    SAGA #51 lulls us into a false sense of security or tries to anyway. Even though SAGA readers know that tragedy simply follows any happiness in this book, that doesn't make this twist any less painful. The plot is great, the art is incredible, and the character work is solid. SAGA hasn't dipped in quality yet, which is incredible for being over 50 issues. Read Full Review

    I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. This continues to be the comic I put at the top of my pull every week. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Apr 25, 2018

    This issue does what so many Saga chapters before it has accomplished, and yet feels fresh and original. The dynamic of this group is about to change in a big way with major climatic interactions on the horizon. Its ability to balance character moments with big story beats is unparalleled.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 30, 2018

    Saga #51 is another great installment of the Image Comics series, relying on its characters, unique world, and fantastic artwork to power forward while giving the reader a reason to come back for next issue. There is a reason this is among the most beloved Image comics on the market, and, as to be expected, it earns another recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    As usual, Fiona Staples' art is gorgeous, and this issue quietly sets up what will likely be a much more dramatic next issue. Read Full Review

    A solid issue that doesn't progress much of the current story, but is worth a read with the art alone. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth May 1, 2018

    All told, this is an average chapter of Saga, with a few interesting standouts. Saga is still one of the better books being published, but it feels like its in a rut and this issue is a great example of that. It moves the story forward, it builds characters, and there are some cool visuals, but it all feels so rote. For most books, this would be perfectly fine, but Saga isnt most books. It set the quality bar very early on and in recent arcs hasnt been reaching that same point. This story arc does have the potential to change all that, but time is running out for that to happen. Its no reason to drop the book, but its a rather average chapter of Saga. Its not bad, just a little disappointing. Read Full Review
