Vaughan and Staple's graphic, explicit epic loses no momentum in this third collection. We take a small step back in time to see how all of the characters got to last volume's big cliffhanger then return to it around mid-volume to continue forward. Each of the parallel threads are interesting, well fleshed out and compelling, and it all fits together wonderfully.
There are a lot of big moments, twists and dangers leading up to major developments for everyone. There are also a lot of intriguing themes and subtexts hinting at where Vaughan's overarching tale might be headed. The fantastic part though is that all of that is accomplished while keeping the characters firmly in focus as the driving force of the comic. This story is phenomenal because it always about the characters, and they are fascinating, multidimensional, and make it easy for the reader to care about what happens to them.
The storytelling has evened out nicely and the pacing and balance is perfect here. The outrageousness has become more and more integrated into the story and less and less used for surprise shock value. The comic still has the same general atmosphere and is still pushing all kinds of boundaries, it's just all coming together a bit better than in the earlier issues.
For me this is the best volume yet, and Saga continues to be a brilliant, wild read for those who can handle the approach to the subject matter.
This story picks up the cliff hanger ending of book 2 with the main characters trapped by the robot prince, it still amazes me that something so corny as a robot prince isn't at all in context of the story. This volume covers a lot of back story but still manages to advance the main story line quite a bit.
I love the humor. I generally laugh out loud at least once a book and find a smile on my face throughout But when it turns serious you find tears gathering at the corners of your eyes. I haven't broken down just yet and started buying the comics as they come out but volume 4 will definitely be preordered. If you're reading this and haven't started the series do. If you have and are wandering if it's kept true to its beginnings it has.
For those series regulars it is important to say that the book with every release becomes better, which makes it a treat in the world of comics, where it certainly competes among the best titles currently on the market.
The last installment ended with decision of Prince Robot to wait for Marko, Alana and their child to come at the Oswart Heist's home on the planet Quietus, unfamiliar with the fact that they already for some time are hiding there. For that reason most part of this third installment is devoted to their journey to D. Oswart Heist's home, while author partially goes back in time to give reader more information about what happened. On the other hand we are able to learn what is happening on some other secret planet with Slave Girl, The Will, Lying Cat and Gwendolyn.
The author has made a good decision to go back a little with his story because in that way except giving better background, he also opened the possibility for a more detailed characterization of the main characters together with introducing some new, while in same time a description of the world in which the action takes place is becoming more and more detailed and appealing.
Vaughan with this extension continues the excellent comic book series which would be a shame to start reading from this installment, and even if you do not like the story by chance, you will definitely be delighted with Staples drawings that are of truly exceptional quality.
Therefore, all recommendations to this title and cannot wait to be continued.
