Rusty’s Comic Reading List 2016 | February 19, 2016

Saga5

It may seem that I am behind on my reading but that is mostly because I have broken my own habit as a book serial monogamist, and I am currently reading three books at once (a Neal Stephenson novel, a Milton Acorn collection, and an American Women in Spoken Word collection).

And now I had a splurge day down at Comet Comics.

(First, let me just say that the low Canadian dollar is problematic for book buyers. Ugh.)

When I stopped buying monthlies and started buying trades, there was a period where all I was buying was somewhat obscure books. This is because the more mainstream books had to get enough issues out to make collections of comics I didn’t already have. That has now happened so I am getting some books that I would have been getting the singles.

This starts with Saga. I love Saga. I have missed it.

Having said THAT, this book is a little disappointing. We have three separate groups, all with their own quests, and a whole lot of wheel spinning. The core of this book is the family, and Marko and Alanna didn’t even see each other until the very end of the book.

Overall, Saga is great, but volume 5 is not their high point.
