The B&N Podcast


Jul 10, 2019

Many readers know Marjorie Liu from her New York Times bestsellers in the Hunter Kiss series and the Dirk and Steele urban fantasy series, but she is also a prolific and masterful writer of comics, including X-23, Black Widow and the Star Wars Han Solo miniseries.  But it's with Monstress, created in partnership with the artist Sana Takaeda, that Liu has brought her readers into an extraordinary new world, a massive and lush epic fantasy to rival anything in prose, covering topics like slavery, war and race, set against a background of monsters and mythology.  She joins B&N's James Killen in this episode to talk about her award-winning comic and the obsessions behind her magnificent imagination.
