BOOM! Studios has announced the September release of Maw, described as “a fun, dark dive into how monsters – both fantastic and real – are made.”

Maw #1 is written by Jude Ellison S. Doyle, with art by A.L. Kaplan.

Maw #1Dragged by her sister Wendy to a feminist retreat on the remote island of Angitia, Marion Angela Weber hopes to gain some perspective and empowerment… that isn’t at the bottom of a bottle. But everything is horribly derailed after an assault on their first night there.

The violent encounter awakens something in Marion she never imagined, triggering warped mutations in her body, and bringing forth a hunger she can’t bring herself to name. When the townsfolk react with suspicion and violence, what unforgivable act will transform Marion into the very monster they’ve made her out to be?

“Maw might be the most fun I’ve ever had as a writer. It’s a love letter to all the ways horror can tell powerful, subversive and transformative stories about gender, and it’s a big, messy chunk of my heart that I somehow got paid to throw on a page. It’s been an honor to work with BOOM! and A.L. Kaplan on this, and I can’t wait to share it with you. Maw transformed me,” said Doyle in a press release from BOOM! Studios.
