    I actually read the four individual issues since the collected volume isn?t out yet. Regardless: SO GOOD. Super excited to see where Chelsea Cain takes this next. ...

    I loved Mockingbird, and I found this intriguing, but I didn't feel like I got a lot out of this volume other than the premise. I'll pick up the next volume, but I didn't feel like this was a story in itself. ...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from Edelweiss actual rating: 3.5 AKA I really wish this was better. Look ...I like the general idea of this and even SOME of the execution, but it's basically a watered down YA version of Bitch Planet and it really shows. I can see how that mi...

    Man-Eaters is like Bitch Planet, junior edition. One of the girls suspected of being infected has a Bitch Planet poster on her bedroom wall. I squealed with delight. Also, I guess I'm just a sucker for books about girls gaining power due to a mutation brought out when they start their ...

    3 1/2 stars. Girls turn into murderous panthers as a result of their period and terrified of this possibility, society/men have taken some precautions. First, hormones have been placed in the water to eradicate periods and men constantly live in fear of their significant others and fem...

    I snagged this because I saw 'girls turn in to monstrous cats and eat people' and was like 'sign me the hell up' but....it's so heavy handed. Even for concepts I like! Using advertisements and articles and stuff to help world build! I love that! But other stuff just felt l...

    3.5 really Man Eaters has an amusing concept (girls turn into angry, violent cats when their periods start), but the first volume is light on plot progression. It feels more like world-building than a story arc. That being said, it?s promising. It?s essentially an inversion of tox...

    I discovered a surprising love of graphic novels a couple years ago thanks to the Litsy community. There are so many books (genres, authors, publishers, etc.) that I can thank Litsy for bringing into my life. It started with the Saga series by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples and ...

    Ugh, this was beyond stupid. It's worse when they try to be political/edgy. The nail in the coffin was the faux magazine near the end of the volume. ...

    Fantastically funny and real without being too real. Oh my, why did I put off reading this. Currently in the room of my 13 year old daughter, this is required reading for girls of a certain age, I would think. Polished, slick, relevant, funny, smart. ...

    I actually really enjoyed this one. It tackled the stereotypes that young girls face and still face to this day about puberty. It portrays a clear message while making it an enjoyable and funny graphic novel. The artwork was also very good, very intricate in its horror details. I also ...

    This seems to be a title that is either LOVED or HATED. I was kind of eager to see where I would fit in. I liked Mockingbird a lot from Chelsea Cain, so I was pretty excited to try this. It starts off with learning that girls, once they get their period, can transform into huge cat...

    I never owned a cat growing up, so my views toward the feline species is through funny cat videos or their occasionally creepy presence as depicted in Stephen King?s Pet Sematary. Following their acclaimed but short-lived run on Mockingbird, creators Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk ex...

    More like 2.5 stars due to frustration with the formatting. Alan Moore's Watchmen is the earliest comic I can recall that used end matter text pieces to supplement the story and world-building. This book does the same, but allows the end matter to overwhelm and suffocate the story. Ind...

    3.5 stars Fuuuuuck. I wanted to love this. Issue 1? Great. Issue 2 & 3? Good. Issue 4? Ugh. Listen I love my weird in-universe propaganda. Most of the time they are original and satirical AF. Loved them at the end of every issue here, loved them for example in Bitch Planet. But ...

    After the brilliant but short-lived run on Marvel's Mockingbird I was ready to read anything else by Chelsea Cain, so I was really happy when Man-Eaters by her and Kate Niemczyk was announced. This is a comic with an absolutely bonkers premise ? what if a mutated version of Toxoplasm...

    WELP IM OBSESSED NOW. This book is so clever and beautiful everyone needs to read this. This is the story I didn?t know I needed. You might be a put off by the idea that young girls are turning into murderous panthers but please read it because you need this book. ...

    Great graphics, colouring & story, alternating with pictures and "advertisements". Full of criticism on the patriarchy, funny, lush and entirely unique. Recommended for cat lovers and readers who like their graphic novels with a twist. ...

    I normally don?t bother with this but I?m giving an NSFW warning for this review: it contains strong language, crude humor, political incorrectness and 2 Filthy Frank gifs... in other words I hated this book but writing the review was fun. This kind of shit?s why the unfortuna...

    Oh gosh, did I miss Chelsea Cain's humor. MOCKINGBIRD was my favorite (cancelled) run of Marvel comics so I was crazy excited to get my hands on this volume! Without the restrictions of capes, Cain creates a unique story with all the funny background details evident in her earlier w...

    Exceptional work, really fun and rich, full of feminist statements. Loved the use of side elements such as propaganda to explain the environment in which these girls are growing up. The constant correlation to our reality is scary. ...

    I didn't love this but, I'm sure, if I was about 10-ish years younger, I probably would have. The art is cute and the little adverts are like junior Bitch Planet adverts. Honestly, I feel like this could have been marketed as a YA version of Bitch Planet. It just doesn't seem all th...
