    Maw collects issues 1-5 of the Boom Studio comic written by Jude Ellison S. Doyle and art by A.L. Kaplan. Marion travels with her sister Wendy to a feminist retreat on the coast of Virginia.

On the first night at the retreat, Marion leaves the encampment for a local bar where her life will be forever changed. This is a very bleak book that turns into a horror story.

On the first night at the retreat, Marion leaves the encampment for a local bar where her life will be forever changed. This is a very bleak book that turns into a horror story. It has very important messages of rape, sexual harassment, and the unfairness of the American justice system. Doyle takes that hate, rage, and injustice and forges it into a horror that can take revenge. I think it was a great premise, but looses steam halfway through the book with some unnecessary twists. The art was great throughout and I would love to see more of Kaplan’s work.

    Sexual assault and rape revenge tales make for natural horror stories but that doesn’t make them any easier to take. Jude Ellison S. Doyle’s creature feature comic, “Maw,” adds a new wrinkle to the subgenre by making these inhuman deeds the origin stories for actual monsters but it all feels too superficial for such an important issue. I really liked A.L. Kaplan’s artwork and it’s Eduardo Risso-esque rigidity, however. I dunno, “Maw” wasn’t bad but it didn’t seem fully-formed.

    Doyle navigates a women's cult and the experiences of sexual abuse and what it leaves on the body very deftly. He avoids the pitfalls many of these stories fall into, which is both pleasantly surprising and expected if you've read his other work. Unfortunately, like so many short comics, the ending is snapped a bit short. Doyle navigates a women's cult and the experiences of sexual abuse and what it leaves on the body very deftly.

    Phenomenal. Sharp as knives writing and beautiful, haunting art. This potent combo of body horror, folk horror, and rape revenge will stay with me for a very, very long time.
