    Monstress continues to be on a hot streak and while last issue flipped the story on its head by introducing Maika's father into the mix, #22 continues to turn the story in new directions that appear to be on a rapidly converging path. Read Full Review

    Monstress #22 continues this books best arc yet, which is saying a lot. Simply put, this is one of the best comics on the stands and an all-time classic, and issues like this that read so beautifully while pushing ahead the plot are the reason why. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Elizabeth Fazzio May 23, 2019

    The Doctor clearly knows far more than he's letting on. The question is, how much, and what does he intend to do with that knowledge? With two more issues in this arc, we're either headed for a crucial event or an enormous cliffhanger. Maika, Kippa, Ren, and Corvin are likely to be reunited soon and it will be interesting to see if Maika follows through on her promise to leave the Doctor's stronghold once she has her friends back or if something happens to prevent that. Will we learn the extent of Ren's double agency? What is the importance of Kippa's gift in all of this? And possibly the biggest question of all is what exactly is Tuya's part in this web of intrigue, and how and why does the Doctor know so much about it? Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vanessa Boney May 27, 2019

    With lazy, inconsistent art, and a lot of dialogue with no real payoff, "Monstress" #22 falls short of satisfactory. Read Full Review
