Book 11 - 2019

Book 11: Saga: Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples - 152 pages

Description from bookdepository.co.uk:
After a dramatic time jump, the three-time Eisner Award winner for Best Continuing Series continues to evolve, as Hazel begins the most exciting adventure of her life: kindergarten. Meanwhile, her starcrossed family learns hard lessons of their own.


Thoughts:
The latest volume of Saga sees Hazel with her grandmother in a prison camp on Landfall, while Alana and Marko try to find and rescue them. Alana and Marko are the kind of couple that seem to work best when they are up against the wall. The boring monotony of every day life - despite the appeal they claim it has given their love for the Heist book - seems to drain them, given what happened in the previous two volumes. Where they truly shine is when they are fighting the universe for each other and for Hazel. That is exemplified in this volume. Meanwhile, Hazel is learning about who she can trust, and she remains an adorable little kid, perfectly pure despite the strange obsession all and sundry have with her existence. A few side stories also run through this volume - Prince Robot is trying to raise his son to be a good person, away from the mess of the Robot Kingdom. The Will is still struggling with the death of Stalk and The Brand, and the two reporters from a few volumes back make a reappearance. Another great addition to the series!
