2014 Best Writer Eisner Award nominee KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (PRETTY DEADLY, Captain Marvel) and VALENTINE DE LANDRO (X-Factor) team up for the very third time to bring you the premiere issue of BITCH PLANET, their highly-anticipated women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation riff. Think Margaret Atwood meets Inglourious Basterds.
”Think Margaret Atwood meets Inglourious Basterds.”
“Are you happy that you influenced a lot of people?” The answer is, I am a human being, what do you want me to say? Yeah I’m happy, sure! I’m happy because nothing I did was a mistake. I was fighting against the system all the time. They put me in jail, it was a war. I believe in art. We can’t have truth, because truth is so difficult. But we can have beauty. My obsession is to give to you something different. When civilization ends, Greece, Egypt, India—the only thing that endures is art. A country that does not have art despairs. War is not beautiful. Banks are not beautiful. Architecture used to have a lot of style, not anymore. Religion is not beautiful. Politics is not beautiful. What is beautiful now? Tell me. What is beautiful now?”
— Alejandro Jodorowsky
