The first issue of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro’s feminist sci-fi exploitation riff slated for second printing
“The feminist comic book we’ve all been waiting for.” —Vox.com
“Sharply written, emotionally charged… A heck of a book.” —IGN
“An immensely refreshing read.” —The Onion’s A.V. Club

Kelly Sue DeConnick (PRETTY DEADLY) and Valentine De Landro’s (X-Factor) highly anticipated BITCH PLANET hit stores and lit up social media with its #noncompliant message and its show-stopping storyline. Now it’s being fast-tracked to a second printing in order to meet customer demand.
A science fiction take on the Women-in-Prison exploitation cinema trope, BITCH PLANET follows five prisoners on an all-female penal planet, ready to make their escape by way of a gladiatorial exhibition against a team of visiting male prisoners. There are five women—all ridiculous and real—and all very different. One shouldn’t be there. The other four are unrepentant and guilty as Hell.
BITCH PLANET #1 remains available for purchase across all digital platforms, including the Image Comics website (imagecomics.com), the official Image Comics iOS app, Comixology’s website (comixology.com), iOS, Android, and Google Play.
