Comments: A young woman is training with the House of Butcher she is from the House of Slaughter. Louis Buocher is watching over her.
This book changes to prose style as it informs you all about monsters. The artwork accompanying the writing has an old-style feel that looks amazing. It switches back and forth for the style. You do learn a fair amount about each type of monster.
The young woman learns that reading a book does help one to learn. She is there to learn how to kill monsters. Her trainer Lous is strange yet what he does and says does make sense. Her name is Maxine.
Maxine may not think she is learning a lot yet it is easy to see she is. What she learns may not be about killing monsters but also about monsters and people. Lous is a rough guy and not very polite yet he does know what a person needs to know.
The prose part of this book does drag on some. The parts done as a regular comic with Lous and Maxine have some nice interaction between them. Both are ones you will feel compelled to learn more about.
One new thing about the monsters is revealed here.
