Monstress #1

Published: November, 2015
Writer: Marjorie Liu
Artist: Sana Takeda

A young woman named Maika — an outsider, an outcast — begins to unravel her mysterious past, and in the process discovers she’s got a tenuous psychic connection to a powerful, otherworldly creature, one of many that roam the earth.

This link puts her in the cross-hairs of an old battle between competing supernatural and human factions, all of whom desire control over these elusive creatures.

What none of them count on is Maika herself — her courage, her intelligence, her compassion— or the fact that she’s slowly becoming something more than human.

A dark fantastic adventure set in an alternate 1900s Asia, Monstress #1 came out in November, 2015 and was fast-tracked for a second printing to keep up with the high customer demand. Read more about Monstress on Tumblr, in interviews with Marjorie Liu, or in the reviews below.
