    On Comics Ground - Elizabeth Fazzio Feb 25, 2019

    Though this issue erred on the side of being a 'space filler' issue"one which worked as a stepping stone to get us to where we need to be in order for the next big thing to happen"it still threw a few curve balls. As always, the writing and art were stellar, so even though we were mostly witness to a setup for something I can only anticipate will be much, much bigger, there was no lacking in quality. So on we go to next month, when it's likely there will be a whole lot of action all at once. Read Full Review

    Monstress is probably well suited to older teens, and highly recommended for readers that want an escape from the mundanity of this world. Read Full Review

    On the outset, it can seem as if "Monstress" is a pretty story about pretty people doing pretty things, but there is so much more there. It's one of those comics that relies heavily on the dynamics of the character interactions. It also begs the reader to become immersed in the world it creates. Read Full Review

    All in all MONSTRESS #20 is weaker than other issues in the series, but I'm sure that's only because I'm reading it without the benefit of the six-issue arc in which it will eventually find itself. Read Full Review

    Monstress issue 20 gives some new reveals and has you rooting for Kippa to keep going forward. It's not an issue anyone can jump in because of how lost you'll feel, but I still feel like a new reader will find enough here to convince them to start from the beginning. Monstress is a fantastic dark fantasy with some amazing imagination put into it that I believe everyone should be reading or at the very least, give a shot. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Gwen Dylan Stacy Feb 22, 2019

    I really can't tell you how much I loved this issue and all its hybrid mix of manga and comics. For me, everything culminates to find a solid 3.5 out of 5 stars for a title that I'll continue to anticipate with bated breath. Read Full Review
