Monster Lands is a fantasy/dramedy story that focuses on the axe-wielding, monster-riding adventurer Othera as she battles against the tyranny of the evil queen Eren Lorry! It’s largely a character-driven story, written as sort of a deconstruction of fantasy tropes while also being a love letter to the genre. The webcomic looks at characters who fall under oft-seen fantasy tropes and explores how they got to be that way. On a related note, Monster Lands also explores how people continually dig deeper and deeper holes for themselves in order to avoid changing or facing consequences, both equally terrifying prospects that could frighten anyone. It is made of numerous short, standalone chapters which introduce characters and elements that form the base for the longer, more plot-intensive chapters.
