Waiting on Wednesday – Monstress
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.
Admittedly, I don’t read many comics. But the ones I have read, I have really enjoyed. So, seeing not just the description of this one, but the art? Yep. I’m keeping my eye out of for it. And just to convince you why, I’m including some panels I found of it. Gorgeous!

“Monstress is about an outsider, a young woman who belongs nowhere; it is about young women who fight, who tame, who are consumed—and who become monsters in their own right,” said Liu. “I wanted to tell a story that encompasses all these things, and more. A story about women, young and old, picking up the pieces after surviving the horrors of war—and finding a home for themselves in a world that has otherwise exploited them. Set in an alternate history to our own, where immense Cloverfield-like monstrosities have conquered half the planet, and spanning the steppes of a shattered Asia, to the destroyed heart of a fallen Europe, Monstress is an epic adventure of frontiers and empires, and the rise of a young woman warrior, whose power may either doom or redeem the planet.”
