    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 5, 2019

    Cain and company continue to push the medium in a direction far more novel than anything else in comics today. With the plot arc playing out the way it is, theres clearly some kind of revolution coming. Itll be interesting to see if the series can maintain its edge if that happens. So much of ManEaters appeal lies in the power of the matriarchal dystopia. When its openly challenged, the power dynamic in the series is going to force the series in a different direction. I think fans of the series are in good hands. Cain and company havent given any indication of the series being anything other than deeply entertaining.   Read Full Review

The series is fun, and it feels like a wonderful journey every time I pick it up to read. Granted, this installation I was not much of a fan of the artwork. I was pleased to see Maude's reworking, but it felt like some of the risks that were taken in previous issues were not taken this time. On one hand, not everything has to be fun and playful, but I didn't feel like the characters met to the standard of the expressions the writing is giving. Read Full Review
