Review quote

"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 "Monstress is a sprawling epic fantasy that drops
readers into the middle of a magic-filled alternate history. Described as a kind
of 'matriarchal Asia,' Maika's universe is wracked by a race war and inhabited
by violent witch-nuns, vicious deities, and innocent civilians-all of which is
brought to life by Takeda's exquisite manga-style, Art Deco-inspired art."
-The Atlantic "Monstress mixes steampunk and fantasy in the best
way." -Complex "...as ambitious as George R.R. Martin or J.R.R.
Tolkien..." -The Los Angeles Review of
Books "Feels like a battle cry."
-Vox.com "Filled to the brim with awesome."
-Kirkus Reviews
