Volume 5 is the first one where all the story's elements finally clicked for me.

Marko and Alana have some solid character development in this arc. Staples' renderings of Hazel make her role in the plot all the more heartbreaking, as does her older self's narration. Vaughan uses a dark sense of humor and jarring moments of violence here to greater effect than in the previous volumes. The flashback to how Landfall and Wreath's war has created massive devastation across other worlds pulls the reader into almost wanting to identify with Dengo and the Last Revolution.

For me, Saga has only gained more depth and a powerfully mature use of pathos in this latest installment. Can't wait for Volume 6!

As a side note, I wish Amazon were better about delivering graphic novels undamaged. My edition came with the back's bottom corner wrinkled.
