The typical high quality story and art continue, this time touching on interesting areas such as abortion and sexual preference and gender fluidity.

If I have one complaint, without spoilers, it's that, despite what is set up in the first couple of pages in regard to where the story will go, and later getting a sense of the sinister, we are kept out of the room as it takes place. And don't get me wrong, I'm not looking for the gross or the gore, but I was hoping for the emotion, and I didn't get it.

It seems like one of the rare times when Vaughn and Staples chose to look away. ( )

Deze wonderbaarlijke graphic novel serie waarin ras, macht, oorlog, vooroordelen, seksualiteit, gender en geweld mij telkens weer opnieuw laten verwonderen over het brein van de makers van deze doorlopende iconische geschiedenis, heeft met dit deel nog steeds niets aan kracht ingeboet.

Ik heb me afgevraagd wat het nu precies is wat deze serie zo speciaal maakt. In de eerste plaats zijn het de heldere kleuren die steeds weer opvallen en het zijn heel eigen sfeer geeft.
Daarnaast is er het epische van vele werelden die betrokken worden bij de geschiedenis van het verboden liefdespaar. Maar dat is wel vaker vertoond. Het zijn wat mij betreft de briljante fantasiewezens die het geloofwaardig maken.
Misschien zijn het iets te veel menselijke motieven die in de beweegredenen van alle figuren te vinden zijn en wat weinig buitenaards. Toch is het verhaal zo sterk dat ik me daar niet eens aan kan storen.

Ik kijk alweer uit naar het negende deel. ( )

Man this universe just keeps getting more and more surreal. That's what you get where Sci-Fi is real, Fantasy is real, and you want to really explore just what it means to be *people*.

You get owl people:



Poop people:



Although those don't appear to be actually people, just animated feces. As if that's better.

But really, the large large majority of this story is taken up with the aftermath of the miscarriage right at the end of [Saga, Volume 7](). The baby is dead and they have to deal with that. Abortion, even of a miscarriage, appears to be illegal in this universe, and they have to deal with that. These are former soldiers trying to be good pacifists and truely pro-life... and they have to deal with that.



In the end, they go to basically 'the planet of the abortionists', where even the *legal* ones can't deal with her. So they have to take an adventure off to the dark side of the planet:



... to meet with an Endwife of all things:



And of course, the hardest hitting bit of all this is poor Hazel. She's a child, with a child's view on the world and a child's innocence:



But that doesn't mean that she still doesn't have to process the idea that the brother she thought she was getting... isn't coming any more. But at least she gets one chance that most (all?) in our world will never get:



A chance to bond with something that at least appears to be her brother. It's something of a sense of closure at least. And given that her baby sitter was a ghost--and re-died and her grandfather died and everyone dies around her... It's something worth doing.

Anyways. That got dark. And that's not even all of it.

We're still dealing with the nature of normality, and who better to talk about it than those two.



And that's only a few of the stories in this volume! There's still The Will, who's gotten to be in terrible shape. He is ... not a good person and kind of broken. But I'm curious to see how that's going to end up.



Still dark. But less so? That's saying something when torture is the lighter option.

But at least there a few gems of light and humor at the end of this terribly depressing tunnel:



She's not wrong!

I'm not as in love with this series as others are, but to give credit where due: (1) Brian Vaughan continues to dig into subjects from which most other authors run (late term abortions, D&Cs, transsexuals, etc.) and (2) Fiona Staples artwork is terrific (from the rainbow? zebra horse on the cover to the asteroid/spaceship jellyfish thing. Petrichor was just awesome here, and her relationship with Hazel was superb. On the other hand, I felt the latter chapters were just thrown in to keep past characters in play, but added nothing to the present storyline(s.) ( )

Does this count as a western?

****
Gah! This series is so good, and I am SO AFRAID to continue. ( )
