    But Why Tho?

    I love this issue of Monstress. The art is, as it always is, fantastic, but it’s at a new level this issue as we go into a completely new world one that looks beautiful but has horrible purpose. It’s that purpose—once Zinn realizes and reveals it—that makes this issue feel urgent in a way that the series hasn’t for a bit. The threat facing Maika as well as Ren and Kippa, is almost tangible on these pages – even more so that the tables have been turned with Zinn being corporeal and Maika the voice in his head, as it were. We also start digging into Zinn’s memories which is fascinating and helps make this part of the story all the more interesting. There is a lot going on here, but it’s all so good.
