The exclusive, signed edition of the “feminist teen graphic novel” Man-Eaters Volume 1 will be coming to bookstores in celebration of Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 27, 2019.
Eisner-nominated and New York Times bestselling thriller writer Chelsea Cain, artist Kate Niemczyk, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, and letterer Joe Caramagna “of the controversial and buzzed about comic Mockingbird team” with Lia Miternique and Stella Greenvoss will launch “a hot new feminist sci-fi series for teens” this March with Man-Eaters Volume 1.
In celebration of the new series, “an additional, exclusive, signed edition will be available for Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 27.”
According to the press release:
On the heels of Marvel’s unexpected cancellation of Cain’s The Vision series, support of Man-Eaters went viral across the social media sphere with signal blasts from mainstream media covering the Marvel slight and ironic timing with her new series, Man-Eaters. The hot new title can best be described as Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine DeLandro’s Bitch Planet meets Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
In Man-Eaters, which I have read, you are introduced to a world where a mutation in Toxoplasmosis causes menstruating women to turn into “ferocious killer wildcats—easily provoked and extremely dangerous.”
Of course, panic spreads and paranoia takes root. Also, it turns out the fate of the world rides on the shoulders of a 12-year-old girl.
Part Cat People, part Naomi Alderman’s The Power, Man-Eaters has an all pro-feline agenda.
Man-Eaters, Volume 1 (from Image Comics) will be available in comic book stores on February 27, 2019, and bookstores on March 5, 2017.
It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, IndieBound, and Indigo. Fans can also subscribe to receive the series delivered by mail within the domestic U.S. on Image Direct.
For digital readers, Man-Eaters is available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
