Bitch Planet, Vol. 1: Extraordinary Machine by Kelly Sue DeConnick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The literary publishing industry is terrible when it comes to diversity in authors and stories. The comic book publishing industry is worse. Gems like Bitch Planet are difficult to come by. Kelly Sue DeConnick makes me proud to be a comic book writer and gives me something to strive towards. Bitch Planet is a series of feminist graphic novels that hit hard on patriarchy. From the strong (physically and mentally) women characters with diverse backgrounds who are literally kicking patriarchy down to the little misogynistic advertisements satirically sprinkled throughout the book, this graphic novel is in a league of its own. I can’t wait to read the rest of them!
