    Vaughan's Hazel narration of issue 29 is such a tease too, teasing sacrifice for several panels while flashing back and forth to several life or death moments between all of our main cast. The effect was so racked with tension that I couldn't handle it. By the time we see what he means by ‘sacrifice' we're left reeling once again. Saga is the best comic book on the shelves today and one that should be read issue to issue because every single chapter is solid gold. Read Full Review

    Saga sweeps the leg in issue #29, Vaughan and Staples shaking up their various storylines in increasingly damaging ways. Vaughan's finely tuned characterization ensures no secondary character falls by the wayside, just as Staples' emotive visuals give them the attention they deserve. Saga is at its best when things are at their worst, and things are mighty bad indeed. Read Full Review

    Twenty-nine issues is a lot for a single creative team on one title, and it wouldnt be surprising if things stagnated a little in this situation. And yet, Vaughan and Staples are surpassing those expectations by delivering a great issue. While some of the preceding issues that have been setting up these storylines havent been classics (though Saga #27 was pretty close), this issue really hits all the marks. As it is about to move into its thirties, Saga still have youthful energy. Overall, due to its rich storytelling, surprises, and vibrant art, Saga #29 is an outstanding comic book. Read Full Review

    Saga #29 is another strong effort from the powerhouse team of Vaughn and Staples. As this latest arc barrels towards its conclusion, no one appears to be safe – especially the reader and their emotions. This is a book that should not be missed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Jun 11, 2015

    Saga #29 is a disappointment. It finally wraps up one storyline that wasn't that interesting while ending another in a very unsatisfying and poor manner. Combined with writing and characterization that isn't up to speed, this is easily one of the weakest issues of the series to date. Unless the last issue somehow redeems everything, I can't help but foresee this being one story arc everyone is going to speed through when they reread the series in the future. Read Full Review
