    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 2, 2018

    All in all, Saga #49 is a return to form for a series that has went from amazing to merely great. It delivers everything readers have come to expect from Saga and brought back the sense of danger that drove the book for so long. Saga remains one of the top books Image puts out every month and, if this story arc is half as good as this issue, it will go down as one of the best stories in a book full of stellar ones.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Mar 1, 2018

    This issue was a solid ease back into this universe, and it was worth the wait till the end of this issue to understand exactly why this might be the start of the most shocking, most impactful chapters of Saga yet. Saga #49 found good ground for these characters to stand on, and quickly pulled the rug from under their feet. The road to freedom can be paved with good intentions, but in the case of one of these characters it will spell doom and consequences. Read Full Review
