It was the end of a long day at work a couple of weeks ago and my partner had sent me a message saying that pick me up at the carpark. I rode the elevator down and crossed the street, looking forward to being out of the cold and into some comfy clothes. I walked through the carpark until I saw our car, opened the door, and lo and behold! A brand new copy of “Saga Volume 6” was waiting for me right in the passenger seat!
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you might have picked up my obsession with the “Saga” series. Written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Fiona Staples, the sixth installment dives right back into the action a couple of years after the last one ended.
I think maybe I enjoyed this one ever so slightly less than the first five, and I think that’s partially because some of my favourite characters didn’t make an appearance.
Anyway, there is still plenty of gratuitous sex, nudity, violence and drug use, the premise is still ludicrous and if you aren’t completely offended by it, it’s still a rip-roaring read.
