    I really liked the first volume, which showed a lot of promise. But this one is just weird and it really doesn't do much to advance the story at all. Still, lots of tongue-in-cheek humor here about adolescence and puberty and the differences between boys and girls, and issue #8, which ...

    As is often the case with comic book issues, the story feels like it's being doled out too slowly. This story arc ends in a cliffhanger, but I'm hopeful that the next issue and/or TP is the big "reveal," and then we can move on to some serious cat resistance :p ...

    The concept of this book is so amazing and the plot ? when the author bothers to employ one amid all the world building ? has great potential. I totally recommend this for all feminists who enjoy graphic novels or comics, but, please, more action and fewer advertisements set in a w...

    While I didn't enjoy this issue as much as I liked the first, I'm interested to see where this series goes. We follow the mystery of an accused murderer and get more propaganda. Not a while lot actually happens in this issue, but we get some more world building and interesting char...

    Still really loving this series. The world-building is creative and clever and the plot seems interesting. My only wish is that the story would advance some. It?s very slow-moving, and part of that is that the 4th issue of this volume (and volume 1) doesn?t have any plot at all, an...

    I really enjoy this comic series but I wish there was more story and far less paraphernalia from the world the characters live in. After reading the first volume I thought they were just trying to set up the world that the story took place in but I have now realized that this the style...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from Edelweiss Once again, I just really wish this was better than it actually is. I like the general idea, the art and layouts are great, and the in-universe propaganda is spot on ...but the whole plot still seems both incredibly convoluted and a...

    Another full issue of propaganda at the end? ? Also maybe lost on the tiny bit of plot? Worth the read for the existentialist talk in the girl's bathroom, though. Will read Volume 3 but...... ...

    Maude and a group of girls secretly drink estrogen-free water and one of their friends disappears. I like this series, but I'd like a bit more plot. I enjoyed seeing how Maude and her friends started their own quiet rebellion against being forced to drink estrogen-free water (becaus...

    I don?t know how they?ll continue to develop this little science fiction graphic novel that subversively talks about the policing of women and their bodies, while on the surface dealing with a woman-only outbreak of pantherism, but I can?t wait to find out. Recommend if you li...

    The black humour, the savage yet wry satire of gendered marketing and unfair dress codes, the amazing use of mixed-media elements, are if anything even more pronounced than in the first volume of the teen werepanther series. But when it comes to the widespread sentiment that maybe it w...

    While the plot doesn't really progress in this second volume, it's still super entertaining! I love the design/layout and the propaganda is amazing. The last issue in this volume is a collection of satirical propaganda that has nothing to do with the plot of the story (as was the case ...

    Warnings: mentions of violent maulings by wild animals, blood, gun violence Man-Eaters continues to highlight the impossible standards that girls are subjected to, as well as society's obsession with protecting masculinity. In this volume, one of Maude's classmates has turned into a...

    Thank you +Edelweiss and Image Comics for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. I'm still amazed at how wonderful and creative this new series is. It just hits also the stereotypes that girls and women have to face dealing with their bodies but in a humorous and serious...

    I love the story, love the humor, but I wish there was more story than there is, most pages of this volume were fake adverts, made up card games, and all manner of other stuff. I paid for a comic, I?d like the comic to be a comic. Literally over half of this is crap that the writers ...

    These past two volumes can't follow up on issues, or cliff hangers, or tell a coherent story to save their life. It's just dressed up with random nonsense ads, accessories, gimmicks and geek culture references, then strung along on a some semblance of a plotline, and said plotline is r...

    This series is so clever and tongue in cheek I can't help but love it! The epistolary style is super interesting and really adds to the whole package. This volume includes paper dolls, a card game and more. For a story about girls starting their periods and transforming into man-eating...

    A second trade volume in this inventive series, where a female population is being treated with hormones in their water so they don't become menstrual ? at which point they might turn into werepanthers and gobble people up. Yes, this won't mean much if you haven't jumped on board at ...

    The plot gets interesting... more were-panthers, please! The people who get so worked up about fluoride in the water supply probably wouldn't say a peep about putting estrogen & progesterone in the water supply, if the result was to control the reproductive choices of women. ...

    I'm getting the feeling that this series will be a much better read as a whole rather than waiting for each issue month to month. The storytelling gets weirder, less straightforward. Issue #8 is once again an in-universe piece of propaganda with ads, games, magazine pieces and such, an...

    I like what this graphic novel is doing and I want to know what's going to happen next, but it needs to get their faster. I've finished 2 volumes or 8 issues and barely anything has happened. The pace needs to be picked up. It makes it more aggravating because in both volumes the 4th i...

    I was disappointed by the limited plot development in this volume. I appreciated how this volume mentioned the existence of trans people with periods, but I was still disappointed with the representation. For example, the term "transgendered" was used, which is outdated and offensive. ...
