Sidetracked Sunday #5 - The Graphic Novel Edition


This month's choice comes from a series I absolutely love.  In fact, without double-checking, I'm pretty sure all the volumes have gotten at least 4/5 paws from me or higher.  Usually I grab the new releases as soon as I can from my library, but this time around, it took a tad bit longer - almost 6 months.


TITLE: Saga Vol. 8
AUTHORS: Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples
PUBLISHER: Image Comics
PUBLISHING DATE: December 27, 2017

FROM GOODREADS: 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.

CollectingSaga 43-48.



MY THOUGHTS:  It's a tad hard to review Volume 8 without giving too much away but I will say Saga continues to enthrall me and it's a series I hope doesn't end anytime in the near future because I'm not ready to say goodbye to most of the characters.  This volume does add in a new surprise love story but I have to be honest, I kind of saw it coming and I was thrilled.  I didn't get much Lying Cat but Issue 48 pretty much centered around my much beloved Ghus.  The art in this series continues to please and amaze and the story line remains refreshing despite encompassing issues 43-48.  Since it's hard to not spoil much else, let me leave you with some of the great artwork.

MY RATING: 5 PAWS

One of the best scenes in the entire volume!

You gotta love Hazel.....

Ghus goes to some pretty heroic measures to save his best pal Friendo.

So if you haven't started this yet, this summer's a perfect time to start.  Vol 9 releases in October!

  6. Saga! Yes! I only saw the love story coming and started shipping them like a page before it happened and was really excited when they kissed on the next page lol. They actually do seem good together.
