    411Mania - Jonathan Durden Dec 15, 2016

    Staples quickly became one of my top-five artists on comics and I think I could make the case for her to be #1 easily. The emotions of the characters, the full-page to double-page splashes are phenomenal and I always look forward to her artwork in each new issue. Staples is becoming a "staple" in modern comic art. Sorry. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Dec 1, 2016

    Saga keeps being great, even though this issue spun in place a little bit not too much forward action. Still, numerous showdowns are on the horizon and surely, the plot will shift when that occurs. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 1, 2016

    ‘The War For Phang' part four really challenges the question of what can go wrong in Saga #40. Things can get worse and they still are. If even for a moment this creative team allowed you to let your guard down, they surely made you pay for that as there still is no happy ending in sight. Read Full Review

    GWW - Sarah Payne-mills Dec 11, 2016

    This is a good issue that moves the story forward and shows some character development. The bizarre continues to be made relatable in Saga, making it one of the best comics around. Vaughan's smart, creative storytelling and Staples's striking artwork inside and out make it a must-read month to month. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Dec 1, 2016

    Much like its marooned cast, Saga has more or less remained rooted in the same spot since the War for Phang began. Rather than jump-start the narrative in any significant way, issue #40 serves to further maneuver the series' many moving parts ever closer, the building tension culminating in a frightening final sequence.

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Dec 7, 2016

    Saga #40 offers some good moments for both Marko and Robot IV. The return of Gwendolyn, Sophie and the Lying Cat is welcome. On the surface, there is not too much development of story threads. However, the negotiations between Landfall and Wreath suggest that some major changes in the universe of Saga could be coming. I dont think it would be as simple as a ceasefire. Still, Vaughan and Staples seem to realize that their series needs to always have significant changes. Although Saga #40 does not provide those moments, it seems to be setting them up for the near future. Read Full Review
