If you’re a fan of Saga already, then this is probably as much up your street as the other volumes — funny, wise, gross, heartbreaking, and beautifully drawn. To my mind, it suffers somewhat because Marko and Alana aren’t together, and Marko’s storyline here seems to mostly be about moving him from A to B so he’s in the right place at the right time (and in the right frame of mind). I’m not a huge fan of the Will’s storyline, usually, but I do enjoy Sophie and the Brand’s interactions — even if the whole storyline about trying to cure the Will is a bit meh, given I couldn’t care less.

It’s not the strongest volume, I think, but I did enjoy Klara’s badassness, and as usual it’s gorgeous. And I’m very relieved that it doesn’t linger over the story too much, instead jumping ahead when the narrative is ready.

Rating: 4/5
