March 2024 Graphic Novel of the Month

Inspired by Korean folklore, Robin Ha’s The Fox Maiden is a beautiful, potent graphic novel that sees a young woman find freedom from convention and a curse through compassion and love.  

While training at the martial arts school run by her father, commander of the Royal Legion, Kai is mocked by male students. “Why don’t you just go and play with other girls?” asks one, while another incites Kai to retaliate when he claims Kai’s grandmother was a Gumiho, the nine-tailed fox demon of legend.  

When Kai defends her family from an attack, her skills as a warrior are blatantly clear. Then, as a dark and deadly truth about her identity comes to light, she’s forced to grapple with her fate and the transformation that befalls her when the moon is full.  

Haunting and arresting, with fine character development and perfectly-constructed panels  — the use of colour is very special as they span explosive battles and scenes of introspection — The Fox Maidens is a powerful story of love and forging your own fate. Rich with historic details that evoke 16th-century Korea, it’s also sweepingly timeless and emotionally resonant.
