Saga #6 Review – Comic Books
Saga #6 Review Short Version: I just don’t know how Saga can get much better than it has, and yet practically every issue is better than the last. Saga #6 is no different. All of the characters are taken in interesting new directions in what remains one of the most compelling comics on the market.
Saga #6 Writer: Brian K. Vaughan
Saga #6 Artist: Fiona Staples
Saga #6 has us Alana and Marko trying to make their escape off the planet, although Marko is forced to make a sacrifice to allow them to leave the planet that us unexpected consequences for the star-crossed lovers. Prince Robot IV will be dealing with some unexpected consequences of his own after the evens of Saga #6, although he is not quite in touch enough to realize the gravity of what he has done. Saga #6 moves the whole story forward in interesting directions for all of the characters as we move into the next chapter of the comic book. Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples really have something special, but Saga #6 resets where I thought the ceiling was. Not that I didn’t have great expectations for the series before now, but after seeing the new status quo (at least for the time being) I am even more excited to see how things play out from here. The characters’ paths have crossed and Saga #6 shows the different directions those meetings have taken them all. As always, Fiona Staples’ art is spot-in in Saga #6, capturing the alien world of Saga in a way that is both fantastic and yet believable. Saga #6 may not be the most exciting entry into the series or the most action-packed or the most shocking, but it restructures the story going forward in a couple of fundamental ways that I’m really excited to play out. Magnificent. Saga #6 is available from your local comic book shop right now or from Comixology for $2.99.
