Reviews: Monsterkind

Excellent Start, but Suffers from Poor Pacing

Monsterkind looked really interesting and promising at first, but the pacing started to suffer after Wallace's first day of rounds and hasn't really recovered. Things seem to have been slowed down immensely, with many pages feeling like they could easily be condensed. There's also a lot of effort being put into setting up potential love triangles, when the plot isn't moving forward much at all. Over ten pages are dedicated to walking into a store, finding out the person they came to see isn't there, and getting Kip to talk to someone else, which only starts on the twelfth page or so. Most of the padding is awkward ship tease between Kip, Briggs, and Wallace. Monsterind has a really interesting premise, but it feels like it's already been buried by shipping.
