A Review of Marjorie Liu's and Sana Takeda's Monstress Volume 1 (Issues 1-6)I've been eyeing it for weeks, but I finally picked up Monstress at my local comic book store. Let me tell you's it's worth it. If you like diverse representation, rich art, interesting worldbuilding, Lovecraftian horror, and a healthy dose of the macabre that is. It's a dark world, so beware, but the honest exploration of slavery, war, PTSD, and coping with feeling like a monster on the inside (and actually being one) makes it worthwhile.
*Trigger warnings for a rape threat, death and maiming (including children), cannibalism, gore, and body horror.*
