Monstress Vol. 2: The Blood
WRITER: MARJORIE LIU
ARTIST: SANA TAKEDA
The Eisner-nominated Monstress is back!
In the aftermath of their battle against both the Cumaean Mother Superior and the Arcanic Dusk Court, Maika, Kippa, and Ren fled to the seaside nation of Thyria. There, Maika finds a clue to help her unlock the secrets of her mother’s life and obsession with the legendary Shaman-Empress: a key made of the bone of an unknown creature.
Along with a crew of Arcanic pirates-turned-smugglers, Maika sets sail towards the Isle of Bones in search of answers to her past and the Monstrum that lies underneath her skin. She and her companions brave many dangers, including ghost-haunted waters and a powerful Ancient, and uncover terrible truths that threaten their survival.

“This series is impossible to classify; genre elements mingle in mythical and gleefully subversive ways.” – N.K. Jemisin, New York Times Book Review
“The entire narrative feels like it’s building to something grand, something as epic as Lord of the Rings. Relatable characters in such a lore-heavy tale elevate Monstress Vol. 2 to the stuff of legends.” – ComicsVerse
