    Valentine De Landro does well to keep his art simple and not take away from the story. I'm not saying that it isn't something to stop and look at because that would be a lie. All I'm saying is that De Landro doesn't get caught up in too many details. This is a good thing to me because this story is becoming heavier and it's nice to be able to breeze through and not get stuck admiring. Pleases not that I love De Landro's art. The almost rough shapes of the bodies and the Kelly Fitzpatrick's colors are certainly a unique style. The diversity of characters is nothing to scoff at. It is really boring when all your characters have the same body type and look to them. When the introduction of new characters, I look forward to seeing what else De Landro will cook up for us.

    Overall I found this issue of Bitch Planet to be an exciting and intriguing read. This really is a comic that engages the reader on an emotional and often confronting level. It forces us to question not only the dystopian world in Bitch Planet but also the world we live in today, as its ultimately a reflection of that. Its refreshing to see a comic that openly embraces themes, concepts, people and politics that are too often underrepresented today. Its time we embrace storytelling like this and enjoy the complex characters and dynamic themes that it offers us. I cant wait to see where the next issue takes us, as I can only imagine that its going to get hectic. Well done guys, Im thoroughly hooked! Read Full Review

    While Bitch Planet # 8 continues to provide a spotlight for a powerful feminist message too little seen in comics, it's also a brilliantly well-crafted issue that highlights the power of simple, old-fashioned, well-crafted comic book storytelling. It's a great issue. Read Full Review

    Ok, I've written too much about this book again. It's just so good, though, and as it adds scholarly analysis on top of its parables and parallels, there's always more to discuss. Take another three months if need be, Bitch Planet. This is the best book being published right now. Read Full Review

    A new issue of "Bitch Planet" is reason to celebrate, and "Bitch Planet" #8 is no exception to that. DeConnick, De Landro and Fitzpatrick challenge their readers each issue, and "Bitch Planet" #8 rewards those who step up to the plate. Wherever the series is going next, I'm eager to find out.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jun 23, 2016

    Bitch Planet #8 is one of those issues that's impossible to unpack over a single read through. Not only is it dense narratively " particularly so given the now expected delay between issues " but also topically, with an added focus put on the treatment of the prison's transgender inmates.
