    Satire is a challenging tone to maintain issue after issue. But with these kinds of one-off parody “magazines” and products, Cain and her team are sure to keep this fresh and chillingly funny. Read Full Review

    It's not what I expected, but it's still a really impressive achievement. Read Full Review

    Sure, this issue does essentially step away from Maude and company, which might be a little frustrating after the cliffhanger of last issue, but the larger world of Man-Eaters is all the better for it. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 26, 2018

    The comic will stand out as one of the more interesting and daring releases of the year, something you might find on Free Comic Book Day. But, as far as an entry point for new readers, it doesn't quite work. As a new reader, I'm no more interested or understand the world than before I read the comic. This one gets an A for the effort and execution but not sure it hits the bullseye as far as its goal. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed the issue for what it was and I'll admit the satire gave me a few chuckles, but I hope this is a one off.

    It's starting to feel that they don't have a lot to show here (aside from their transphobia, of course)

    A genuine disappointment to crack open this issue after last month's conclusion and see not a continuation of story but.... a parody magazine. Making the same jokes we've gotten and already gotten tired of after the first 3 issues.

    It's a real shame, because I wanted to like this series and I want to support female creators, but this book just isn't working for me. And running with a parody magazine for just the FOURTH issue, before we have a real, working narrative feels a combination of misguided, arrogant, or desperate.

    WICKED AND DIVINE did a parody magazine about, oh, 27 issues into the series run, and it was illustrated by Kevin Wada of all people. I don't see why a comic that is only 4 issues in needs an entry p more

    This issue is not even a comic, it's just bad over-the-top anvil-dropping satire that actually wants to be taken prima facie because its playing it straight.

    Like, I had started to like this comic in an ironic way, but boy... this issue is just... wow...
