    Okay wait a sec...that was kinda jarring. I've been really digging this series but the page where they have a screen displaying what seem to be actual tweets criticizing the series as TERFy appears to be mocking the criticism. Which is gross. Acknowledge the criticism or don't--a better response might have been replying that while a satire, the series can't address every issue under the wide umbrella of feminism--but when fellow members of your ideology point out a flaw in good faith, mocking Okay wait a sec...that was kinda jarring.

Which is gross. Acknowledge the criticism or don't--a better response might have been replying that while a satire, the series can't address every issue under the wide umbrella of feminism--but when fellow members of your ideology point out a flaw in good faith, mocking them isn't a good look. The response could have been handled better and does lend credence to the claims of TERFism. And the only criticisms to be quoted are those from fellow feminists calling the comic TERFy...aren't there some comic book bro tweets railing against having to let icky girls join the club that could have been featured instead? Why zero in on the TERF point of criticism to mock one's fellows in the movement instead of, you know, making fun of dopey remarks by one's opponents, unless to pointedly take a TERF stance? Again, it could have been handled better, without alienating members of the same movement(s). I hope I'm reading that wrong, but for now I'm disappointed.

    Finally, an issue of Man-Eaters that feels like it's getting somewhere! I was so furious with Man-Eaters #8 (yet another pointless filler issue that pissed me off) that I considered not continuing with the series. However, I have spent too much time with Man-Eaters already, and I have to know how Chelsea Cain's wacky series ends. Man-Eaters #9 moves the plot of the revolution forward, which it is something I've been looking forward to.

I was so furious with Man-Eaters #8 (yet another pointless filler issue that pissed me off) that I considered not continuing with the series. However, I have spent too much time with Man-Eaters already, and I have to know how Chelsea Cain's wacky series ends. Man-Eaters #9 moves the plot of the revolution forward, which it is something I've been looking forward to. So far, this series has had far too little revolution for me taste. I love the revolution. I love Maude's new hair, her distain for the rehabilitation center she's in, and the resistance movement she leads there. I'm very eager to see where this part of the series goes because I can see it truly having potential. Cain also throws in a little twist later on in the issue that I didn't see coming so that was nice too. Here are a few of my favorite moments: 1. Jeff genuinely not knowing how menstruation works and his ex-wife telling him to look into that and educate himself a little. Cain is at her cleverest in this issue. 2. The interaction between Maude and her dad where she cheerfully declared they're defeating the patriarchy and he reacted by saying...: "...And that's how we're going to defeat the patriarchy. Dad?" "But the patriarchy is... me." God, I wish every dad had this sad but sincere revelation. 3. Men misguidedly thinking they can or should help women when the help is unsolicited and then thinking women should be grateful for it is usually frustrating, but in this issue it's just funny. I'm happy to be excited about Man-Eaters again. Recommended!

    Yay for story! At first I didn't notice the little note about the time frame, so I was confused. But once I realized that it was fine. I like the way it's progressing. I'm adjusting to the new artist. It's weird cause it was like Maude aged 2 years or so since the last book. Her look really changed. But it's not bad, just different.

    This was not the direction I expected that sit down moment of truth to lead to. But I have to say; I'm interested. I don't know where this is going to lead in the long run, but I sure am curious. I know that this series is struggling to make it through its story (likely due to sales), which is such a shame. I'm grateful that they promised to conclude the plot no matter what.

    I think the story has lost it's momentum (filler issues #4 and #8 certainly didn't help). All this back and forth in time is a little confusing. There is a revolution brewing - but is it too late to save the series?

    Are we finally going to get a linear coherent story? That's good.
