Monstress, Vol. 3: Haven Reviews
I love this series.
And after the third volume I love it even more. The scrip is amazing, the drawing is breath taking and the plot is complex, well designed and very original. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. Not even if I try really hard.
This third volume, although it starts a bit slow, it quickly develops some speed and ends up telling us a lot of new things. It goes deeper into the lore, and the actual consequences of all into the present. We definitely know more about Maika, an ...more
if you need a refresher on the plot of this series, I would totally recommend reading Melanie's two fantastically detailed wrap-ups!
So this series continues to be absolutely beautiful to look at. I can't get over the perfect blend of traditional art and manga styles. Its something that seems like it absolutely should not work and yet it does.

The art is gorgeous, but there just wasn't enough clarity in the plot for me to love-love this volume.

Although I still can’t really tell you about what is going on, the art is so mesmerizing that it does not matter. There is lots of blood and gore and evil monsters - most of them absolutely gorgeous women in breathtaking steampunk art-deco surroundings. Love it. Give me more.
First 2 volumes where on tip to get 5 stars but quite there. Volume 3 goes slightly over that threshold and gets 5 stars. What I like about volume 3 the most is that we see character development in Zinn. He is no longer shapeless Lovecraftian horror (he is not even horror for that matter) but an actual character.
Illustrations are still one of prettiest I seen.
