Image Comics and the Ministry of Trouble are pleased to announce that Elise McCall has been promoted to lead interior artist on Man-Eaters. McCall will take over from Kate Niemczyk beginning with Man-Eaters #9 in June and will kick off the third arc to the celebrated feminist teen horror comic book series.
Man-Eaters co-creators Chelsea Cain and Lia Miternique, colorist Rachelle Rosenberg, letterer Joe Caramagna, and the rest of the creative team, have worked with McCall on several issues and are thrilled she agreed to take on a larger creative role.
In that press release, writer Chelsea Cain said:
Elise knows Maude. We are simpatico. And she will bring so much heart and edge and awesomeness to the project.
To promote the change, Image will be bringing limited-edition promotional posters featuring art by McCall to Emerald City Comic Con this weekend.
