“Alana Acts..”

What’s more to say, for those who enjoy this series enough? The cast expands, and shrinks. We get some cliffhangers, and interludes, in no predictable order. Saga is the comic series that keeps us guessing, and remains among the top monthly reads of out modern times.

Personal Thoughts (major spoilers):

Ah, what a great lead in..

Saga #28 begins with another wonderful conversation between Sophie and The Brand, who I felt we haven’t got to know nearly enough. This is until, a sudden interruption by Halvor; the sister to our deceased friend, The Stalk. An interesting exchanges happen, including the gift giving of a giant “eardrum’ from Halvor on request of vengeance for the death of his sister. Somehow this involves Sophie, who may have special (and contrived) powers of listening. Priorities are discussed with Gwendolyn, as saving The Will is the highest of them. Good I think, as The Will needs to come back for this Saga.

Meanwhile, a change of events for Alana, Hazel, Dengo; all prisoners of the “Revolution” now. Never trust a man who s snakelike in appearance to join your company, as such the situation will lead to no good. Yet, Alana wants none of this bullshit, as she takes awesome action with her fist. Dengo is surprisingly useless with his rationality. Then there is Hazel, as her sudden kidnapping may chalk up another point to her  galactic life experiences in this large universe of “Saga.”

Yet, I feel concern on this latest separation between parent and child. The look on both faces are troubling, and emotional.

Meanwhile, there are also no good breaks for Marko, Prince Robot IV, and company. The forces of the Robot monarchy have come for our troubled friends. A fuel leak in the ship also happens.  An earlier conversation with Yuma and Ghus seemed meaningless for the moment, as I had a feeling the time has come to lose another character. I had a feeling for several issues, that Yuma’s time would not last. I reserve sadness for her, with a sacrifice  as depressing as her life; thus ending this issue to stop on a poignant, yet humorous note.
