Ms. Staples has done a fantastic job in the artwork in every volume of this series. She draws the various alien bodies adroitly. She does a nice job constructing worlds, but her strength is in facial expressions and the emotions that she wishes them to convey. The art is beautifully colored.
In interviews, Mr. Vaughan said he wrote these series partly for his wife, who had a hard time following comic stories and the movement of panels (Saga is very easy to follow, so is a good book for new comic readers to pick up (though it is for mature audiences due to language, nudity and violence). Now 40, Mr. Vaughan is using Saga to explore couple and family dynamics. These include communication (including breakdowns and fights), loss, regret, loyalty, passion, anxiety, and obligation. The topics he is covering now would not be covered by a 25 year old writer. He is allowing the experience of life to alter what he writes about. Bravo.
My complaint for this book, even more so than previous volumes, is the sledgehammer of personal politics that the author bashes over your head at every opportunity. The analogies to global politics and social issues are so thinly veiled that he might as well have a talk show on cable TV. having said that, if you agree with his world view, I'm sure that this comic is the best thing in the universe.
As far as this volume is concerned, I enjoyed the march towards an inevitable conlusion: the more characters you introduce, the more you must eventually cull. I wasn't sold on Rogue One until the last fifteen minutes of that movie. Similarly, I didn't know how much I liked this story arc until the last couple pages and then I was satisfied with the direction we went with these issues. The last volume seemed to almost have had a natural conclusion for the book and this volume managed to wrap an entire story in its pages and yet set up possibilities for the future.
For me the story is beginning to spin off into no particular direction, all of the plot lines are fading in the distance. Some have closure, some are just ignored.
I really love the artwork and some of the non-derivative ideas in this comic, but some of the ideas are more young-adult trendy themes.
I think the comic is good quality over all, but just not really my type of thing in the long run. Maybe others enjoy this style of writing.
Though darker than previous installments, Saga 7 never loses the humor or inventiveness that make the series so special.
My only nitpick is that the themes and issues felt a bit more news-of-the-day than previous installments, at times feeling like Vaughan crafted the story solely to serve the metaphor than let the metaphor serve the story. But Vaughan navigates those choppy waters with aplomb, and it makes for a story that seems to have more bite, than some of the previous trades which felt lackadaisical in places. It's a give and take I can take.
Can't wait for the next one.
