    Major Spoilers - Zach Woolf Nov 10, 2012

    If you are to ever come across a person that exclaims, "Comics are only for little kids!" proceed to immediately throw the collected first volume and this issue at them. Saga #7 continues on as a testament to the type of stories that are possible and even better in a paneled-paged format. Vaughan's words intertwine with Staples' art to deliver a narrative that is worthy of many awards. The introduction of Marko's parents has already proved to be an interesting addition to the story that will develop, especially with the ending cliffhanger, in the issues to come. Saga #7 is a must pick up next Wednesday and earns 5 out of 5 stars. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lan Pitts Nov 14, 2012

    Saga is a rare kind of book these days with rich, imaginative worlds and solid character development. The pacing hasn't let up and yet there is still so much left to explore in this universe. Here's hoping there isn't another delay in the near future. My sanity almost depends on it. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Nov 14, 2012

    SAGA is the best on-going series currently on the shelves. To me, it's one of those books that has yet to do anything wrong. Sure, I have these annoying minor complaints here and there, from issue to issue, but these problems don't affect or sway my final opinion of the overall book, even if it is a giant beast with giant, disgusting genitals that will always be in the back of my mind.This isn't just a must read issue. It's a must read book. Fiona Staples and Brian K Vaughan are my personal favorite creative team, and with good reason, they are consistently amazing every issue.Issue 7 of SAGA may not be a good place for new readers to jump in on, but I'd still say pick it up and find the back issues. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Seriously. Read Full Review

    Geekality - Julius Freeman Nov 15, 2012

    Not many books in the market today dares to comment on the social upheavals of the world, and put it so sternly on paper. This is why I hold Vaughn to such high standards because he's the only one daring enough to comment on those delicate issues. War is hell. That is a fact. Instead of making it all about us versus them, Vaughn decides to focus on the Romeo and Juliet aspect with Marko and Alana. It's a tragic love tale that will make Shakespeare smile with glee. It's because of books like this that fills my heart with hope because without books like this one, we'd have to read the same old stories from Marvel and DC. Support your indie books because right now we're living in the golden age of indies. Read Full Review

    Comics Are Not Dead - Comics Are Not Dead Nov 18, 2012

    Saga #7 got me hooked. I just opened my eyes to the series, and this is some of the best comics of the year, with Animal Man, Justice League Dark, Daredevil and (imo) Supercrooks. Read Full Review

    If you’re new to this series, I’d suggest you purchase the first TPB and if you’re not, welcome back to one of the best series comic books have to offer.

    Following The Nerd - Christopher Williams Nov 26, 2012

    Image comics has been one of the strongest publishers these last few years with their strong line of books, attracting a variety of creators to publish creator owned work. Saga is no exception. It is one of the smartest, best looking and exciting reads on the market. A very inexpensive trade of the first six issue was released a few weeks ago so if you haven't had the pleasure of reading this book yet do yourself a favor and get that and then jump on with this issue. You won't be disappointed. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Nov 14, 2012

    Saga is back, in top form, and there's absolutely no reason any reasonable comic book fan should be missing it. Plus, if you want to see one of the most horrific images in comics this year, you owe it to yourself to check out this issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 14, 2012

    "Saga" #7 combines the best elements of a family drama with bold adventure and twists it just enough to make it feel like something you've never read before. The plot might be simple, but the way Vaughan and Staples dress it up makes the tale so damn unpredictable, yet so perfectly -- perfect. If you're reading comics for entertainment and want some stunning surprises in that entertainment, then you really should at least give "Saga" a shot. Be warned though, there are things in this issue that will redefine your expectations of comics. Read Full Review

    Modern Age Comics - Alexander Moser Nov 15, 2012

    I think I was expecting more from this issue, but I didnt leave it disappointed either. Vaughan has built a very vast world, and the story is a little overwhelming. Its also slow-building, due to the giant cast. Sometimes Id rather see more of Alanas story rather than see Will watching old videotapes. Id love to saySagafeels too short, but maybe just after a long break, I want to read more and more. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Lonmonster Nov 16, 2012

    Saga is by far one of the most original and fantastic books in the comic realm. It's almost unfair to compare it to other work as it fits in its own niche. The art is reflective of the themes within the story and the dialogue adds another reason to why this story is so mesmerizing. I'm glad its finally back! Read Full Review

    ComicBuzz - Graeme Emmett Dec 23, 2012

    This has been possibly my favourite title of the year so far and it is great to see that Brian K. Vaughan and Staples have come back even stronger after their break and pick up exactly where it had left off and it looks like Saga will still be top of most peoples lists come the new year as well.

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Nov 19, 2012

    Saga is one of those books I would show someone in order to change their perspective on the genre. It's that good, and Brian K. Vaughan shows no signs of slowing down. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Andy Hunsaker Nov 19, 2012

    You shouldn't have that issue. Therefore, if you pick up Saga, you'll probably love it like everybody else does. I'm sure I'll get there eventually. I mean, it's about a goat-guy and a fairy-lady and a ghost babysitter flying a rocket-tree through space and evading TV-headed royal robots and spidery-lady mercenaries who make sex tapes with their merc lovers. And giants with crusty ballsacks. What's not to like, really? Read Full Review

    Fanboy Buzz - ChrisDeneen Dec 31, 2012

    However if youre thinking about picking the book up for the first time this may not be the best place to jump in. Try picking up the volume 1 trade paperback. It's a steal at only 9.99 and will quickly get you up to speed on one of the best creator owned books out today. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Nov 13, 2012

    Finally, it just wouldn't be Saga without leaving on a cliffhanger. Like any good monthly title, it makes sure you want to come back for more. That being said, there are plenty of plot hooks and revelations throughout the issue as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 15, 2012

    It’s a good issue and some of the character moments are great in fact, but the charm of the series has become the norm. It’s still a very good, but I’d hate for it to become stale as it goes on. If it eases back on the cliffhangers then moments leading into the off month will leave a far greater impact; after all how many times can you end a story arc with the in-laws popping in?
