that the complexities of each story arc culminated to an explosive mid-point. I have fallen in love with every single c

The ending destroyed me. It's such an incredible, heart-wrenching story.

And now I join the ranks of fans hoping Saga hiatus will end soon.

It needs to.

I had no idea when I picked up the first volume of Saga in 2015 that I was going to become so invested in the series!  I read comics as a kid, sure, but this is not your average comic and it's certainly not kid-friendly.

While Saga is full of sex and violence, it's also a beautifully illustrated tale of family and acceptance with social commentary on the pulse of current hot button topics.

Readers follow Alana and Marko, two soldiers from different planets in a long war to destroy each other.  Ala

Well, I'm finally caught up to the hiatus in the Saga issues. I had some pieces of this last installment spoiled for me before reading this, but not THAT twist. There's no way that closing page sticks, right? I think Brian K Vaughan has gotten more and more cruel as the series goes along, and that final page was one of many moments that were pretty shocking. The series just keeps getting better, even if I think it has a tendency to lean on the twist of "character in peril = character off screen ...more

I read this as single issues and I STILL cried in the end. This series is just so beautiful. I can’t wait to see what they do when they come back from Intermission because shit has really changed this time around.

God, this ending still hurts.

I mean, it really, really hurts. I have to give kudos to BKV + Staples for telling a story where these characters come together and hurt each other and it hurts but you understand it? Like, seeing all the threads that lead to Doff and Upsher, Prince Robot IV, The Will, Marko and Alana - seeing the path that brought them here makes sense but it doesn't make it any easier to stomach. It truly hurts seeing the end result.

So, while I'm sad, I'm just more in awe of how

EDIT: Stupid mobile not hiding spoilers. I removed them completely on the off chance I ruin something for somebody.

Finally! I held off reading the last couple of trade paperbacks because I wanted to wait for this beautiful edition.

I can't believe I didn't love Saga from the very beginning. I guess I just wasn't sure what to expect and it took me a little while to get the whole graphic-science fiction-fantasy world. But at some point it just clicked and it became one of my favorite comic series.

Brutal. Just brutal. So good and funny and twisted and so, so sad. Someday I'm going to sit down with allll of the books (when this is finally finished) and it's going to be a sad, wonderful treat to read them all in a row.

I can't be partial about this book. Saga is one of the best things I've ever read and the scope of it, the boldness of it, the sexiness, the romanticness... all of it is wonderful.

But also. Damn.

This graphic novel does not let you go. Original, creative, weird, funny, disturbing, powerful, heartbreaking.

Oh nooooo, Saga.
I ADORED the first two books in this series (yes I know you're probably supposed to talk about comics in terms of issues or whatever but I'm very new at this). Like, adored them so much I couldn't stop reading long enough between them to write a review (which I've been mostly too lazy to do the past few months for anything, but still). The first two-thirds of the story so far were masterfully done, hitting beat after emotional beat without feeling forced. I loved the art! I loved

Its always a pleasure to dive back into the world of Saga that writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples have crafted so successfully. Each hardcover volume in this series seems to end on a cliffhanger and volume three is no different. The wait between volumes can be excruciating!

This book sees different narratives developing simultaneously but the focus remains on Alana, Marko, Hazel and Prince Robot IV. The character development and growth of the core family of Alana, Marko and Hazel c

First things first. Fiona Staples is my favorite graphic novel artist. I especially like her face work. While reading other graphic novels I frequently find myself irritated by the sameyness of the faces and having to look for clothing and hairstyle cues to know who I'm looking at.

Saga: Book Three continues doing what Saga has always done, telling a family-based story while looking at disturbing real-world problems in an over the top space fantasy setting. This eighteen-months has the usual lov
“Brilliant. I’ve once again entrusted my future to a pair of lovesick imbeciles.”

Saga is my favourite series, and I wait for the hardcover collections so I can binge a catch up all at once. I purchased book three as a gift to myself and left it in its plastic for weeks, waiting for a perfect moment. Today as fat summer raindrops splashed on my roof, I spent a perfect uninterrupted hour savouring this book and it did not disappoint. The story, characters, and art are all spectacular and I get com

Better than the 2nd book, not as good as the 1st. Some characters from previous stories are sidelined (like Gwendolyn and Sophie) and I hope they come back. Cause for me, these kind of characters are the interesting ones. Don't really care for Marco and Alana, that's too much soap opera for me. In this volume, the interesting stories are from Prince Robot, Petrichor and the Will.

And yes, lots of character deaths, but some characters have been dead 2-3 times at this point and are still walking ar

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 always some comfort in that.

What a beautiful, inspiring and heartbreaking addition to the life of young Hazel, her family and ever growing collection of dedicated friends.

Once again the beauty and world building of this dynamic duo have produced a mature and nuanced novel in the form of a gorgeous graphic experience, collected into a quality hardcover experience.

I hope there are many more Saga collections to come.

Gah! Soooo many character deaths in this book! And most of them were people I liked! Plus that cliffhanger! Right before the creators went on hiatus? Not cool.
