    Says alot when 9 issues in and a supporting character can carry a whole issue. Love the new dynamic, love the art, LOVE this book.

    Did anyone else dislike the way Staples drew the art? Aside from that and the heavy handed dialogue, which wasn't that bad just a bit wonky with the pacing, I thought it was a decent issue. I reviewed it at the link in my signature if anyone is interested.

    Great issue as always but why the hell would Sextillion bring the girl if they knew she wasn't a mooney?

    There's few things better than to watch a classic in the making; now I know how the people reading Watchmen or V for Vendetta back at the time of the release felt. Almost every other book feels irrelevant in comparison.
    That's right! Al Gore invented the internet, let's all go kick his ass!

    I got your inconvenient truth right here, motherf*&%!

    What's not to love about Saga, great characters, writing and dialogue, this book is simply amazing, and Lying Cat might actually be the star of this book...

    It was nice seeing the Stalk again, missed Hazel a little this issue...

    As usual, this book didn't disappoint. I love that I can not predict what is going to happen next. Gwendolyn looks to be a very solid character.

    This book has bar none the best dialogue in comics. BKV is just a master.

    Great issue. The Will and Gwendolyn make a very cute couple. But it seems kinda of an easy match. So I'm sure some wrench will get thrown into that. The Will can't ever be happy. I have a hunch that's a rule.

    Something I noticed about The Will this issue, did anyone else notice his cap has a cowl? Like... a super hero type mask cowl. I wonder if he'll ever put it on.

    It's always been there, which now means you'll have to re-read previous chapters and try and get a look

    Loved this issue. Very cool to have this wrap around to Gwendolyn. We've definitely been hearing about her and now for her to be on the trail of Marko and the gang along with The Will is fantastic. Can't wait for the Alana/Gwendolyn faceoff we know is coming and seeing the other half of the translation rings was very cool. Vaughn is truly creating a masterpiece here. Every detail is important, every character feels real (even though they are some of the most far-fetched designs I've seen).

    Another awesome part of this issue for me was the letters column. Hilarious to read the script that Vaughn gave Staples for the giant troll dude.

    Yeah, I only noticed the cowl this issue as well. Can't believe I've never noticed it.
