Your First Look at Jude Ellison S. Doyle and A.L. Kaplan’s MAW #3
BOOM! Studios today revealed a first look at MAW #3, the third issue of a provocative five-issue horror series by award-winning journalist and opinion writer Jude Ellison S. Doyle (Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy, and the Fear of Female Power), artist A.L. Kaplan (Jim Henson’s The Storyteller: Tricksters), 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 in November 2021.
Marion’s terrifying transformation is nearly complete, but she finds utility in it, turning the tables on the predators harassing women in local bars. When these men go on the hunt for revenge, a huge mistake pushes Marion into a fully monstrous form . . . and there will be hell to pay.
MAW #3 features main cover art by artist Ariela Kristantina (The Many Deaths of Laila Starr) with Sarah Stern, an homage variant by Dani Pendergast (Magic), and incentive covers by Abigail Larson (A Man Among Ye) and Ariela Kristantina with Sarah Stern.
