As I say with every Monstress -- the art is amazing!!! You should read these, or at least look at them, they are so pretty!

In this issues we are on the seas traveling to find out more about Maika's mother's story and what became of her and really how that translates into what has happened to Maika. Maika is still struggling with her inner demon... literally. This part of the story was more contained than others - we only follow one group of people who are all on the boat with Maika. The story is starting to pick up pace and I am interested in seeing what happens when they get to their destination.

These comics are not for the faint of heart - they are violent have have a lot of mature themes and I can only imagine that they will get more forceful as the story progresses. There are a lot of people after Maika and her magic for both good and evil reasons.
