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.
  • 47Time
    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 someti...
  • 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

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

    Really excellent side stories. A great collection to introduce people to the world of Bitch Planet, with some biting social commentary on gender, race, and the state of the world we live in.
  • Rick
    Good stuff, but not quite as good as the regular story line. I liked the different perspectives and the art styles. Very enjoyable. This stuff should be required reading.
  • 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...
  • All Things Urban Fantasy
    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.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 sh...
  • 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-...
  • Jarrah
    It always feels like too long between issues of Bitch Planet, so I was thrilled that Kelly Sue DeConnick had a plan to fill the main storyline's hiatus with short comic stories with writing and art by diverse contributors. Now the various issues - each containing three stories - are collected in a new trade paperback that rounds out the BP world for all of us curious, non-compliants. The collection takes a look at how queer and racialized identit...
  • Sean Kottke
    Read in single issue format, but in one burst of catching up on back issues, this is a great project to showcase a diverse slate of comics authors and artists and unpack the world of Bitch Planet. I miss the main storyline, but this set of stories does a great job of maintaining the darkly satiric vision of the comic and demonstrating the sincerity of Kelly Sue DeConnick's open invitation to readers to explore myriad pathways through the world th...
  • 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...
  • David Thomas
    A collection of one-off short stories set in the Bitch Planet universe. I actually liked this a good bit more than the main plot volumes. Some were great, including "Everybody's Grandma is a Little Bit Feminist" which is about a grandmother who is openly feminist, to the chagrin of her family, and "Basic Bitch" which is about police brutality against a woman who dyes her skin brown for the sake of fashion.There were some problematic stories, thou...
  • Aydin
    For a title that about noncompliant women, there sure is a dearth of queer people in Triple Feature. Only one of the fifteen stories depicts queer people at all, and not only are they all victims of extreme violence, which is to be expected when you're reading Bitch Planet, but not one of them speaks. Instead, the story is from the perspective of one of the perpetrators of that violence.As with any anthology, the stories vary in quality and impac...
  • Lacey Rowland
    Just the kind of satire we need in a world like today. When some of it doesn’t feel like satire at all, that’s when it’s a gut-punch. And of course there are going to be people who don’t “get it” or are only concerned with the way the comic fits in with others in the genre (new flash, it plays with the genre in subversive ways). I found it to be refreshing from a lot of the misogynistic messaging we get in the media—a dark play on t...

    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 ...
  • Joanna
    Hit and miss volume of short features set in the Bitch Planet universe. Most are too short to really develop the characters or situations--some to the extent that I just ended up confused by the end. Others are at least dryly or darkly humorous, which I think carries them better. Overall, I think they're missing the power and intentionality of the main series (also can we please talk about the lack of queer representation here?), but enjoyed the ...
  • Andy
    Astounding addition to the first volume of the series! I really hope that they come out with more of these features. It expanded the world of Bitch Planet EXPONENTIALLY! I love the main Bitch Planet storyline, but this truly made my day to read! This anthology reminded me of Black Mirror or The Twilight Zone with its dystopian sci-fi vibes, but it also all took place in the same world, with the same societal laws. This extra aspect added some con...
