    I appreciate the fact that this team knows the power that's behind them and continuously capitalizes on it. What don't we see when we talk about periods? Bright colors and sunshine. We often see it associated with pain, maturity, growing up, moodiness. Yes, let's all talk about that and add a sarcastic pamphlet to go along with it to spruce it up. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Oct 30, 2018

    Man-Eaters #2 continues to build on the momentum created in the first issue. Chelsea Cain has a sharp-witted script, full of dark humor. Working alongside Cain is Kate Niemczyk with her excellent artwork. Together the pair prove that menstruation can be tough, but we're all in it together. Read Full Review

    Batman's Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Oct 30, 2018

    Man-Eaters #2 continues the clever use of visuals found in its predecessor, while also going into the standard trappings of a good story, mainly character development and a progressing narrative. Cain and Niemczyk are both super-talented storytellers, and they seem in full control of their powers here. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan Nov 1, 2018

    An exceptionally balanced issue that continues to do justice for both the feminist and family messages at its core and the horror tale it continues to weave. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Rachel Acheampong Nov 6, 2018

    This series' feminist sensibilities are overt at times and subtle at others. It's definitely a creative choice, but one that is well-executed. Given the ongoing evolution of our culture's views on feminism, which is largely driven by young people who seek to make critical changes, it's absolutely safe to say that this series will find its audience. With high-minded visuals and an energetic storyline, Man-Eatersis full of promise. It's a comic with claws, one that provokes and intrigues. Blood is certain to spill. It's perfect. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Sophie Buijsen Nov 6, 2018

    The flip-side of using so much real estate on leaflets and other literature, is that there is limited space to move the story forward. In this issue we learn a few new tidbits, but the characters repeat in large strokes what they did in the first issue. I'm looking forward for the story to get going, as I think this comic has all the potential to be a great satirical piece as well as a great story. Read Full Review

    Get to know Maude's family better. She has to hide her menstruation for so many reasons. Maude has already changed so much from issue #1 and has to go through this time alone. We see the fear of the community rising. Big conflict of interest coming soon. Will be interesting to see which parent supports her.

    I'm really enjoying this, the heavy, personal subject matter contrasted with light humour is a treat. It is a fast read though, it just feels so short, it might read through better as a trade.

    Picked this up on a whim even though I didn't really enjoy issue #1. This issue is better, but it still reads like discount Kelly Sue DeConnick, specifically discount BPlanet. Nice artwork!

    Helly my fuzzy ones!

    Here's some random thoughts on the issue

    1) That's just soap.

    2) I seriously think Cain has a tampoon fetish, but at least it's also instructional and young people trying tampoons for the first time might find it relatable?

    3) It's an insult to reduce Frida Kahlo to Postcard icon, also kinda weird that praises an anti-imperialist in Boudica, but then praises Queen Elizabeth II right after.

    4) The whole thing with the girl lying about menstruating by saying she trimmed her pubes with her dad's mustache trimming scissors is actually pretty funny.

    5) Divorced parents, coddling their daughter too much -- understandable, I guess?

    6) If a cat is 8 more
