    Overall, Bitch Planet #9 packs a punch! Its a well thought out and stimulating read. I feel like a lot of love and dedication has gone into this story and the women within it. Its confronting and inspiring at the same time and that itself makes it an important comic to read. I find that I take my time reading each new issue of Bitch Planet and I also enjoyreading all of the political and though-provoking essays and interviews at the end of the issue. DeConnick tears down those boundaries that make a lot of people uncomfortable and in doing so creates a truly unique story, filled with powerful characters. I just love this series and this issue is another great instalment to this epic story. Read Full Review

    I can't guarantee that it will give you hope"but I can can say it will inspire you on how these folks find themselves and join together and if that's what we all need about now"Also since BP doesn't come out as often as other books, this issue right here is a great reminder how just why this book is on your pull list/reading list. And for all those who aren't sure if they want to be non-compliant or those who don't want to add to your pull list"here's your affirmation to do so and join the rest of us. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Nov 7, 2016

    With an eye toward bigger narrative spaces and blood on its knuckles Bitch Planet #9 is a worthy return for the hit series. Kelly Sue DeConnick, Valentine De Lando, and Kelly Fitzpatrick prove that the time between issues hasn't dulled their focus on the cast nor their sharp storytelling. #9 positions the title to go from big to grand as it expands its scope, armed with a diverse compelling cast and Margaret Atwood level satire. The fight for the ACO may be ongoing but Bitch Planet #9 is a decisive victory in the name of non compliance. Read Full Review

    There's no denying this book's impact is best felt in trade, but that doesn't make its return any less welcome. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Robert Larson Nov 4, 2016

    This was the first issue of Bitch Planet that has failed to grab or affect me in a really strong way. Every issue is so visceral and so full of subtext, references to the present, and complicated intersectional feminism that I always have plenty to think about when I finish the issue. But I finished reading this particular issue, and it had no real impact on me. It just advances the plot, and it doesn't even do that to the normal standards of Bitch Planet. Perhaps it's just an off issue? I hope so. Read Full Review
