BITCH PLANET is a thought-provoking and important series, but it can also be a difficult one to read. Kelly Sue DeConnick has the ability to turn a spotlight on a harsh truth and inspect it. BITCH PLANET: TRIPLE FEATURE VOLUME 1 introduces us to different artists and writers, each with their own spin on DeConnick's universe.
However, the universe that Kelly Sue DeConnick created is too immense for the short story format. There's not enough time to develop full out rebellions and story arcs. It's difficult to get attached to the characters in such a short amount of time. What stuck with me the most was the difficult experiences the women went through, rather than the women themselves. And these are depressing, harsh stories that capture a reality that many women face, despite not living in a dystopian future.
For another graphic novel series written by and featuring women, try Lumberjanes by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis, Shannon Watters, and Brooke Allen.
