Bitch Planet: Triple Feature, Vol. 1 Reviews

  • Hilary Martin

    I'm thinking of going to my next Comic Con as Non Compliant. :)

  • Stephanie

    I feel like punching something now.

  • Verity W

    I find Bitch Planet fascinating, scary and a little off the wall and these short features are no different. There's humour here, but it's very, very black, and I some times feel like I'm not comic-literate enough and am missing things. But I like that they challenge me and put me out of my comfort zone.

    I feel likeeeeeeeee the thing about these being set in the world of Bitch Planet but not moving forward the main plot is that it just really depressed me, like for the same reasons I haven't watched Handmaid's Tale show yet...like I feel like I'm not ready for satire about extreme patriarchy right now, maybe in a few years or something.

    I feel likeeeeeeeee the thing about these being set in the world of Bitch Planet but not moving forward the main plot is that it just really depressed me, like for the same reasons I haven't watched Handmaid's Tale show yet...like I feel like I'm not ready for satire about extreme patriarchy right now, maybe in a few years or something. Also I appreciate the concept of having all these short stories with great authors/artists but they are all so short I never got that invested in any of them.

    Just not really my cup of tea. As ever the single issues include great interviews and other back matter though.

  • Cat  (cat-thecatlady)

    although there's some good stuff in here, I felt like most stories were too short to really get some point across. only can say I enjoyed a couple of them but I do appreciate the work and ideas put in this.

    full review soon

  • Jerrie (redwritinghood)

    These short vignettes are filled with the satirical social commentary you expect from Bitch Planet. Of course, I liked some more than others, but overall this was great fun.

    Random stories of women from the world of Bitch Planet. I'm interested in where the story of the main book is headed. These random depressing stories set in the same world not so much. How many stories can you read of stupid, aggro men putting down women before you want to go slit your wrists? I'm getting depressed just reading this review. Plus, it's mostly by sub-par indie artists. Who thought this was a good idea?

    All these stories are one big 'meh.' At least the members of the 'crack team' were consistent. The fifteen 'teeth-clenching' tales don't have a chance to shine in under three minutes of reading. I suppose the intention was to expand this dystopia and to some degree they manage it. Still, I prefer named characters that I can follow for at least a full story arc. I'm starting to hate anthologies. While the completely independent stories were sometimes fun, they didn't get me hooked, in part becaus

I'm starting to hate anthologies. While the completely independent stories were sometimes fun, they didn't get me hooked, in part because of all the in-your-face misogyny. Why some writers went with 'wa wa wa waaaa' comedy is beyond me. The artwork changes along with the writing and it can go from sexy to cartoony in an instant.

    Shocking to realise that

    Shocking to realise that

    launched in 2014, yet has only managed ten issues since - and those are years during which its nightmare patriarchal future seems to have come distinctly closer. Obviously one can't hold deConnick and de Landro's workrate entirely responsible for the rise of Trump, but that unkind line of Peter Cook's about the wonderful Weimar cabarets does spring to mind, and it would have been nice if they could have kept up a little more momentum. So, tiding us over, an anthology title set in the same world - five issues, each with (as the title suggests) three stories, from a world where old gender rules have been reasserted with a vengeance, and women who don't like them get labelled Non-Compliant and shipped off to space gaol.

    Most of the creators are new to me - the exceptions being Elsa Charretier, Vanesa del Rey, deConnick's husband, and one of John Lewis' collaborators on

    . But I think I'm right in saying that there are few, if any, Brits, which is a shame, because whatever else may have gone horribly wrong with this country, in

    's Future Shocks and the like, Britain does have the world's finest academy for short SF comics. Not that they're all winners, by any means - but even at their worst they at least offer some pointers on what to avoid. Whereas here, with everything being set in the same world, the first three issues in particular are prone to story after story where the Surprise! Twist Ending! is 'Aaaah, patriarchy.' Well, yes, we knew that - it is pretty much the premise of the setting, after all. There are exceptions, of course, stories which rather than going for a gotcha use their scant space to weave a claustrophobic vignette; 'Without and Within' and 'Love, Honor & Obey' both sculpt horribly compelling examples of the double bind whereby women are damned if they do and damned if they don't (though the latter then feels the need to add a twist anyway).

    The hit rate picks up in the fourth issue; 'Life of a Sportsman' encapsulates the way that sport celebrates and accentuates everything that's most toxic in masculinity, though it's debatable whether it even needs a science fiction setting; the grotesque 'Bodymods', on the other hand, takes full advantage both of that and the comics form. But for me the highlight is the final issue's 'Everyone's Grandma is a Little Bit Feminist', which flips the stereotypical scene of the awkwardly unreconstructed grandparent at Christmas dinner for an era when progress has been thrown into reverse. An excellent piece of satirical science fiction, and here's hoping it stays that way.

    (I had this from Edelweiss as an ARC but, as with volume 2 of the parent series, the file simply wouldn't work - I think that, ironically, the deliberately retro and pulp look

    uses for the art is very intensive to render digitally. So in the end I read this from the library, but I'm going to do the declaration of interest anyway to be on the safe side)
