Saga Vol 3 - Brian K.Vaughan, Fiona Staples

From the Hugo Award-winning duo of Brian K. Vaughan (The Private Eye, Y: The Last Man) and Fiona Staples (North 40, Red Sonja), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the universe. Searching for their literary hero, new parents Marko and Alana travel to a cosmic lighthouse on the planet Quietus, while the couple's multiple pursuers finally close in on their targets.

Collects issues 13-18.

My thoughts:
I am confused now, did I read vol 2? And now when I search in the library catalog I can not even find this one! *headdesk* But it did not feel like I missed anything. I remember that space ship, and they were still in it...oh well.

Two star crossed lovers being hunted across space. And they have a baby to protect.

I always say it, but I cannot review graphic novels...what should I say? They are short, they can be read fast. Yes stuff happens, but but.

Story: They meet an author. They try to live as normally as always. Good.

Illustration: Yes, that part I find the most important. I really like the illustrations. They are awesome. Really really well made.

Conclusion:
Good. But I really need to try to check at the library if I have read vol2 ;)

  1. I've only dabbled in graphic novels so far. Sometimes they work for me but other times they don't flow naturally and I struggle.

  6. I hate it when I can't remember if I read a book or I just forgot it. That's why I love Goodreads! Although sometimes I question it when it says I read it but I really have no clue.

  7. I always hate when I have memory lapses when reading sequels. At least the illustrations were awesome, right?

  12. I love this series! Along with the Lou series by Julien Neel and Ben Hatke's Zita the Spacegirl books this is one of my favorite graphic novel series.

    1. Lou is just so much fun, it is about a young teenage girl and her single author mum(she writes science fiction). Just a hilarious series in my opinion. Ben Hatke's three books about Zita is for everyone, really. So many wonderful creatures, great adventures and unforgettable friendships are forged in that series - it just makes you believe in the good in people.

    2. Ohh, I like the sound of that :D Especially since the mum writes sci.fi

      Delete
    3. The mum is a bit of a crazy mum, in a fun way. She definitely does not care about social conventions when it comes to being a lady ;)

  13. I sometimes forget too! It happens not just with books, but also TV series (I never know which season I'm on...) It's nice that you didn't feel like were missing anything - I hate feeling that kind of confusion. Great review, Linda :)

  14. It makes me twitchy when I am not sure if I missed something.

  15. I agree, graphic novels need to have good graphics.

  16. This is why I do all my graphic novel reviews as a group once a month. Then I don't have to say a lot about each one. Sometimes it's hard to come up with more than "loved it".

    1. Good idea! So that is why you do it! Now I know
