    1. I don't know how to review this. I always struggle with reviewing graphic novels - especially when it comes to the artwork (somehow "oh look how nice it all looks" really is not all that descriptive). But I also struggle with reviewing this in particular because I am not really sure on my thoughts at all. So, this will be a rambly kind of review where I try to sort my thoughts as I go.First of all, I did enjoy this. But it also made me umcomfortable. But I also love the characters. But I think i [...]

    2. Bitch Planet is a series set in the near future when women’s rights are long gone with the end of resources like Planned Parenthood and a woman’s right to choose. Women who do not fit into society's ideal image for women--physically, emotionally, and so on--get sent to Bitch Planet, and as they say on the cover, these women are "caged and [justifiably] enraged." Men take a hit in this one, of course, but women also take their fair share of abuse, for buying into and helping reinforce societa [...]

    3. Arrived - and completed - today! The intensity, devotion, and emotion. It's just all so well done. And the artwork blows my damn mind! The "advertisements" are so creative, funny, and sadly, true.

    4. Find this and other Reviews at In Tori LexI was overjoyed to pick up with the characters in this series. This volume explained more about how Bitch Planet came to be, although there are still pieces to that puzzle missing. We catch up with the characters on Bitch Planet who are still trying to find ways to use their participation in the upcoming Megaton games as a form of rebellion. However in this issue we learn more about the horrors of male power being revered and unchecked at the costs of yo [...]

    5. So, I read this graphic novel last week during my dinner break, and it's taken me this whole week to figure out how to organize my thoughts. Here we go.I read volume 1 of Bitch Planet last November, in the scrum of one of the worst elections in American history. I remember watching Donald Trump talk about abortion as if doctors "ripped the baby out, they rip it right out," reading about Mike Pence's beliefs on conversion therapy for LGBTQ+ folks, and listening to countless waves of white Republi [...]

    6. Ugh, here we are again I didn't even review the first volume, because I didn't want to admit how disappointed I was in it. I want to LOVE this series; but I find, try as I might, I am just not a fan of Kelly Sue DeConnick's work. She seems like a dope ass lady to be friends with, but I just can't hang with her graphic novels. They always seem to just be lacking somethingHowever, this is not a review of Kelly Sue as a person (again, she seems DOPE AF) but of a comic that I read, and somewhat enjo [...]

    7. Good! So I FINALLY got this book; After waiting almost 2 years since I ordered it off the previews I finally have book 2 of this series! Was it worth the wait? Yes I think so, in fact the delays this volume had is my only real complaint about this volume, otherwise its great! So what started as a Orange is the New Black meets Hungers Games hybrid; has quickly become an interesting Sci-Fi social commentary on feminism in Society, while still being a well told, fun comic book! Without spoilers thi [...]

    8. Well I'd like it alot more than 1 so that's good. So after the death of a main character we have the rest of the women trying to find their role and still break out of this hell hole. The story doesn't skip a beat, throwing you right into the background of a main character and learn why her ultimate fate ended up that way. Then we jump into present time trying to build all these characters up for the big revolution. The escape. Do they do it? Well it wouldn't be fun if they didn't try. Good: The [...]

    9. Lectura rápida. Siempre emotiva. Me quede un poco perdida en lo que pasaba en el argumento, pero lo retome como para el 3er tomó aprox.

    10. Another great volume in the series. I really like the way the story is progressing with the jail break and the reveal of the resistance, which is starting an awesome new lipstick trend. I also enjoyed reading the authors' discussion at the back about their thought processes in deciding how to represent trans-gender women in the book. Solid read.

    11. Bullet Review:It was neat to see where the story went from volume 1. My biggest regret is not rereading volume 1 before jumping into volume 2 - not an ideal situation, as I was playing catchup most of the time. While the artwork on the characters makes them memorable (Penny and Kam are pretty distinct), the other characters blend in if you haven't read the previous volume.This issue starts off with a standalone with Meiko, and that was not the way you want to start back a long-awaited second vol [...]

    12. ORIGINALLY POSTED: bibliomantics/2017/06/19/Sometimes you need to read something that’s essentially one giant middle finger aimed at the patriarchy. A feminist comic book full of scathing satire, while I didn’t think volume two was nearly as strong as its predecessor, I’m looking forward to seeing what the Bitch Planet team has in store for its third arc. Vive la révolution!

    13. Timely and well developed. I enjoyed learning more of Meiko's backstory, and I love where the story's headed!

    14. I didn't read issue six because the book comes with a content warning for sexual assault. Thank you so, so much for this. Anyways, I'm ready for my non-compliant tattoo. This one is just as good as the first. I want to give this series to everyone I know.

    15. This volume picks up where we last left off. If you haven't read this series yet, I'd recommend going back over to my review of volume one for a quick review. Here, I'll only be mentioning things that changed from volume one. All in all, my opinion on this was similar to my opinion of book one, although I did preferr the more intersectional feminism. In this volume, we're introduced to some trans girl characters, which I really appreciated. We also see the scope of the story expand. And yet I st [...]

    16. Rated M for Mature indeed.The setting is the near future, and if you are woman who does not conform to what the men you encounter want you to be, you get shipped off to a the meanest penal planet in the galaxy. But how did this come to pass? This volume covers some of that back story. I loved the first volume, but this one did not work as well for me. I am still totally on board for the premise, the hard look at patriarchal modes and the men and women who aid in keeping the system in place, but [...]

    17. The little bits at the back about societies attitudes to women are brilliant.I’m getting slightly confused as to what is going on, it reminds me a bit of Robert K. Vaughan’s writing style, not having a clue what’s going on but enough of a clue to keep you intrigued and entertained. Enjoying this series so far, the very last scene has got me excited for what is next.

    18. I waited for this trade for soooo loooong of a time. And then it wasn't long enough, like in terms of page length; I read it in about twenty minutes (cackling through most of it), and then it was over and I was sad. But it was very good. And now we have to wait even longer for Vol. 3. These are the woes you are in for when you read an ongoing comic series, but especially this one, which is agony.Vol. 2 opens up with Maeko Maki backstory (Maeko was the woman killed in the riots in Vol. 1). Turns [...]

    19. I want to like this more than I actually do, especially considering there's a large portion of our population (including our president) who'd be content with society heading this direction. Part of it is probably that volume 1 came out over a year ago, but when I was reading this, I frequently wondered WTF was going on. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and they sometimes don't pop up for several issues. The art isn't really detailed enough to let the art tell the story. I didn't pi [...]

    20. Like in the first volume, there are some great moments where the satire is well handled, but the whole is ultimately disappointing. It feels like a self-congratulatory pat on the back for young white liberals.I still find it enjoyable, and root for the heroes. And it is important. But the notion that this is the height of third wave feminist comics is sad. We need to ask for more.

    21. The Handmaid's Tale meets Orange is the New Black (in space) - and it's so good! Typically, there is no volume three now that I'm really into it😩

    22. You coulda got there, you coulda been right up on her and maybe she'd still be in the ground. We're never going to know cause we didn't live that life. We're living this one, Penny. This one. We are strong, right? You and me. We spend our whole lives being strong, and then One day you realize strong ain't strong enough.I'm continuing to enjoy the hell out of this righteous mixtape ofReform School Girls, Rollerball, and The Handmaid's Tale. It concerns a near-future dystopian patriarchy, and the [...]

    23. I might have liked this more than the first volume, how was that possible? it was so exciting to read. and introduced such amazing new characters and relationships. yes, more please!full review here: catshelf.wordpress/2017/0

    24. "Lean in, can you hear it?"(Full disclosure: I received a free electronic galley for review through Edelweiss. Trigger warning for plot points involving rape, misogyny, and transphobia.)About a month ago started sending me emails every time I marked a book read: "You finished Heart-Shaped Box. What's next?" Usually I just send them to the trash without a second thought; just another gimmick to increase engagement, you know? But the one for Bitch Planet? Kind of gave me pause.What comes next aft [...]

    25. Well, the delays may mean I've lost track of the storyline somewhat, but this nightmarish patriarchal future certainly feels a lot closer from July 2017 than it did two years ago - especially the female President erased by the angry men. Still as angry and consciously lurid as ever, though I was surprised by the trigger warning on the first issue; it'd be a grand idea to use them for eg random issues of generic superhero comics which think chucking a bit of sexual violence in makes them edgy, bu [...]

    26. Volume one of this series introduced us to a future where the dystopian concept of a patriarchal society goes to very scary places. While The Handmaid's Tale takes a softer approach to putting women in their place, Bitch Planet takes more extreme measures with its non-compliant women. They are sent to, well, the Bitch Planet, a penal planet for women. This collection of issues steps back in time to tell us about Maiko's life before her untimely death and how she came to be imprisoned for murder [...]
