Review: Bitch Planet Vol 2
Bitch Planet Volume 2: President Bitch - Kelly Sue DeConnick

Powerful and compelling reading, just like the first volume. Interested to see what happens next.

Bitch Planet, Vol. 1: Extraordinary Machine
Bitch Planet, Vol. 1: Extraordinary Mach... Bitch Planet, Vol. 1: Extraordinary Machine - Kelly Sue DeConnick,Valentine De Landro,Robert Wilson IV Of Two Minds

Part of me really loves or wants to loves *itch Planet.

Part of me is uneasy with *itch Planet.

It's feminism is intersectional but that doesn't mean it's not bull. Intersections and depictions are tricky, especially when you don't reside in the specific crosshairs.

I've seen white women mess up time and again. Sometimes things just feel iffy & I can't articulate it. This is one of those times.

If I saw more positive reviews from black women and a black woman at the helm of this production, my mind would be more at ease.

As it is, my fellow white women, stay vigilant.

As a comic reader: I loved the 80s art and style. The fake ads were clever and well used.

It's satire of the Juvenal pursuation. Taking the oppressive sexism to extreme futuristic dystopian levels.

I like the discussion guide in the back, how it names intersectional feminism directly taking the bull by its horns.

There is nudity but it's tied to the story & I don't think perpetuates the male gaze. BUT given it's majority POC and black women bodies, it's entirely possible I'm missing it as I've been inundated with media's problematic usage my whole life.

There is violence, institutional devised violence. I again don't think it's gratuitous but grain of salt.

As far as comparing it to Orange is the New Black: I've never seen it though I've heard all the high praise for it so I don't get the problem?

[Book Review] Bitch Planet (Volume 2)
Bitch Planet Volume 2: President Bitch - Kelly Sue DeConnick

Also reviewed:
Bitch Planet, Volume 1

 

Look, I'm going to be honest,  if you've read Volume 1 you should already be interested in reading Volume 2 (that or you're offended by it's strong feminist agenda and therefore have no interest at all).  If you haven't read Volume 1, why are you looking for a review and not reading Volume 1?
 
Volume 2 continues the story that started in Volume 1, while also expanding on the histories that led to the current regime and imprisonments.  Not all of the women are imprisoned for simply spurious crimes.  Some of their pasts tie directly into the present.  And things on Auxiliary Compliance Outpost #2 are coming to a very explosive head.


Strongly recommend.

Sci-fi comic collection set in a dystopian future continues.
Bitch Planet Volume 2: President Bitch - Kelly Sue DeConnick

 

In this collection, the story continues from Volume 1 (which it is best to have read first), firstly with how Meiko ended up on Bitch Planet and subsequently about the inmates plotting and rebelling. Fighting breaks out in various places with savage consequences.

Gruesome and reasonably entertaining, worth a look. There’s more to come.
