But what happened on Earth that this new world order came to pass in the first place? Return to the grim corridors of Auxiliary Compliance Outpost #2, to uncover the first clues to the history of the world as we know it and meet PRESIDENT BITCH This volume collects issues #6-10, a reader discussion guide and additional bonus materials.

I was so surprised by where this volume went! It was really exciting! Looking forward to the next one!

Really appreciated their introduction of transwomen and that they consulted with and adjusted their work to reflect feedback from several transwomen they named in the Q&A.

This volume begins with a trigger warning for images relating to sexual assault, and the 2008 DOJ survey statistic that 1 in 16 female prisoners reported being sexually assaulted while incarcerated. I‘m not generally one to condone violence, but every backstory I get in this series where an assailant or intended assailant is maimed or killed, I feel fiercely that the closest thing to justice possible has been served. #metoo #believevictims

The more I read if bitch planet the more it seems like a perfect partner to the handmaids tale. Amazing but shocking.

MStew I've read handmaids tale, I'll have to check this series out 1y
BruceWalken I‘ve seen the show with my wife (who has read it) so I know a little about how shocking that world is. I got a similar vibe from this. Pretty brutal in some parts. 1y
MStew Stacked!!!! I have to read it now! 1y

I read the first volume this morning and it was awesome!! But volume 2 has this disclaimer, should I go on? I really want to but then again I don‘t want to deal with those situations. What do you guys think? Thanks!! 😊👍❤️📚🤷🏽‍♀️

Redwritinghood I‘ve read it already and can recommend it. Read on! 1y
Weaponxgirl I feel they put the disclaimer in so that people wouldn't suddenly have to deal with those feelings if they would be triggered. It isn't though overly gratuitous and does further the plot. I read it and recommend it, but we all have our own limits 1y

My mother saw me reading this and asked why I'd read anything that would make me mad ... Well Ma it's because this isn't a book that revels masturbatorily in the degradation of women. This is a series of women fighting a system of oppression. And it doesn't focus on one type of woman this has some great intersectionality. Also the advertisements make me smile. #badasswomen #feministgraphicnovels #bitchplanet

#Libraryhaul - I‘m so proud of myself! Next wkend (Jan 27-28) is the #24in48 readathon and I‘ve actually planned some light fun options. This is my third participation: the first I heard about it right before and had no plan; the second time I tried to plan but my library holds didn‘t come in; now third time is the charm! It should be a blast even if I still don‘t hit the 24 hr mark 📚

Must-read for fans of Bitch Planet! This arc adds transgender women to the revolution and adds depth to characters and the story.

bookishkris Awwww, how old is Lola? 2y
LauraJ @bookishkris She‘s 11ish. She was an adult when I adopted her, so I‘m not sure. @britt_brooke Most of the time. Like most pugs, she can be a stubborn jerk. 2y
bookishkris @LauraJ she‘s a cutie. I love elderly pugs. We‘ve had three that lived to be 17, 18, and 19 respectively. Now we have a 4 year old and a 1 year old. The 1 year old‘s nicknames include yahoo, shithead, and dumbass, but really we do love her, she just does the most ridiculous stuff sometimes! 2y
LauraJ @bookishkris Fingers crossed for Lola. She has a degenerative spine, so as long as her quality of life is good, we‘ll take as many birthdays as we can get. Post some pics of your puglets! 2y

Another entry into a world that feels far closer to reality than is comfortable. Seeing the ways that threads of now are being picked up to show how they could be used in the future is disturbing but no less realistic. It is an uncomfortable read because we see how easily this can come to pass. If you are looking to stoke some feminist rage, look no further.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa It‘s great isn‘t it! 2y
TsundokuAleax @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I am loving what they have going on. Also so many of the comics now are really a multiple read deal. The images have so much going on that you need to back to pick up on so much of what the reader is being "told". 2y

Great follow up to book one and can‘t wait to read more. Writer DeConnick and artist DeLandro show us a dystopia that feels familiar — a world run by patriarchy, where “noncompliant” women are criminalized and sent to a penal colony called Bitch Planet. In Volume 2, we learn that President Eleanor Doane, long thought dead, has been imprisoned and rebellion is in the air. https://cannonballread.com/2017/12/its-a-cannonball-bitch/

Happy #comicthon everyone!!!!! I'm still with family today so I probably won't get to read much. If I have a sliver of time, I'll be hitting up Bitch Planet v2 and Deadpool: World's Greatest v6.

Considering how many comics I read on the regular anyways........I think I can afford to miss comicthon this time. It's like a regular day for me, anyways 😝

Hit me up if you have any comic q's or need recs!!

I am a huge fan of all the fun page layouts in this one. This one is one of my favourites because it makes my mild OCD quite happy. Ascetically pleasing. 😍

alanacristin I love this series! The monthlies are awesome for the back matter full of essays and great letters. It's slow moving though, only 10 issues so far (just the two trades). 2y
alanacristin Oh just looked it up and the guest issues they've released this year (which i couldn't find listed individually on image..) are being released as a trade compliation next month. 2y
alanacristin Ok i just bought all five issues of the bitch planet triple feature on kindle 😍 thank you for inspiring to check out what I've missed! It was on my pull list when we lived in Canada and i miss having a comic shop where i can keep up with new releases. Ecomics aren't my favourite plus BP has great paper but ouf. New comics! 2y

I‘ve got 99 books but a bitch ain‘t one...oh, wait. A bitch is one.

I amuse myself.

Also, I‘m off work next week for a much needed mental health staycation so hopefully that number will go WAY down. I blame my kids for a lot of them. 😉

Finished Bitch Planet Vol. 2, and only have one chapter left of The New Jim Crow. Unfortunately didn‘t get to the Ward, but it‘s beer o‘clock here in Singapore and also time for dinner, so I‘m calling it a day #readathon @DeweysReadathon

BTW enjoyed BP2 a lot, better than vol. 1!

Jumping in late on #readathon! I was invited to dinner last-minute and I don‘t like to turn down opps to go out and be social, then just got into bed. I‘ll start with Bitch Planet v.2!

1. Singapore | 2. Just looking forward to meeting some goals! | 3. Salted egg yolk crispy fish skins | 4. I‘m an artist (pencil drawings) | 5. Actually READ this time! Notorious for great intentions but not following through 🤷‍♀️
