4/5⭐ Yes, good, beautiful. I love how much more we get with every volume: more Kippa, more complexity, more danger, more stakes.
That cracking sound you heard about an hour ago was just my heart breaking.
Snuck in another comic tonight. Monstress is phenomenal—Liu‘s writing is spectacular & Takeda‘s artwork is outstanding—& keeps on getting better & better. This comic is hard to explain. It‘s far easier to say it‘s well worth your time & a fantastic read—great worldbuilding, compelling characters, complex & absorbing story along with visually stunning art set this award winning comic apart from others. Can‘t wait to see what happens next!
Stunning art, as usual, for this one. The story is complex and was a little hard to follow in this issue. I got the feeling that mainly the characters are being positioned for the next installment. Good to see more of Kippa‘s backstory in this one. 3.5⭐️ #hoopla
The fourth volume in this series doesn‘t read as strong as the previous three volumes. The story has grown so large that it‘s becoming more difficult to track all the characters and how they connect. This fourth volume comes together in the end, but I was a bit lost during the first half of it. I‘m still on board for the long haul and am eager to see how it all eventually ends. Sana Takeda‘s art is as gorgeous as ever. #graphicnovel #fantasy
It‘s Wednesday!!! I❤️#ncbd! Trades to read—Fear Agent, Vol. 1, Deadly Class, Vol. 8 & Monstress, Vol. 4. Several new comics out today & I picked up The Dollhouse Family #1, Family Tree #1, Far Sector #1 & Folklords #1. And ongoing comics—Wonder Woman #82, Collapser #5, & Runaways #27 (if you are a fan of Rainbow Rowell & not reading this comic, I urge to take a look, it‘s excellent). There is so much awesome here, I don‘t know where to start!
A second comic finished for #24B4Monday
The story continues in this fourth volume and we get some more backstory on Maika. The characters are also preparing for war. Not sure what else to say without spoiling anything.
I can‘t wait for volume 5.
So I am kinda obsessed with Monstress today, and, well this is kinda orange, isn‘t it? And definitely chilling. And gorgeous at the same time. Those women are beautiful and terrible.

I absolutely adore this series. I don‘t like horror much yet I love this - the art is gorgeous, there are powerful women, complex characters, storyline, myths, betrayals, intrigue... everyone is bad (with perhaps the exception of Kippa), but almost everyone also has something good in them.
In this volume, Kippa has a great storyline, and Maika meets her father... and learns things she wishes she didn‘t. And what‘s up with Tuya? ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Ah finally the 4th volume! As expected loved every page. More of the fox girl and the most adorable dog ever! Besides the cuteness, this time Marika meets her father but he is not the father figure she expects and she escapes and finally winds up with the rest of her crew. Looking forward to the next volume out to see if the war does break out and what happens between Zinn and Marika!
It came. I was waiting for this forever!!
I rarely buy books, even rarer that I pre-order them, but this is the fourth book I have pre-ordered and received on publish day in the last month. They just keep coming, what can I say, all my favorites are productive :)
Monstress issue 23 is my #CoverOfTheWeek.
To be fair... Sana Takeda pretty much always steals the cover of the week every month Monstress comes out. I mean...her covers and interior art is friggen next level stuff. 🤷🏼♂️
