    This graphic novel seems like it is an introductory edition to a 'Monster Hunter' series, featuring young, orphaned, bratty-with-something-to-prove Scarlett, her underappreciated butler, unexplained monsters roaming the world, and an uninspired, cookie cutter nemesis. The premise? S...

    Scartlett Heart sounded quite awesome, since girls battling monsters is always needed. There're not so many comics like this, so I was intrigued, but sadly so let down. Scarlett is an orphaned girl and her parents were known monster hunters and thus she wants to follow in their footste...

    I'd read more of this book if it became a series since I liked the storyline even though I'd like further development and I'm always a fan of a yarn featuring a kick-ass female protagonist. Although Scarlett Hart misses her famed monster-hunting parents, she is clearly loved by her but...

    I'm so so sorry, but as much as the cover and write up had me looking forward to this book I simply could not deal. As a somewhat new fan of graphic novels, I may be far more picky than those who have been into this genre/style for awhile now. Not only do I require a good storyline to ...
