Reviews

"Something entirely different" -Hypable
"Feels like a battle cry." --Vox.com
"This is stuff that demands to be explained and dares you to turn the page." -The Rainbow Hub
"Intricate and detailed, with a definite manga influence, Takeda's artwork creates a lush and dangerous world for Liu's equally dangerous characters. The work is infused with feminist themes; almost all of the characters are strong--and deadly--women." --School Library Journal
"World-building on a scale rare in mainstream comics." --The Hollywood Reporter
"Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda take eastern and western comics storytelling traditions and styles, and create something wholly their own and remarkable: a beautifully told story of magic and fear, inhumanity and exploitation, of what it means to be human and the monsters we all carry inside us. Also, some of the best cats in comics. A delight." -Neil Gaiman
