Saga, Volume Six

by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples


Volume Six of the Saga series finds us a few years into the future with Hazel in kindergarten. She barely remembers anything about her parents but for the ache of longing to see them again. Stuck on a planet where criminals and rejects are incarcerated, Hazel and her grandmother tried to make the best of it. She kept fervent hope that her parents will find her and break them out of prison. In the meantime, she’s living a semblance of normalcy as they bided their time.
Unbeknownst to her, her parents haven’t stopped searching either. If it would mean contacting their former enemy and making him their temporary ally like they did in the past, then, they’ll do what they must. They’ve been trying to repair the damage they’ve done to each other before and after Hazel’s disappearance. But they knew in their hearts that they can never be truly happy again until Hazel comes home.
Nothing about this series surprises me anymore. I don’t think it’s possible for me to hate them. Sometimes, I wonder if I’m biased because it’s the first graphic novel series that I’ve ever read and loved. But then I’d look at other people’s reviews on Goodreads then immediately realize it wasn’t a coincidence at all. This duo has been giving us everything we wanted with every installment; each one outrageously drawn and brilliantly written than the last. And we can’t get enough of it. It’s hilarious, dark, and tender all at the same time. It’s not a wonder as to why this is a very popular series. And for once, I don’t mind being a slave to a series at all. I hope y’all have had the chance to read this fantastic graphic novel.
