Review: SAGA #4 – Keeps getting better and better

The originality of Saga is what makes this book such a great series. When you read Saga #5 count how many times you are surprised by either the story or character designs. Brian K. Vaughan must have read Douglas Adam’s “Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy,” because it looks like Vaughan read it, threw it away and then created his own unique world of craziness.

The book is called Saga, and each issue continues to build on the epic-ness of the first issue and issue four is no different. We find out about Marko’s ex-girlfriend, and Vaughan further develops the loving couple. The ghostly Izabel provides comic relief and Will shows that he is a killer with a heart.

Saga is unique but if you strip down all the special effects from the book, it’s a normal couple in an insane world. Somehow everyone can relate to it in some form or another. I can not think of a time before Star Wars, but Saga boldly takes the science fiction/fantasy genre in a new direction. Vaughan is building up this universe of characters, but it’s only a matter of time before the gut-wrenching emotional lose of life begins.

Brian K. Vaughan delivers on his promise to give the readers an epic tale.
