Monstress, Volume 2 continues a yarn woven from mythic threads picked from both the East and West, giving way to something that somehow feels both fresh and ancient. It’s a miraculous gut punch, seamlessly synthesizing horror and beauty in illustrations that brim with both breathtaking violence and the most tender humanity. The huge cast of women populating the matriarchy of the Monstress series are the kind who shatter their archetypes on the rocks, the type of women who contain multitudes. The story of a furious girl with a monster inside her moves forward with or without you. Why not come along? Recommended By Cosima C., Powells.com
