Premise: A parasite named toxoplasmosis is linked to feline feces. All of the population has it but a small number of young women in puberty triggers a “massive cellular change,” giant killer cats. The government has taken precautions and has put estrogen and progesterone in the the public water supple.
Characters: Maude is a 12-year-old girl whose period brings an unexpected change, especially when her father is a homicide detective and her mother heads the Strategic Cat Apprehension Team. Taught for years to be aware of the symptoms and to protect herself from other “man-eaters,” Maude doesn’t know exactly what to do, but the reader finds out a bit of backstory that points to a plan she and her friends have put in action…
Artwork/ Storytelling: I loved this artwork, the layout, and the fun propaganda used to tell the story. I did find some of the lines/ ideas repetitive.
Overall: I wanted a bit more of a plot from the first 4 books of a series. The fourth issue is a satirical magazine filled with articles dedicated as info for “men and boys” to help them steer clear of the emerging man-eaters.
What you get from this comic is original humor and several good characters, even though it may be a plot you have read before.
