An exclusive Man-Eaters promo poster featuring McCall’s artwork will be available at the team’s signings at Emerald City Comic Con
Image Comics and the Ministry of Trouble are pleased to announce that Elise McCall has been promoted to lead interior artist on Man-Eaters. McCall will take over from Kate Niemczyk beginning with Man-Eaters #9 in June and will kick off the third arc to the celebrated feminist teen horror comic book series.

Man-Eaters co-creators Chelsea Cain and Lia Miternique, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, letterer Joe Caramagna, and the rest of the creative team, have worked with McCall on several issues and are thrilled she agreed to take on a larger creative role.

“Elise knows Maude,” said Cain. “We are simpatico. And she will bring so much heart and edge and awesomeness to the project.”

To celebrate this new collaboration, Image Comics will have a limited run of promotional posters—which will feature exclusive artwork by McCall—and be available at the creative team's signings during Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle this week.

Fans of Cain, Caramagna, Rosenberg, and Niemczyk’s first collaboration Mockingbird flocked to support of Man-Eaters at launch and many have characterized the hot new title as Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine DeLandro’s Bitch Planet meets Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

In Man-Eaters, readers are introduced to a world where a mutation in Toxoplasmosis causes adolescent girls to turn into flesh-eating panthers—easily provoked and extremely dangerous. As panic spreads and paranoia takes root, the fate of the world rides on the shoulders of one 12-year-old girl. Part Cat People, part current events, Man-Eaters has an all pro-feline agenda.
Man-Eaters, Vol. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1143-5, Diamond Code DEC180123) is available now at your local comic shop, AmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-a-MillionIndieBound, and Indigo.

Man-Eaters, Vol. 2 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1309-5) is will be available at comic shops on Wednesday, June 5 and at bookstores on Tuesday, June 11. I can be pre-ordered at AmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-a-MillionIndieBound, and Indigo.

The third story arc featuring artwork by McCall will begin simultaneously with Man-Eaters #9 hitting comic shops on Wednesday, June 5.

“Rachelle Rosenberg's colors help tie everything together, painting even the darker moments of the issue with eye-popping colors. Joe Caramagna's feels like the icing on the cake, going from clever and childlike whimsy to genuine terror with ease. As a whole, the visual aesthetic of Man-Eaters nails the nuance of being a teenage girl—facing the horrors of the world, but attempting to hang on to a sense of optimism in the process.” —Comicbook.com

Man-Eaters has a sharp sense of humor that fuels the book’s momentum and makes it an especially fun read.” —The Onion’s AV Club

“Cain and Niemczyk are remarkably inventive here, telling the story through traditional narrative comics and graphs and photorealistic effects and other wild experiments in visual narrative…Cain seems to inherently understand what it is that makes comics so great.”  —The Seattle Review of Books
