Bitch Planet: Triple Feature, Vol. 1 Reviews

  • Amanda Hanson

    This was beautiful and disturbing and made me want to read the rest of the Bitch Planet graphic novels immediately. Some of the stories felt too short and some resonated immensely. I'm glad I read this.

    Thank you to the publisher and to Edelweiss for the advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Political anthology tales from the world of Kelly Sue DeConnick's B-movie, sci-fi, dystopian nightmare about the patriarchy, 'Bitch Planet.'

    Each story certainly sticks with you. Some artwork is better than in the others, though I suspect a lot of the graininess, the distortions, and the ugliness all have a point; to add to the atmospheric horror of women being completely stripped of their rights and choices, and this is seen as normal. Progressive, even.

    Each story certainly sticks with you. Some artwork is better than in the others, though I suspect a lot of the graininess, the distortions, and the ugliness all have a point; to add to the atmospheric horror of women being completely stripped of their rights and choices, and this is seen as normal. Progressive, even.

    "This is good for you," they say.

    "It's for your own good," they say.

    "You'll be happier and healthier this way. We know better than you," they say.

    These terrifying tales of the misogynistic crypt deal with various feminist issues, plus issues that might not seem to have anything to do with feminism at first, but most definitely, assuredly do; such as fear-mongering, whitewashing, cultural approbation, and police brutality and senseless death targeted towards black people. With the news people placing sympathy on white men, on every case, all the time. Everyone else, no matter the circumstances, is either ignored or demonized.

    These are mirrors. Highlights of our society right now, obsessed with consumerism, commercialism, appearances, objectifying women, harassing women, catering to men, catering to white people, spotlighting famous men as the victims of the crimes they themselves have committed and are rarely punished for, the army, violence, toxic masculinity violence, nuclear family values, dismissing women's experiences, dismissing older women's experiences and views, and controlling women's health and reproductive rights and body parts - so they are no longer people, but things to be bought and masturbated over. While the women are expected to just take men's abuse and mistreatment, and lie, roll over and fawn over them like the sexy puppies the patriarchy prefers them to be. Not so extreme the more we think about it.

    The whole of 'Bitch Planet' is like 'The Handmaiden's Tale' on crack, and it is no less horrifying in how one can easily imagine something like it happening in the future. If we let it.

    Because yes, this is political as hell, and we, women, won't take it anymore.

    Now I hope the next anthology contains issues that concern transgender rights. Also Third World concerns and immigration.

    Final Score: 3.5/5

    I feel like punching something now.

    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

    Dang, this feels timely coming at the end of 2017. But I suppose that's the whole point, that Men in power have been doing this shit the whole time and we're just now acknowledging it.

    I gave the volumes 1 & 2 of the main series silly winking "The Patriarchy recommends" ratings of 3/5 and 5/5 respectively, but this anthology is detached from the main story and takes place within that world. It's depressing and heavy-handed, but doesn't lose much steam for all that. While I enjoyed this read,

    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?
