    THAT'S MORE LIKE IT

    I've run out of ways to praise

    at this point so I'll just say that it continues to be one of the most entertaining, creative, funny, heartbreaking, profane, graphically violent, and well drawn comics I've read.

    Over the last couple years, I've talked a lot about how some things bother me in storytelling.

    One of the things that bothers me the most is when a child is put in danger in order to grab cheap dramatic tension in a story. Even worse is when a child is hurt/killed/threatened order to build character or establish something about the world.

    90% of the time it's lazy storytelling of the highest degree, and 9% of the time it's little more than emotional abuse. I think of it as roughly equivalent to f

    90% of the time it's lazy storytelling of the highest degree, and 9% of the time it's little more than emotional abuse. I think of it as roughly equivalent to fridging someone's love interest.

    Interestingly, Saga seems to be the exception to this rule for me. There are children in the story, in peril, and it feels real, but I never feel like the storytelling is cheap or making a bullshitty grab for my emotion.

    One of the many reasons this comic is amazing....

    Not quite as good as the first four, but still a solid addition to the series.

    Volume 5 picks up right where volume four left off. Alana and Marko are doing everything they can to reunite their family. I love this volume, but it was so, so heartbreaking.

    This series just keeps getting better and better. The characters are so well-drawn and memorable. I can't wait to start reading volume 6.

    Alana’s love for Hazel is heartwarming.

    And I’m so glad Marko and Alana got reunited, but now I miss Hazel so much.

    She’s grown so much. And I’m really sad.

    bad things happen in this one that made me sad. however, dead doesn't always mean

    , as i learned in volume 6, even if it's a qualified return of a character i was just starting to dig.

    but it's more than we get in the real world, so i guess i'll take what i can get.

    **************************************

    so much for restraint. i told myself i wouldn't burn through them, and look what i've done.

    but i swear i will hold off a while before reading the sixth one.

    yeah, yeah, yeah....

    review to come.

    SHOUTOUT TO THIS CUTE LIL MUNCHKIN FOR BECOMING MY NEW FAVOURITE CHARACTER:

    First off, I'd like to give myself a nice, big pat on the back for actually making a wise decision for once in my life woohoo! (Okay, maybe calling it "wise" is stretching it a bit considering the sizable dent gaping at me from my wallet now…) But I'm not sure I could've stopped myself from imploding this time round if I'd chosen not to order volumes 4-6 together because THESE CLIFFHANGERS WOULD HAVE BEEN THE VERY DEATH OF ME.

    Also, a second self-pat on the back is in order because I. Have. Finally. Found it. My soundtrack to Saga.

    ALL PRAISE THE DONALD. No, not that pompous pumpkin, I mean

    precious human:

    It took me five whole books to get here, but may Saint Mama Sun bless your soul for releasing the perfect song at the perfect time.

    Now let me get to explaining these missing one-stars:

    But despite all this awesomeness packing a punch, where the first two volumes went

    on me, the ones that have followed feel more and more like a

    if you get what I mean. Right. Weird analogies. Probably not.

    What I'm saying is that when I picked up Volume 1, it more or less blew me away to smithereens like the 10, 20, ~500~ or so victims of Robot IV.

    wasn't something you could think to compare to any other comic book because it stood on its own,

    different level. Hell, it still does except for the unfortunate fact that I appear to have become desensitized to it.

    For me, the kooky, no-bullshit approach and the barrage of shock value played a huuuge appeal to this galaxy and its many eccentricities. Don't get me wrong, there's still a boatload of that scattered throughout even now —dragon wank, anyone?— but this feeling that it invoked in me before:

    ...has changed into something closer to this now:

    Which I suppose can't really be helped with anything that one gets too used to; Game of Thrones is testament to that. Ah well *shrugs* TIS STILL MY FAVOURITE COMIC SERIES OF ALL TIME AND YOU SHOULD TOTALLY GO READ IT IF YOU HAVEN'T YET.

    Now I'm gonna go pray for my sanity and hope the next one's ending isn't

    brutal– so long little luxuries of not having to wait for sequels, thou shalt be dearly missed.

    I love

    It never fails to surprise me as it introduces more wacky characters, each a little more bizarre than the last.

    Brian K. Vaughan is master storyteller. He is not afraid of killing characters off. He is not afraid of killing really well written characters off either. And that’s kind of important because it keeps the plot moving. This has a certain energy to it and its quite exhilarating. It never stops to get bogged down with redundancy.

    Brian K. Vaughan is master storyteller. He is not afraid of killing characters off. He is not afraid of killing really well written characters off either. And that’s kind of important because it keeps the plot moving. This has a certain energy to it and its quite exhilarating. It never stops to get bogged down with redundancy. I could think of several comic book writers who really could come and learn a thing or two from reading

    .

    And the illustrations by Fiona Staples are fabulous too, she conjures up on the page all the weirdness the writing deserves. From giant urinating dinosaur things to strange alien races, this really is fantastic stuff.

    I shall continue reading, to see where this all goes. It's quite random, I have no idea what will happen next (and I love it because of this.)
