    Bit of a filler issue, but that’s to be expected as it’s sliding the pieces into play. I hope Bombazine reappears more and the Brobot and Hazel thing has some good comedic potential. This does have some zingers of one-liners though.

    Amazing art in ever new directions for Fiona. Just, wow, cool fish! Mom returns, with a new (bad) haircut, having made her pay day. And the band is breaking up, seems like, with change being constant, and you know, that's what bands do (cf Get Back, on the Beatles). Yeah, the bad guys are still trying to kill off our Alana, so maybe a change will do us all good. But the fish figures in here.

    this one was kind of a drag. i think team saga may have overestimated our interest in all of these new characters. review to come, i guess.

    “So what, you’re condemning yourself to this rotted-out warehouse because you feel guilty? About shit you can’t change?” Ever since the return of this series the issues have been a slow return to a well-known and well-loved world. Charming and reassuring in all the familiar faces and edges but quite disquieting and unbalancing with every unknown. It seems that the gears are revving up with this new part of the story, we're careening out of control. After a series of false starts I've been “So what, you’re condemning yourself to this rotted-out warehouse because you feel guilty?

Charming and reassuring in all the familiar faces and edges but quite disquieting and unbalancing with every unknown. It seems that the gears are revving up with this new part of the story, we're careening out of control. After a series of false starts I've been waiting quite eagerly for something truly shocking or heartbreaking to happen; bracing myself with each new issue and just getting disappointed every time. So, to see that hope finally being satisfied is quite nice. Most of what we see here was well between the realm of expectation. Paying out all the build-up that we had seen in small moments. It's not exactly how I imagined it to go, but it does open interesting and worrisome avenues for the story to play with. If nothing else, that ending was worth all the wait. It is a truly freaky turn of events that feels absolutely appropriate and keeping in tone with everything else this series has always done. Bringing the messiness of life, once again, to a head. “Going through life solo is no picnic, but it seems like partnerships inevitably lead to trouble. Maybe there’s a reason the word “collaborator” has become synonymous with “war criminal”. ______________ Now, why would you end the issue like that?

    Short, sweet, and moving right along. I was glad for (view spoiler)[the skull destruction. Them flashing it all over the place was getting a bit gruesome. (hide spoiler)] And that fish is stunning, isn't it? Fiona's art still floors me. Short, sweet, and moving right along. I was glad for (view spoiler)[the skull destruction.

    Another short issue. We get closure on the current plot bunny and there are surprising developments with the crew. Off to new beginnings. Oh yes, and another surprising secret at the end.

    Hate to join the chorus of growing disgruntlement but Saga was better with Marko, not all these new people.

    Saga 59 In this issue, Alana returns from her drug deal mission, to the pirate spaceship. There, the band is breaking up and there's a lot of conflict. Two of the band members decided to leave with Alana, in order to move to a different planet. On the other hand, Bombazine is forced by the Skipper to stay in the pirate spaceship. At the same time, Gale, who was assigned to kill Alana, Hazel and everyone they know, is getting much closer to them. This was a very nice issue.

At the same time, Gale, who was assigned to kill Alana, Hazel and everyone they know, is getting much closer to them. This was a very nice issue. While reading it, it felt like not much happen in it, but there are actually some pretty big changes that occur in this issue. Alana and her family leave the pirate space ship, they get separated from Bombazine, the assassin is getting closer to them and at the end there's a pretty big reveal. My favorite part of this issue was the dialogue between Bombazine and Alana, before they got separated. He argued that Alana is a horrible mother. That's a pretty strong argument to make, but it holds up. Undoubtedly, between Marco and Alana, Marco was way more fit to be a parent and since he's now gone, Alana has to do all the parenting by herself, which can be very challenging by itself, but especially for someone with Alana's personality. Other than that, nothing else really stood out to me from this issue. The final reveal was very surprising, but we'll have to wait for the next issue to see what's gonna happen with that. Furthermore, Gale seems like a very interesting character, even though he's presented as a vilain. That's not surprising though, because Brian K. Vaughan has the ability to write great and weirdly likeable vilains. Overall, this was a pretty good issue, with great dialogues and, as always, incredible artwork by Fiona Staples.

    Oh my gosh!!! He told Hazel….!!! I don’t know what she’s gonna say though like what do you say to that situation!!!! Because technically he isn’t…. Definitely not spoiling this! But if you know what I’m talking about I don’t know what I would do in that situation. But I did think it was cute ☺️

    Brooooooo! Why? Also, I’m intrigued because the last issue made it look like we’re going to reunite with some old friends.

    I still love this series, but each issue leaves a bitter-sweet taste in my mouth. I'm still not over Marko's death. Smh. And how many times must we be reminded of his death with his damn skull being shown almost every issue? For each issue, I hope there will be a twist, and Marko will be returned. No twist yet. At least not on that front. And the conversation between Alana and Bombazine was painful. This is another solid issue from Vaughan and Staples.

    More ominousness, and a sad goodbye. What is said about Alana is kind of true, though. And that ending, I don't know what to think yet. More ominousness, and a sad goodbye. What is said about Alana is kind of true, though. And that ending, I don't know what to think yet.

    This has to be one of my favorite covers ever. Just like the art, the story continues to be amazing. While there are no huge leaps in the overall plot, there's lots of emotion as it continues to move forward. This has to be one of my favorite covers ever.

    Fiona Staples serves once again with a breathtaking cover. So many of Saga's single issues' covers should be art prints, they're just this good. Story wise, I'm getting a bit concerned about them being able to wrap up all the arcs, especially since they keep introducing new characters and hinting at their background being more important than one of a temporary supporting cast.

Doubting the interest of that last panel revelation, too, unless ultimately Hazel and Squire put a stop to the war by unifying the three main nations through their alliance... But this would work even if they remained siblings. I'm a bit worried Saga's decided to have fucked up stuff happen just for the sake of it. Still, shock has brought out some of the best in this series (so far) so I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt, and I'm hoping it all works out at the end of this arc.

    Not the best installment. I love this series but sometimes, there are filler issues that really don't hit the right chord for me. This was one of them. Sure, the family is taking a new direction and shitty people (you know the assholes I'm talking about) are still planning shitty things, but this part of the story is starting to drag a bit. Maybe this is why reading comic books in Volumes is a lot more fulfilling. You don't have to wait for the next one. Also, that ending was a little 😵‍💫 for me! Not the best installment.

    The sibling relationship that Hazel and Squire are developing is sweet — and hopefully doesn’t turn too weird. My 3-year-old daughter has been an incredible big sister to her now 10-month-old brother, but she’s really now just starting to be able to play with him. I love seeing them develop a strong friendship. Even though Hazel’s childhood is strange and playing out at a galactic scale, kids are still kids everywhere.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was such a good one, I actually can't wait to see what the repercussions of Squire telling Hazel he loves her are gonna be. Also, what a great dialogue that Bomb-dropping reality check by Bombazine was, it was a cool turnaround for the character (he just gave me boring vibes up to this point). Honestly, good thing I waited to read this one instead of reading it right when it came out because I can't wait for the next one, and it feels less bad to wait 10 days than 30...

    2,5/5. Just when I started thinking this new run will go back the way it was, we get this issue, where not much happen, running around in circle yet again and I just think I will eventually drop it. I continue to give it another shot after another one, but I just don’t get the same fun reading them… One or two more and we’ll see…
