Saga Issue #19 Comic Review
Amanda Leon Friday, July 18
Title: Saga #19
Author: Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples (Illustrator)
Release Date: May
Publisher: Image Comics
New planet, new adversaries, and a very new direction, all from the same old Hugo Award-winning team.
Issue 19 is more of an in between issue, setting up the events that will happen in issue twenty. We are introduced to the new son of the Robot Empire and Alana's new job as an actress for intergalactic tv.
Hazel, Alana and Marko's daughter, is now a toddler and still occasionally narrates the story with a very worrisome comment on the last page.
Saga is very much a space opera, and the characters are incredibly grounded and I love how Staples draws the characters' facial expressions from panel to panel and helps the reader resonate and understand the characters without relying on only dialogue.
Alana and Marko are not perfect, star-crossed lovers and with all the craziness that they are a part of, they're still a family and they have to deal with the same issues all new marriages have.
As always, check out my review for the other installments in the series:
Volume One (Issues 1-6)
Volume Two (Issues 7-12)
