Collecting: Saga 43-48.

Spoilers if you have not read the last few issues 

Note: Lots of Adult Content in this one

Another really sad and emotional issue for me. The family is trying to find a place to insure that Alana does not get sick (not going into more detail because I don't want to spoil big things).  Hazel makes a few new friends and it is so great to see her actually acting like a kid - being in this war has not been good for her.

This issue had a lot of really funny things mixed into it's heavy violence and just overall content. A fidget spinner reference is always funny, even more so because the fad has died down. Overall this issue really brought it back for me. I was having some reservations about continuing the series in the middle books but I am glad that I stuck it out. These aren't for everyone though- there is a  lot of sex, violence, and graphic content.
