The gorgeous looking horror comic series Monstress kind of slipped under our radar, but with the first collected edition being available next month, now seems like the perfect time to give it a look.
Marjorie Liu weaved the fantastical tale of a girl living in a world reminiscent of 1900’s Asia, who forms a strange psychic bond with a creature of unimaginable size and power. Sana Takeda created the dreamlike illustrations.
Astonishing X-Men and Black Widow writer MARJORIE LIU returns to comics with artist SANA TAKEDA (X-23) for an all-new ONGOING SERIES! Steampunk meets Kaiju in this original fantasy epic for mature readers, as young Maika risks everything to control her psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, placing her in the center of a devastating war between human and otherworldly forces. The adventure begins in a spectacular TRIPLE-SIZED FIRST ISSUE, with SIXTY-SIX pages of story and no ads.
