Monstress, Vol. 1: Awakening (Monstress #1) Reviews

  • Bradley

    Here's something awesome for you. I'm a TOTAL pushover for great art, great nasty story, and MONSTERS INSIDE US.

    I mean, I've read the whole Naruto series twice and that whole story arc of the kid with the nine-tailed demon fox living within him was all kinds of awesome. So why do I love Monstress?

    The demon living inside her, of course. SOOOO COOL!

    Really, though, the artwork is all kinds of amazing and the story kicks me in my bollocks. It's bloody, it's disturbing, it's setting us up for all kin

  • Carol (Bookaria)

    This is a graphic novel with elements of fantasy, feminism, violence, and diversity.

    The main character is a teenager named Maika searching for a past she doesn't remember. On her path she finds people, some are friends, some are enemies and she doesn't know who to trust. Maika is also struggling with a powerful and mysterious "thing" inside of her which threatens to take control.

    The art is beautiful and very detailed, just look at the image below, it's one of my favorites in the book.

    In the sto

    If, prior to reading this, someone said to me, Wanna read a comic that's loosely classified as a Steampunk Fantasy?

    Well, I would have politely (and slowly) backed away from them while turning the offer down in no uncertain terms. I mean, is Steampunk even still a thing?

    I remember it was all the rage there for a while, and then it just seemed to peter out of vogue -kinda like sparkly vampires and shirtless werewolves.

    For those of you who may love and/or live this genre, please don

    "To quote the poets... we're fucked."

    Welcome to the world of magic and mayhem with wondrous visuals.

    This dark and visually-stunning comics does not hold back on anything in its portrayal of wartime depravity. From slavery and torture to racism, cannibalism and coming to grips with postwar traumatic experiences.

    It took me a while to really get into the story but I instantly fell in love with two things - the breathtaking artwork and the sweet and adorable little muffin, Kippa. 😍

  • Emma

    There's more hunger in the world than love.

    4.25 stars.

    Monstress is a harsh, gritty story set in a stunning Asian fantasy/steampunk world. It's honestly one of the best graphic novels I've ever read, and has some of the most beautiful art I've ever seen.

    I think I've mentioned in previous reviews that I tend to struggle with visual stories, since I find it harder to connect to/emotionally invest in them. That wasn't the case with Monstress, though—these pages are bursting with fantastic characte ...more

  • Evelina | AvalinahsBooks

    What stunning artwork! A really short read, but I can't wait to see the next one. This part is like a short glimpse into a really mysterious and very different world, but so little is given, it leaves you wishing for more. You'll want to find out how this world works - why do these people look mostly like humans but are not? Why do the real humans dissect, torture and even eat these human-looking characters who talk? Why is the world almost solely made of women? What are the two-tailed talking c ...more

  • Sesana

    Three stars almost entirely for the pretty, pretty art. What you see on the cover is what you get, and it's gorgeously and beautifully detailed. It's a very nice book to look at. The story, on the other hand, is not as pretty. The reader is thrown in the deep end with very little background information. Sometimes that can work, but here, I was mostly just confused. It takes three issues to get a clear definition of what an Arcanic is, for example. It makes the first few issues more difficult to ...more

  • aria [dear darling reader]



    This got me at the edge of my seat. It gripped me in the right ways and satisfied me when it ended.


    Maika, girl with one arm and a mark in her chest, was sold at an auction.

    She was branded as an archaic.

    Cumeans ate archaics because of the benefits that it gives them.

    Maika hates them.

    Maika needed answers.

    She was able to breach their city and spread chaos.
