This is a series I have come to love in the past two years, I seem to spend a lot of my time waiting for the next volume to come out, read it straight away and then wait for the next one. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Anyway, it is time for a review.
The story continues from the last volume a little while after the last volume finished. The reporters, Marko, Alana, Hazel, Prince Robot IV, Ghus, Squire and Petrichor are all together waiting for the ship to refuel. During the weeks it takes for the ship to refuel Prince Robot tries to find a way to make sure his relationship with Petrichor can continue and he finds a way, by releasing a story to the reporters who in turn will be able to turn Robot, Petrichor and Squire into their species allowing them to go anywhere and be together. Squire doesn’t like this idea so runs away.
The Will is now being used to do his captors bidding and it turns out she wants to find Marko, Alana and Hazel.
I think if I remember correctly this is the first time in the series so far where all of the main characters have been on the same island and together. This is what I have been waiting for and now that I have finally got it, i found myself wanting to go slow so i was able to absorb every scene in the novel but at the same time wanting to speed through so I could find out what happens at the end. All I am going to say about the ending of this graphic novel is that I bet you wont guess it.
This is what I want from a long series like this, I want to be kept on my toes. I don’t want to guess what is going to happen next as when I get to that point in a series I get bored and want to stop reading. Thankfully Saga just keeps on bringing surprise after surprise making me wait 6 months between novels and I’m loving every second of it.
The art style is still the same and I wouldn’t change it for a single second, you get all the detail you could possibly want in the art while at the same time keeping the cartoony style that I have come to love.
This series just seems to get better and better with each passing volume and I can’t wait to find out what they are going to do in Volume 10. I’ve been Aaron Morrsi and I’ll see you next time.
