The richly imagined world of
MONSTRESS is an alternate matriarchal 1900s Asia, with an art deco-infused
steampunk aesthetic that's brimming with arcane dangers. 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.

Creator/writer Marjorie Liu (who made
history as the first woman to win an Eisner Award for Best Writer) and
creator/artist Sana Takeda present a deluxe, oversized hardcover edition of
their beloved breakout comic in MONSTRESS BOOK ONE. Collecting the first 18
issues of the New York Times bestselling series, this massive edition features a
striking new cover, as well as special extras, including never-before-seen
sketches, script pages, and more for over 500 pages of award-winning content.
