5 Skull Review: ‘Saga’ #10

Saga continues its incredible pace and adds a tear jerking element to this week’s issue as this current story arc comes to a climatic head. Every issue of “Saga” has given the story extra levels of depth that showcase BKV’s incredible writing skills and imagination. This issue brings us back to Marko, Alana, and the gang as The Will and Gwendoyln close in on their position.

WRITTEN BY: Brian K. Vaughan
ART BY: Fiona Staples
PUBLISHER: Image Comics
PRICE: 2.99
RELEASE DATE: February 20th

This current story arc of “Saga” has been including flashbacks to start off each issue giving the reader a greater insight on Alana and Marko’s background, seeing the love bloom has been helpful in understand the nature of their unique relationship. This issue expands on the universe that BKV has created as the planetoid that Marko and his mother are on begins to hatch; this is a great twist to the story because it has a devastating effect later in the issue. As the book propels forward many of the events that have been occurring throughout come to fruition in a climactic event that will change the lives of some major characters in the book.

BKV, once again, showcases his incredible skill and imagination; the book flows so well from start to finish as Hazel’s narration links events to themes and creates more continuity throughout the book. This creative element is a magnificent one. Hazel has unique perspective on the situation and her omniscient view point gives her a more profound opinion on unfolding events. Many big things happen in this issue but there aren’t any particular elements that overshadow the issue which is incredible considering the magnitude of the shitstorm that takes place. BKV has very candid and vulgar dialogue, he’s not afraid to riddle conversations with F-bombs while also adding layers of intrigue and comedy.

As always, Fiona Staples weaves magic with her artistic abilities, the realism she entwines into story that, at its base is pure scifi\fantasy, is incredible. Many of Fiona’s illustrations carry dirty element which gives the book a darker and horrific look.

“Saga” is a premier comic book. BKV and Fiona Staples do a spectacular job bringing this beast to life.
