OR – Bitch Planet Release Party


Press Release:

Kelly Sue DeConnick is coming to Floating World on Wednesday, October 7th at 6:00 PM to celebrate the release of BITCH PLANET Vol. 1: EXTRAORDINARY MACHINE!

Eisner Award-nominated writer KELLY SUE DeCONNICK (PRETTY DEADLY, Captain Marvel) and VALENTINE DE LANDRO (X-Factor) team up to bring you the premiere volume of BITCH PLANET, a deliciously vicious riff on women-in-prison sci-fi exploitation. In a future just a few years down the road in the wrong direction, a woman’s failure to comply with her patriarchal overlords will result in exile to the meanest penal planet in the galaxy. When the newest crop of fresh femmes arrive, can they work together to stay alive or will hidden agendas, crooked guards and the deadliest sport on (or off!) Earth take them to their maker? Think Margaret Atwood meets Inglourious Basterds. This volume collects issues 1-5.

Kelly Sue DeConnick began her comics career writing the English adaptations of Japanese manga for Tokyopop and VIZ. After 7 years and more than 10,000 pages on books like Slam Dunk, Blue Spring and Sexy Voice And Robo, she transitioned to American comics with 30 Days of Night: Eben And Stella at IDW and Osborn: Evil Incarcerated at Marvel. Today, DeConnick is well-known in the mainstream market as the force behind Carol Danvers’ reinvention as Captain Marvel (the book that gave rise to the Carol Corps) and as the first female writer of an ongoing Avengers title in Avengers Assemble.

In 2013, DeConnick debuted on the independent scene in a big way with PRETTY DEADLY, a brutal mythological Western co-created with Spanish artist Emma Ríos. Hot on the heels of that critical and commercial success, DeConnick and co-creator Valentine De Landro masterminded the sci-fi kidney-punch called BITCH PLANET. This ongoing series has been met with rave reviews since its debut in December 2014.
