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.
  • YAY 😀 So glad you loved this one sweetie. <3 I love how you love all of these graphic novels. I am pretty curious about them, but unsure about the plot 🙂 But still. Sounds pretty exciting 😀 Thank you for sharing your lovely thoughts about it. <3

  • I need to get caught up on Saga ASAP! I love everything about this graphic novel series.

  • I still haven’t had the chance to read any of these just because I never end up seeing them anywhere… which is such a shame because I want to pick up this series ASAP!

  • I need this volume! I can’t wait until I can check it out from the library ahhhh. Honestly I am not surprised either, and I might be biased as well. But man this series is just so so so good. Everything else just doesn’t compare.

  • Oh no, she has been what? I am so behind, stupid library

  • It’s always nice to find a series you can’t help but adore!

  • I have been wanting to get into a graphic novel. I’m so going to have to see if my library has this series. If you love it this much… I need to read it!

  • Great to hear you enjoyed and the characters continue to deliver

  • Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    I don’t think you’re biased at all, actually. Everyone and their next door neighbor really loves this series. I only own book 1, but I should really get the others.

  • I feel so sorry for her since she doesn’t know her parents and SO longs to do so. 🙁 I hope that in the end she is happy and they all find each other. I’ve never read a graphic novel but it looks like they’re getting more and more popular because I’ve been seeing more people reading them. 🙂

    Lovely review, Joy! 🙂

  • A lot of people are picking this up or maybe it’s just recently that I noticed it. It sounds addicting! I wonder if my library has this…

    • Oh, Braine. I really think you’ll love this one. I hope your library has it!

  • I have been hearing so much praise for this series. I haven’t read any graphic novels other than Archie Comics, but I really want to try this series. Everything about it just sounds great!

    • Yes! I wasn’t a graphic novel reader before I read this series. And I haven’t really found another that’s nearly as close to the addicting characteristic of Saga since, but everyone’s opinion of these comics are dead on, Nick. I hope you’ll give it a go someday. It’s got a forbidden romance, worlds beyond our imagination, story of family and friendship. It’s really awesome!

  • Jenny @ Supernatural Snark

    LOVE the sound of this one Joy! I don’t read graphic novels often, but every time I do I’m enormously impressed and vow to read more. I clearly need to add this series to my list!

    • Jenny, this is one that I can totally back up. It’s a tremendous series that’s been praised by many. And for once, I completely agree.

  • kindlemom1

    So glad you found a series to really love, there is nothing better book wise than that. 😉

    • Rare, indeed, Ali. I hope you’ll give it a go someday. 🙂
