In his hird volume we follow Maika and her gang ( mainly consisting of Kippa and Master Ren) as they are actuall attempting to get way from the Blood Queens and thus have no choice but to seek refuge in Tear Shed in Pontus Waters.

Subsequently, I 've found myself disappointed in graphic novels with a high fantasy story, and it mus be that it 's a format that does n't work for me.

There is just something lacking in reading a high fantasy story in this format.

3.5 starsThe art is gorgeous, but there just was n't enough clarity in the plot for me to love-love this volume.

Kind of like waking dreams?

<--because it was somewhat confusing as to whether or not they were coming from Tuya or just Maika's subconscious.I guess the point is that the reader can decide, but with everything else being all woo-woo-mystical, I didn't appreciate having one more thing that wasn't concrete.

The tones differ; Bitch Planet ( for adult women) is snarky and funny and profane; Lumberjanes ( for young readers) is funny and sweet, and Monstress is intense and violent and lovely, ranging from cute fox girls and talking kitties to steely murderous women who all look like models ( and when DO they take the time to do their hair to look like that?!).

Thes three are All Girl Power, All he Time; Bitch Planet is connected to current political landscape; Lumberjanes is, ell, set in a summer camp, and Monstress is a complex fantasy set in medieval landscape.

I actuall do n't really follow what 's going on in his tory.

It is a violent and interesting story who horrible horrors happen and people back stab each other.

We glimpse a little bit of the history of the Blood in Maika and the thing inside her.
