Image Comics and the Ministry of Trouble have announced that artist Elise McCall will take over as the lead artist on the Man-Eaters series.
McCall will take over beginning with Man-Eaters #9, which kicks off the third arc of the series.
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.
“Elise knows Maude,” said creator Chelsea 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.
Man-Eaters #9 arrives in June 2019.
