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.
This volume picks things up what feels like five or six months or so after the last one left off, judging by the the state of Alana's advancing pregnancy in the opening scene where she and Marko are discussing what they should say to Hazel about it. Time has moved on for all of the other characters as well, although some, like Hazel's grandmother, Klara, and Lexis, who were inadvertently left behind in the Landfallian prison, and the reporters Doff and Upsher, do not appear in this story arc. But Gwendolyn, Sophie and Lying Cat are back, and as usual some new and interesting characters are introduced, kind of making up for some of the ones that were lost in the previous volume. But how long any new character - or even an old one - gets to stick around is always an open question.
One of the things I like about Saga is how complex the characters are. They're not perfect people, they don't always do the right thing, and sometimes when they think they're doing the right thing it turns out to be a horribly wrong thing. Another thing I like is the unpredictable turns things take, sometimes in directions that are unexpected and sometimes in directions that are just plain bizarre. And then there's Vaughn's definite George R.R. Martin streak when it comes to abruptly killing off characters. All of these things are what make each new volume of Saga something to experience - you know that no matter what, you're not going to be getting the same-old same-old.
Highly, highly recommended.
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.
I love the 'Saga' series. Its weird and refreshing yet somehow relate-able to our current political and world climate. If you're reading a review for this (Volume 7) it would be safe to assume you're familiar with the Saga series and I wont go into much detail as this just continues the plot. For those who ARENT familiar with Saga, go buy the other 6 volumes, totally worth it!
One gripe I have: similar to Game of Thrones there is so much despair and death that you have to be a bit of a sadist to keep reading Saga. I understand the need to keep things realistic and how not everything will turn out OK, but it seems every volume is 1 step forward, 2 steps back sort of deal.
Still, I love Saga no matter how many times it punches me in the gut.
