Maw SC

Illustrated by A.L. Kaplan
Published by BOOM! Studios
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

When society makes monsters, sometimes the monsters bite back!

Marion Angela Weber accompanies her sister Wendy to a feminist retreat on a remote island seeking perspective and empowerment, but a disastrous first night leaves Marion frightfully changed. In the aftermath of an assault, Marion begins to transform as an unspeakable hunger crawls through her body. When the townsfolk recognize there's something different about Marion, they react with suspicion, then violence, while ignoring the monsters already among them. Writer Jude Ellison S. Doyle (Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers) and artist A.L. Kaplan (Full Spectrum Therapy, Heart of Gold) unleash Maw, a status-quo-shattering tale examining the consequences of sexist violence and the subjugation of marginalized genders, and what happens when the wounded are backed into a corner. Collects Maw #1-5.
