January 2017 | New Comics Week 4 — Saga #42 (Image Comics)
I cannot honestly remember the last time a comic book made me tearful. The all-black back pages, easily six of them, really helped deliver the gut punch and the kick to the heart. I literally gasped “Really, Brian and Fiona!?!?” BKV may be the best in the biz with his issue-to-issue cliffhangers and even bigger story arc cliffhangers. But he also does not do cheap stunts/deaths/fakeouts. He always delivers on your emotional investment. Knowing that makes this issue burn intensely.
