Hour 6 challenge: excuse myself I just woke up. But here is my first and, so far, only tattoo from the incomparable Bitch Planet. I got it done 2 years ago, after I turned 30. I wanted it for at least 5 years before I committed to getting it permanently put on my body. I have no regrets because I will always be noncompliant.

This internet recommendation was on the nose for me. A Handmaid‘s Tale by a more aggressive name will smell as sweet, and the same dystopian gender fuckery drives the comic, in a satire that‘s so real.

So while trying to avoid the book I eventually bailed on I read this graphic novel that I loved! This is awesome. Men take over the planet, non-compliant women get sent to a prison off planet, lovingly called bitch planet! Loved it🌹

The snarky fake ads in this book alone are worth the read. Book is about a future in which non-compliment women are shipped off to a prison planet. The dialogue is brilliant, but the story can be a bit hard to follow. I‘m going to give this another read in a few months.

Such an amazing and thought provoking comic! I love how the little details in the background build the world. Although, more delicate members of the family are a bit shocked by the name!

Thoughtfully crafted and illustrated feminist dystopian "Orange is the New Black." The art and ideas satire the camp of 70s grindhouse and blaxplotation flicks, but never to the detriment of the strong underlying messages. The end began to lose me a bit when the murder sport storyline began, and not enough weight was given to character deaths for me to care much about them. It looks as though the series has since been abandoned, which is a shame.

“Sport builds character. The ancient Greeks believed athletic prowess an indicator of moral authority.”

“They also believed their gods lived on a mountain and that trouble was caused by little men with horse dicks and pan flutes. Don‘t make it clever just ‘cause it‘s old.”

Intersectional feminism. Non compliance. Science fiction. I'm on again off again with comics. But this, I just really appreciate the subtleties, little breadcrumbs.

And here we are, a nod to the handmaids.

Pretty good, I like the satirical concept and how unashamed they are to call people on their bullshit. I will probably read the rest of them and I'm not really a comic person.

1. Tough one...right now I‘d have to say it‘s a Wonder Woman/Black Panther tie.

2. ?

3. I didn‘t read a lot of comics before Litsy, but even then it was Image, and as Litsy has widened my must reads....it‘s still a lot of Image. Walking Dead, Bitch Planet, PaperGirls, Saga! Second place probably would go to Marvel just because I‘m really enjoying the Ms Marvel series at the moment.

Gezemice I am the same, started reading comics mostly because of Litsy (and Goodreads), and the ones you mentioned! 2y

So many Littens who read graphic novels liked this so I decided to check it out. Its world, where women are sent to jail for such crimes as disrespect of male authorities and being old or fat, is anger-inducing, but the story is powerful and I‘m rooting for the inmates of Bitch Planet. I can‘t go on to vol 2 just yet, though; I need something lighter.

The #bandwagon quiz-o-the-week is pretty spot on except it says that I'm not likely to get emotional, or recognize and deal with emotion in others. But this graphic novel gave me plenty of rage, of the kind lately reserved for reading the news, or the bi-monthly watching of Handmaids Tale (any more is too intense for me). Penny was an obv fav, but I didn't realize I'd invested in the other chars-Until the last frame. Satire so sharp it cuts, here.

I am really trying to broaden my horizons with graphic novels and some manga reads. I typically done read anyone these. However lately I have read the March series by John Lewis and Locke and Key by Joe Hill and loved both. So I wanna hear, what graphic novels do you love and recommend I try?

TsundokuAleax I love Monstress and Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur. I have also enjoyed Wayward and Skull Kickers (especially if you are into RPG or tabletop gaming). Ms. Marvel is also fun and timely. I am sure I will think of others. If you have a good comic shop nearby, they can help. 2y
LiteraryinLititz Depending on if you like things for younger audiences, I recommend Roller Girl and the Phoebe and her Unicorn series. 2y
Karkar I like Giant Days, Saga, Chew, I Hate Fairyland, Gwenpoole 2y

Susannah The Wicked + The Divine has an interesting premise and phenomenal art. 2y
Jess Saga and Paper Girls are musts. I really liked Coffin Hill and I Hate Fairyland is hilarious (but extremely violent). My Favorite Thing is Monsters is also fantastic. Many of these are on Hoopla too. 2y
BookaholicNatty I love all of these!!!! I am adding them all to my tbr!! If you all think of anymore or come across new ones that are good please come back and let me know!!! ❤️ 2y

The spice shaker of comic books selected this for me to read. I'm pretty excited. I've been looking forward to giving this series a try.

I'm trying to keep up with my reading this month, but I'm afraid I won't read anywhere near where I planned. Life keeps trying to knock me down. First all the crap with my ex, then my job situation, now more ex-fiancee crap.

I'm hoping I can push through as I'm really excited about my planned reading.

“Seduction and disappointment.”
It gives me the worst sort of chills to read this “criminal act” and think, I could absolutely see that in our future right now. When men popularize bullshit like “friendzone,” and don‘t understand that “I don‘t want to” doesn‘t mean “aggressively try again in five minutes,” this is what we‘re headed for.
