    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 24, 2019

    Theres a lot going on in the eighth issue of ManEaters. In addition to developing the world of the series, its a brilliantly non-traditional, little one-shot that tells the story of a couple of characters. Jennifer and Mandy serve as character archetypes in the games. At issues end, a pair of articles tell the stories of the characters behind these archetypes. The vastly different outcomes of two girls looking to rebel serves to increase the tension of the middle school girl at the center of the series. Now that a little bit more about the world in which the characters live, the danger shes falling into is given that much more depth. Read Full Review

    Hello fuzzy ones...

    This is not a comic? It's literally not a comic. It's basically a graphic design portfolio. Just like Man-Eaters #4, Man-Eaters #8 is just an exercise in design. As such, it fails as a comic.

    I've pointed out that one of the biggest problems with Cain is that there's barely any story in her comics, but this is excessive: if you were to combine Man-Eaters 1 thru 8 into a single paperback, you'd only have about 5 issues worth of story, and I'm being generous.

    They think it is cute that they do these splash pages to advertise fictional products to give a sort of augmented reality feel to the comic, but it's also a great way to pad the comic and leave you with 14 pages of story in a 22-pg co more
