    Following The Nerd - Julz Hendricks Oct 31, 2013

    Saga continues to be one of the best ongoing comics being made right now. With Staples and Vaughan at the helm, bringing the heat, it is easy to see why it is doing so well. I highly recommend it! Read Full Review

    The Rhodes Review - Stephen W Rhodes Oct 30, 2013

    The streak continues. 15 issues intoSaga and I've yet to give them anything less than perfect score.That's the bottom line. I don't believe I've ever given another comic a 100 score, but if I did, it was once or twice. This series stands out and apart from all other comic series. Sagais hilarious at times, touching at other times, and always awesome andbizarre.Sagareally is the best comic series out there and this issue is no different. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Chris Bennett Oct 29, 2013

    Saga is one of those books that anyone who reads instantly falls in love with, and I think it has something to do with how relatable it all seems, from how a family operates after a bereavement, so dealing with the loss of a loved one, to accidental hallucinogen ingestion. It all seems real. It's a story you want to be a part of and know what's coming next, that almost is like a drug as when it goes on hiatus I feel like something is missing every month. If you're not getting this book already then take it from me, it might be a drug, but it's one of the good ones. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Jordan North Oct 30, 2013

    Saga continues to impress. I'd tell you to buy this book but at this point it'd be a waste of digital ink. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Harper Nov 1, 2013

    It's always fun to review a comic that is so universally beloved because the question becomes how do you find new ways to say happy things about such a great book Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Oct 30, 2013

    Staples has done such extraordinary work with such uncanny consistency that it's starting to get hard to find a new way to praise her artwork. Her character designs are imaginative and functional, her settings are detailed and layered, and her storytelling is smooth as butter. I don't know how she does it so well month in and month out, but it's a probably a closely guarded secret between her and Daredevil artist Chris Samnee. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Oct 31, 2013

    As close to monthly perfection as graphically possible, Vaughan starts things right with an indignant Countess Robot X accusing her underlings of being "overgrown condom failures". While the central story is some downtime for the fleeing family, a second read of the issue reveals just how much is actually going on across the multiple storylines. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Nov 4, 2013

    Fifteen issues in, "Saga" has not stumbled once, delivering powerful comics with a shocking consistency. "Saga" is the definition of a well-considered, brilliant, beautiful comic that will stand the test of time. This is the bar to aim for. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ricardo Guajardo Oct 30, 2013

    For this issue, I hate spoiling things in reviews as that ruins the surprise and brings down the expectations as well. I will say that if the reader has been loving the series so far, there is more to enjoy here. Nothing negative to say or anything that makes me gives it a thumbs in the middle either, this book is top notch not by the action scenes (which there are very few) but by the characters & their interactions. Folks, if you been on the fence for this long, you are missing out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Nov 1, 2013

    Once again I will make my two regular praises for this series. I absolutely adore Hazel's narration. I think it allows a lot more insight into how this whole thing will end. Also Fiona Staples once again does an amazing job with the interior and covers. I look forward to seeing solicitations for this series because of the cover art. She has designed some beautiful characters here and there is genuine movement in her panels. I can't get enough of it. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Oct 30, 2013

    Saga #15 really plays with your emotions in a good way. Nothing is really as it seems, and your reaction won't be the same after the revelation of what actually goes on in the end. The very end of this issue being very shocking for Will considering that he can't have it both ways, and even then, he might have either choice. Great cliffhanger and one which may change things in a big way for Will's story, which in turn may have a big impact on everyone else. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Nov 5, 2013

    Still solid, this issue has all the dramatic and artistic strengths you've come to expect from your monthly dosage of Saga, even if it's relatively uneventful. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Oct 30, 2013

    SAGA continues to be one of the best on-going series in comic books. This issue really focuses more on everyone coming together as a family and trying to live their lives as normal as possible. It's a relatively large change in the dynamic of the series, since they've been mainly on the run, but it's still an incredibly good read. The side stories are really the best part of this particular issue though. The secondary characters are just as important and interesting as the primary, and that's what really sets this book apart from the others. If you're still not reading SAGA, then you need to start now. Overall, I highly recommend this issue and series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Oct 30, 2013

    There were so many funny moments in Saga #15, but the story maintains its heartfelt emotional tone. One of the interesting factors involved in Sagas mass appeal has to be the fact that even the bad guys are likeable. Although the overall plot has slowed down, it remains highly enjoyable to witness the wonderful character interactions and developments from both sides of the story. Read Full Review

    Any more praise I lavish on Saga would be superfluous and redundant. So I'll stop here. This is the end of my review. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Oct 31, 2013

    I applaud Brian K. Vaughan for demonstrating Alana's sexual aggression, as well as adding more exploration to Marko's culture and race. Fiona Staples once again gives the characters great expressions and brilliant layouts. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Oct 29, 2013

    All in all, this is about as much as I think can be said without spoiling anything or explaining the entire story. This issue, admittedly, might not be the best for new readers – who won't have a strong attachment to a cast that talk a lot in this issue – but it is definitely one that belongs in the wider series.4/5 Read Full Review

    Comics Refueled - vashmcdash Nov 4, 2013

    If you are looking for an escape from your everyday caped heroes and villain stories Saga is the book to pick up. Each issue is completely fresh and original though the story right now might be a little slower than usual its building up for something pretty explosive in the future. If your not reading this you are missing out. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Nov 3, 2013

    Saga #15 drags at points and isn't quite the exemplary issue that we've come to expect from Brian K. Vaughan. The shocking end to the issue puts the series in an exciting place come the next issue, though. There seems to be some big things in store. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 3, 2013

    Saga #15 is a kind of fill-in issue, but that's not a bad thing. Not every issue of Saga can be a mind-meltingly amazing experience. Sometimes Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples just have to take a step back and move the story along on an issue-by-issue basis. We've got plot, we've got sub-plot, we've got a few fun character moments, and most importantly, we've got another good issue of Saga. The story is moving along at a nice little pace, so there's no harm in Vaughn taking a break to enjoy his world for a moment. Read Full Review
