Monsters & Girls: Amelia



So sometimes the problem with having piles of unread comics and zines around is that I'll pick up one like this, discover it's chapter five, read it and have almost no idea what was going on. There's are some nosferatu guys, and a girl has a nightmare, and what?


Except this time I discovered that I actually owned chapter's 1-4 as well! They were just in a totally different comic that didn't have the name on the cover. I'm kind of surprised I found it at all!

So does it make more sense now that I've been able to read the story from the beginning? Yes! Definitely! Chapter five picks up immediately after the previous one, and now I have some idea of who the characters are and what they're doing.

There are three magical artifacts, and one of them belonged to Amelia's mom. It seems like it killed her (the mom) somehow, and now Amelia is trying to get the other objects to "make things right", and to discover the secrets behind them.

Neither the art or the story really appealed to me that much. The style of the art makes all of the characters look weirdly unattractive, though I'm not sure if that is the artist's intention or not. The story is just kind of...generic I guess? Plus there's a sex scene that's just kind of gross (this is at least partially on purpose). I did enjoy the fact that one of the characters was a nosferatu instead of just a vampire. I thought that was pretty funny.
