My Review: 

This issue, oh my god, all the feels. All the feels. Saga #23 left me without words by the time I finished it, holy shit. 

Perhaps I should have been more professional and concise with the previous sentence, but this issue was definitely more action packed than the previous issues of Saga and brings everything that the past issues have been building up too in terms of plot to a great cliffhanger ending. 

If you're not reading Saga, which, first of all, why are you not reading Saga? Are you okay? It must seem repetitive to those not currently reading the series that I and everyone else keeps praising this series and saying that the writing and the art is great for every single issue. Is it really possible that every issue is that good? Answer: YES.

Finally, we see Dengo collide (quite literally) with Alana and her family and the mess that it brings. Alana and Marko, along with their daughter Hazel, are going to be back in the spotlight on the current intergalactic war that both their home planets are currently in. 

Staples is great at drawing facial expressions which work really nicely with Vaughan's writing. All the characters have depth to them which adds humanity to the story and doesn't just feel like Character X is just a pawn to advance the plot. 

Saga Issue 23 is available here and at your local comic book store. If you want to start reading Saga, check out my review of Volume 1, which collects the first 16 issues and you can purchase it here

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