    Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this new issue, finding it to be a great introduction to the third story arc. There is a lot going on here, and I do recommend brushing up on your Monstress lore, reminding yourself of what unfolded in the previous story arc. The wheels are in motion, and Maika is stepping into the next phase of her journey. Read Full Review

    Reading Monstress is absolutely more an experience than just reading another comic book. Its another great example of a creative team meshing together and making each others abilities shine even more. Now is the perfect time to jump on board Monstress and go back and read or reread the first 12 issues. It is time in another world that is well spent. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Shannon Cuthbert Jan 25, 2018

    MONSTRESS #13 is a quick but worthy read for all fans of Liu and Takeda's best-selling series. Stunning art perfectly shows the interplay of light and shadow that characterizes Maika's world. Our protagonist continues to drown in a world of secrets and half-truths, where thoughts of love and family stir up old darknesses. Read Full Review

    Monstress #13 is a comic that has emerged from a slumber with an even greater sense of urgency than the high point at which the previous arc concluded. Read Full Review

    Monstress has been away for far too long and stepping back into it is a breath of fresh air. I've so missed this comic and this issue is a well-crafted ease back into the madness and fury and opulence that is Monstress. I will add that fans may have to hit the back issues to familiarize themselves as the break has been long and you may have forgotten about a character or two. This is a strong entry back into the series. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jan 30, 2018

    Monstress #13 is a challenging but overall intriguing read set in a deep and complex world with complex politics and driven characters. Its hard to get into it, especially with its liberal use of its own arcane terminology. However, I still find myself recommending it for how interesting the world is and the beautiful art by Sana Takeda. Give it a try. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Jan 24, 2018

    At this point, new readers should be warned about Monstress. It's convoluted lore and history can cause a headache for even it's most devoted fans sometimes. But if you have been keeping up with the series, Monstress #13 provides more of what to of what you love- giant monsters, Maika being a badass, and Takeda fantastic art. Read Full Review
