SAGA, Vol. 8 by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

Saga, Vol. 8 (Saga, #8)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finally got my hands on Volume 8 & 9, so today I decided to get stuck into this one. And yikes! Vaughan & Staples don't shy away from difficult, serious issues. And they do it in the most imaginative, colourful, humorous and violent way.

It was so good to catch up with all of the characters and meet a bunch of new ones. What Alana, Marko and Hazel are going through is heartbreaking. Not only did Alana and Marko lose their baby, but because she's still carrying him around she's performing magic, projecting an image of him, and pretty much endangering her life. But the planet they visit can help with all of this, if they can survive it.

It's also sad to see how Hazel has to deal with what her parents are going through. Yet, it's nice to watch her mature.

I love this quirky and totally bizarre story, and this addition didn't disappoint. There's no clear way to label Saga because it's a sci-fi, horror, mysterious, supernatural and erotic tale spanning across a dangerous world and the many beings trying to survive. It's so entertaining, and addictive!

Now I can't wait to see what's going to happen next...
