    This comic is so good it's starting to piss me off. Dear Mr. Vaughan, You should not be able to make me cry five times in the same fucking comic. Seriously. Twice in two pages? This will not do. It is neither seemly nor fair. Please knock that shit off. Fondly yours, patP.S. Please don't knock it off.

Of course things don't go so well when they first get there as Klara gets one of her ears ate off by some bugs. Joyful! But after they find their author, he's drunk at first, they all get a long and I was hoping good things could start happening for everyone. That never happens does it....Meanwhile, The Will, Gwen, the little girl and lying cat are trapped on a planet that if you eat the fruit you will have hallucinations that make you want to stay there. Yeah, that all sucked pretty bad. The Will almost dies during these hallucinations so Gwen hurries them off to find Marko to see if he can heal The Will as she has feelings for him. <---she's just not showing it. So all of these peeps show up at the author's pad and havoc is reeked! Oh and this guy/tv head. ↓He gets his clock ticked for a bit. You have a show down with Marko, Gwen and Alana. Crap goes all to hell and everyone runs off on different missions. I can't say any more. I can't wait to see what all kinds of cray cray is going to go on in the next one. I'm trying to read them slowly as I have the newest one on pre-order :-D Yay! The little picture at the end where it shows Hazel walking is precious!

    Of the 3 volumes of SAGA I've read so far, I think this one might be my favorite. Okay, that's largely because it featured a writer and I'm a bit partial to them...but I felt that action-wise, it was just especially well done. All of the cliff hangers and plot points that were introduced in volume 2 are now coming into fruition and it's so much fun! Can't wait to get to volume 4!

    Just your typical story about a couple from opposing species of an interstellar war falling in love and having a baby, then fleeing the governments and hired mercenaries of both sides in a wooden rocketship with their ghost babysitter...Three volumes in and so far each one has been 5 stars. I'm pretty sure that has never happened to me before.

This third installment will really pull on your heartstrings, so be prepared to feel all the feels. This graphic novel also deals with some pretty BIG themes: - Being able to love after a loss. - Following your dreams, no matter what.- How important, and memorable, it is to read to young children. - Society's views on the LGBT community, and how much it needs to change. - And most importantly, your worth is not dependent on the abuse you have suffered. You can heal and relearn your worth after sexual, physical, and/or mental abuse. This volume was fantastic and, hands down, my favorite so far! I love Marko and Alana so very much, yet, I love Hazel even more. Her voice is perfect, and I love seeing the journey/struggle of her childhood. Sophie is the other shining-light of this series, to me. I can't wait to follow both of these two young girls' journeys for three more volumes. Saga is very quickly becoming the best graphic novel series I've ever read. I'm now going to break down each chapter in this bind up. There will be SPOILERS, so please use caution in continuing if you have not read this graphic-novel, Vol. 1, or Vol. 2! CHAPTER THIRTEEN: Kiara, Marko's mom, is still with our main characters on their tree-ship! She's still mourning the death of her husband at the end of Vol. 2. The ship is on their way to visit Marko and Alana's favorite author, D. Oswald Heist, who lives in a lighthouse. The Will, Gwendolyn, Sophie, and Lying Cat are still searching for Marko and Alana, but the Will is starting to have his doubts, because he is seeing the Stalk. CHAPTER FOURTEEN: We are introduced to two reporters, Lipsher and Doff, who are trying to break the case on Alana's motives. They are poking their noses in anything that resembles a lead on a story, and even visit her step-mom, Even. The tree-ship lands and everyone meets D. Oswald Heist, who ends up being a pretty great guy. CHAPTER FIFTEEN: Countess Robot X, Alana's first commanding officer, is interviewed by Lipsher and Doff, and they start to realize this story about Alana might be much bigger than they originally even thought. Sophie stabs the Will, and it doesn't look like he has long to live. The food on the island they were on was making them all hallucinate, and Sophie's hallucination made her stab the Will. Marko and crew have officially bonded with Mr. Heist , and seeing their family fun warmed my heart to no end. CHAPTER SIXTEEN: The story these reporters are piecing together is getting scary, and someone calls to have them get "taken care of". The Will is the first choice, but since he is no longer accepting clients the job gets assigned to the Brand. Alana expresses her love for acting and theater and Marko is very supportive. Then, the Prince Robot IV confrontation we see with Mr. Heist in Vol. 2 comes into play. The Will is still dying, so Gwen decides that Marko is her only chance at saving him, so she rushes to the lighthouse. CHAPTER SEVENTEEN: The Brand meets with the reporters, while Prince Robot IV deals with his sexuality.Mr. Heist dies by the hands of Gwen, and completely broke my heart for Kiara. CHAPTER EIGHTEEN: Prince Robot IV is a little fried. Gwen confronts Marko and Alana like the crazy bitch that she is, but thankfully Alana and Marko's trust runs much deeper than Gwen expects. We find out the Brand is the Will's sister, and that he named Sophie after her, and I could barely see the last panels because of all my tears. I'm so excited for Vol. 4, because we find out that Marko, Alana, and Hazel have had a few months of calmer happiness, therefore, in the next installment Hazel will be much bigger, and walking!

    The wild ride continues with Saga #3 as Alana and Marko, on the run, look both for a safe place for their family and their literary hero, D. Oswald Heist. There’s plenty of character development and quirkiness (which one expects from this series). I’m continuing to enjoy!

    Three stars might seem a bit harsh for one of the best adult comics published today, but it reflects my disappointment with how little actual content there was in this third story arc. There simply isn't enough meat on the bare bones of the adventure to justify calling it space opera or even epic. It feels more like a resume, a synopsis of the actual events. I finished it all in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, and now I have to wait until the end of the year for the next story arc to be Three stars might seem a bit harsh for one of the best adult comics published today, but it reflects my disappointment with how little actual content there was in this third story arc. There simply isn't enough meat on the bare bones of the adventure to justify calling it space opera or even epic. It feels more like a resume, a synopsis of the actual events. I finished it all in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon, and now I have to wait until the end of the year for the next story arc to be completed (I refuse to read monthly installments for the same reason: too little material - just whetting my appetite for more and then leaving me hanging). At this rate the series will take longer than A Song of Ice and Fire to reach the finish line.I think it is fair to say I would not be so disappointed if I didn't actually like what I read. I believe the awards and the praise Saga is receiving are entirely deserved, especially for the artwork of Fiona Staple. The worldbuilding, what little we have seen of it so far, is also excellent. Vaughn manages to insert strong social commentary and anti-war messages in the conversations between characters.As for the third story arc itself: Romeo and Juliet, a.k.a. Marko and Alana, two deserters from opposing armies in the galactic war, are hiding with their newborn daughter in the house of a one-eyed writer (Futurama reference for geeks?). They are pursued by a robot-head Prince, by a bountyhunter with a telepathic cat, by a vengeful ex-girlfriend and, newly introduced here, a couple of scandal journalists. The build up is slow, but the resolution is well handled, closing this particular arc at a good point and promising interesting developments in the future.I saved one quote that I particularly enjoyed, as the writer is reading extremely horrible fairytales to the little girl: All good children's stories are the same: young creature breaks rules, has incredible adventure, then returns home with the knowledge that aforementioned rules are there for a reson.Of course, the actual message to the careful reader is: break the rules as often as you can because who the hell doesn't want to have an adventure.Recommended for very patient readers, willing to invest the time waiting for the next issues.

I'm here to tell you it cannot. Up against it, this series makes cyborgs as interesting as watching paint dry. Cyborgs -- watching paint dry -- even the ones with removable vaginas of the lighting up variety. Just the tip, Archer. You want to lose that thing or what?All Archer joking aside (and yes, that was totally for you Mara), Saga is a tremendous graphic novel series that continues to blow my hair back, my skirt up and my socks off. Don't even ask me where I left my vagina, but I'm sure it's gotta be around here somewhere. This third volume of the Saga saga (see what I did there?) continues to up the ante on the crazy and the thrills. What I love about this series the most is that even though every other page contains something I've never seen before anywhere else, it all feels so very sane, and beautiful and universal. This is a space opera dealing with an age old bitter protracted bloody war between two different races. But our heroes Marko and Alana, born to fight each other, raised to hate and want to kill the other, have fallen in love. They have given birth to a mixed race daughter -- Hazel -- our intrepid sometimes narrator, a living symbol of all that is innocent and good. Marko and Alana (and Hazel) act as our sympathetic entry point into this story and the wacked out landscapes and sundry denizens we encounter along the way. Their plight might not be relatable, but the love they share for each other and their family certainly is. The Will may be an assassin extraordinaire with plenty of blood on his hands, but he also has a conscience and a desire to be a good man, kept in line by his lie-detector cat creature (who is even more awesome than the exotic ocelot). I heart Lying Cat, okay? Okay. There's so much to love packed into this story -- the action, the heart, the energy and passion and tongue-in-cheek humor. Always with the humor. Whether it's captured in the text or in the artwork, dynamic sensational duo Vaughan and Staples find the humor existing everywhere in their tale, in the absurd, the poignant, the raunchy and the ironic. It's addictive and cathartic and all I want is more. Just MORE. Of all of it.

I'm not blaming the art in general, only during the actions, it always made me laugh cause it looked kinda awkward. Other than that everything is gorgeous, the world, the characters were well drawn and I love the ending to volume 3. The series is good don't get me wrong, I just wish it's better than this seeing the raving reviews on it. I hope the next book will change my opinion.

Vaughan’s FANTASTIC, AMAZING and UPLIFTING “Saga” series and man was this volume just as exciting and emotional as the previous two volumes (and that is saying something)! What is this story about? After the events of the second volume, Marko, his mother and Alana ended up on the planet Quietus in order to meet the romance author D. Oswald Heist, who was responsible for writing the romance novel that both Alana and Marko enjoyed, while inspiring them to become a couple. Unfortunately, the couple is still being pursued by the bounty hunter The Will who now has a new ally in Marko’s ex-fiancé Gwendolyn and the slave girl Sophie that The Will rescued in the previous volumes. Meanwhile, two news reporters are trying to find out more about Alana’s disappearance from her home planet while uncovering secrets about Alana’s past. What I loved about this story: Brian K. Vaughan’s writing: Seriously, how does this series just keep getting better and better? Brian K. Vaughan seriously has the magic touch when it comes to writing this series as the characters just continue to be more interesting as the story goes on and the stakes are raised even higher for both Alana and Marko as they try to escape from the wars of their planets, but their pursuers become even more deadlier than before. Even though this volume does focus on Marko and Alana’s relationship with each other, I loved the fact that this volume focuses even more on The Will’s growing relationship with Gwendolyn and towards Sophie, the little girl. It shows a more human side to the Will and it also shows that Gwendolyn is more than just Marko’s psychotic ex-fiancé! I also loved Alana and Marko’s relationship with D. Oswald Heist as it shows that D. Oswald Heist is quite a wise man who knows that the love shared between Alana and Marko is strong enough to get through any turmoil that is face by the war and I loved the fact that he was supportive of that love. I really loved the way that Brian K. Vaughan established the relationships between the characters as they felt so authentic and I actually felt so much emotion for these characters and the situations that they get involved in.Fiona Staples’ artwork: Fiona Staples’ artwork is as usual, beautifully done as the characters look realistic and the landscapes on the alien planets looked so gorgeous. I loved the way that Fiona Staples drew the scenes of The Will, Gwendolyn and Sophie going on a planet that is full of forests and fields as these scenes are drawn in a lavish way and I loved seeing the relaxed expressions on the characters’ faces whenever they are staying on that planet since it made those scenes much more effective to look at. What made me feel uncomfortable about this story: For those of you who do not like strong language, gory violence and graphic images of sexual situations, this volume does indeed contain some strong language, bloody violence and some images of sexual situations (although surprisingly, it is not as frequent as it was in the previous two volumes). Final Thoughts: Overall, “Saga: Volume Three” is definitely one volume you should pick up! It is full of drama, action, and romance that will satisfy many comic book fans for many years!Review is also on: Rabbit Ears Book Blog

The art is and remains fantastic. I love Fiona Staples, she is great and what she does, and I also love whoever decides whether the artists stays or goes, because if they changed her or mixed the styles, I would be angry.So, in this volume there were a lot of romances and domestic bliss. I liked it in the entire scheme of events, but as a volume, it was not the best in the series. Too many couples were trying to happen, including the two journalists, who I hate a lot, especially... the blue one, and Gwendolyn and the Will, who I hate even more, especially Gwendolyn. I am still waiting for the moment someone will kill her. She is a bitch, through and through. I felt bad for the author and consequentially, for Marko's mom. But I am glad Marko and Alana are back on track, though I can't not admit that the scene where she was "praying" in front of Marko's mother was just wrong.Now, to return to the journalists, I feel like they are two of the most useless characters in the series. I know where their stories tie up with those of the rest, but I still strongly dislike them because they are just bad people, not because they are written bad or anything of the sort. Same goes to team The Will. I hate everyone there. Even the little girl is totally not right in the head.Overall, an enjoyable volume, which luckily opens the door to the next, better one.

    Believe it or not, volume three of Saga is even better than the previous two volumes. It very much feels like a chapter is ending, and the story is moving forward. That's great to see. Long running titles tend towards stasis, and it looks like Vaughan is going to try and avoid that. It'll be interesting to see how the next volume unfolds and where the characters go from here.

    This whole book was worth it if only for this simple cartoon:Hadn't I been in love with this series already, I would have been sold now.I laughed so much in this one. Yes, there were sad moments. And less romance. But it was more humorous. And it takes no effort to get attached to the characters. Even the baddies. Also, there are new characters who look fabulous and promising. I'm curious and eager to know more about them in the following installments.The author's ideas still blow my mind.

And the sketches are fabulous, the expressions capture the essence of the character. This Saga is something to behold and enjoy.More pics:(view spoiler)[[image error][image error](hide spoiler)]*****My review of Saga, Volume 1 My review of Saga, Volume 2 My review of Saga, Volume 3 My review of Saga, Volume 4 My review of Saga, Volume 5 My review of Saga, Volume 6

    ne ara başladım da ne ara bitti anlayamadım. yemin ederim çok üzülüyorum saga kitapları her bittiğinde. sanırım serinin en iyi kitabı buydu. şimdilik. ya da o kadar özledim ki önüme siyah boş sayfa koyup içine 3-5 yıldız atsaydı da serinin en iyisi diyebilirdim, kestiremiyorum.

They find Alana’s author-guru and hole up with him on the planet Quietus with Gramma and the undead nanny. Meanwhile The Will and his expanding team of misfit bounty hunters are temporarily stranded on a seemingly idyllic planet while they await repairs to their ship. A team of tabloid reporters have gotten wind of the scandal that both sides of the war want to keep secret at all costs and Prince Robot Douchebag IV is still on the trail.This volume of _Saga_ starts off relatively slowly: both Alana & Marko and The Will and his team seem to settle into almost homey routines, getting to know each other better before things start going off the rails…and of course they do. Alana and Marko settle into domestic life with Heist and want to find a way to provide for Hazel that will let them stop living their lives on the run; The Will is starting to think that life after The Stalk may be livable after all, especially now that Slave Girl - er Sophie - and Gwendolyn are in his life. Of course neither group is destined for peace and quiet regardless of what they may want, and both of them will find that their pleasant little corners of paradise are easily disrupted by tensions both within and without their little enclaves.Vaughan does a good job in using the quiet moments to let us see more of the ‘real’ characters, not just the personae they wear when they’re ‘on the job’ and in the middle of the action. Sufficient twists and turns in the plot occur to keep us interested and Vaughan shows that while he may not quite have George R. R. Martin levels of sadism when it comes to putting his characters through the ringer, he’s still more than willing to drop them down a few mine shafts and see how they land. I like the pacing that Vaughan has established with this story: enough action and surprises to keep us interested, but enough lulls to allow for expansion on the characters and their relationships. Nothing feels predictable or safe and we still see reasons to root for almost all sides of the story (except for Prince Douchebag who, despite his ‘issues’ is still a douchebag…but at least he’s an interesting douchebag). These characters make mistakes they have to live with as much as they perform daring actions that save their lives. I also like that each member of the teams (or families really) that have formed have shown themselves to be useful. No one is simply a prop or superfluous, though of course that doesn’t mean that they might not end up being offed in the end…they’ll just be missed that much more.I don’t really see how anyone could be disappointed with this series up to this point unless you don’t like interesting characters, well done storytelling, and really rather nice art. If you’re one of those people I really don’t know how to help you.
