    This comic is so good it's starting to piss me off.

    Dear Mr. Vaughan,

    You should not be able to make me cry five times in the same fucking comic. Seriously. Twice in two pages? This will not do. It is neither seemly nor fair.

    Please knock that shit off.

    Fondly yours,

    pat

    P.S. Please don't knock it off.

    Just your typical story about a couple from opposing species of an interstellar war falling in love and having a baby, then fleeing the governments and hired mercenaries of both sides in a wooden rocketship with their ghost babysitter...

    Three volumes in and so far each one has been 5 stars. I'm pretty sure that has never happened to me before.

    These books are like Prozac..I just want to eat them up by the dozen.

    I think this one is even better than Volume 2. (Yes, I still haven't gotten vol. 1 yet)

    Our heroes Marco and Alana have gone to find their literary hero so that they can ask him questions about the book that caused them to become a couple.

    Then--stuff happens

    I wants all these books!!

    Grandma Klara decides she's going too! They will not leave her behind.

    Of course things don't go so well when they first get there as Klara gets one of her ears ate off by some bugs. Joyful! But after they find their author, he's drunk at first, they all get a long and I was hoping good things could start happening for everyone.

    That never happens does it....

    Meanwhile, The Will, Gwen, the little girl and lying cat are trapped on a planet that if you eat the fruit you will have hallucinations that make you want to stay there. Yeah, that all sucked pretty bad.

    The Will almost dies during these hallucinations so Gwen hurries them off to find Marko to see if he can heal The Will as she has feelings for him. <---she's just not showing it.

    So all of these peeps show up at the author's pad and havoc is reeked! Oh and this guy/tv head. ↓

    He gets his clock ticked for a bit.

    You have a show down with Marko, Gwen and Alana. Crap goes all to hell and everyone runs off on different missions. I can't say any more.

    I can't wait to see what all kinds of cray cray is going to go on in the next one. I'm trying to read them slowly as I have the newest one on pre-order :-D Yay!

    The little picture at the end where it shows Hazel walking is precious!

    This series is going by so quickly. I want to reach the last volume, but I also don’t want this to be over (I’ll probably read it anyway).

    I’m just really attached to the wonderful characters in this comic book.

    The fast paced plot, the funny dialogue, and the incredible relationships all make it impossible to put down. It's a completely unputdownable story.

    And so much happened in that last chapter, I’m still trying to wrap my mind around

    And so much happened in that last chapter, I’m still trying to wrap my mind around it. I can’t believe Gwendolyn killed D. Oswald Heist, we just got to know him.

    I truly can’t get over how great this comic book is. I’m definitely not ready for it to end.

    Also, I loved watching Hazel slowly grow.

    Of the 3 volumes of SAGA I've read so far, I think this one might be my favorite. Okay, that's largely because it featured a writer and I'm a bit partial to them...but I felt that action-wise, it was just especially well done. All of the cliff hangers and plot points that were introduced in volume 2 are now coming into fruition and it's so much fun!

    Can't wait to get to volume 4! I've written reviews on volumes 1 + 2 as well if you're interested in more in-depth thoughts.

    another great volume in what is shaping up to be an outstanding series. there were even some sharks in it this time!

    briefly

    don't worry - i will be very careful here.

    what i liked most about this installment was how meta it was - there was so much time devoted to talking about books, the process of bringing books into the world, the joy of being confronted with stacks and stacks of new books, and there were some funny little jabs at authors:

    but even more so, this:

    it's true, authors are

    it's true, authors are

    !! i can't even count the number of times this has happened to me:

    i forget nothing, philip roth!!*

    and is this a confession?

    is brian k. vaughan afraid of fiona staples?? who could be afraid of this sweet smiling face?

    although maybe she's different when she's working….

    in any event, there's a lot of wisdom in this volume, about the subtext of children's stories

    and the quiet pleasures of family reading time

    although i did NOT like this. books are not seats!

    so it's only fair that she should be punished with the sight no mother wants to see involving her son

    "that's what you get for putting your butt on us," say the books!

    this rule does not apply to cats because no rule applies to cats.

    i am proud to be a brand-new saga superfan. keep 'em coming!

    * philip roth has never actually puked on me. but i'm sure he would.

    This graphic novel made me more emotional than any other graphic novel ever has. This third installment will really pull on your heartstrings, so be prepared to feel all the feels.

    This graphic novel also deals with some pretty BIG themes:

    - Being able to love after a loss.

    - Following your dreams, no matter what.

    - How important, and memorable, it is to read to young children.

    - Society's views on the LGBT community, and how much it needs to change.

    - And most importantly,

    - And most importantly,

    You can heal and relearn your worth after sexual, physical, and/or mental abuse.

    This volume was fantastic and, hands down, my favorite so far! I love Marko and Alana so very much, yet, I love Hazel even more. Her voice is perfect, and I love seeing the journey/struggle of her childhood. Sophie is the other shining-light of this series, to me. I can't wait to follow both of these two young girls' journeys for three more volumes.

    is very quickly becoming the best graphic novel series I've ever read.

    I'm now going to break down each chapter in this bind up. There will be

    , so please use caution in continuing if you have

    read this graphic-novel,

    , or

    !

    Kiara, Marko's mom, is still with our main characters on their tree-ship! She's still mourning the death of her husband at the end of

    . The ship is on their way to visit Marko and Alana's favorite author, D. Oswald Heist, who lives in a lighthouse.

    The Will, Gwendolyn, Sophie, and Lying Cat are still searching for Marko and Alana, but the Will is starting to have his doubts, because he is seeing the Stalk.

    We are introduced to two reporters, Lipsher and Doff, who are trying to break the case on Alana's motives. They are poking their noses in anything that resembles a lead on a story, and even visit her step-mom, Even.

    The tree-ship lands and everyone meets D. Oswald Heist, who ends up being a pretty great guy.

    Countess Robot X, Alana's first commanding officer, is interviewed by Lipsher and Doff, and they start to realize this story about Alana might be much bigger than they originally even thought.

    Sophie stabs the Will, and it doesn't look like he has long to live. The food on the island they were on was making them all hallucinate, and Sophie's hallucination made her stab the Will.

    Marko and crew have officially bonded with Mr. Heist , and seeing their family fun warmed my heart to no end.

    The story these reporters are piecing together is getting scary, and someone calls to have them get "taken care of". The Will is the first choice, but since he is no longer accepting clients the job gets assigned to the Brand.

    Alana expresses her love for acting and theater and Marko is very supportive. Then, the Prince Robot IV confrontation we see with Mr. Heist in

    comes into play.

    The Will is still dying, so Gwen decides that Marko is her only chance at saving him, so she rushes to the lighthouse.

    The Brand meets with the reporters, while Prince Robot IV deals with his sexuality.

    Mr. Heist dies by the hands of Gwen, and completely broke my heart for Kiara.

    Prince Robot IV is a little fried. Gwen confronts Marko and Alana like the crazy bitch that she is, but thankfully Alana and Marko's trust runs much deeper than Gwen expects.

    We find out the Brand is the Will's sister, and that he named Sophie after her, and I could barely see the last panels because of all my tears.

    I'm so excited for

    , because we find out that Marko, Alana, and Hazel have had a few months of calmer happiness, therefore, in the next installment Hazel will be much bigger, and walking!
