Saga Volume 7 (Graphic Novel) Review

Onto the seventh volume in this series I have come to love so much, after loving the first six I just hope that the seventh can keep up with the standard. Anyway, it is time for a review.


The Story

Finally reunited with her ever-expanding family, Hazel travels to a war-torn comet that Wreath and Landfall have been battling over for ages. New friendships are forged and others are lost forever in this action-packed volume about families, combat and the refugee experience.

After finding out that Alana is pregnant at the end of the sixth volume this book continues not long after that as they are trying to decide when they should tell Hazel that they are pregnant. It is during this phase that they have got land on a war packed comet to refuel their ship but in doing so they come across some unexpected guest and have to decide if they should befriend them.

Gwendalyn and Sophie are on another adventure as they try and help with the future of the comet that Alana, Marko and Hazel are currently on. Not only that but finally The Will is back and is hoping to get his partner, lying cat, back and hopefully get his life back on track.

The story like any other Saga volume is amazing, this time we focus mainly on two different parts of the story. I actually prefer this because it means we get to know more about the character such as how the relationship between Marko and Alana is going with another kid on the way, plus with how they are currently living with two people who despise them but they all need each other in order to survive. Plus we get to find out more about how the life of Gwendalyn and Sophie is going, this is great for me as behind Marko and Alana these are my favourite characters in the book and I want to know more about them and what they plan to do in the future

The art is still great and is probably the best part of the whole series, I love the art with its cartoony realistic look it just makes it enjoyable to both read the story and see it unfold in art form. The introduction of new characters in this art form is great as it means you don’t have to imagine what they look like as the designer has done that for you.

There isn’t a lot of sex in this volume which seems to be a first but I actually liked it as it meant more story and we get to hear more from Hazels point of view which is still a strange but brilliant part of the novel and I have come to find myself actually looking forward to her parts.
