It has been awhile since I read any Monstress, but from what I remember:

- The artwork is *gorgeous*. Apart from having a good story, this is worth checking out just for that.
- 'Nekomancer' is a bit of a groaner in the middle of such serious proceedings, but Ren is great anyway.
- If Maika's only hope is to make friends, she's probably in a lot of trouble. :)

It's absolutely beautiful, and also super dense It's not necessarily that it's that wordy of a comic, either - there's a lot of dialogue, but there's so much going on in the visuals, too. Tstuff that would be a splash page in a different series gets maybe a third of a page here.

(This is also to say that I'm behind in reading this, because the time I budgeted for reading the entire work was spent reading just the first - 200 page! - volume).
