CBCC 7: Marko & Alana - Saga Vol. 3

January 18, 2019

What's that old cliche? Never meet your heroes. Well, in the pivotal third volume of "Saga" from Image Comics, Marko & Alana flee to Quietus in an effort to encounter the brilliant mind that birthed the novel that originally bonded their hearts. D. Oswald Heist is everything and nothing like his dust jacket promised. This brief and bizarre relationship will not only steer their lives, but that of their daughter, their stowaway companions, and their nefarious pursuers.

Our third episode on the romantic struggle of Marko & Alana may very well be our most personal discussion yet. Hosts Brad & Lisa open up about their own disagreements and their most epic battles they've waged in their first ten years of marriage. And yes, they are still struggling to adopt the words of John Gray and the awkward metaphors of "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus." More importantly, though, they are finding great empathy in the science-fiction adventures of Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples and are excited to continue their venture into one of today's most popular comics.
