Reading List: Monstress Vol. 1: Awakening by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda

I definitely wandered around the comic book store, slightly overwhelmed by the amount of stories in front of me, until I was drawn to this gorgeous cover. Steampunk Horror. Alternative 1900s Asia. Beautiful and terrifying art by Sana Takeda. Fantastic and dynamic storyline by Marjorie Liu. 

This graphic novel is worth the read. Monstress weaves together the ideas of science and magic, demons and gods, and other elements one would suspect in a graphic novel recommended by Neil Gaiman. 

Everything about the world created in Monstress made me want to keep reading. There were definitely dark moments. Okay,  the whole thing was basically dark but so good. 

Also female writer and artist team so extra love for that.
