3.0 out of 5 stars This time I bought this for my hubby!
He only rated this a 3 star. Apparently a bit of slow and it just never seemed to really fulfil it's brief.

This review is from: Saga Volume 3 (Paperback)
‘Saga, Vol. 3’ written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Fiona Staples is the third part of the excellent comic series that has for its theme the love of two soldiers from different sides of galactic war - a comic book that grabs attentions with its theme, but primarily with its somewhat old-school comic artwork with elements of futuristic world, both being the reasons why it won Hugo award for Best Graphic Story back in 2013.

For those series regulars it is important to say that the book with every release becomes better, which makes it a treat in the world of comics, where it certainly competes among the best titles currently on the market.

The last installment ended with decision of Prince Robot to wait for Marko, Alana and their child to come at the Oswart Heist's home on the planet Quietus, unfamiliar with the fact that they already for some time are hiding there. For that reason most part of this third installment is devoted to their journey to D. Oswart Heist's home, while author partially goes back in time to give reader more information about what happened. On the other hand we are able to learn what is happening on some other secret planet with Slave Girl, The Will, Lying Cat and Gwendolyn.

The author has made a good decision to go back a little with his story because in that way except giving better background, he also opened the possibility for a more detailed characterization of the main characters together with introducing some new, while in same time a description of the world in which the action takes place is becoming more and more detailed and appealing.

Vaughan with this extension continues the excellent comic book series which would be a shame to start reading from this installment, and even if you do not like the story by chance, you will definitely be delighted with Staples drawings that are of truly exceptional quality.

Therefore, all recommendations to this title and cannot wait to be continued.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential but oh that painful wait between volumes (which is worth it though!), 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saga Volume 3 (Paperback)
It's almost painful how great Saga is, but how slowly (but surely) it builds up into an essential comic collection over time. That's really the only drawback with this fantastic series. Saga Volume 3 builds on the previous story by introducing even more weird and whacky characters. In places it really reminds me of Lexx and other "out there" sci fi which is definitely no bad thing. Funny, sexy, menacing and just utterly brilliant. Becoming a Saga addict will drive you nuts though, it's just that long long wait till the next volume (roll on Volume 4!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative, thoughtful, beautiful and consistent., 14 Oct 2014
This review is from: Saga Volume 3 (Paperback)
Graphically and story wise this is one of the best graphic novels I have read. My partner just started reading them and she's completely hooked as well. It's a relief to have a story in a graphic novel that is narrated from a female perspective (and drawn from one).

As the universe grows, so does the immersion for the reader.

If you have read volumes 1 & 2 of Saga then you will already know how awesome it is, the 3rd book does not disappoint either!

Vaughn and Staples have turned out to be a dream-team! If you're reading about Volume 3, then you probably already know all you need to know about this series - so just expect more of the same brilliant work in V3 that you got in the previous two volumes.
