“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s an opportunity to spotlight upcoming releases I’m eagerly anticipating.
Monstress, Vol 1
Author: Marjorie M. Liu
Release Date: July 19, 2016
Series: Monstress #1
So excited for this collection of the first six issues of “Monstress” to come out this summer! The artwork is just gorgeous looking and I’m a huge fan of Liu’s writing. I had been hoping to read it issue by issue, but the first issue is near impossible to find right now. Can’t wait to get my hands on this.
Back Cover Description:
Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900’s Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steampunk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both. Entertainment Weekly praised MONSTRESS as “one of Image Comics’ most imaginative and daring new series” and dubbed it the “Best New Original Series” in their year-end “Best Comics of 2015” list.
