    Combining these elements, the first issue of the "President Bitch" arc hits all the right emotional notes, twists the plot, and continues its scathing critique of societal inequities. Read Full Review

    Powerful, and heart rending, DeConnick and De Landro continue to stamp their feminist agendas on the pages of Bitch Planet as issue #7 lays the groundwork for the new arc without neglecting to pick up any loose ends from issues #5 and #6. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Carrie McClain Feb 24, 2016

    Kudos to yet another well-written issue that is perfected by the art, inking, and coloring that takes these characters to a new level in storytelling where the subversive keep striking back when they get knocked down. A particular scene in this issue revolves around Kam and Penny in which I dissected in further detail will be available for your reading pleasure in a few days, It especially made this issue shine for me and helped make it my favorite issue yet.

    Maybe BITCH PLANET #7 isn't packed to the gills with explicit action and political furor, but where it succeeds is in articulating where these characters are at now and how the events up until now have shaped them. It doesn't hit as hard as other issues, but like any great story, not every chapter should. This issue is filled with enough misogyny and mystery to make you want to pick up the next issue to find out what comes next, and that's just A-OK. After all, these ladies don't owe you a damn thing.

    Outright Geekery - Amani Cooper Feb 19, 2016

    Valentine Delandro's cover and art of this book is really great. The backgrounds have good details. The shadows are great, but in some places in looked reall out of place. In one page, Whitney is in a room full of bright white screens, but almost half her face is in shadow. I think the black can be eased up a bit. There seemed to be a bit of anatomical wonkiness, for lack of better words. It could have been shown in perspective, but it still looked short. However, I love the style and its sorta roughness.

    Graphic Policy - Ashley Leckwold Feb 18, 2016

    With the start of a new arc, Bitch Planet is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. Even in an issue setting up the building blocks for the rest of the arc, it still feels like a gut punch as the fallout from Meikos death takes center stage. I would hope that it doesnt take anyone else in the process, but that would be tempting fate just a bit too much in a book where the ones in charge of the world it exists in see lives as disposable when they dont fit into the neat boxes prescribed for existence.

    Flickering Myth - Zeb Larson Feb 19, 2016

    So, maybe this will be the new pace for Bitch Planet? I probably shouldn't get my hopes up, and in any event I can't complain because the book is so good"but I can dream. Read Full Review
