It’s either bitter irony or cruel coincidence that I’m reviewing what could be considered the “pro-choice” volume of Saga. Alana and (now) Earl Robot arrive in a place that’s literally called Abortion Town in order to get her a termination at eight months. I should try not to be preachy, but fuck it tbh; it’s not like people listen to women anyway. Chances are, anyone seeking a termination at eight months isn’t doing so because they suddenly decided against it. It occurs in the wake of tragedy, and Alana’s plight mirrors so many.
