Otto Silver's Profile

Location: South Korea Joined: Feb 10, 2020 About Me: I'm a noob to the comic book world. I read a hand full of graphic novels starting in 2017, but it was in 2019 that I, almost by accident, bought the first TPB of Saga. I read it start to finish, then bought the collected edition on Kindle, and then went out to find out what else I can read more

Finally, we get to the climax and we learn what really happened out on the little island. Or did we, because we still have an issue to go and we are back to the scene that started the whole series.

Like with the previous issues I feel satisfied that my time was not stolen from me and I am perfectly OK with waiting for the final issue to see what we have missed.
