BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at MAW #1, the premier issue of a provocative five-issue horror series by award-winning journalist and opinion writer Jude Ellison S. Doyle, artist A.L. Kaplan, colorist Fabiana Mascolo, and letterer Cardinal Rae, that explores the anger of those trapped by society’s expectations and the monsters born from that collective rage, available on September 15, 2021.
Dragged 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 #1 features main cover art by artist Ariela Kristantina with Sarah Stern, and variant cover art by acclaimed illustrators Megan Hutchison-Cates with Dee Cunniffe, Abigail Jill Harding, and Tiffany Turrill.
