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.
BITCH PLANET #1, 2nd printing arrives in stores on 2/11 and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code DEC148092.
BITCH PLANET #2 hits stands on 1/28 and can be ordered with Diamond Code NOV140643.
