Definitely an enjoyable installment, continuing the pattern of coalescing and fragmenting storylines. I thought this volume both jumped around more and resolved less than previous ones, but what a cliffhanger end! I especially like the attention to character and development that has been invested in this series, which pays off with the believable tensions in this volume as the plot turns toward family relations. Saga also uses full-page art panels very effectively, combining beautiful art and color for maximum visual impact. Brian K. Vaughan also has the ability to present incisive social commentary in a very subtle manner that toes the line between humorous and sarcastic. The best graphic novel series currently in publication for sure.
