Review: Monstress

John Gates recommended Monstress to me, and the first volume was $3.99, so I picked it up on my Kindle Fire HD. The art, by Sana Takeda is great: a mix of traditional Asian and Western influences, along with the typical Cthulhu-mythos tentacled stuff.

Unfortunately, the story doesn't quite fly. I'm can't quite put my finger on it, but my guess is that the exposition feels like the author dragged it out and split it into pieces deliberately so as to not run out of new ideas, which caused the plot to drag.

I don't think I'll bother reading the other books in the series. Fables is much better.
