287 – Monstress: Awakening

"Monstress: Awakening"

Our Best of 2016 megaseries concludes with “Monstress: Awakening” by Marjorie Liu. In this genre-shifting fantasy comic, Maika Halfwolf’s journey for meaning brings her face to face with ancients, gods, and atrocities. We talk about this comic’s take on the fantasy genre, the gorgeously detailed art, and the relationship between Maika and the god inside her. Also, there’s a lot of cleavage. Up top, we talk about the Power Rangers movie! The comic book talk starts around 6:10.
