Graphic Novel Review: Bitch Planet #1 (Bitch Planet #1) by Kelly Sue DeConnick (Goodreads Author), Valentine De Landro (Illustrator)
Women who have done wrong be it a crime or disobedience in work or home are sent to “bitch planet” for punishment and to be cleansed. This novel centralizes around a group of women, who must work together in order to stay alive and maybe get off bitch planet.
I am completely aware that the summary really doesn’t explain anything about the book. But trust me, when I say this graphic novel is great and has so much potential to be the best thing ever I completely mean it.
The artwork is amazing. The illustrator did a great job on details down to the last sweat drop. What I most loved about the artwork was the believe-ability (if that is a word). These woman (and men) were realistic. Maybe not their circumstances (but let’s be honest, if men can ship us off to get a better woman if we misbehaved they would) but I can picture these women on the street without hesitation.
But the story is what kept me reading. I need to know more about each of these women. I need to know why “bitch planet” was created and what everyone has to do with it. I need to know it all! I am in love with the characters and their no nonsense. I am in love with the badass woman, Kam. She is perfect and I hope her backstory is amazing as who she appears to be.
Also A+ for diversity. I don’t just mean diversity in skin complexion but also in personalities and ethnic background.
Although this is a short review, I really can’t go on without actually telling you details of the story or without ranting how in love I am.
Overall, I will probably buy this series.
