Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
I was not expecting to love this comic as much I as I did. Mostly just because I really didn’t know what to expect. But let me just say. I freaking loved this comic.
Monstress is set in war torn fantasy steampunk world. Our main character Maika is bad ass lady on a mission of revenge. There’s lots of mystery around her character and she’s very well written. I have so many questions! Like why does she only have one arm? What exactly happened to her mother? Basically I desperately need the next volume in this series.
The art work for this comic is phenomenal, and the writing just as good. There are so many unique art styles for comics and it’s so cool to see. The story is a bit violent at times, so just be aware of that. There’s also nudity and use of the f word. But please don’t let that turn you away from Monstress, as it’s truly a great story.
I gave this book five stars on Goodreads and was given a copy of Monstress by NetGalley in exchange for a fair review.
