“...one of the most unique and subversive artifacts of pop culture in recent memory.” -
"Seldom do comics burst onto the scene and shatter our worldview by being entirely poignant, raw, and captivating - but then, most comics aren't Bitch Panet." -
Award-nominated writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Pretty Deadly, Captain
Marvel) and Valentine De Landro (X-Factor) team up to bring you the premiere volume of Bitch Planet, a deliciously vicious riff on women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation.
In a future just a few years down the road in the wrong direction, a woman's failure to comply with her patriarchal overlords will result in exile to the meanest penal planet in the galaxy. When the newest crop of fresh femmes arrive,
can they work together to stay alive or will hidden agendas, crooked guards, and the deadliest sport on (or off!) Earth take them to their maker?

Kelly Sue DeConnick creates a new look into a future that sadly seems more possible than ever before. The book reads like a 70s movie but that's not a negative. There is an overall story arc about a sport that gets a little too much attention. I wished there would have been more character development. The art by Valentine De Landro is a really good fit for the story. The book won't be for everyone but I really enjoyed it.
Gosh I love this book. It's a believable dystopian future where sexism is taken to the extreme. The characters are well written and realistic and the art is great. The only problem is you have to wait so long for the next volume.
