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.
This trade paperback of SAGA collects volumes 37-42 and is a heart wrenching and exciting journey.
Saga is easily one of my top favorite series and this collection brought me to my knees. Once again nailing social and family issues that pull you along with beautifully stunning artwork.
With the family reunited and faced with more challenges, I guess it was a great time to rip out our hearts and stomp on it for good measure. Not very often do I get emotional about fictional characters, but when the writer and artist have you relating to almost every character, it is impossible to avoid connecting with them. Only this amount of connection allowed them to yank my heart out and carry it around like a broken toy for a few days.
This high conflict and character driven story continues to amaze me. The amount of real world problems that face Alana and Marko on every page is beautifully woven into a fantasy universe, creating a remarkable combination.
This is an amazing story and I cannot wait for more.
