Wake me up when September ends.
Actual review: 4.5

The artwork is just as stunning as it has ever been. I have noticed, in other graphic novels, how the art suffers with each new book, so I’m glad to see that that hasn’t happened in this series. The art has lovely texture and creativity that cannot be seen in any other graphic novel, which makes the art and the world unique to this story.

Besides the artwork, I found this edition easier to follow than the previous one. The story is about Maika, also known as ‘Halfwolf’ as she t

I need this so badly, like waiting for a whole ass year for these volumes to come out has shortened my life expectancy.

My average rating for the issues that this installment comprises of comes at 3.0, but it simply didn't feel like a 3-star one to me (especially when I take into the account the fact that that is the rating I gave to the first one).

Overall, a slim, unengaging, small-scope, low-stakes, endlessly prolonged volume - the weakest one in the series by far. Makes me want to reread the previous ones just so I could remember that these authors can, in fact, produce a good book.

I think this book really suffers from being overstuffed with cast. I can't keep track of who's betraying who or who is now secret allies, and as a direct result, I don't care. There's so much happening with no room to breathe that I don't really care about any of it.

Monstress has so many things I adore in a story: gay women, adorable fox girls, commentary on the brutal realities of war and human trafficking, talking cats, genuinely hilarious dialogue, mysterious occult relics, unspeakable violence and body horror, inconceivable eldritch monsters and their ancient lore ... what's not to love?

I only wish I could read the entire story in one sitting because I need to know if everything will be okay in the end!!? If anything happens to my sweet Kippa I might j

Things becoming a bit clearer in this fantasy comic series - entertaining stuff

Maika continues her voyage of discovery with a lot of ambivalence and justifiable mistrust. All the main characters are featured, even if it’s not always obvious who is who as many have more than one appellation. The artwork is beautifully done but the script can be a bit stilted. A fine series but I should really read the lot from the beginning to make more sense of it. Volume 5 to come.
