I started reading Saga back when Saika first recced it on this blog, and so far, it’s been a great ride. While I love Alana, Marko, and Hazel, my favorite part of the comic is actually The Will, his sidekick Lying Cat, and his plotline with Sophie. The Will starts out as a Freelancer who’s hunting down our protagonists, but he quickly gets sidetracked when he accidentally encounters a young girl, Sophie, being held captive as a sex slave. In trying to free her, he gets himself into a lot of trouble. The Will, Sophie, Gwendolyn, and The Brand are an unique iteration of Saga‘s focus on family, and they’re my favorite type of family—the found family type. Which is why I was so annoyed when the comic switched focus to the robots, who I don’t care about at all. Fortunately, in AO3’s small collection of Saga fanfic, there was one that seemed like it was written just for me.
