Another delightfully idiosyncratic issue of Saga, this book is just so different from what you might expect from an epic sci-fi, and that’s what makes it work, the fact that it brings these crazy characters like a Robot Prince with a TV head and shows them as everyday people, doing everyday things like shitting. I must admit at being a little weirded out by BKV’s idea of ‘robots’. They can shit, they can fuck, they can get pregnant, what makes them robots? They seem pretty much human except for their TV heads. This issue shed more light on who Marko is as a person, by showing him succumb to violence against his better nature. I really liked how grateful he was to Alana for stopping him. In amongst the space madness, this is a very strong depiction of a marriage and relationship (not that I know that much about marriage, I’m basing everything I know on Mr and Mrs Coach from Friday Night Lights). The Will once again kicked ass a whole lot, and it’s great to see the ‘villains’ of this title given real depth. It’s the same for Prince Robot, we know about his family life now, so even when he’s being a dick and killing The Stalk, no questions asked, we still empathise with him a little. This is becoming a really rich world full of great characters, which is almost unheard of after only 5 issues.

I'm counting on The Will to get the kid out of Sextillion.

Lying Cat is awesome.

I don't think Stalk is dead. Well...at least I hope not. :-(
