Bitch Planet #1
DeConnik has really brought out the big gun with this one. She's developed an awesome set of characters and played a little game of misdirection. As far as first issues go, this one is the kind that makes you immediately call your local shop and add the series to your subscription box. This is what I'm always talking about that so few people can actually deliver.
Everyone knows how I prefer to escape into a horror or science fiction book rather than dwindle in less fictional stories. Yet as a female it's hard to connect with many of the characters. Sure, there are plenty of female characters in horror and science fiction but many of them are written as plot devices, or are there to allow an artist the chance to draw some voluptuous siren for the male audience to wack off too. It's not too often that you get well defined female characters. It's certainly not that often that they are in the forefront so I'm really excited about Bitch Planet. I've already set my favor to a few characters.
