After a two week wait finally have Vol 5 to read! So naturally I flew through it.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"There's no graduating from this kind of education, couples just keep growing and changing until they either break up or die."

Final challenge for #24in48 is my favorite read from the weekend. I had high hopes for my stack, but ultimately most of my picks were so-so. HOWEVER, Saga Volume 5 (and 4) did not disappoint. I literally had a smile on my face the entire time I read it!

LitDrivenGirl I've read graphic novels for only a few years now and Saga continues to feel like a home. There are characters to love and characters to wish to be more like. There is art and writing that continues revolves in your mind for days after. Begging you to revisit the world and encouraging you to create your own. It was a really bright moment of my weekend to indulge in two more volumes of the series. I don't think I can wait to keep reading ❤. 3mo

On to my 2nd graphic novel of the #EclecticReadathon which is a reread because I read it so long ago I‘ve forgotten, like, everything 😅

EclecticReaders I have to do that too. Especially since the story is not simple. 😬 4mo

I've been so busy the past couple weeks, I've had hardly any Litsy time 😮
Today was dance exams (running them, not taking any myself). Now they're over successfully for another year, so that's one huge, stressful item off the to do list. Home now on this beautiful wintery spring day and rewarding myself with some hot chocolate and Saga.

"I've found that cultures often clash for the same reasons that people do. It's not because we're so different from each other...it's because we're all so goddamn alike."

Such an incredible story, I love all the characters so much, they're all so real and multifaceted, so many shades of grey. Need to get 7, 8 & 9 so I can get my heart ripped out (I've been warned about Vol 9's ending).
5 ????? out of 5 for both Vol 5 & 6.

Oh, oh, oh, I am so in love with this series! The artwork is totally To Die For. I'm crushing hard on Alana. And Marko. And The Will. If - and it's a Big If - my Hamilton obsession abates any time soon, I'm pretty sure this will rush in to fill the void.

Also, can't decide who I want to adopt more, Lying Cat or Friendy.

However, I am slightly mentally scarred for life by the dragon in the cave scene .... bleach my eyes, I must unsee it! 😱😱😱

GypsyKat Haha! This is my favorite graphic novel series! 9mo

This was great until they used the R word. I really am disappointed that it was even used in this series. It knocked it down from 5 to 3.5 stars for me.

What more can I say? If you‘ve read this far, you‘re as addicted as I am, so you don‘t need me squealing for 451 characters to convince you to read it. I do think I may have to start getting the individual issues once I catch up with the published volumes. I don‘t want to have to wait for multiple issues to be released and then bound for publication in a volume. Sooooo good.😍 This cover is everything, though!

TricksyTails I love that you‘re flying through these! 🤗♥️ 2y
DGRachel @TricksyTails I‘m holding myself to one per day, but that means I only have three more days. 😭😭 They are soooooooo good, though. Thank you, again. 😘😘😘😘 2y
TK421 Saga is such a great comic! I'm sure that @TricksyTails could suggest a few other great titles from Brian K Vaughan.😊 2y
TricksyTails You‘re so very welcome! 🤗 I am still holding off on reading 7 and 8. 🙃 I‘m trying to put it off as long as possible! Ooh nothing compares to Saga @TK421 ! But yesssssss if you want more BKV, happy to be a BKV pusher! 😂 2y

Friends, lemme come clean: this is my least favourite volume of SAGA (assuming I don't side eye Vol 8). As Hazel points out, everyone's a mess when they end up in a jam like this one. Some rereads, I love that setup to the point of incoherence. Some rereads, I only love the hell out of it.

This was one of the latter rereads.

Staples' line work feels sketchier here, too, possibly because she also helped relaunch ARCHIE around this time. #comics

xicanti (The "I loved it so much I'm incoherent about it" vs "I loved the hell out of it" vs "I loved it" divide is why I ain't on Goodreads. They wanted me to give everything I loved 5 stars. Nope. Not doing it. 5 stars is reserved for incoherence, while the other two are 4.5 and 4, respectively.) 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk I think of 5 stars as “I will hold this in my heart forever” but “loved to the point of incoherence” works nicely too. 2y
xicanti @TobeyTheScavengerMonk it's actually "loved to the point of incoherence and/or verbosity" for me, but I wasn't feeling verbose enough to toss in the extra words last night. 2y
UrsulaMonarch @xicanti 💚💚💚 I liked this volume because it hit so hard and GHUS!!!!! 2y

A couple years back, I dreamed I was supposed to meet Fiona Staples at a Calgary library event, and I was SO PSYCHED because I was gonna a) tell her how much I love her art and b) give her a 5-leaf clover or two.

But I chickened out. DAMMIT, dream self.

Ever since then, I've thought I should maybe send three 5-leaf clovers to the SAGA letters page; one each for Staples, Vaughan, and Fonographiks. Someday. #comics

There's this terrible, horrible THING that happens in comics discourse where readers talk about a series like it's solely the writer's creation and the artist is the hired help instead of a collaborator.

Don't do this, people. It sucks.

Because it sucks, Staples and Vaughan were like, "As of Vol 5, we're gonna put Fiona's name first for a while." And they did. Hurray! #24in48 #comics

UrsulaMonarch Cool! I'm used to graphic novels with one person doing both roles, so it's good for me to think about these issues. Thanks for highlighting this! 2y
emtobiasz Really interesting point. Because I'm not an artist, I'm often more impressed by the art than the writing in comics, but I hadn't considered the degree of creative control they may have over a book. 2y

"Ask a child's guardians what it takes to be good at their jobs, and most will answer with a single word... SACRIFICE. Parents give up so much: time, sleep, freedom, money, intimacy...pretty much everything but complaining about how much they sacrifice".

I love this quote too.
