Monstress Book One

Within it, a teenage girl struggles to overcome the trauma of war, a task that’s made all the more difficult by her mysterious psychic link to an eldritch monster of tremendous power—a connection that will transform them both and place them in the crosshairs of both human and otherworldly powers.

Monstress #19 (Diamond Code NOV180165) will be available on Wednesday, January 23rd. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, December 17th.

Monstress Book One hardcover (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1232-6) will be available in comic shops on Wednesday, July 3rd and in bookstores on Tuesday, July 9th.
