    In all, I enjoy the structure and appeal the Man Eaters series has allowed readers to experience. The series brought a kind of psychological intensity that feels both realistic and scary. I imagine that future issues would be able to bring forth new ways in which conversations about periods have become a political statement. Wishing Maude great feminist waves and “Panther” surprises.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 11, 2019

    What Cain has done throughout this series HAS been impressive. The scattered complexity of the story is given a retrospective look. Thanks to a Mitternique-designed organizational chart for Estro Corp. at mid-issue that shows-off just how much thematic ground Cains covered in 11 issues. The series concludes with one more non-narrative look at the world of Man-Eaters which will close out the title. With the narrative already closed, one more issue from the world of Man-Eaters is likely to feel a bit strange. But itll be nice to visit Cains world one last time before it gets compressed into a trade paperback. Read Full Review

    Hello fuzzy ones

    I just realized something, Cain has been scripting these ad-inserts because she wanted to sort-of copy Jonathan Hickman's trademark charts as a way to provide extra bits of tangential world-building to her story, but her story is so thin, it hurts more than it helps, because they take so many pages from the comic for this and there's barely any story left.

    The art took a nosedive, which used to be the only saving grace...

    Also, this issue is pretty vacuous.

    And of course the main character has the "Ask me about my feminist agenda", tho by now, we know Chelsea Cain's agenda is White Feminism with a side of TERFness.

    This is a series that started strong, but by the end has descended into making me cringe on almost every page. I only made it this far into the series because I knew it was ending and was hoping it might live up to the first couple of issues. It didn’t.
