In the fourth volume of the hugely popular Saga graphic novel series by Brian K. Vaughan, illustrated by Fiona Staples, fans can expect more of the same amazing and thrilling storytelling as the story continues to unfold in new and completely unpredictable ways.
The close-knit family – Alana, Marko and dear little Hazel – are enjoying some private time on a fringe planet called Gardenia, after being on the run from their respective governments for a long time. Alana is an actress in an underground entertainment outlet known as the Open Circuit, but there is a lot of stress and strain forcing her to take a drug to cope. Meanwhile Marko is raising Hazel and seeing very little of his wife, befriending another mother who begins hitting on him, and the overall stress is putting a strain on their relationship.
The secondary story focuses on the Robot Kingdom, where Prince Robot IV’s wife gives birth to his son. Then a plan is hatched by a disgruntled robot janitor, killing the woman and kidnapping the son. Then he travels to Gardenia to complete his nefarious plan, kidnapping Alana and Hazel. Prince Robot IV and Marko must then join forces to save their families.
The wild ride that is Saga continues in this addictive fourth volume which you won’t be able to put down. The art is great as always, filled with vibrant colors that bring these alien worlds and alien people to life. You won’t want it to end, but you also will want to find out what happens next.
