Dragged by her sister Wendy to a feminist retreat on a remote island of Antgitia, Marion Angela Weber is seeking perspective and empowerment, but a disastrous first night leaves her frightfully changed. In the aftermath of an assault, Marion begins to transform as an unspeakable hunger crawls through her body. When the townsfolk recognize there's something different about Marion, they react with suspicion, then violence, while ignoring the monsters already among them.

Kaplan (Full Spectrum Therapy, Heart of Gold), and colorist Fabian Mascolo (Firefly: Brand New ‘Verse) unleash Maw, a status-quo-shattering tale examining the consequences of sexist violence and the subjugation of marginalized genders, and what happens when the wounded are backed into a corner. Collects the complete Maw #1-5.
