Read full description of the books Monstress #2:I can't rate this one quite as high as the first because it's a much more bite-sized chunk of story but if this was a collected part of a volume I am certain it would hold up. What I did love about this issue is that we once more see the expansive nature of this world and the way that there is always an awful lot more going on than first meets the eye. So far we know that humans are against the Arcanic and that a wall divides the two, there have been wars and tragedy for both sides, and there's been heavy losses and burdens for the survivors to bear. One of those survivors is our main character Maika. She's suffering with all sorts of magical and post-traumatic problems which are just barely being hinted at with mysterious dark forms, creatures and panels.
Alongside all of this we have mystery, ancient artefacts and creepy witchy-people who have brutal magical powers. Then there's deformity and Japanese/Chinese-inspired cats with multiple tails, Unicorns, and other oddities which make this just perfect to read and enjoy. It is a fairly bloody series, as you'd expect because it's the aftermath of a war, and the landscape of the world looks set to become much larger than we've so far seen.
Overall this is a really great series and I love reading it and picking it up each month. Definitely already looking forward to next month's issue :) 4.5*s overall for this one!
Read information about the authorNew York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Marjorie Liu is best known for her fiction and comic books. She teaches comic book writing at MIT, and she leads a class on Popular Fiction at the Voices of Our Nation (VONA) workshop.
Ms. Liu is a highly celebrated comic book writer. Her extensive work with Marvel includes the bestselling Dark Wolverine series, NYX: No Way Home, X-23, and Black Widow: The Name of the Rose. She received national media attention for Astonishing X-Men, which featured the gay wedding of X-Man Northstar and was subsequently nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding media images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Ms. Liu also wrote the story for the animated film, Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher, which was produced by Marvel, Sony Pictures Entertainment (Japan) Inc., and Madhouse Inc.
Her newest work is MONSTRESS, an original, creator-owned comic book series with Japanese artist (and X-23 collaborator) Sana Takeda. Published by Image in Fall 2015, MONSTRESS is set in an alternate, matriarchal 1920’s Asia and follows a girl’s struggle to survive the trauma of war. With a cast of girls and monsters and set against a richly imagined aesthetic of art deco-inflected steam punk, MONSTRESS #1 debuted to critical praise. The Hollywood Reporter remarked that the longer than typical first issue was “world-building on a scale rare in mainstream comics.”
Ms. Liu is also the author of more than 19 novels, most notably the urban fantasy series, Hunter Kiss, and the paranormal romance series, Dirk & Steele. Her novels have also been bestsellers on USA Today, which described Liu “as imaginative as she is prolific.” Her critically praised fiction has twice received the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award, for THE MORTAL BONE (Hunter Kiss #6), and TIGER EYE (Dirk & Steele #1). TIGER EYE was the basis for a bestselling paranormal romance video game called Tiger Eye: Curse of the Riddle Box.
Liu has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, MTV, and been profiled in the Wall Street Journal.com, Hollywood Reporter, and USA Today. She is a frequent lecturer and guest speaker, appearing on panels at San Diego Comic Con, the Tokyo Literary Festival, the New York Times Public Lecture series, Geeks Out; and the Asian American Writers Workshop. Her work has been published internationally, including Germany, France, Japan, Poland, and the United Kingdom.
