Book Review: Saga: Volume 3

Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ (illustrator) Saga Volume 3 (2014) is the third compilation of the Saga comic book. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so I’m going to base my review around the themes.

What Would You Do?

As I read these comics, I keep on thinking of what would I do if I were in the situation the characters in the story were going through. This volume of the series I felt was the most bloody and most compelling of the three. Vaughan confronts the characters with choosing who becomes family and what would you do for them. The interesting thing is that the time frame from when they select someone to become family to where they have to make a hard choice to their benefit, the timeframe between those two events is quite short. It’s as if they show the reader the what the characters are truly made of. And I think it works.

Final Thoughts

This story is great. But it isn’t for children. There are too many adult issues the characters really with in addition to the blood and violence in the story. So if you’re okay with this type of material, go ahead and read this story.
