    Word Of The Nerd - Kenia Santos Jan 7, 2017

    Saga has been described as Star Wars meets Game of Thrones meets Romeo and Juliet meets Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care meets Firefly –sounds at least intriguing, doesn't it? What's more, it has been established as practically unfilmable because of its R-rated content and how costly it would be to bring the universe into life, which means you're really gonna have to read it. If you haven't started Saga yet, go do it. We've had my colleague Siobhan Dempsey discuss the importance of reading challenges this week, why not set you a comics reading goal for 2017!

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Jan 5, 2017

    Our heroes solve one problem, but haven't solved the big problem of their planet heading into a Timesuck (which is all kinds of disturbing). I have no idea how they have kept the momentum feeling like it is always moving forward through 40+ issues, but Saga continues to feel like a comic you can't let fall off your pull list.

    Alana and Marko got their war on. Saga #41 was thrilling for a confrontation that was inevitable, but only a taste of what may come with issue #42 which will also come out this month. If we know our Saga creators, then we'll await the next issue patiently knowing that like the end of every story arc “The War For Phang” Part Five will leave us shattered. Read Full Review

    Again, Vaughan continues to move the story forward to the arc's conclusion. How will the characters escape Phang? Will Sir Robot sacrifice himself? Will Petrichor? Is the war between Landfall and Wreath actually ending due to Gwendolyn's help? What did she give to Landfall? With Vaughan's impressive storytelling, anything can happen. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Jan 18, 2017

    Saga #41 does a lot of little things well. Even though there is a big confrontation, I think some of the significance of the story is not obvious until you think about it in the context of the recent issues of the series. Vaughan and Staples mix the tense story beats and action moments into well-established characters arcs. That makes the action matter more than simply as plot twists or advancements. The two creators show that these characters, ones we have spent years following, are still changing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 5, 2017

    In regards to sweeping changes or shocking instances, this arc can't touch what's come before. But when it comes to seeing the characters we love fail and hurt and learn and grow, it's up there with the best. Read Full Review
