Living on Bitch Planet

Living on Bitch Planet

Bitch Planet is a series that you read and quite literally never forget. After coming across is on Tumblr (Tumblr 2010-2014 was a time), I decided to dive into the series. Here are our thoughts: 

What is Bitch Planet all about?

Bitch Planet, created by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro, takes place in a future where women who are deemed "non-compliant" are sent to a prison planet known as Bitch Planet. The story follows a diverse group of women as they navigate the oppressive system and fight against the patriarchy.

Why is Bitch Planet so special?

First of all, the artwork in Bitch Planet is absolutely stunning. Valentine De Landro's illustrations are gritty, bold, and full of attitude. Each panel is a work of art in itself, capturing the emotions and power of the characters.

But it's not just the artwork that makes Bitch Planet special. The series tackles important themes such as sexism, racism, and body image, all while delivering a thrilling and action-packed story. It's a comic that doesn't shy away from the harsh realities of our world, and it forces readers to confront uncomfortable truths.

Who are the standout characters?

One of the standout characters in Bitch Planet is Kamau Kogo, a Black woman who becomes a symbol of resistance. Her strength and determination are truly inspiring, and she quickly becomes a fan favorite.

Another notable character is Penny Rolle, a plus-sized woman who refuses to conform to society's beauty standards. She embraces her body and challenges the notion that only certain bodies are worthy of love and respect.

Why should you read Bitch Planet?

If you're looking for a comic series that will make you think, challenge your beliefs, and entertain you all at once, Bitch Planet is the perfect choice. It's a thought-provoking and empowering story that will leave you craving for more.

But fair warning, Bitch Planet is not for the faint of heart. It's gritty, raw, and unapologetically feminist. It will make you question the status quo and ignite a fire within you to fight for change.

Final thoughts

Bitch Planet is a comic series that pushes boundaries and breaks the mold. It's a powerful and necessary addition to the world of comics, and it deserves all the praise it has received. So, grab a copy, buckle up, and get ready to be blown away by the sheer brilliance of Bitch Planet.
