    Today, Image Comics announced a new ongoing series called “Man-Eaters” to be released in September. It is set to reunite the creative team that brought about Marvel’s Eisner nominated series, “Mockingbird,” consisting of the New York Times bestselling thriller writer, Chelsea Cain, artist Kate Niemczyk, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, and letterer Joe Caramagna. The team will also be joined by Lia Miternique and Stella Greenvoss. This will be Cain’s return to comics, following the end of “Mockingbird” in 2016.

    It will follow the story of a twelve-year-old girl who is surrounded by panic and paranoia after a mutation of Toxoplasmosis starts causing menstruating women to turn into “ferocious killer wildcats” that are “easily provoked and extremely dangerous.”

    Cain describes focusing on women as monsters in the book because there is a “long tradition of manifesting our cultural anxieties as monsters,” and she says that women are the biggest fear in our society. The book is also described as being “Part Cat People, part The Handmaid’s Tale, all pro-feline agenda.”

    The comic is being produced for Image Comics by the production company Chelsea co-founded with Miternique in 2017.

    “Man-Eaters” #1 will be in stores on Wednesday, September 26th. In the meantime, enjoy the glitter variant cover below:
