Monstress: Awakening by Marjorie Liu, art by Sana Takeda, 192 pages

The humans and the animalistic Arcanics have been at war for years, and Maika Halfwolf is a teenage survivor of the conflict, struggling to figure out who, and what, she is. She looks human but knows she's Arcanic, and a waking monster inside her has drawn the attention of the witch-nuns who lead the humans, making her both hunter and hunted. It's a perplexing and fascinating story, and Takeda's art is beyond gorgeous. I'm more than a bit confused by what's going on, though I hope it clarifies a bit in coming volumes.
