What's not to love in an intergalactic romance, capable of approaching deep themes with humour and sharpness? This book manages to resume the events of the previous one and also introduce new characters. The story is great both because of its social critics and its entertainment value.

For those unaware of the events, Alana and Marko are two soldiers from opposite sides of a galactic conflict, who fall in love 12 hours after their first meeting and decide to flee, distancing themselves from the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet.

Saga – Volume one begins with the birth of Hazel, their first child, a symbol of hope in a world at war, for which (quickly but not easily) they get a babysitter. She's Izabel, a young ghost, whose body ends up in hanging intestines. Both gross and badass.

Saga – Volume Two introduces us to Marko's parents and, continuing to focus on the familiar heart of our occasional narrator, expands the narrative through worldbuilding and the development of secondary characters, whose sub-plots continue to stand out more and more.

Saga – Volume Three takes up previous events to unravel what happened after the encounter with D. Oswald Heist, Alana's literary hero. At the same time, we discover what is happening with other characters, such as The Will and his companions, Gwendolyn, Marko's very angry ex-fiancee, and the six-year-old ex-sex slave.

The characters remain indisputably human – in their thoughts, conflicts and desires, despite their aesthetic, ethnic, sexual and even gender-behaviour diversity. More than that, they are captivating, and that's only because of Vaughan's ability to explore their personalities and lives beyond first impressions.

And then, there's the distinction between heroes and villains. Each one of them is just people that, in a world at war, have been forced to choose sides. After all, the conflict between the planet Terravista and the satellite Coroa involves the entire galaxy, and even the most neutral ones ended up being affected.

The premise may be linear: a romantic couple of opposing factions who, despite not being interested in proving that love has no barriers, ends up becoming a symbol of hope. But the way the narrative is told, in unexpected twists, makes Saga an incredibly magical series. The issues addressed are contemporary, the message of tolerance runs through the entire narrative, and Vaughan insists on breaking taboos in the most shocking way possible. By the way, the sexual content remains, but volume two had already been censored by Apple's App Store for showing explicit homosexual sex. Despite the graphic tone, nudity and the depiction of sexual relationships and distinct sexual preferences is nothing new to fans.

The existence of a monarchic planet is another interesting detail, especially because Robot Prince IV (his thoughts and desires can be glimpsed in the screen he has in the place of what would be a normal human head). The sub-plot that involves his family inevitably influences the protagonists' lives. And there's also the first appearance of yet another freelancer, plus the existence of enough romance, drama and corrosive humour for readers to get emotionally involved, especially when Vaughan decides that, since there is a war, there must be more than just the wounded.

As for Staples' art, there is little that has yet to be said about her talent, which is why she won again, in 2015, the Eisner Prize for Best Designer and the Harvey Prize for Best Art and Best Cover. The colour palette, inspired by video games and anime, is predominantly warm and lively (lots of oranges, yellows, greens and hot pink). Creativity is reflected both in the details and in the elegance with which she creates more fantastic beings. ( )

Excellent story -- like the art, like the arc, like the characters. An imaginative universe, but what is up with the Robots? Man, they are weird. ( )

Tredje bind i serien om Marcos og Alanas forbudte kærlighed havde svært ved at fange mig. Der forsat fokus på en række parallelle historier, men der er også stadig noget kunstigt over konflikterne. Tegningerne er flotte men maskinelle, og jeg sad tilbage med en fornemmelse af en forfatter, der arbejder efter en tjekliste af ”voksne” temaer, som ikke rigtigt passer til seriens ramasjang.

Tre forskellige spor folder sig ud i dette bind. I den første kommer Alana, Marco, datteren og hans mor til forfatteren og kyklopen Heist, som Alana mener at kunne spejle sin egen historie i. Det viser sig snart, at det især er Marcos mor, der får en tæt forbindelse til den fordrukne men også interessante ungkarl på den fjerne planet. Imens diskuterer Marco og Alana kønsroller og taler om, hvordan de skal indrette deres fremtid sammen. Alana insisterer også på lidt oralsex, for det er jo en tegneserie for voksne…

I det andet spor er Viljen, slavepigen og Marcos ekskæreste havnet på en mystisk planet. Viljen ser syner af Stilken, mens pigen stille og roligt finder sammen med lyve-katten. De er gode for hinanden, og mens Viljen overveje at trække sig tilbage, drømmer Gwendolyn om hurtigst muligt at komme videre i sin jagt på Marco og hans nye familie, der stadig fylder hende med væmmelse.

Endelig er der en ny fortælling om en journalist og en fotograf, der har fået nys om Marco og Alana. De besøger hendes fars nye kone på hjemplaneten, men efterhånden som de kommer på sporet af, at der er tale om en kærlighedsaffære og ikke en kidnapning prøver de også at få en officiel kommentar. Det skulle de nok ikke have gjort, for de to regeringer er som omtalt i de tidligere bind desperat optaget af fastholde fortællingen om racernes nedarvede had.

De mystiske robot-mennesker i gammeldags tøj og med TV-ansigter dukker også op i et par sekvenser, og tingene eksploderer, da en af dem opsøger Heist, fordi han har mistanke om, at Marco og Alana er der.

Jeg opfattede bind 2 som en lille fremgang i forhold til bind 1, fordi de mange personer var ved at være introduceret, og der derfor var mere overskud til at fokusere på at udvikle historien. Den oplevelse havde jeg ikke denne gang, hvor det mere føltes som om Vaughan har en plan om at introducere samtlige af tidens temaer et efter et. Denne gang var det så kønsroller og homoseksualitet, og det er jo alvorligt nok, men det hele virker for skematisk og i stigende grad uinteressant. ( )

I remember reading this and just not vibing with it originally. Cut to a couple of years later, and a buddy convinces me to try it again, and I was HOOKED. Cut to several years later yet again, and re-reading the entire series in anticipation of the release of the very long overdue next issue in the series after hiatus, and damn this story still holds up. I don't know ( )
