Review--Saga, Vol. 6

Saga, Volume 6Saga, Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So romantic! So wonderfully on point! So bloody! *Le sigh* The latest volume of Saga brings much of the story full circle as our "Romeo and Juliet" hero and heroine, and their daughter Hazel, find much of what they've been seeking. There are still crises and issues to be resolved, and threats hanging over them, but this volume was one of the most satisfying of a very satisfying series. There's a focus on the healing power of love and romance, and romance novels once again play a role in the narrative.

I enjoyed seeing Hazel become more of a person too. Up until now she'd been an occasional narrator of her backstory, but I'm liking her as a child capable of action and agency.

If you haven't been reading Saga, you must start with Volume 1. Really, I insist. The story, art and characters are so awesome you don't want to overlook a single bit of it.
