This week was really hard to narrow down to only two picks, but two series have really changed how I view comics:

Monstress #3: From Image "Monstress is all about hidden depths. Not only for the title character — a teenager who literally has a monster living inside her — but for the series itself, which uses the fantasy genre to explore real world issues in a new and fascinating way." Writer Marjorie Liu was inspired by her Chinese grandparents and their experiences during WWII, but more importantly with their tales of how they pieced their lives back together afterwards. Monstress is easily the most gorgeously illustrated series I've ever read and combined with a powerful fantasy epic that beautifully ties into real world issues, Monstress is a must read. [Rated M]


Bitch Planet #7: Comicosity gave this week's issue a perfect 10/10 and I couldn't agree more. This issue marks the beginning a second arc (grab the first volume if you're looking to start) and, as usual, it doesn't hold back any punches. Bitch Planet is an aggressively powerful takedown of misogyny, racism, and a whole lot more all wrapped up into a dystopian prison drama. But what truly takes Bitch Planet to perfection is that it also knows when to pull back. It's not afraid to show silence and let the power of a moment take the lead. Writing at its finest, this issue continues a near perfect series. [Rated M]
