Saga Vol. 3 Review


Everyone involved in the Saga…saga, has gone through a lot since we first met everyone in Vol. 1. This time, the common thread weaving all of the issues together in Vol. 3 is the concept of rebuilding. Oh, and there’s also still the fact that everyone is trying to hunt down Marko and Alana for betraying their respective armies in hopes of maintaining their forbidden love.

This set of issues mostly takes place before Prince Robot IV confronts romance novelist Oswald Heist at his place. We get to see the new family put up their feet a little bit and contemplate their future in a world where they’re fugitives. Prince Robot, The Will and Gwendolyn are still hot on their tracks, though each person’s feelings towards the mission start to change as their personal circumstances come to the forefront.

All of the action is back-loaded, which is fine. I really enjoyed getting to know all of these characters on a deeper level and watch them wrestle with where they go from here. My only gripe comes from The Will and Gwendolyn’s arc through this book. The way that their rebuilding process plays out could have been pulled off better. As it reads now, it sort of doesn’t make sense why it goes the way it does.

By the end of Saga Vol. 3, most of the existing threads are closed, leaving the door open to begin anew. This is another heartwarming tale of love by any means that delivers on the quality you’d expect from the series. Not really sure where Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples go from here, but I’ll gladly follow them for the ride. With issue #19 out tomorrow, we won’t have to wait very long to find out.
