*Published September 11, 2018*
The third volume of Monstress, the majority of time is spent at Pontus, their current place of refuge. Throughout their stay, we learn more about Maika, the demon that resides inside of her, Ren and Kippa. We actually have a lot of more time dedicated to Ren and Kippa in this volume and we learn more about them than we have in the two previous volumes.
We also learn more about Maika and the demon that lives inside her and the plans that everyone else in the world has planned for that power. As Maika struggles to harness her control over the demon she also needs to find out and learn more about her mother and the shards of a mask she was trying to gather.
Some of the best things about this comic is the art. This is a beautifully drawn world; an ugly story placed within a pretty skin. It’s just beautiful and I love the way the characters are drawn! It’s all just beautiful and steampunkish! Wonderful!
