    Black Nerd Problems - Mikkel Snyder May 30, 2018

    Saga #52 continues building a house of cards on top of dominoes that were laid out last issue. At any moment, you know something is going to give. Something is going to break beautifully and horrifically. It's an issue that showcases what Vaughan and Staples do best: lure you into a magical world and challenge every single one of your perceptions. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Bethany W Pope Jun 9, 2018

    This issue struck a good balance between character and plot, but although the writing was tight, it was impossible to disguise the fact that this issue was primarily intended as a bridge to the next part of the plot. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 1, 2018

    Saga #52 is another great issue of the legendary Image Comics series, and this issue takes the story in an emotionally attuned and interesting new direction. The characters are as unique and charming as ever, and the art once again impresses. This one earns another recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    The creative team of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples hit it out of the park again in SAGA #52. With surprising meetings, terrifying monsters, and a rousing game of chicken, this issue is clearly settings up some major threads. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze May 30, 2018

    Saga #52 at the end of the day was a build-up and a tease. Neither of which hurt the story, but it sure as hell plays with our emotions after a loss was already experienced, and there being two killers loose to surprise our band of misfits. I don't like to sound like I'm rushing a plot, but right now this arc has some hype to live up to. Hopefully the next issue gets the ball running with some wheels set into motion. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Jamie Lovett May 30, 2018

    It is impressive how much tension Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples are able to build even during an issue that is, for the most part, about a relaxing day at play. Read Full Review
