Not bad
Monstress Volume 1: Awakening - Marjorie M. Liu

This isn't bad.  It's an interesting idea.   The artwork is wonderful.  But the story doesn't fully grab or engage me.  I will be reading vol 2 considering I got it the same time, but it isn't a drving narrative.

I love this series! Maika continues her search by traveling to the Isle of Bone. Beautiful illistrations, and complex story-telling and mythology.

Monstress #2: The Blood
Monstress Volume 2: The Blood - Marjorie M. Liu

This series continues to impress with both its art and its storytelling. I was worried the quality established in the early issues couldn't be sustained, but if anything this collection is even better. In this volume the story and world expand, but none of the intimacy is lost. As some questions are answered still more are poised. I'm completely hooked, and I can't wait for more.

I don't know that I've ever seen a series as beautiful as this one. Every panel is as intricate and lovely as the cover art. It's astonishing that this is a full monthly title and not a short run comic. Add in the carefully crafted plot, well conceived world-building, and full cast of kick-ass characters (most of them women), and this series is a gem. A delicious blend of dark fantasy with a dash of cosmic horror, steampunk, and Asian mythology. This one is not to be missed.

No idea what's going on
Monstress Volume 2: The Blood - Marjorie M. Liu

I have no idea what's going on here, I adore the art-work and several of the characters are very interesting but I want to care more and I can't find it in me, I care about a lot of the peripheral characters but the main characters aren't as compelling.  I'm following more of the art than the story and finding myself lost in the pretty.
