    3.5 stars The art is gorgeous, but there just wasn't enough clarity in the plot for me to love-love this volume. Everything that basically everyone says or thinks in Haven is annoyingly cryptic, and/or just when it seems they're about to answer a question, they stop and let their sentence trail off. It got to the point that I wanted to shake the characters and yell at them to say what they mean. Or, at the very least, finish what they were saying!

It got to the point that I wanted to shake the characters and yell at them to say what they mean. Or, at the very least, finish what they were saying! Maika was having these 'conversations' with Tuya in her head. Kind of like waking dreams? Or maybe she was actually asleep and they were real dreams - I don't remember. <--because it was somewhat confusing as to whether or not they were coming from Tuya or just Maika's subconscious. I guess the point is that the reader can decide, but with everything else being all woo-woo-mystical, I didn't appreciate having one more thing that wasn't concrete. And there was too much mythos for me to absorb when it came to gods vs Ancients vs Arcanics vs Cumaea vs Cats vs...whatever else lives in that universe. I'm trying to keep up, but this isn't the sort of thing that I do well unless it is fully explained. <--which is why the ambiguous storytelling bothers me so much. However, I'm still interested in seeing how this all pans out. Plus, that art is just too lush and detailed to miss out on. Also, Kippa. Gotta find out what happens to that kid!

    In a lot of ways, this third volume of Monstress is better than all the rest. But why? Didn't I love the death of Halfwolf's mother or the island or horrors in the second? Of course I did! But this third volume is all kinds of great reveals and a wonderful new location that I actually love. I have an investment here. Oh, and god battles kick major butt. :) The understory is getting SWEET, the conflicts are ramping up great, and war is here!

    I still don't really follow what's going on in this story. It moves fast and doesn't really connect dots and yet it still draws me in and fascinates me. It is a violent and interesting story who horrible horrors happen and people back stab each other. It does not seem like a very nice world. It's very cut-throat. We are on a voyage going to some island looking for a mask I think, or pieces of a mask. We learn more about the thing Inside Maika. I do love the little foxgirl.

I also don't understand what is going on with the cats. There was only a little of that story thread in the story and I assume it will be explored more in the next volume. We glimpse a little bit of the history of the Blood in Maika and the thing inside her. We still don't know much, of course, but we now know a little more. The art is fresh and amazing still and a lot keeps happening, even if I'm not sure what is really going on. I'm still interested in the story and will hang in there for more.

    In this third volume we follow Maika and her gang (mainly consisting of Kippa and Master Ren) as they are still trying to get away from the Blood Queens and thus have no choice but to seek refuge in Tear Shed in Pontus Waters. Tear Shed is a harbour town full of refugees. They have an ancient shield they are desperate to get to work again so they are trying to enlist Maika's help (because of her bloodline) in exchange for granting her and her companions sanctuary.

Tear Shed is a harbour town full of refugees. They have an ancient shield they are desperate to get to work again so they are trying to enlist Maika's help (because of her bloodline) in exchange for granting her and her companions sanctuary. Thus, old and new characters are battling it out here in their quest to find more mask fragments - war is coming and the veil between the different worlds is growing ever thinner (also explaining why Pontus Waters wants the shield working again). Meanwhile, Maika is still trying to piece together what actually happened to her, how she ended up with Zinn, why their link is different from the ones other vessels have with their old gods, what her mother's plan had been, how to stop the old gods from coming back, ... Slowly but surely, we get more puzzle pieces, learning more about the history of this world and of the single characters (their backgrounds and motivations) like master Ren for example. I'm not sure how many volumes this series is supposed to have, if there is indeed a plan, but I think the pacing works great though I still think the art is the highlight. Still a fantastic combination of Cthulhu-like gods and typical Japanese kaiju-like creatures of all kinds.

    From Bitch Planet to Lumberjanes to Monstress, the idea in many girl/woman-centric comics in the present time would seem to be depicting a world with as few men as possible. And if you watched any of the recent Kavanaugh SCOTUS hearings, it may have crossed your mind to envision this kind of future, too: How can we get rid of all these vicious, aging mean-spirited representatives of the patriarchy that is destroying women and the planet? The tones differ; Bitch Planet (for adult women) is snarky From Bitch Planet to Lumberjanes to Monstress, the idea in many girl/woman-centric comics in the present time would seem to be depicting a world with as few men as possible. And if you watched any of the recent Kavanaugh SCOTUS hearings, it may have crossed your mind to envision this kind of future, too: How can we get rid of all these vicious, aging mean-spirited representatives of the patriarchy that is destroying women and the planet? The tones differ; Bitch Planet (for adult women) is snarky and funny and profane; Lumberjanes (for young readers) is funny and sweet, and Monstress is intense and violent and lovely, ranging from cute fox girls and talking kitties to steely murderous women who all look like models (and when DO they take the time to do their hair to look like that?!). All three are All Girl Power, All the Time; Bitch Planet is connected to current political landscape; Lumberjanes is, well, set in a summer camp, and Monstress is a complex fantasy set in a medieval landscape. Men are basically peripheral in all of them. The third volume of Monstress comes on the heels of the recent 2018 Eisner Awards, where it won for best continuing series, best publication for teens, best painter/multimedia artist (Sana Takeda, who also does wildly populat Ms. Marvel with Willow Wilson), best cover artist and best writer. The main impressions I have is that 1) first and foremost it is gorgeously illustrated, atmospheric, from cute and cartoony to sleek to horrific and majestic; 2) it is, given all the pretty pictures, surprisingly profane (though this doesn’t bother me in the least, just noting); 3) it is violent and 4) I have no idea how all the various factions and dimensions work, maybe in part because I am just not much of a High Fantasy reader. There are periodic “lecture experts” from Professor Tam Tam, a history, who is supposed to help us make sense of it all, but I need more help, really So in volume 3 we finally get a Big War so we get to see how Takeda handles action (thought we already know she knows how to do bloody violence). And as with many such stories, after all the death and the world is saved, we understand that family and friendship are what makes the world go ‘round. The rest of it? Well, I am still reading! For my own taste and tolerance of multiple swirling levels of fantasy, I would say 3.5, which I round up because of the Beauty which gets ten stars, and because some very real action happens and some stuff gets resolved and because of the main girl character and Girl Power, yay.

Recently, I've found myself disappointed in graphic novels with a high fantasy story, and it could be that it's a format that doesn't work for me. There is just something lacking in reading a high fantasy story in this format. Usually, it's the world building. In this case, because the artwork is detailed, I think the character backgrounds, their histories and motivations are a bit lacking. We are thrust into this action-packed fight at the beginning of the series and now it has waned to include new players with their own motivations. The story has become confusing with too many new elements thrown in and not enough answers. I hope the next edition is better. And let us not forget how adorable Kippa is.

    4.5 stars. First 2 volumes where on tip to get 5 stars but quite there. Volume 3 goes slightly over that threshold and gets 5 stars. What I like about volume 3 the most is that we see character development in Zinn. He is no longer shapeless Lovecraftian horror (he is not even horror for that matter) but an actual character. Illustrations are still one of prettiest I seen.

    Art, amazing as always. Plot, continuing to grow ever more convoluted as new players, places, and powers are added. This isn't exactly a criticism, but I must admit they are hard to keep straight when reading a serial publication over time (like, the black lady with white hair who is a spy? I think was around earlier but that's all I remember). I guess later I can go back and reread for specifics. I notice that this world has trains, and also uses the adjective "olympian" as in heights.

    3.5 star Fantastic art. Love how women-centric this story is. But I can't always keep track of all the characters, especially the dark-haired women with their faces covered in some way. Hope there is a Monstress character guide somewhere on the net, or I'll be completely lost at some point.

It's a deep and complex world with wonderful messages and thought-provoking. And i'm falling in love with the characters. Maika, Kippa, Ren <3 And it makes me cry. I mean that isn't hard to do, but still.

    I am still really enjoying this series. The art is still beautiful - some of the best that I have ever seen in a graphic novel - and I adore the world-building and principal cast. However, I am starting to feel as though there is something lacking. Now that we are three volumes into the series, I would expect it to be building to something. Yet, there isn't a clear sense of that. The world is still deep and immersive, but that lack of focus makes me sometimes feel lost. I also sometimes struggle I am still really enjoying this series.

Some of the female characters in particular look very similar, and so I find that I sometimes get them mixed up. However, I still love them. The large cast is dominated by strong female characters, particularly those in positions of power. And that's just great. So, I will be certainly picking up the next trade but I do hope the series finds its focus soon. It would be a shame to waste such wonderful characters and gorgeous art on a weak plot.

    4.5 stars. I love this series so much. Maika has been explicitly confirmed as queer! I mean, it was pretty obvious from the first two volumes too, but there are people who will ignore every hint when it comes to women liking other women. Her past romance and complicated relationship with Tuya is both very compelling and heartbreaking to read and I want to know more. Maika isn't the only queer character - I described this book as a "gay steampunk Asian matriarchy", because by now I pretty much assum 4.5 stars. I love this series so much.

Maika isn't the only queer character - I described this book as a "gay steampunk Asian matriarchy", because by now I pretty much assume that every character here is queer until it's confirmed otherwise, and I love this. I love the way women are portrayed here. They're beautiful without being sexualized, and they're not written for men - it's clear that men are not the intended audience. (Also, I don't think there are any white people in this book.) Another thing I love about this series? It trusts its readers. Which means that yes, sometimes it's confusing. Sometimes I have to go back and reread parts, sometimes it takes me a while to understand what's happening. But I love how it doesn't talk down to the reader, how its world is just as complex as one you'd find in a fantasy novel - and even more beautiful, of course. This series has some of the most gorgeous panels I've ever seen. Sometimes, I went back and reread parts just for that. But I have to say that with this volume, the many PoV changes lost me sometimes. I couldn't follow so many storylines at once, with all those setting and time jumps, which added to my confusion. Also, I'm here mostly for Maika's story - both present and past - and some of the subplots just aren't as interesting. Monstress is a story about war, about a traumatized teenage girl with a terrible past and even worse secrets. It reads like a darkest, less romantic, more diverse Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It's everything I want from a fantasy comic, and I'm glad it's getting the recognition it deserves. I can't wait for the next volume - I especially want to see more about Tuya, both in the past and in the present.

    So this series continues to be absolutely beautiful to look at. I can't get over the perfect blend of traditional art and manga styles. Its something that seems like it absolutely should not work and yet it does. Its like they know right where to draw the line between too cartoony and cutesy and absurd levels of hyper violence and you get this almost entirely new kind of graphic story telling.

Its like they know right where to draw the line between too cartoony and cutesy and absurd levels of hyper violence and you get this almost entirely new kind of graphic story telling. But...I'd like the story to start moving just a bit. As book three begins the Arcanics (magical creatures descended from animal spirits who sometimes look pretty human and sometimes very animal like) and the Cumaea (realllllyyy mean witches who basically eat Arcanics for their power) are still teetering on the edge of reigniting a war that kinda sorta ended right before the series begins. Unfortunately this is where they've been for the entire run of this series and I'd love it if we could move in one direction or the other. The same goes for our anti-hero Maika Half Wolf, she who's body just happens to house a really scary "old god" that comes out and devours everything in sight periodically when he/she isn't busy fighting with Maika to the point where they're starting to sound like an old married couple. Maika needs a little more development beyond hating every single other person in the world. I don't think she says a single thing in this volume that isn't some version of "fuck you." The plans within plans within plans story lines continue with the introduction of still more amazing looking characters that I'm beginning to have trouble keeping track of and an increasing sense of urgency that "time is running out" despite it not appearing to be doing that at all since we end more or less where we began. There are continual references to secrets about the old god living in Maika and an even worse crime that he/she may have committed beyond igniting the original war that defeated and imprisoned his/her species a billion years ago but we don't get much more than hints. I just need more cake to go along with all this delicious icing. I'm still deeply, deeply invested in this series and desperately, desperately waiting for volume four BUT can we get a move on now please?

    This series is amazing and I still love it dearly, but it's just getting to the point where I often have no idea what is going on and I'm not sure if that's on me or the author [or maybe a bit of both]. And there's a thing in the front of each volume that has character descriptions but it's of the characters that you DEFINITELY already know who they are [Maika, Ren, etc] whereas I'm trying to remember all these 500 side characters who all look vaguely alike and are all apparently up to something This series is amazing and I still love it dearly, but it's just getting to the point where I often have no idea what is going on and I'm not sure if that's on me or the author [or maybe a bit of both].

I still love the world and the art and just Maika as a character in general, but I'm starting to lose the thread of the overall plot so I hope it becomes more coherent soon. I think many comic writers lose sight of the fact that often their readers haven't picked up a title in over 6 months [since the last volume] so they kind of need a bit of a refresher a lot of the time.

I can see myself re-reading this in the future, and discovering even more complexity. My only complaint is how long I have to wait for the next volume.

    Well, I don't know about this story anymore. It sure keeps one's attention, but also it gets more and more annoying with all the "unexpected plot twists" and betrayals. Also pointless gore. The graphic side is still stunning though.

    3.4 This volume had some cool developments in the story and I enjoyed it, though less so than the previous entries. One of my biggest issues after finishing volume 2 was not feeling like I quite understood where the story was going. I feel a bit more on track with that now and so my rating has paradoxically gone up a bit despite the fact I enjoyed this particular volume a bit less. The ending to this volume was also pretty cool and adds into that consideration, even if holistically the volume was 3.4 This volume had some cool developments in the story and I enjoyed it, though less so than the previous entries. One of my biggest issues after finishing volume 2 was not feeling like I quite understood where the story was going. I feel a bit more on track with that now and so my rating has paradoxically gone up a bit despite the fact I enjoyed this particular volume a bit less. The ending to this volume was also pretty cool and adds into that consideration, even if holistically the volume was otherwise a bit uneventful. The art is still generally quite strong and feels unique with its post-apocalyptic East Asian-style aesthetic that features a variety of races with their own distinct look and feel. I consider the art to be a primary draw for the series so far and it hasn't disappointed yet. Further, the settings for the different volumes thus far have been varied enough that there's a nice selection of different landscapes to display more of the world. The story itself I am more ambivalent about. There's a lot about it I really love, especially with the way it explores some of its themes and pulls no punches, as fits those fairly dark themes. I generally don't enjoy super dark stories that much these days, so the fact I've enjoyed this one in part because of that feel says a lot. Some of the other aspects of the character diversity and the uniqueness of the world elements and social structure make me want to rate this even higher just to support such stories. While there are a few tropes to the mythology that are relatively traditional, there's so much the world does that feels very different and they're things I've wanted to see for a while. There's also a wealth of places, factions, and world elements that provides a wide playground for the characters to run around in. These factors and the art are the main draws for me, even if I don't have a ton to elaborate on them specifically. But as much as big diverse worlds can be a good thing, therein also lies what I see as my biggest problem with Monstress. The story has in some ways moved fairly slowly (there is typically only one relatively major plot development per volume), but in other ways moves way too fast, at times seemingly just to incorporate as many factions and world elements into an episode as possible. I would much prefer a slower, more personal focus on the main characters and a few antagonists rather than rushing to get out those other details as soon as possible. Instead, scenes feel very intermittent, cutting to an entirely different place with different characters, most of whom I can't keep straight, back and forth fairly rapidly at times. It can be jarring and a few times I was beginning to wonder if two geographically distinct scenes were in the same room, which was really confusing. The basic mythos and world are fairly straight forward in a lot of ways, and I haven't found the world too confusing in that regard, especially since the interceding lore panels between each episode do a good job of reiterating the key points in a way that feels informative but not repetitive. But given the number of new characters introduced, each with their conflicting motivations, flickering into the spotlight within the span of a few panels, I've had a really hard time keeping up with what is actually happening in some of these subplots. I also get the feeling the answers are rarely even that complicated, I just can't keep them straight with the way the narrative flows. Some of this is on me since I could pay more attention to try and memorize who is who and why they're doing what they're doing, but there comes a point where the story should be doing some of that work for me and I don't feel like it is here. I've been able to follow the main threads well enough that I'm still enjoying the story and again, the aesthetic is often worth it in itself, so this isn't a damning criticism to me. But this issue is enough to detract from my enjoyment a lot and I could see it turning some readers off completely. It's also much of the reason for any points I've knocked off my rating. Ultimately, I'm feeling a bit how I did after volume 2. I'm intrigued enough to be willing to get the next volume (though whoa, I didn't realize these were about a year apart at least previously), but also feeling pretty lost on a lot more than I feel like I should be with the story. I will say, if the story were a bigger commitment with longer volumes that would take away from my time reading other things, I might not be so willing to continue with it. But as I'm trying to keep in mind, despite my frustrations, there is a lot I am really enjoying about it and I'm definitely interested in seeing where it goes from here. I might try rereading the previous volumes before the next one to refresh my memory and understanding as I could see that helping with my primary qualms with the story.

    Probably a 3.5. This series continues to be as confusing as ever. The world is too expansive and things are happening in different parts of the world at the same time, but I can’t keep track of them. Nobody’s intentions are entirely clear and I always feel that there are more questions than answers.

Maika hopes for some respite from all the people trying to kill her but she can’t escape her predicament even in the neutral city of Pontus. When more horrors await, it was interesting to see her work together with the monster inside her, Zinn. I never thought I would enjoy their dynamic but I really did. Cats are still the most mysterious of the characters but I was still shocked when I saw the truth about Master Ren. Kippa is the most precious character in this whole series and just reading about how good and compassionate she is brought tears to my eyes. She is probably the main reason I’m continuing with this but that cliffhanger ending has just made it impossible for me to give up. I LOVE YOU KIPPA ❤️❤️❤️ The art style is amazing and elaborate as usual and I commend the artist’s talent of being able to convey so much through the panels. And the different kinds of characters depicted here are some of the best I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to see what more is in store for us.
