Review: Saga Volume 5 by Brian K Vaughan
Published September 9th 2015 by Image Comics
Multiple story lines collide in this cosmos-spanning new volume. While Gwendolyn and Lying Cat risk everything to find a cure for The Will, Marko makes an uneasy alliance with Prince Robot IV to find their missing children, who are trapped on a strange world with terrifying new enemies. Collects Saga #25-30. (Goodreads)
It’s been about eight months since I’ve been in the world of Saga, but volume 5 did an excellent job of recapping what has been going on, re-introducing the characters, and expanding the universe and story lines. The cast was expanded with the addition of “The Revolution”. The characters continue to be a strong point for these stories. I miss Izabel though. The family is scattered in this volume but they’re working their way back to each other and the journey is quite action packed and enjoyable. Saga is known for it’s nudity and deaths to some degree and the nudity was relatively tame minus a few panels. There were some unexpected deaths. The art as always was amazing and the panels really helped transition from one story line to the next without confusion. I am sure it’s going to be awhile before the next volume so take your time with this one. Saga Volume 5 gets 5 stars from me.
