Saga, Vol 4

Saga Volume 4 - Fiona Staples, Brian K. Vaughan

Well, they finally had one I'm less then enthralled with. Not only did w have the cliched work breaking up the family, drugs changing a person, and a trusted person selling them out but we have babies torn from their families and in danger.

 

Not the way to win me over, book.

 

Don't get me wrong, there were parts I liked in this volume. Hazel is bigger, she actually plays a part beyond just existing and her Grandmother is still dealing with her losses. She can still give as good as she gets but we get to see a deeper side of her.

 

It was good to see how The Will was doing as well as how Gwen and Sophie are trying to help him. But there was very little good in this book. We learn more about the robot kingdom (the TV screen people) and people we've seen since close to the beginning don't make it. (I feel the author of this is beginning to attempt to rival George R. R. Marin for character killer.) One I didn't mind but there were some elements I was quite saddened about and others I'm very unsure of.

 

I don't know when the next volume will be out nor when the library will have it but I'll continue the series for now.

 

I just need to learn not to care about most of the characters apparently. And I'm worried about how this plot with the babies will turn out.
