Monstress Volume 1: Awakening

Monstress Volume 1: Awakening

"Sana Takeda will take your breath away with her art just as Marjorie Liu punches you in the gut with her writing. Beautiful art deco steampunk illustrations flesh out the world of a 1900s Asian-inspired matriarchal society. In this first volume of the award-winning science fiction and fantasy graphic series, a young warrior and amputee wrestles with the trauma of war and the monster living inside of her."

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. About the Creators: New York Times bestselling and award-winning writer Marjorie Liu is best known for her fiction and comic books. She teaches comic book writing at MIT, and leads a class on Popular Fiction at the Voices of Our Nation (VONA) workshop. Ms. Liu's extensive work includes the bestselling "Astonishing X-Men" for Marvel Comics, which featured the gay wedding of X-Man Northstar and was subsequently nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding media images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Prior to writing full-time, Liu was a lawyer. She currently resides in Boston. Sana Takeda is an illustrator and comic book artist who was born in Niigata, and now resides in Tokyo, Japan.
