Review: Saga, Volume 4 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Summary: Checking back in with our little family, things aren't exactly peachy. They are hiding out on a planet, trying to give Hazel as normal a childhood as possible. Alana has a job in slightly shady entertainment, while Marko stays at home, taking care of Hazel. 
The family is struggling. And of course, they are not safe, people are still searching for them. The saga continues.
My Thoughts: I liked this Volume, but it wasn't my favorite out of the bunch. The majority of the comic, the family wasn't happy. Marko is seeking comfort in other "friends," and Alana is turning to something more dangerous. The danger does ratchet up as the Volume goes on. Things get interesting.
I will say, these Volumes can be so weird. Some of the illustrations can be so shocking. Most times, I feel as though it's done for shock value, and not necessarily important to the story plot. The illustrations are very pretty and colorful, but they can just be so weird!
This is a fun comic series that I do enjoy reading. Can't wait to see how things continue in Volume 5.
