MONSTRESS takes comics industry by storm

monstressNew York Times bestselling author Marjorie Liu (Astonishing X-Men, Black Widow) and artist Sana Takeda (X-23, Ms. Marvel) launched their new fantasy adventure to early critical acclaim and have taken the comics industry by storm. Image Comics is pleased to announce that issue #1 is being fast-tracked for a second printing to keep up with the high customer demand.

Vox.com calls MONSTRESS, “a comic book with mud in its blood, unafraid to be a swirling epic as well as a ghastly dark fantasy” while The Hollywood Reporter says it “is a first issue that includes not only girls and giant monsters, but also world-building on a scale rare in mainstream comics.” Kirkus Reviews declares it, “filled to the brim with awesome.”

Steampunk meets Kaiju in MONSTRESS, an original fantasy epic for mature readers. As young Maika risks everything to control her psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, placing her in the center of a devastating war between human and otherworldly forces.

“Watching a series like Monstress come to life is one of the best parts of publishing comics,” said Eric Stephenson, Publisher at Image Comics. “Marjorie and Sana are both amazing talents and everyone here is so excited that all their hard work is resulting such a warm response from fans around the world.”

MONSTRESS #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.

MONSTRESS #1, 2nd printing (Diamond Code OCT158169) and MONSTRESS #2 (Diamond Code OCT150498) will arrive in stores on Wednesday, December 9th. Final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, November 16th.

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
