Brian

Missed this comic so much while it was gone and love so much that it’s back, but it’s even better to enjoy it with this show every month

PodsPodsPods4evah ,

I want everyone to read this book, and this podcast is the perfect way to get into it

This comic changed my life and I love reading the new issues with Abu and Alan. AND I love that the read-along episodes are a way to get my friends into the book. Can’t wait to see what comes next!

What more could you ask for?!

Great podcast about SAGA! The chapter re-caps of past volumes are great! Breakdowns of new issues when they arrive are great! The extra stuff like fav panels, quotes, etc. are great! Great comic, great cast ❤️
