    Black Nerd Problems - Carrie McClain Mar 7, 2016

    I hate when time jumps are used, especially in comics because I often feel that it's used to cover up for lazy writing and dismisses certain characters. But here? Brian K. Vaughan keeps nailing it and each new stage of Hazel from baby to toddler to child to who knows what what we'll see next keeps me as a reader interested, emotionally invested and present when I read. His writing coupled with Fiona Staples' art keeps reminding me of why Saga helped bring me back to the world of comics when I felt so bored with it. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Marvin Salguero Mar 2, 2016

    Saga continues to be one of the greatest series out today. It's getting harder and harder each review to reiterate how great this book really is. While the plot point that started this series was not truly unique, Vaughan and Staples have grown it into something that is. It's one of the most unique comic books current coming out and also probably one of the most unique in any medium. Read Full Review

    GWW - Sarah Payne-mills Mar 2, 2016

    Vaughan gives us a lot to think about and look forward to in the next arc. The pace has picked up again in this issue, as several plot points have been put into motion. It was a smart idea to highlight several different groups in this issue, as the narrowed focuses in past issues have been somewhat of a letdown. I'm hoping we'll get to see what Lying Cat and Gwendolyn have been up to next. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Mar 17, 2016

    There may not be any WTF shocker moment in Saga #34, but that doesnt make it a lesser issue. Its storytelling is still succinct and this issue actually is full of story beats that feel significant. Saga also has a habit of throwing in shocking moments, whether sex, violence or cultural, and those moments occasionally overwhelm the story. However, Saga #34 handles its social commentary with a large degree of subtlety, clearly making its points without superseding the overall story. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 26, 2016

    If youre honestly not reading Saga at this point, you are really missing out. This is consistently one of the best written, drawn, and colored books on the shelves. Its hard not to get invested in every character due to the work Vaughan and Staples do on a monthly basis. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 26, 2016

    Saga #34 was a step forward in some big ways. We know what to expect moving forward in this story arc, we probably know how it will end, but it is the journey that will hopefully stick with us most. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Feb 24, 2016

    Saga's latest arc continues at a simmer as Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples prep their narrative to boil, issue #34 offering the same great characterization and gorgeous visuals even as forward momentum crawls. The increased attention on Hazel makes for added developmental elements, in turn creating a more focused direction. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 27, 2016

    This issue was fine, and enjoyable in that usual Saga way. The characters are almost all pretty amazing, and watching them interact remains a nice pleasure. I especially enjoyed Hazel's adventures in this issue, as the young woman grows up before our very eyes. She's going to become someone truly special. Everyone else kind of ambles along. This was a good read and another fine chapter in this ongoing Saga, but there's almost too much going on right now, and almost too much left unsaid. This is the kind of issue that suggests we should all be reading Saga via trade paperback. Read Full Review
