Staff Reviews


You've never seen anything like this before. You might have spotted its "Noncompliant" symbol on Women's March signs and fresh-looking tattoos. This is Handmaid's Tale with all the brakes taken off and projected forward into the far future. In this instant classic, any woman deemed "noncompliant"--too independent, too fat, too loud, too opinionated--are sent for reeducation on a moon nicknamed Bitch Planet. But bringing all these women together, this one-of-a-kind story creates an absorbing and suspenseful edge as, very far from forfeiting their power, the women push back. The patriarchy'll never know what hit them.

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?
