A bit of good (and unexpected) news. Monstress was named Best Comic of 2018 in Entertainment Weekly, which was a lovely surprise. Team Monstress is deeply grateful for that honor.
Also, Image just released the cover image for next year’s hardcover deluxe edition, which will compile Vol 1-3. Clocking in at over 500 pages, we’ll include never-before-seen art and other goodies. Expect that to hit in July 2019 — and in the meantime, Monstress #19 kicks off a new arc on January 23, 2019. Get ready!
