Saga, vol 4, by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

This missed getting on the Hugo shortlist this year by a single vote, or rather because the Puppies nominated a completely crap webcomic about zombies and 26 people nominated Saga without specifying which volume they were voting for. Having said that, volume 3 (which I enjoyed) did make it to the list and duly came second to Ms Marvel. This volume takes the relationship between the protagonists in a new and not very happy direction, while at the same time showing us the weird dynastic dynamics among their enemies and setting up for further developments.

Among the list of potential Best Graphic Novel nominees on the Hugo recommendations spreadsheet, the next volume, vol 5, is third in both Goodreads and LibraryThing ownership, behind only Ms Marvel vol 2 and The Sculptor. I’ll get hold of it soon.

One thought on “Saga, vol 4, by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

  1. There were rumours at the time that Miracle Day was originally planned to be five episodes but that Starz demanded that it be extended to suit US formats. The second episode is one of the things that make me believe them.
