Multiple storylines collide in this cosmos-spanning new volume. While Gwendolyn and Lying Cat risk everything to find a cure for The Will, Marko makes an uneasy alliance with Prince Robot IV to find their missing children, who are trapped on a strange world with terrifying new enemies.
Saga, Volume 5 picks up right where volume four left off. Marko and Alana have been separated and they are doing everything in their power to reunite their family. We delve into Marko’s childhood and the war on Alana’s planet.
Throughout the volumes so far I find Hazel’s narrations to be inspirational and full of love and wisdom and they’re written so well with a hint of a matter of fact humour which I love, and it’s particularly interesting to read her perception of things of what is happening in the past (which these volumes are told) and the mystery of how far in the future she is narrating from.
Vol, 5 for me has really hit the nail on the head. More than the other volumes it has given us the focus of what “Saga” is, and the intimacy we have with these characters and how each of their individual stories are part of this epic journey of life. Every volume reveals more to the story but at the same time you’re not going to see everything that Brian wants you to see, because there’s simply too much to tell everything that is happening.This series is relatable to reflect our own lives where we see characters making mistakes and hurting those around them, but we understand why they’re doing it because we may ourselves have been in similar situations.
I’m at the point where like other fans of Saga, I now I have to wait for Vol 6 and the wait is already ripping my soul apart. Brian Vaughan certainly has control over my cravings for his writing, and Fiona with her beautiful illustrations.
