Monstress, Vol. 3: Haven Reviews

    From Bitch Planet to Lumberjanes to Monstress, the idea in many girl/woman-centric comics in the present time would seem to be depicting a world with as few men as possible. And if you watched any of the recent Kavanaugh SCOTUS hearings, it may have crossed your mind to envision this k...

    So this series continues to be absolutely beautiful to look at. I can't get over the perfect blend of traditional art and manga styles. Its something that seems like it absolutely should not work and yet it does. Its like they know right where to draw the line between too cartoony and ...

    While I agree with other reviews that Haven was often hard to follow... honestly, the quality of craft in every volume of Monstress is so high that I still can't deduct a star. Even when I only understand half of what's going on, I don't really mind, because in this case it just feels ...

    3.5 stars The art is gorgeous, but there just wasn't enough clarity in the plot for me to love-love this volume. Everything that basically everyone says or thinks in Haven is annoyingly cryptic, and/or just when it seems they're about to answer a question, they stop and let the...

    Although I still can?t really tell you about what is going on, the art is so mesmerizing that it does not matter. There is lots of blood and gore and evil monsters - most of them absolutely gorgeous women in breathtaking steampunk art-deco surroundings. Love it. Give me more. ...

    The much forecasted war has arrived. Like with most fantasy yarns, there are so many dang factions to try and keep straight in your head, and everyone is playing an angle. Is there anyone you can trust other than Kippa? The urban dictionary should add an image of the little fox in the ...

    Almost perfect volume 3. Monstress continues to build into a great story and like previous volumes the art work is some of the best out there right now. Maika continues her journey searching for clues about her past and her family and the broken mask fragments. After the island she is ...

    In this third volume we follow Maika and her gang (mainly consisting of Kippa and Master Ren) as they are still trying to get away from the Blood Queens and thus have no choice but to seek refuge in Tear Shed in Pontus Waters. Tear Shed is a harbour town full of refugees. They have an ...

    This is the 3rd volume in the Monstress series. While this graphic novel series continues to have an amazing story and some spectacular world-building, what really sets it apart is the phenomenal illustration throughout. In this volume Maika flees to Pontus to find safety for herse...

    This series is amazing and I still love it dearly, but it's just getting to the point where I often have no idea what is going on and I'm not sure if that's on me or the author [or maybe a bit of both]. And there's a thing in the front of each volume that has character descriptions but...

    In a lot of ways, this third volume of Monstress is better than all the rest. But why? Didn't I love the death of Halfwolf's mother or the island or horrors in the second? Of course I did! But this third volume is all kinds of great reveals and a wonderful new location that I act...

    Probably a 3.5. This series continues to be as confusing as ever. The world is too expansive and things are happening in different parts of the world at the same time, but I can?t keep track of them. Nobody?s intentions are entirely clear and I always feel that there are more qu...

    DNF at 40% The artwork is absolutely breathtaking, but the storyline is all over the place. I've felt since the first volume that there was some serious missing context and had hoped that over the next couple installments more light would be shed on what the hell is going on and why...

    Muy bueno como siempre. Esta vez mientras leía el principio pensaba en que el efecto de la historia no sería tan impactante si no fuera por las ilustraciones espectaculares de Sana Takeda. Son un complemento perfecto para los diálogos que a veces son un tanto difíciles de seguir de...

    honestly the art in this series doesn't make up for the fact that like 99% of the time I have no idea wtf is going on. Not going to continue. ...

    I still don't really follow what's going on in this story. It moves fast and doesn't really connect dots and yet it still draws me in and fascinates me. It is a violent and interesting story who horrible horrors happen and people back stab each other. It does not seem like a very nice ...

    Love it. The art in this volume exceeds even that of the other two beautiful volumes. The story finally gains some ground and the stakes are raised. Just lovely. ...

    Actual review: 3.5 There's something wrong when I love the artwork more than the story. The artwork is absolutely gorgeous! It is the best I've seen in graphic novels. It's intricate, delicate, with a lot of detail. The story, however, lacks a good background for understanding. ...

    I am still really enjoying this series. The art is still beautiful - some of the best that I have ever seen in a graphic novel - and I adore the world-building and principal cast. However, I am starting to feel as though there is something lacking. Now that we are three volumes into th...

    4.5 stars. First 2 volumes where on tip to get 5 stars but quite there. Volume 3 goes slightly over that threshold and gets 5 stars. What I like about volume 3 the most is that we see character development in Zinn. He is no longer shapeless Lovecraftian horror (he is not even horror...

    3.4 This volume had some cool developments in the story and I enjoyed it, though less so than the previous entries. One of my biggest issues after finishing volume 2 was not feeling like I quite understood where the story was going. I feel a bit more on track with that now and so ...
