Ever since Bitch Planet came out, it quickly gathered a fan base excited about it's feminist take on the exploitation story so prevalent in American cinema in the 1960s and 70s. Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick crafts a great send up of the genre with her story of a prison planet whose inmates are non-compliant women. It spawned a spin off anthology, Bitch Planet: Triple Feature that gave other creators a swing at the world created by DeConnick and tell stories of their own. Now the first five issues of the anthology are being collected and should be stores in time for Christmas.
