Saga #40

   Aside from its use of adult language and adult images, Saga really reminds me of a classic comic book.

   That's because it comes out on schedule (allowing some built-it skip months between story arcs), and each issue maintains an amazingly high level of quality in both story and art.

   That kind of craftsmanship (and craftswomanship) is rare in the history of comics, and it's wonderful to see - kudos to Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples!

   The story checks in on several key characters, including a shocking turn of events for Prince Robot, an awareness of impending responsibility for Hazel, impending danger for Marko,  a tense business deal for the assassin Gwendolyn, and a disturbing cosmic image.

   As always, the story is loaded with surprising twists and revelations.

   If you're looking for smart science fiction (and aren't we all) with great characters and powerful stories, you should be reading this comic.

   Highly recommended!

Grade: A-
