From the worldwide bestselling team of Fiona Staples and Brian K. Vaughan, “The War for Phang” is an epic, self-contained Saga event! Finally reunited with her ever-expanding family, Hazel travels to a war-torn comet that Wreath and Landfall have been battling over for ages. New friendships are forged and others are lost forever in this action-packed volume about families, combat and the refugee experience.
Get ready to say goodbye to some beloved characters.
And be introduced to others. There’s always a risk for authors who introduce new characters in their stories and kill old ones: the reader might not like them, connect to them or find them as interesting as the dead ones.
But it’s not because there’s a risk that the author should never do it. In fact, Brian K. Vaughan introduces new characters in every new volume of Saga. And impressively enough, I don’t believe there is one I wished he never created.
So this author doesn’t play it safe and that’s admirable, because so far I’ve been in awe of his writing and character developments. I still remember how much I hated Robot at first… and then he changed… and changed again. I would be curious to see the end of his story. Will it be a happy one?
Once again, there is a time jump. Only six months this time, but it still affects the storyline a lot. I hope these time jumps will not be as frequent, going forward, because I understand the world-building better when we as readers know as much as the characters do.
Some very endearing scenes. The rest is action, blood and danger. Eager to read the eight volume when it’s out.
