Image Comics Give Retailers a Killer Deal on Hugo Award-Winning Monstress Vol 3: Haven

Monstress Vol 3: Haven by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda won the 2019 Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story, presented at WorldCon in Dublin this week. As a result, Image Comics has rushed a special deal for retailers who may want to catch up on stocking the volume, given new award-driven interest.

For the following week-and-a-bit, retailers who order the first two volumes of Monstress, Volume 1: Awakening and Volume 2: The Blood, will get a free copy of Monstress Vol 3: Haven with every copy of Vol 1 and 2 they order.

It’s a good excuse to get copies of the new volume in – but also keep up copies of the previous volumes as well.

And it’s all ahead of the release of Monstress Vol 4: The Chosen at the end of September. With new stock coming in for October…

Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900’s Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steampunk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both. Entertainment Weekly praised MONSTRESS as “one of Image Comics’ most imaginative and daring new series” and dubbed it the “Best New Original Series” in their year-end “Best Comics of 2015” list.
