Maika and Corvin make their way

through a warped and lethal land in search of Kippa, who is faced with her own

terrible monsters. But when Maika comes face-to-face with a stranger from her

deep past, startling truths are uncovered, and at the center of it all lurks a

dangerous conspiracy that threatens the Known World. Maika is finally close to

getting all the answers she ever wanted, but at what price? With war on the

horizon-a war no one wants to stop-whose side will Maika choose? Collects

"Takeda's visuals recall realistic, gritty manga such as Lone Wolf and Cub, with magic and monsters to rival those of Hayao Miyazaki's films.” -Publishers Weekly

"Intricate and detailed, with a definite manga influence, Takeda's artwork creates a lush and dangerous world for Liu's equally dangerous characters. The work is infused with feminist themes; almost all of the characters are strong-and deadly-women.” -School Library Journal

“Filled to the brim with awesome.” -Kirkus Reviews

“ ambitious as George R.R. Martin or J.R.R. Tolkien...” -The Los Angeles Review of Books

"The best way to understand the complicated mythos of Monstress is to dive in headfirst and let it wash over you...On top of that, you don't need to know much to appreciate the breathtaking beauty of Takeda's art. No other comic looks like Monstress. Takeda's painting creates a world where dreamlike and horrific fantasy creatures exist side-by-side with incredibly complex steampunk technology." -Entertainment Weekly

“If you want big, beautiful, terrifying, violent magic, Monstress is your next favorite comic.” -Cosmopolitan
