Saga, Vol. 9 (No-Spoilers) Review

saga

Without hinting too much at what goes down in this volume, let me just say it is one you will immediately want to follow up with the next installment upon finishing. Unfortunately, Saga is on a lengthy hiatus for the time being, so be prepared for quite the cliff hanger AND quite the wait.

This was another solid volume to the series, but daaaaaamn. SO. MANY. FEELINGS.

I swear, if Saga isn’t busy wowing you with its great story-telling, compelling characters, and unique worldbuilding, its preoccupying itself by ripping your heart out and eating it raw. Saga continues to expertly pull the reader up with its highs and plummet them to the hard, cold ground with its crushing lows, and that’s one of the things that makes me love it so. You can never tell what is going to happen, and because of that you are reminded time and time again of the harshness that comes with real life. I think it makes me that much more invested in the characters of this series. Nine volumes deep, and Saga continues to keep readers on their toes and surprise them.

With certain scenes causing many of us to no doubt scream at the sky “Say it isn’t soooo!” or drop to their knees while crying, “NOOOOOOO!” all dramatically and what not, this hiatus is going to be like torture. Please see the below image, to see my mental image of Brian K. Vaughan vs. his readers at this point. I think it should be fairly obvious who is who. πŸ˜‰

As if there was any doubt, this is another 5/5 star installment from me for Saga.

  1. Oh damn, this sounds pretty awesome ❀
    I always tell myself i will read more graphic novels and this was high on the list. Haven't managed to read it this year, but i did manage to read Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Defo planning to read Saga next year.

    1. Nice! I’m looking forward to reading The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina soon as well. πŸ™‚ What did you think of it? I really liked season 1 of the show and the Christmas special, so I’m really excited to read the comic.
      And yay, I look forward to finding out what you think of Saga when you give it a go. It’s such a great (and addicting) series! πŸ˜€

      1. I really enjoyed the series. Great atmosphere, and even the music was really good.
        I found the graphic novel quite different, but still really fun.

  2. Screaming at the sky is always fun haha. I like the parquetry on the floor. I’ve installed that pattern several times and after a while it messes with your head hehe. Also, how did you find that picture of my mum and dad. I was sure I deleted all the copies

    1. Hahaha The line about your parents gave me a good laugh. πŸ˜›
      Also, I never knew what that type of flooring was called. I never even thought about it having a name before. Always interesting to learn something new. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! ^_^ I actually don’t recall a reason being given for the hiatus. I’m not sure if it’s to work on different projects or to just take a break. I can’t wait for it to come back though! The wait is going to be torturous.
