For such a terrible year, we got a lot of good things out of 2017. Good movies, good TV and one of the best years for games we've seen this generation. As far as things I've sat in front of and consumed, I can't really complain about 2017 at all.
Monstress is a comic-book series where incredibly messed-up things happen. We're talking child slavery, lynchings and cannibalism. Thank the poets it's also got a magical, two-tailed talking cat named Master Ren.
Everybody has a little bit of caged, writhing terribleness inside of them, frightening for what it can reveal about oneself. Monstress makes that metaphor literal and shows the struggle of one young woman trying to make her demons serve her angels.
