Multiple storylines collide in this cosmos-spanning new volume. While Gwendolyn and Lying Cat risk everything to find a cure for The Will, Marko makes an uneasy alliance with Prince Robot IV to find their missing children, who are trapped on a strange world with terrifying new enemies.

Saga is the only graphic novel I’d recommend to anyone except for young readers. I enjoyed this volume a little more than volume four but first three volumes were awesome. I don’t usually read graphic novels but I love these. I never understood why people hated the artwork in Vampire Academy so much until I saw the stunning artwork in this series.

This volume starts after three months have passed since Hazel saw her father. Marko and Prince Robot are working together to find their children and it isn’t all roses and butterflies. They’re enemies so of course they don’t get along well.

Dragons! All the scenes with them were… I think weird is the right word but still dragons! I always forget that The Brand is The Will’s sister instead of brother… oops?


And I’m sad that she died.

I don’t like how they keep bringing drugs into the story but I guess this time they were useful. Still I yelled come on in one point.
