Mini Reviews: Saga #61

Saga #61

Sometimes, the staff at Graphic Policy read more comics than we’re able to get reviewed. When that happens you’ll see a weekly feature compiling reviews of the comics, or graphic novels, we just didn’t get a chance to write a full one for.

These are Graphic Policy’s Mini Reviews and Recommendations.


Saga #61 (Image Comics) – The beginning of this new arc of Saga focuses on Hazel, Squire, and Alana struggling as unhoused folks on a planet that has become a warzone plus some behind the scenes machinations from The Will, Gwendolyn, and a very badass Petrichor. Fiona Staples‘ visuals do a wonderful job of showing the passing of time with Hazel and Squire’s new outfits revealing how quickly they’ve had to grow up and how angry they’ve become. And speaking of innocence, her flashback to Marko and Gwendolyn with a lot less lines on their faces and lot more jingoism in Brian K. Vaughan‘s dialogue drives home how much he’s missed by readers and characters in-universe. Vaughan and Staples have definitely set him as a common thread in Saga #61 while also focusing on the still-raging and pointless war between Wreath and Landfall. There is true horror in the scenes of carnage on the planet like when a regular grocery store parking lot becomes a sniper’s den. Saga continues to be compelling and feature creative character designs from Fiona Staples and heart-rending narration from Brian K. Vaughan, and issue 61 in particular takes a big swing that we’ll see if it works or not in subsequent comics. Overall: 9.0 Verdict: Buy

Well, there you have it, folks. The reviews we didn’t quite get a chance to write. See you next week!

Please note that with some of the above comics, Graphic Policy was provided FREE copies for review. Where we purchased the comics, you’ll see an asterisk (*). If you don’t see that, you can infer the comic was a review copy. In cases where we were provided a review copy and we also purchased the comic you’ll see two asterisks (**).
