Reviews Bitch Planet (Bitch Planet: Triple Feature #1)

  • Chad
    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? Received a review copy from D...

    I feel like punching something now.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Renata
    (read as single issues)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 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/artis...

    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.
  • Audrey
    Like most collections, the quality is uneven amongst the contributors. But, it was a fascinating view into the scary (hopefully not a portent to come) world of Bitch Planet, from the ground. An origin story would be welcome.
  • Aaron
    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 ...
  • 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.
  • Artemis
    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. Progressiv...
  • TammyJo Eckhart
    If you are not familiar with the graphic novel series, "Bitch Planet," this is not a collection to start with. This is 15 stories that were collected in 5 special issues where graphic artists and writers dived dystopian hyper patriarchal white world of "Birth Planet". Yeah, I did just use all of those words to describe the universe that DeConnick & De Landro created.The layout was the biggests issue for this collection because it was a challenge ...
  • Susan
    Bitch Planet continues to speak to my heart. My angry, angry heart. It's raw, honest and occasionally really funny. In a scene of women protesting against the patriarchy one carries a sign that says "Mansplain my Boot Up Your Ass" which still makes me laugh whenever I think about it. I was very pleased to have finally found the character I would be in this world in "Everybody's Grandma is a Little Bit Feminist." I couldn't relate more to the nut-...
  • Downward
    This collection is a number of short narratives (three per issue, so fifteen total) that add shadow and color to the world that caused and exists outside of the titular “bitch Planet” — because the format of the stories requires them to be incredibly pithy, they serve specifically this purpose and not much else. There’s nothing of the main narrative in this thread, so it functions as a sort of intermezzo between story arcs, and is functio...
  • Katie Shepard
    tl;dr-- 4.75 Stars; MVP: Nanna from "Everybody's Grandma is a Little Bit Feminist." Great contribution to the Bitch Planet universe. So clever. I really enjoyed the stories in this volume. Such a clever idea to have several other creators contribute to the tone of the Bitch Planet universe. KSD wrote about how she was looking for contributors who understood the tone of the previous issues and I think she definitely found them. I really liked the ...
  • Mike
    I was probably too invested in wanting the main Bitch Planet narrative to continue to be in the right headspace for worldbuilding by other authors, but still, most of these stories were good (some great, some fine, none terrible), and a fair number of them brushed up against the edges of the main storyline. Overall the ones about women concerned with the Catch-22 of trying to be compliant were the most chilling.The Non-Compliant cosplayer photos ...
  • Jacquelyn
    A collection of vignettes from the world of Bitch Planet, holding us over while we wait for the main story to continue. Nothing is more feminist than collecting a diverse group of artists and storytellers, who might not otherwise have had the opportunity, to create short comics about the different ways the patriarchy hurts everyone, and how we can resist. It's like the back matter from the main title, in comic form.
  • Kimberly
    This collection is set in the Bitch Planet universe but does not advance the main story. Instead we get several vignettes that world build. I'll admit that it took a little while to understand this world when I first started reading this series. I think these short episodes give me a better understanding of the BPverse. This collection is smart ad made me say "DAYUM!!" and "OH SHIT!" and then smile... knowingly. If your resistance book club is lo...
  • Mel
    This is a set of short stories written by other writers and drawn by other artists but set in the Bitch Planet universe. There are three stories per comic! So they are very short! Hardly any time for characterisation, just a set up and a punch line. Some stories seem to miss the mark and seem to be written in a slightly different world. But overall it's a good collection and fills in a gap while waiting for the next proper volume.
  • Michael
    read in single issues This anthology was amazing. Each story touched on a different issue, all of which were handled well, I can't help but wish that they were longer and more flushed out. Without a doubt the last triple features was my favorite. Hope that some of these characters cross over into the main story arc.
  • Erin
    The thing about collections is that some of them are really great and some of them aren't so good, so I tend to just take the middle ground. Some of these comics were super clever, some were so-so, and some weren't so good. The really good ones made me pause in their cleverness and think, which I always appreciate.
  • Lora
    I think I liked these short vignettes of life on the future earth that created Bitch Planet even better than the main story. It may be satire, but this creepy misogynistic world kind of strikes a scary chord...
  • Joe
    An interesting experiment: Different authors writing unrelated stories within the Bitch Planet universe. Some good, some bad. Definitely not as strong as the first two volumes. Come back Kelly Sue DeConnick!
  • Erin Jackson
    Every single story is good. I liked how each one gave a little more insight into the “Bitch Planet” world. It hard to pick a favorite, but the one that sticks out in my mind the most is called Basic Bitch.
  • Forest Calvin Read
    Do you wanna be reminded of the crushing weight of the patriarchy when pulled to its fullest extent? Do you wanna feel weight and rage and hopelessness at how a "dystopian future" is so close to lived reality?Reading this made me really mad and really sad. Very powerful.
  • Erica McGillivray
    These stories were fascinating glimpses into the greater world of Bitch Planet. They were hit-or-miss in some cases, and my biggest complaints about the misses were that they weren't satirical enough. They were just already our world.
  • Destiny
    Sort stories in the universe of Bitch Planet. Loved them, more varied.
  • Angie
    Depressing, horrific, fascinating.
  • Brandon
    These stories are so extremely good while also being so extremely sad. It is so amazing to see so many different people's views of the Bitch Planet world.
  • Elena
    These stories are more often than not too short to be meaningful, and so end up being just bleak and bitter.
  • Tiffani
    What a way to start off the new year! I don't have the words to describe this - just that I love it.
