I was so surprised by where this volume went! It was really exciting! Looking forward to the next one!
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.
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!! 😊👍❤️📚🤷🏽♀️
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.
P.S. Lola is disappointed that the bitches aren‘t pugs.
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.
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. 😍

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 🤷♀️
