Staff Reviews


The scene is Portland in a not-so-distant alternative reality. The problem? Toxinoplasmosis X: a virus that infects young girls during menstruation, metamorphosing them into ferocious cats of prey. Society has taken preventative measures (forced hormone therapy, special products to keep boys safe from estrogen exposure - advertised within!) to prevent anyone with a uterus from getting their period. The story follows Maude, an intelligent and independent girl living with her dorky dad, who works alongside her mother in a special force unit made to combat the "cat problem." These "cat problems" are closer to Maude than one may think...

Cleverly written, amazingly illustrated, and perfectly executed, this is a book for fans of smashing patriarchy! I cannot wait to get my paws on the coming issues!

— Marissa Santillan
