    Actual text from me to my best friend after I finished Vol. 3: "THE NASTY MEANIE CATS TOOK KIPPA AND I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS!!!"I am infinitely thrilled that Monstress is back! (I mean, I did just spent two months fretting about a fictional fox-child.) There are so many levels to this book that it's going to take ages to sort out all the loose ends, and I'm thrilled to find out where the creative team is going to take us next because it's never where you expect. Since the quality never ceases to be anything but immaculate, I'm sure we're going to keep seeing amazing progress"and I have no doubt that this story is going to become far more complicated before everything starts to fall into place. I'm really excited to see what this next arc of Monstress has in store for us! Read Full Review

    MONSTRESS #19 reveals a few twists and fleshes out Maika and Kippa. The pacing is good, panels flow well with an air of despair, and there's a few teases set up like chess pieces. The new revelations no doubt will come into play in future issues. Welcome back MONSTRESS! Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Leigh Kade Jan 21, 2019

    Monstress is epic fantasy done right and is probably suitable for teens (and adults) looking for a break from the standard "tights and fights" genre in comics. There's liberal use of profanity, and the blood spilled in this volume is extraordinary, but that shouldn't deter readers from checking it out. Monstress is the real deal, with compelling, fully realized female protagonists, epic confrontations, and endearing characters. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Mark Buckeldee Jan 22, 2019

    Monstress #19 is another visit to the beautifully brutal life of Maika Halfwolf and her companion Kippa. This introduces some new questions and sets up some new challenges, but this issue does feel more like a stepping stone for future great issues rather than a great issue in itself. Read Full Review
