    It felt like Saga was building to something special given the series’ first-ever unannounced delays in the months between Saga #65 capped off the narratives surrounding both Alanna and The Will in the current arc. And Saga has trained readers very well to expect monumental and tragic changes in sixth issues. When readers recognize the elements at play in this particular issue, there will be plenty of expectations that summon a mood of absolute dread and an abundance of tension. Brian K. Vaughan plays against those expectations with every page turn as he leads both the issue’s primary point of view and readers down a rabbit hole. Those who resist the urge to flip ahead will be rewarded with reversals and one of the most intriguing final pages in Saga so far. Whether or not the new concepts introduced in this issue will pay off is a story likely years ahead of us, but the introduction makes the sort of bold promise that originally set Saga on the map and promises that the series still has plenty of good road to travel.

    In a story arc finale without the main cast of characters, “Saga” still touches on the emotionally strong hooks that make the series so beloved.

    Saga #66 is a good issue, although it goes by too quickly. With only two scenes, it feels a bit short, even if the tension and drama are high. Saga continues to be great and an example of master storytelling, whether that story is big or small.
