Man-Eaters, Vol. 2 Reviews

  • Christy

    This creative team continues to slay with this incredibly feminist book.

  • Susan

    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 werepanthers it is surprisingly relevant and oh so timely. The "inkblot" test using blood on panty liners was absolutely brilliant, shocking and hilarious. This is a very bloody series, both menstrual and from the

    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 werepanthers it is surprisingly relevant and oh so timely. The "inkblot" test using blood on panty liners was absolutely brilliant, shocking and hilarious. This is a very bloody series, both menstrual and from the cat attacks, so if that makes you queasy you might want to give this one a pass, but you would be missing out on a smart, feminist, thought-provoking series.

    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, and is just more world-building materials like games and magazine articles. Still a fun and inventive story—I just want more!

  • Tabrizia Jones

    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 way. I can't wait to read more of this great series!

  • Katie Oswald

    Freaking fantastic!

  • Lauren Archer

    This has quickly become one of my favorite series. So extremely smart.

  • Craig

    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 is more of a handbook, complete with games, profiles, etc., really must have taken some work to pull off. I think I might have admired this more than I really liked it, if that makes any sense.

  • Artemy

    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, and it was slightly more interesting than #4, but it's still filler and I don't care for it. It does nothing to move the main story forward and should in all fairness just be back matter in paperback volumes, or at l

    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, and it was slightly more interesting than #4, but it's still filler and I don't care for it. It does nothing to move the main story forward and should in all fairness just be back matter in paperback volumes, or at least released as separate special issues a la Lazarus Sourcebooks and such. I'm still torn because I want to support Chelsea Cain and the artists involved in the series, and I still really like the general idea of the book, but the way it's structured and told right now kills any momentum from issue to issue and I really want this series to be complete before reading it. I guess I have some time to think what I want to do with it before the next issue is released in June.

  • Kyra Leseberg (Roots & Reads)

    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 with volume one).

    The strength of this series is the team work of its creators, the plot is really enhanced by the graphic design.

  • Alex Sarll

    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 was premature to poise the story after three issues for a whole issue of an in-universe publication? Well, they've decided to increase the fucking thing. Which may be frustrating, but you can't deny it's on-brand.
