Saga #7 Review – Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ triumphant return
Saga #7 Review Short Version: What else can be said about Saga that hasn’t been said before? It is easily one of my favorite comics right now, and I’m aware that is not exactly a controversial statement to make. The truth is, it really comes down to the whole crux of the series: The characters in Vaughan’s books may look weird, they may all be different, but they’re all people. Just sterling.
Saga #7 Writer: Brian K. Vaughan

Saga #7 Review
There’s been a little break in the production of Saga after the events of the last issue, but now – with the release of Saga #7 – I can say that it is every bit as good now as it was when it went on a short hiatus. Marko is a great character: proud, but flawed. At the end of issue 6, he was confronted with the sudden appearance of his parents, who are none-too-happy about his choice of wife. When his parents were alive, the war was a real thing, something that wasn’t fought by proxies far away from those they are meant to represent. Saga is impressive not just for its sharp storytelling and great pacing, but also for using those things to tackle tough subjects like generational discrimination. Also: This book contains what is probably one the single most bizarre splash pages I have ever seen my life. It is still in my mind, boggling it. I wish it would stop. At any rate, Saga #7 continues the book’s track record of being incredible. The first trade was released about a month ago, so now is your chance to grab that and the first issue. Seriously, this is one of the most interesting, challenging, smart, and bizarre comics on the market. You really should be reading it.
