    (A-) 83% | Very Good Notes: Threats out of view, so elation ensues, but too good to be true: it's receiving bad news and the pain that cuts through.

    WHEW! What a way to end the “season” (to use Vaughn’s term for this as the season finale) on quite a gut punch. Which is completely on brand for SAGA but it still stings every single time. This is a really pleasant issue until it suddenly isn’t, but it hits an emotional release that has been boiling under the surface. I’m excited to read this whole arc again once it is bound as a complete volume, as so far it hasn’t headed in much of a direction but is certainly setting up a lot of pieces to pro WHEW!

I’m excited to read this whole arc again once it is bound as a complete volume, as so far it hasn’t headed in much of a direction but is certainly setting up a lot of pieces to propel it forward from here. Hazel and Brobot are certainly becoming a lot more center stage and there is a lot of potential to be had with them. I love this series and, oh damn, waiting until January until the next issue is going to be tough.

    The season-ending sixth issue of this volume of Saga, and what an ending it is! The issue opens with a sense of terror, but let me explain: The cover is one of those three pic photobooth strips, Mom and Hazel and adopted Lil Bot (Squire). They seem so happy! So what can go wrong? So Haze and Mom have a good day selling their wares in the public square, and they all get to go out for a family outing, games, temporary tattoos, pizza, candy, pop, all that.

Just great storytelling. We are told Jan. 2023 is the next issue we will see, as the actual Vaughn and Staples families take a little break as they have their own families to deal with; babies, that kind of thing, you know. The advantage of reading single issues (which I do through Hoopla, though I will definitely be buying the print volume) is that you get a letter each issue from Vaughn, there are reader letters/surveys, suggestions for reading other comics, all that. Ok, not that much happened in 32 pages, but what a volume it was, with that ending i part to set us up for next year. I know many of us are still bitter about the end of volume 9, but #10 is also good, life is change, hey!

    Geez Louise!! What an ending! I’d say these last issues have been addressing how dysfunctional and traumatic Hazel’s home life has been and how Alana’s ability to cope has been sorely strained, though she is trying valiantly to make a life for the little family, it gets sketchier and sketchier as time progresses. I think it’s touching, considering the story is told from Hazel’s perspective, the moments of grace she shares when looking back on Alana, sharing how much Alana loved and tried for the Geez Louise!!

Seeing the tough little nut that Hazel has become after her sweetness in previous issues has hurt my heart but I’ve come to love that kid, who feels pretty fleshed out by the end of this issue. Now the hard part with a much loved series…waiting patiently for the next. On a side note, I couldn’t help but notice that the idea of Hazel becoming this hardened tough shell was very Like the actual Hazelnut. Creative writing so well done that even that name fits the tough person she has to be in this new world she finds herself in? or coincidence? My moneys’ on the tight writing.

    3.5 stars. “Even as a little girl, I could sense that Mom had enough without also having to worry about my dumb problems. So I kept them to myself.” Alright, I gotta say that the ending got me good. Maybe because I can understand it very well. Really, I just think it was a very interesting, and realistic, way to introduce a plot thread that I had hoped we were gonna deal with earlier on after the return. There is also the fact that I can already imagine the immediate repercussions th 3.5 stars. “Even as a little girl, I could sense that Mom had enough without also having to worry about my dumb problems.

There is also the fact that I can already imagine the immediate repercussions that it'll have in the story. As for the rest of the issue, well, it was alright but somewhat of a letdown. What was introduced in the past issue became a lot less shocking by not panning out like it was teased, even if it seems like a long-game plan, and made it sort of pointless, for the moment anyway. Everything else was, as well, rather not what I was expecting, though I was prepared for that, and, for the moment, it seems very pointless and aimless. I did enjoy the issue but I wish we had more puzzle pieces to see the bigger picture. “I don’t feel most things most days. Other than, like, hungry or angry or sleepy.”

    Probably my least favorite of the series so far. Not much happens until the very end. There’s some foreshadowing so maybe it will make more sense in the next issue.

    Really liked Hazel’s narration but besides the opening interrogation scene and the very last two pages it didn’t feel like much happened. This definitely could’ve been condensed in some areas and expanded in others. But still some great saga goodness

    Less review, more rant I'm outraged that the creators are taking another hiatus, and not just because of the cliffhanger at the end. Based on the plan that they've outlined, it would take them nine years to end this series. That's a kind of investment that they really shouldn't ask of us or themselves; it sounds like it'll go The Winds of Winter way. It's going to slowly kill a series that has already claimed so much of our time and care.

Based on the plan that they've outlined, it would take them nine years to end this series. That's a kind of investment that they really shouldn't ask of us or themselves; it sounds like it'll go The Winds of Winter way. It's going to slowly kill a series that has already claimed so much of our time and care. Readership will dwindle, interests will wane, the characters and their struggles will lose their immediacy. It's a horrible thing to do to everyone involved. Many of us have already waited years for a resolution, but one volume of part two down, BKV still hasn't reintroduced many of the old characters. And now they want us to wait another six months? A lot of people are going to check out and the quality and budgets will sink, inevitably. Sorry, but Image needs to reconsider the leeway that it grants its creators. This issue increased the stakes. There's no B story. There are two random characters that I don't see any reason for being here. The splash pages are great as always. That's all I've got besides my rage. And of course I'll read the TPB when it releases because I'm a sucker par none.

    Our found family keeps on ticking… Happy times, joy and fun, before…. You guessed it…. Everything goes to sh*t. Wow, what a sucker-punch. I am ugly-crying here! And we‘ll have to wait till January 2023 for the next story arc, dang it. P.S.: next year I‘ll wait until all 6 issues have been released. The waiting between issues is not good for my health.

    That’s it! After 60 issues of this series, I’m out. I have no more love for the characters nor any interest in the plot. I struggle to get on with it since the new era started and now, I just have to admit I don’t enjoy it anymore.

    And now we wait again, January 2023 for the next installment of issues- though I guess really October for when volume 10 comes out. Yes, I'll be getting it. And luckily the local comic store *must* have known because they threw in a poster from issue 55 to tide me over. And gosh, don't Vaughan and Staples know how to leave it all on the page!?!

The opening scene with the sassy Klara and cutting to the indominable Hazel leading us all through the story of her family and now having to confront her "brother" Squire who confessed his love for her and having a little fun to blow off some steam before coming back to... (and cut to another cliffhanger of an ending!) And even on the page, not the silver screen or big screen can they pull off the mindf*ck of what Hazel is experiencing when she sees what she sees. But everything from the game Hazel and Squire play at the "arcade" to the goofy humor is always a feast for the eyes. LOVE IT.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. No rating since I’m not rating the individual issues, but this is definitely the strongest of Volume 10 so far. It was great to see Klara again, even for such a sad scene, and the tree ship’s destruction? Ouch :( I still wish that Vol. 10 had reconnected us with some of the other remaining characters (Petrichor especially, but also Ghüs, Upsher, and more of The Will, Gwen, and Sophie) as opposed to introducing new side characters who we’re pretty much told won’t last long.

    Gosh, does it have to be so dark and traumatic all the time? I mean, I still love the story to pieces but it's like they're determined to have every single bad thing in the universe happen to the main cast, and it's getting a bit tiresome if I'm being honest. That ending was absolutely unnecessary, they've had gone through enough and shit's hitting the fan all the time, I'm sure they could have found another way for Alana and her kids to get stranded without destroying everything in the process.

    Finally. This is the chapter where we finally get Hazel’s perspective on what’s happened over the past few years. Probably goes without saying that Fiona Staples’ art is next level.

    N.D.

    I love this series. But I would be lying if I didn't admit that this arc did not feel right without Marko. I know the story is supposed to be about Hazel. For me, it's as much about Alana and Marko as it is about Hazel's coming of age. I will say I love the relationship between Alana and her adopted son. She's really stepped up for him and his mental health in a way that she hasn't for Hazel because Hazel isn't as open about her pain. And that brings us to the final page of this issue when Hazel I love this series. But I would be lying if I didn't admit that this arc did not feel right without Marko.
