The Mantids ate everything in reach of their serrated arms. Nothing was spared. Babies were torn from their mother’s breasts and eaten while the mother watched, and then the mother was eaten, one bit at a time.
Nothing could stop them. The Mantids ate streets and buildings. They ate everything in their path.
As they ate, they grew. Some Mantids were as big as a truck, now. And they continued to eat.
They ate the Constitution of the United States of America. They ate whole libraries, sparing only copies of Christian Bible.
They drained lakes and ponds and boiled the waters in their diabolical factories. They consumed forests and fields. It appeared that the Big Darkness was upon the face of America.
And then a Hero appeared.
