    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Oct 30, 2014

    "Saga" #24 is yet another perfect issue of this fantastic series. I know everyone hypes this book but it is totally justified in every sense. This is the best ongoing series coming out of any publisher. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 29, 2014

    What a way to cap off the latest arc, with plenty of answers to satiate curiosity, action, sex and humor to entertain and a new direction to look forward to. Once again this series reminds us this is the best comic on the stands. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Alex K Oct 30, 2014

    Instead of simply following the next step in the story, Vaughn and Staples slowed down to remind us the scale of the entire story. This issue acts to decompress what we've been reading for months and get us excited for what's to come next. You could easily describe it as "another issue of Saga" and know full well that you're getting one hell of a book. Read Full Review

    Though it says goodbye for now, Saga will remain with you until the next issue. Read Full Review

    Saga #24 changes the rhythm of the series and alters the landscape of the story, all while providing the same incredible standard of storytelling fans have come to expect. It's a reminder as to why this series is so well loved just in time for its next hiatus. The wait will be long, but Staples and Vaughan have proven time and again that the new issues are worth the long months away. It's a perfect time to enjoy the newest issue, and then start again from the beginning. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Oct 29, 2014

    Another agonizing wait to be salved by a new trade paperback release AND a hardcover collection of the first three volumes. This is such a wonderfully unique and strange world thats been created around these characters that its not JUST the plot that keeps interest, its seeing what on EARTH is going to be on the next page. From the first splash to the last and everything in between, I cant remember a book that more exemplifies the notion of being a page-turner. The final image of this issue also brings up SO many more questions that Im sure well get answers to...BUT NOT FOR AWHILE! This is a perfect opportunity to catch up with one of the most unique books in the medium of comics. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Oct 30, 2014

    Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staple are in complete and utter control of their story. They are masters of their craft. At the end of this chapter, there is no doubt of this. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Jarrod Jones Oct 30, 2014

    And though most of the events of issue #24 are used to set Vaughan's chess pieces in opposition to each other, there is still plenty to enjoy: Fiona Staples remains one of comics' greatest artistic voices, and her imagery is as slick and expertly realizedas anything the Big Two could ever hope to offer.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Oct 29, 2014

    Somehow, some way, Vaughn and Staples have done it again, crafting a read that's as surprising as it is completely investing. Issue #24 is as strong a finale as we've seen, hitting a number of notes sure to resonate over the book's long hiatus. With their characters scattered every which way and a host of alliances new and old now in play, the future of the series has never looked brighter. Now where's that emergency pint of Ben and Jerry's... Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Kelly Thompson Oct 31, 2014

    Though "Saga" #24 marks the next break for the book as it heads into its planned hiatus, it's a strategy that does not seemed to have hurt the enthusiasm people have for the series in the least, and more importantly it has ensured a flawless and consistent vision. "Saga" remains, more than two years in, a fascinating, innovative book that constantly surprises. It went from "great" to "important" long ago and shows no signs of stopping. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Ian Stephen Oct 30, 2014

    So much has happened in Saga since it began over two years ago. The real crazy part is when you think about it, it seems like we've only scratched the surface of Saga's rich potential. Every issue has been a pure joy to read that always leaves you wanting more. It feels good to be reading comics in a time where beautiful stories like Saga exist. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Nov 1, 2014

    Fiona Staples is an artistic Wolverine at this point. She's the best there is at what she does. Her art is beautifully rendered in bright colours that catch your eye. While I haven't enjoyed the past year's worth of Saga like its first, Staples work has never wavered in quality. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 30, 2014

    When all is said and done, and we're looking back at Saga in the big picture, this volume is going to be seen as one of transition. People in the future who read Saga in one sitting are going to breeze through this chapter to get to the really good stuff. And that makes this volume " and this issue in particular " kind of an odd duckling. Read Full Review
