Eisner-nominated writer Chelsea Cain and Mockingbird artist Kate Niemczyk will be creating Man-Eaters, a new ongoing series from Image Comics.
“Pop culture has a long tradition of manifesting our cultural anxieties as monsters,” said Cain. “What scares us most right now? …Women.”
Man-Eaters tells the tale of a mutation that causes menstruating women to turn into killer wildcats. A twelve-year-old girl will need to save the day from these monsters. The series is described as “Part Cat People, part The Handmaid’s Tale, all pro-feline agenda.”
Niemczyk added: “Only Chelsea would have me draw a tampon wearing a cape.”
Cain and Niemczyk are joined by colorist Rachelle Rosenberg and letterer Joe Caramagna, which reunites the creative team from Mockingbird.
Man-Eaters #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, September 26th.
