    Word Of The Nerd - Kenia Santos Feb 22, 2017

    In conclusion, Saga #42 is an ingenious and also terribly sad must-read I'm afraid, and it stays at the back of your mind, areason why the two-month hiatus is welcome right now. Read Full Review

    Vaughan's story doesn't disappoint, no matter how sad it is. He offers a compelling end to the arc. I'm interested to see what happens next with our characters. I hope to learn some more details in the War for Phang, and Gwendolyn's true role in it, to see how done the war truly is. Vaughan and Staples continue to craft a perfect comic that keeps readers craving more. Read Full Review

    Saga closes this traumatic arc in brutal fashion and gives us no indication of what is supposed to happen next. An incredible issue all the way around. Read Full Review

    This issue has a lot of graphic material within the pages but what else would we expect from Vaughan. This may turn some readers off that they would include such material. However, there are plenty that like this comic as it is grounded for a fantasy series making it Image's #2 series only behind The Walking Dead. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jan 26, 2017

    In starting slow and finishing strong, Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples end The War For Phang in heart wrenching fashion. Vaughan's measured approach to character pays off in ways yet seen, with Staples again providing the necessary human element to make us care. This is rare Saga hiatus that's almost welcome, as it's not just the creators who will need to recharge after this one. Read Full Review
