From the Hugo Award-winning duo of Brian K. Vaughan (The Private Eye, Y: The Last Man) and Fiona Staples (North 40, Red Sonja), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. Searching for their literary hero, new parents Marko and Alana travel to a cosmic lighthouse on the planet Quietus, while the couple's multiple pursuers finally close in on their targets.

Collects issues 13-18

My Review: 

Saga is one of those rare comics that keeps your attention and aren't just entertaining for entertainment sakes but really good. The story is solid and both the artist and writer, Staples and Vaughan, complement one another and work terrifically together. 

Seriously. Go. Read. This. 

Continuing from Volume TwoVolume Three (which collect issues 13-18) follows Alana and Marko, along with their baby Hazel and their other companions (I'm trying to keep this review as spoil-free as possible, bear with me) to the planet Quietus, where D. Oswald Heist, author of Alana's favorite novel, stays on.

Heist's novel, which was masked as a trashy romance novel, but is actually a commentary/manifesto on the hatred between Wreath and Landfall, Marko and Alana's home planets.

Gwendolyn, Marko's ex, is still trying to find them along with The Will, a freelancer and his partner Lying Cat. I love Lying Cat and the sweet moment she had with Sophie, the former Slave Girl. It was so sweet! 

I liked that Gwendolyn wasn't just a vindictive bitch out for revenge and really, all the characters are human (well you know what I mean) and grounded which ties the story together and makes you want to keep reading.


As always, check out my review for the other installments in the series: 
Volume One (Issues 1-6)
Volume Two  (Issues 7-12)
