The graphic novel Monstress, written by Marjorie Liu and illustrated by Sana Takeda, explores themes of identity, conflict, innocence, family, and friendship as its characters navigate an alternate world torn apart by a war and oppression. Featuring settings that juxtapose art deco beauty and steampunk horror, where science and magic are indistinguishable and ghosts of ancient gods walk the earth, Monstress is a powerful story of loss, revenge, and redemption in the face of tremendous odds. Torn between episodes of wolf-like hunger and a deadly temper, Maika is both a hunter and the hunted as various forces track her down. Her journey leads her to unexpected places and to ancient powers of good and evil, all the while revealing new clues about her mother’s life and the legacy she has left behind for Maika to discover, one piece at a time.
