Well, I decided on whim to finally pick up the latest Saga while I was on my lunch break at work. Then, I got embarrassed because there’s definitely nudity within two pages. It feels good to be reading Saga again, but God, why wasn’t I expecting that? I left the Cafe to the back corner of the bookstore to read. I read it all during my lunch break, probably coming back later than I was supposed to.
I love Saga for so many different reasons but one of them is that it never leaves you unsatisfied. There’s always something going on and it’s never boring. It’s far from boring, actually. I usually leave Saga comics feeling kindly overwhelmed and waiting for what’s next.
While I finished this one, it definitely gave me a heavy feeling in my chest. This comic covered layers and layers of emotion and showed character development in the most heartbreaking way. I hate that I have to wait after Brian K. Vaughan’s year long planned hiatus. It sucked having to wait so long for this volume to come out but I don’t know what I’m going to do while I wait an entire year. I guess I’ll just pick up his other comics for now.
As always, the art in Saga is stunning. This one was no let down. The coloring is beautifully done and makes the story feel so much more lively. I loved all the cliff hangers at the end of every chapter but this ending didn’t seem to feel like one in a good way. I can’t wait for whatever’s next but I’m definitely hoping for some serious magic.
If you’ve recently read Saga Vol. 9, PLEASE let me know. I totally need someone to cry to.
