Feminist teen graphic novel MAN-EATERS, VOL. 1 will hit bookstores with exclusive signed edition for Independent Bookstore Day 2019

Eisner-nominated and New York Times bestselling thriller writer Chelsea Cain, artist Kate Niemczyk, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, and letterer Joe Caramagna of the controversial and buzzed about comic Mockingbird team with Lia Miternique and Stella Greenvoss to launch a hot new feminist sci-fi series for teens this March with Man-Eaters, Vol. 1. In celebration of the new series, an additional, exclusive, signed edition will be available for Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 27.
On the heels of Marvel’s unexpected cancellation of Cain’s The Vision series, support of Man-Eaters went viral across the social media sphere with signal blasts from mainstream media covering the Marvel slight and ironic timing with her new series, Man-Eaters. The hot new title can best be described 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 menstruating women to turn into ferocious killer wildcats—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 Naomi Alderman’s The PowerMan-Eaters has an all pro-feline agenda.

Bookstores interested in submitting Independent Bookstore Day orders must do so by Friday, February 1, 2019.

Man-Eaters, Vol. 1 (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1143-5, Diamond Code DEC180123) hits comic book stores on Wednesday, Feb 27 and bookstores on Tuesday, March 5. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, Jan 14.

It is available for pre-order on AmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-a-MillionIndieBound, and Indigo. Fans can also subscribe to receive the series delivered by mail within the domestic U.S. on Image Direct.

For digital readers, Man-Eaters is available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play.
Select praise for Man-Eaters, Vol. 1:

“The Image Comics series combines The Handmaid's TaleCat People and a wonderfully wicked sense of humor. Unlike anything else on the stands right now.” —The Hollywood Reporter

“It’s brilliant.” —Kelly Sue DeConnick, Bitch Planet

“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

“Cain has taken on the best of them and come out swinging because she’s just that damn good.” —Geek.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
“I am so cuckoo for this book. It’s so exciting, vital, funny, weird.” —Ben Blacker, Thrilling Adventure Hour, Nerdist Writers Panel, Supernatural, Hex Wives
