I'm perfectly aware that the quality of the two final issues is far lower than the rest of the series'. But I'm also perfectly aware of the reasons behind the unpassionate and saddened tone of these final issues. It's simply outrageous what the fabolous artists behind this story have been put through by people who simply didn't like this comic. Man-Eaters has been one of the most fun, intelligent and connected with my own life and problems things that I've read in a very long time. By far is the ...more
This was the final volume in the graphic novel series about menstruators who turn into flesh-eating wild cats during their periods. After she had her first period, twelve-year-old Maude was sent away to a pantherism recovery clinic, which reminded me of a gay conversion camps I've read about.
Some girls get locked in containment camps, or sent to weird compounds where they try to pray the panther out of you ... As the whole world knows, menstruation is dangerous. There are a lot of pantherism r

I quite enjoyed this fantasy series set in a world where menstruation is effectively banned because women actually become deadly during their “time of the month”.... in this world they turn into panthers. The dark humor and satire they employed to use this premise to poke at the system we find ourselves living in was so clever and timely.

One more series I’m going to miss now that it is wrapped up!

This volume is weird, which I know isn't saying much, haha, but at least it tried to explain things.. sort of..

The outlandishness of (view spoiler) is rather unexplainable, but I guess you have to let it go with ''it's just a comic' which is something I don't like, but have to let go.

Also they tried to explain the reason why the situation with everything happened... sort of.. Which, at least the writer tried, ins
Warnings: conversion therapy camp allegory, transmisia

I wasn't aware that this would be the finale of this series before going in, so yeah, that hit me like a ton of bricks. But sudden ending aside, it was quite clever in how it reached there. So, the pro-feline group of Maude and her friends and her parents have infiltrated a rehab clinic for girls suspected of Pantherism, and the conditions are bleaker than the brochures promised. Once in, they are investigating the camp, and here's where the s

I really loved this serious up util this issue.

Only the first maybe third of the pages were actually the story and the rest are paper dolls and ads and other things that while funny, didn't contribute to the story.

I don't even mind the over-the-topness of the's how little answers we got, how including transwomen was suddenly attempted to be shoehorned in, and how the answers we did get seemed to conflict with previous issues.

I was hoping for more of the story, more explanations, m

Had to drop this series in the middle of this book because the author insisted on antagonizing readers she disagreed with about the place for trans-women and girls in this series.

It's one thing to say there's something your story just isn't going to address in its limited page count, but it's another thing to use the pages of your story as a call out post for critical tweets and than just no address the criticism at all, and I'm just not willing to support that bullshit anymore.

This made me laugh out loud. So snarky, so clever, and it contains lots of kittens (and corgis.) My only complaint is that some of the faux ads are difficult to read on a e-reader so it may be better to pick up a paper copy than digital.

Oof. Really rushed, confusing, unsatisfying ending to the series. Giving an overall 3 star rating to the full series run. Lots of fun ideas, but kind of just that. Fun ideas with nothing to really hold them together.

I love this weird, feminist presentation (it’s so much more than a comic) so much. Grab your pussy hat, your anti-patriarchy friends, and a warm cup of fuck you to enjoy.

Great finale to this clever, thought-provoking story.
Really disappointing, confusing and rushed final arc.

Great end to the series, but loses a star for excessive padding in the last issue
