    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Mar 7, 2015

    One of my favorite shows, which is dearly departed now, is Parks and Recreation. While it had a powerful weapon in its core cast, the show kept adding characters to its tool-belt, reusing them as needed until you knew and loved them as much as the main players. This collection of characters played a huge role in P&R's longevity; after a certain point, the show could generate plotlines and whole stories just by mixing and matching one character with another.

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Mar 9, 2015

    Fiona Staples illustrates a bright, colorful issue largely devoid of any big moments. She delivers little moments, clear expressions and beautifully crafted figures. Im noticing more and more how uninteresting her backgrounds are when compared to the people in them. Its barely noticeable, but when someone points it out you cant overlook it anymore.

    Comicosity - Kelly Richards Mar 6, 2015

    Issue after issue, Saga continues to be one of the most engaging and heartfelt stories to grace the shelves. Although clearly on a mission to break our hearts, I feel as though we are in safe hands with Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, and I look forward to seeing where this arc takes us.

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Mar 7, 2015

    I've long maintained what made the previous installments of Saga so enjoyable were the side characters than the actual heroes, but now those side characters moved decidedly to the center. Overall, it seems to represent maturation for Saga; it's a deliberate move passed the more personally focused issues of the past to broader concerns. Not to say the series was bad before, Saga remains strong, if not, stronger and more interesting. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 13, 2015

    With re-introductions out of the way last issue, Saga settles in to tell the next chapter, and I like the sound of that. There's a lot going on in the story these days, with at least three completely separate groups of main characters, each with their own separate storyline. I'm sure there will be an issue or two that focuses on just one at a time, but Saga #26 tackles them all, adding more depth and intrigue to each one in the process. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kalem Lalonde Mar 8, 2015

    Overall, Vaughan’s incredible character work mostly makes up for the sluggish plot in Saga #26. Saga has lost of bit of momentum, but it’s the still the fantastically unique book we adore. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Mar 5, 2015

    Saga continues to be one of the best titles on store shelves. Between the superb writing of Brian K. Vaughan and the wonderful art by Fiona Staples, fans are treated to one of the most original and imaginative stories in the past ten years. This is a team that truly loves what they are doing and it shows every issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Mar 4, 2015

    Though light on plot, Saga #26 still has enough bang for your buck in the character department, Staples and Vaughn fleshing out their characters even as they tear them down. Each story line appears swelled to burst at this point, so here's hoping something pops soon. Read Full Review

    "Saga" #26 is slower piece of an excellent series, and I can't wait to see this work pay off in future issues. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 4, 2015

    This issue does a good job thickening the plot and it's obvious Vaughn is building towards three distinct storylines that will come to a head eventually, but the issue on its own doesn't serve up enough shock and awe. Read Full Review
