Goodreads Synopsis.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Is there ever going to be a volume of Saga that I don’t love? At this point, I’m not sure that they could do any wrong.

In this edition, the Brand, that girl and that ex-girlfriend (because apparently I suck at names) are on a quest for dragon semen in order to save the Will. Let’s just say that leads to quite the centerfold.

Dengo has kidnapped Alana, Hazel and Marko’s mom and he’s made a deal with the Last Revolution. A rebel group bent on destroying both sides of the war. Of course, the group just wants to use Hazel as leverage to get things they think will help in their war on the war.

Meanwhile, Marko has partnered with Prince Robot IV to find their missing children. It doesn’t mean they have to get along, but for a short period their mission is the same.

Once again, I was angered that I did not have the next volume at the ready. Soon my precious, sooooon.

That mother fucking artwork man!

Saga, Vol. 3 – Comic Review

I’m including this in my personal challenge of reading women authors because the artist is female and amazing.

Still on the run, Marko and Alana are searching for the author that influenced their love. Maybe he can tell them what to do next about their predicament.

This edition has more family bonding but still enough action to keep it from lagging. I enjoy Alana’s bad ass mother abilities to fight while holding and protecting her child. The group dynamics are sassy as per usual and enemies are still hot on their trail. We’re introduced to a couple of new characters who, I feel, add an addition depth to the effects of war.

The robot prince is ever disturbing and my favorite chapter cover was definitely the romance-esque novel cover of Marko and Alana. Like, I might put a poster of that on my wall because I love it so much.

SAGA – Comic Review

saga_vol1-1 saga_vol2-1

 

Cupcakes’ first attempt at an actual comic review:

5 out of 5 stars

Two star-crossed lovers abandon the war between their worlds to raise their newborn daughter while being dogged by bounty hunters left and right.

I mean, that one sentence literally explains the first two volumes in the series and I CANNOT GET ENOUGH.

Each time I finish a volume, I fight the demanding urge to run to the local comic book store and pick up the next one. Why do I resist? Trying to save money is stupid. ._.

BUT, it also means one day I’ll get to go on an epic book/comic buying spree and THAT will be an epic adventure.

Not quite as epic as out-running bounty hunters across the galaxy though. For that, you have to pick up SAGA.

 

Comics – A Review

Well look, I’m not very good a reviewing comic books. I like them. I indulge in them sporadically. I have no idea how to write a review about them. So here are a couple that I’ve recently enjoyed to a great extent (I rated both 5 stars) and that you should check out if comic books are your thing:
