Spock's Brain reviewed Saga #43 Jun 6, 2017

If any series were to bring shit-avatars to the table, surely I should have guessed it would be this one. "Saga" resumes after a brief layoff and is, as always, really, really good. Fiona Staples has been doing this so long it's hard not to take her for granted. The issue ends with a bit of surprise, taking Alana in a direction I didn't see coming. Good stuff.
