Review:  ★★★☆☆

Sometimes I have to re-read a comic a second to see if I’ve understood it or if I even enjoyed what I read. Bitch Planet is a story that is very compelling as it hark-ins back to stories like Hunger Games and Girls in Prison. One of the primary characters was killed previously which has caused massive riots. There are other underhanded dealings that are the beginnings of the revolution to bring the return of free will. The characters are willing to make sacrifices for its cause. I must admit I hate jumping into any story that’s 10 issues in and I feel I’ve seen this story at one point in time. The artwork has an excellent use of darks and shadows to create the environment. The book has somewhat of a cult following that is really prevalent in the liner notes at the back of the book. The interesting part of all that is the Compliant Woman’s Weekly guide at the end. All this makes BP a story that could be worth catching up with at some point.
