Scarlett Hart Monster Hunter by Marcus Sedwick (graphic novel)

Scarlett is the orphaned daughter of two legendary monster hunters. With the help of her faithful family retainers, she scours the city for monsters... but her archrival Count Stankovic is determined to stop her!

Fast-moving action and adventure, fancy gadgets and stunts, lots of monsters, and clever chat. The artwork is fun and not (very) gory, and the plot never stops.

There is clearly room for sequels, but the story stands alone nicely. Highly recommended for ages 10 to adult.

"Steampunk-y Doctor-Whoish Adventure"

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true. --R. Silvern
