The Monster Lands can be a dangerous place to travel through, and that’s not just due to all the monsters under the queen’s employ. Scammers, pirates, necromancers, and annoying buff dudes that constantly want to fight are all likely to accost you. It’s not a great world. That doesn’t mean it can’t be fixed up a bit, though. Othera spends her days riding through the Monster Lands, punishing those who choose the path of being an asshole. It’s an honorable profession, but is it worth it?

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.
