Set in an alternate, early-20th-century Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steampunk, Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda's Monstress has been called one of the most daring new series and the best comics of 2015. At its center, a young girl who has suffered tremendous loss struggles to survive the trauma of war. But she also shares a mysterious link with a monster of tremendous power, filling her with fear over what lives inside her and also forging a connection that will transform them both. Beautiful and epic, Monstress is an empowering story of woman as a monster, a warrior, and a force that will no longer be exploited. For a look inside the stunning saga and a chance to meet its creators, join us for an evening with Liu and Takeda featuring a talk by Liu and a signing with Liu and Takeda.
