Ashley's pick: This is a graphic novel series that is shaping up to be really promising. The art is UNREAL. This comic features a really beautiful, immersive world, a kickass heroine, super awesome magic powers, and an ability to weave real political commentary into a fantasy comic landscape. Maika is a seriously badass war refugee who fights racism, xenophobia and human trafficking all while housing the power of a literal god inside herself. I mean. Y’all. And did I mention the art? Imagine the love child of a full-color manga and Fiona Staples. It’s like that. Powerful as hell, a really great read.

About the book: Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900's Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steam punk, Monstress tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both and make them the target of both human and otherworldly powers.
