Saga, Vol. 8 (Saga #8) Reviews
After the traumatic events of the War for Phang, Hazel, her parents, and their surviving companions embark on a life-changing adventure at the westernmost edge of the universe.
Trying to gather together my scattered thoughts regarding this newest volume in the Saga series is turning out to be rather hard, so I opted for making this bullet point list below:
(Spoilers from here.)
• The start of the journey took us to Abortion Town, after the unfortunate events of the last volume, where solid comment ...more
I fear I cannot possibly be objective about this series any longer, I love it so much. For any fan left traumatized and/or depressed after reading Volume 7, you'll be relieved to hear Volume 8 is a much lighter and more hopeful adventure. There are still bittersweet moments, but not of the acutely devastating kind.
Vaughan and Staples have gone Wild West this time around and placed our intrepid crew in an arid (and possibly dangerous) western-esque landscape. Petrichor has stepped up and has bec ...more
If you’re interested in reading Saga, you’re about as likely to jump in at Vol. 8 as I am to wax my bikini line (now THERE’S a visual no one anywhere ever in the history of the world ever anywhere ever never ever needed), so, really, you’d be primarily interested in my take on this most recent volume if you’ve read Saga previously.

YES YES YES. THIS is what I signed up for, and what I feel this series has been lacking for the past few volumes. This volume really brought back the ~weird~ and I'm here for it. Also the characters are pulling on my heartstrings again and here I am left wondering how they all feel so real...
Not my favourite so far...
But I think it's setting it up for the next one maybe?
Now I'm all caught up and have to wait, booooo!
I read this and volume 7 in 12 hours, and now I've ran out! It's going to be a long wait until volume 9
When did you first know that you’d give up your life for someone? Okay, maybe you’ve never felt that way, but parents usually say that about their offspring, right? Personally, I think it’s almost always a dumb idea to sacrifice your own existence for others. Or worse, for some “cause.” If we were all a little more selfish instead of being in such a hurry to defend everything to the death, the universe would be a much less scary place.
there is so much in this one, it makes my head spin. and for ...more
