Saga #4 (Go a little deeper Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Jun 22, 2012 9:13 am

I continue to be very impressed with how well this book is balancing out-there space weirdness, with the very realistic marriage and family at the centre of it all. This book has two main plotlines, the first is Marko and Alana discussing just who exactly ‘Gwendolyn’ was, which was a story that could pretty much have taken place on Earth, with two normal people just living their lives, that’s not a slight, it means that it really rang true as recognisable human emotions and dialogue. Brian K Vaughan really is one of the best writers of dialogue in comics. This stuff really grounds the more sci-fi elements of the story, and stops it from spinning out of control like the works of Grant Morrison or Matt Fraction sometimes can. The sci-fi stuff here involved The Will visiting ‘Sextillion’ a brothel-planet, which was filled with all sorts of weird aliens fucking each other. But even then, it was balanced with good character stuff, The Will may be a bad guy, but he’s not going to have sex with a child. He’s becoming a very interesting villain, really cool. I’m really enjoying this book, you really get the sense that there’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored, and BKV and Fiona Staples are going to show us it all, but not without forgetting what matters, the characters.
