    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Aug 15, 2012

    How many months do I have to praise this book before everyone goes out and picks it up? Saga is a brilliant, epic comic filled with amazing, dynamic characters, and art that is breathtaking. This issue is fantastic and introduces a couple new characters who are very cool. I love this book and you will too. Read Full Review

    If I've said it before, I've said it a million times. If you are not reading Saga in all of its twisted, freaky, topless spider-lady goodness you are most certainly missing out. Okay, maybe the topless spider lady thing should be in the freaky category, but still. Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples are pulling no punches and they are truly pouring themselves and all of their talents into this story. There is an absolute endless amount of things that can, and I'm sure will, be done with this book and I find myself already counting down to the next issue and even the issue after that. The amount of books that I read on a monthly basis is" well, let's just say a lot. Saga is without question top three each and every month. So go, my lovely readers, and pick this book up. When the trade comes out, get that too. Soak it up and all of its twisted goodness. Read Full Review

    Modern Age Comics - Alexander Moser Sep 20, 2012

    If you were readingSaga, Id say its monumentally important to get the back-issues, or pick up the trade. Its a must-buy, because this book is so well crafted, from the idea of the universe, to the way it performs on page to page. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Jonathan Gomez-Dominguez Aug 17, 2012

    I wouldn't be surprised if I keep giving the rest of these issues tens because if this stays consistent, that may be the case. Saga issue number six gets a 10 out of 10. Now I am going to endure the longest wait for a comic ever. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Alex Aug 30, 2012

    Saga #6 wraps up the first arc of an extremely well done comic book series so far. We get everything from last minute suspense to a perfect ending in this landmark issue. With a name like Saga, hopefully this series will be sticking around for a long, long time. It would be a shame otherwise. If you arent reading this book, start. If you have been reading this book, it is your job to show your comic book reading friends the true joys of what is probably the best series on the market now. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Aug 18, 2012

    Quite deserving of nearly all the hype, this is absolutely one of the titles you should be reading if you consider any kind of serious comic book fan. Otherwise, feel free to collect all the variant covers to Avengers vs. X-Men. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Elijah Williams Aug 19, 2012

    The only complaint I had with this issue is a very minor story one. Sometimes we must make conceits to advance an otherwise great plot. The art is still great, and the tale manages to be personal and fantastical at the same time. If you are not reading this, then you are not reading comics. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Aug 19, 2012

    This series is not losing any of its momentum or quality. It seems to be getting better and better every issue. You should be reading this, and if you've been trade waiting, you're in luck, as the collected trade will be coming out in October while the series takes a short break for Staples to get back up to speed.

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Aug 19, 2012

    I can't advise picking up this issue cold - better to wait for the soon-to-be forthcoming collection - but this is an amazing, creative story that will mess with your mind in all the best ways. Profane, vulgar, creative and imaginative as can be, it's well worth tracking down. Read Full Review

    CHUD - Jeb Delia Aug 17, 2012

    Brian K. Vaughan has yet to let me down with any of his comics work, and his impeccable track record continues with Saga. I'm not sure that it's going to exceed Y: The Last Man or Ex Machina as his best work, but I'm not sure that it won't either. What's incredibly evident is how much fun he's having with this series, how much thought he's put into it already, and just how much he loves and knows his main characters. He has a journey in mind that he wants to take his characters on, and as he exclaims in his letter column (remember those?) he's exceptionally pleased that there's a growing audience wanting to join him on that journey.

    Outer Realm Comics - warriorfist Aug 28, 2012

    Another solid offering from a dedicated creative team, Saga #6 offers a pretty organic, if not seamless, transition out of the first arc. Unfortunately, we have to be content with that for the next two months, as the book resumes publication in November. It's going to be a long, restless wait, but it will definitely be worth it.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Aug 14, 2012

    As with previous issues, Saga #6 also leaves on a cliffhanger of sorts. Its not exactly dramatic, but it does leave you eagerly awaiting for the next issue. The pacing in this title feels right; it can take its time in areas, but it always gives you something in the mean time. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Aug 20, 2012

    If you like role playing games then this is right up your alley. Pathfinder is a potluck of fantasy, action, and adventure that would make any card player proud. This is coming from a guy who hates RPG's but don't let that sway your opinion. A lot of hard work went into this new title. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Vanessa Gabriel Aug 16, 2012

    Saga #6 hits all the right notes. There is plenty of action, a magic sword, a couple of moons, a lot of emotion, some well-timed humor and enough blunt-force cursing that lands the vibe of this issue somewhere between sci-fi phenomenon and a sitcom on HBO. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Michelle White Aug 16, 2012

    As you've probably already gathered, it's looking like this arc-ending issue couldn't have been done any better. Well, we all would have appreciated a little more The Will, but them's the breaks. Otherwise this is a fitting end to what has been an exhilarating rocket ship ride so far. The downside to this fact, though, is that we're likely to miss “Saga” that much more during the multi-month wait between issues. Stay strong, guys. This is one series that's worth our continued faith. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - MrComicBook Aug 14, 2012

    Series like Sagaare the bane of a comic reviewer's existence. It's hard to find new ways to say “this book is great” each and every month. Sagais a great book that should be read by each and every comic reader. Much like Y: the Last Man, this book has the makings of greatness. It might not live up to Y, but it's going to try it's hardest. Read Full Review

    Barron Network - R.Barron Aug 15, 2012

    The art in this issue was spot on and I really do not expect anything less from Fiona Staples at this point. I really feel like she is hidden jewel when it comes to artist within the industry. Fiona Staples panels are so good you want to frame them. I have to recommend this issue for 2 reasons, 1 is for closure within the first arc and 2 for the epic drawing styles of Fiona Staples.

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 16, 2012

    I wasn’t kidding when I said that this was going to be short. The book is good. The writing and the art is what we’ve all come to expect and the best part is that it ships on time. If you’re not reading Image Comics’ second highest selling comic book then really you should be. I like talking about this book, but really this is the last time it needs to be reviewed unless there is a major change in the title. I will say that I’m getting a little tired of the cliffhanger ending for each issue. Sure they’re mostly enjoyable, but the trick only works so many times before the effects become ineffective.
