Staff Reviews


So painfully misogynist that it wraps around to being the best feminist graphic novel ever. Bitch Planet is the story of a prison facility that is the only structure on an otherwise uninhabitable planet, and is populated entirely by “insubordinate” women. In this story, women who disagree with the oppressive patriarchy are sent to the “Bitch Planet” until they can be brainwashed and rereleased into society. When you are sick of politics and the state of our world, read Bitch Planet. It is the balm for patriarchal wounds of the soul. 10/10. – Sam

Description


..".one of the most unique and subversive artifacts of pop culture in recent memory." - Salon.com

"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." - Entertainment Weekly

Eisner 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?
