The Cat’s Out Of The Bag: Man-Eaters By Cain, Niemczyk & Rosenberg

by Oliver MacNamee

Eisner-nominated and New York Times bestselling thriller writer Chelsea Cain reunites with her Mockingbird artistic collaborators, Kate Niemczyk, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg and letterer Joe Caramagna, along with Lia Miternique and Stella Greenvoss, for a new ongoing series, Man-Eaters, from Image comics this September.

“Pop culture has a long tradition of manifesting our cultural anxieties as monsters,” said Cain. “What scares us most right now? …Women.”

A mutation in Toxoplasmosis causes menstruating women to turn into ferocious killer wildcats—easily provoked and extremely dangerous. As panic spreads and paranoia takes root, the fate of the world rides on the shoulders of one twelve-year-old girl. Part Cat People, part The Handmaid’s Tale, all pro-feline agenda.

Man-Eaters is produced for Image comics by Ministry of Trouble (a production company founded by Cain and Miternique in 2017) and will be on comic book store shelves September 26th, 2018.
