    Yup, I love it. And hate parts? And I?m going to read the rest as it comes out in volumes. Slowly. Cats. Preteen girls. Teens who turn into cats. Anti strong women propaganda being ridiculed. No long term population strategy. What?s not to love? Well. I noted the first volum...

    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 ...

    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 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...... Another full issue of propaganda at the end? ? Also maybe lost on the tiny bit of plot? W...

    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 ...

    Still rich with feminist snark and satire, but light on story. I wish this weren?t cancelled. ...

    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 like the idea of this book, but the execution is moving way too slowly for my tastes. So the basic concept is that, due to a mutation in a common parasite, the onset of menstruation causes women to change into large, predatory cats. Our young protagonist, Maude, has been avoiding ...

    I didn't like this volume nearly as much as the first. For one thing, there was barely any story here. We get a tiny bit about Maude talking with her parents and hints that her mother allows herself to transform into a large cat, but we don't know why or anything else at all really...

    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...

    Man oh man oh MAN do I adore this comic! It's so freaking good. Really weird and odd and the art and style is just out of this world. Super into this. I also wish it were true. I wish I could turn into a panther every time I had my period..... ...

    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 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. ...

    I LOVE this series so far, and I love the twist that was taken at the end of the story part of this volume. I do think it is probably better to read this in volumes rather than individual issues, given the fact that so far the 4th and 8th issue (4th chapter in each volume) have been ...

    This was a good edition to the series. The strengths of the first book like the world building, characters, social commentary, and good premise carried over to this volume. Unfortunately the weaknesses also carried over. They did another of the magazine portions, except this time it wa...
