Why yes, this did originally come out back in July. It’s been sitting on my “to review” stack for that long too. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to get around to actually getting out my thoughts about this particular title. Probably because this first volume of “Monstress” is a very ambitious one with the story it’s trying to tell and the world it’s trying to create and it’s not entirely successful in these areas. Yet it’s still an amazingly beautiful comic with an unusual and intriguing dynamic between its protagonist and the monster sealed inside her.
