Saga #17 Review

by @mikebiyad on Dec 18, 2013

Another great issue of Saga hits the shelves this week.

The Good

Saga 17 starts off right where Saga 16 left off, which had me waiting until now to continue reading. The good news is that the action and excitement I was hoping for in this issue is there, and it's awesome! Prince Robot IV has made it to the lighthouse where Marko and Alana are hiding out, while Gwendolyn is on her way to retrieve Marko in hopes that she can save The Will. The issue has a bunch of different twists and turns through out that I don't want to spoil for you, and jumps back and forth between the action.

Fiona Staples art is something I just can't get enough of. It's as beautiful as always and keeps my eyes directed at the page at all times.

The Not So Good

I do think Saga's biggest problem, in this book, as well as sometimes as a series as a whole, is that there is so much going on, however there isn't enough content throughout the book. I do think there could have been more dialogue, or maybe a bit more action to keep the readers attention, and make it a bit of a longer read.

The Bottom Line

Overall Saga has proven to be the best book on my list each month it comes out. I can't stress enough that this is a must read series, even though it's already at issue 17. If you haven't picked this up yet then I highly recommend picking up the trades and getting into this series, and for all you Saga readers out there, you'll be pleased to know that Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples have added another great addition to their series. Im giving Saga 17 a 4.5 out of 5.

4.5 / 5
