    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Jun 1, 2017

    Possibly, a serious miscalculation on language sticks out in an otherwise surprising and enjoyable issue showing our heroes in new light. No matter the circumstances, its still really good to have Saga back. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Jun 9, 2017

    Forty-three issues in and I get the sense Saga is just getting started. I know some have grown tired with the slow progression of some of the major story elements and feel the narrative should be further than it is currently. Why I think it works is because when major events do happen they always feel earned. Each character has been built to a point where you can have an issue like this one that touches on a number of social issues, some of which I have not mentioned, and does not feel overstuffed or too preachy. Saga is that gift that keeps on giving. Read Full Review

    Saga #43 makes for an excellent jumping on point for new readers. The opening recap structure allows for easy comprehension, where the back half of the read details the kind of well developed characterization the series is known for. Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples appear set to turn their narrative on its axis yet again, and at the sweet, sweet price of 25 cents, this issue is an easy sell for readers new and old. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kenia Santos Jun 4, 2017

    Saga's creative team turns its story on its axis another time and we watch attentively as if we watched someone attempt to solve a Rubik's cube. These are flawed, broken heroes, I warn you. But then again, it's probably their resemblance to everything fallible in our human selves what makes Saga such beautiful and captivating reading. Read Full Review
