Going too far is not something Brian K. Vaughan believes in. He has, and I assume will always, push the boundaries of genre and storytelling, particularly in this ninth volume of Saga. There's still the same mix of fantasy, sci-fi, and realism; the same gorgeous illustrating by Staples; the same rich world full of the crazy, interesting characters that I love; and the same storylines that are firmly planted in their world, yet hit on real issues we face today. But everything is elevated a couple notches. Though the ending wrecked me, it's a reminder that life is beautiful, yet often terrible, but love always wins. Recommended By Michelle L. , Powells.com
