Review

Every revolution has a few setbacks. Maude’s plans are temporarily on hold, but the revolution continues. During this brief interlude, readers learn the origins of the revolution. Viva la revolucion!

Man-Eater’s #6 puts the brakes on the action, offering readers a peek at how Maude became a young rebel. Once again, Chelsea Cain’s script is simply flawless. Cain approaches the patriarchy with a heavy dose of rebellion and a pinch of sardonic comedy. Man-Eater’s #6 provides plenty of catnip for future issues, but an equally satisfying ending to the first story arc.

Kate Niemczyk’s art continues to enhance the story, going beyond Cain’s script to add comedic and social commentary. As more is revealed about Maude’s rebellion and the state of the city,  Niemczyk’s art adds layers to an already complex story.

This issue marks the end of the first story arc for the series. Thus far, Cain and Niemczyk have produced a superior comic. There’s social commentary, comic commentary, and plenty of wit to go around. Maude’s narrative is visually intriguing, while the story itself remains entirely entertaining. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Maude’s revolution.

The Bottom Line

Man-Eater’s #6 ends the first story arc as it began, with kick-ass writing and a killer cliffhanger. Chelsea Cain writes a tale of female rebellion for the present day, packed with clever writer and though-provoking internal dialogue.
