Image Comics has announced the upcoming release of Bitch Planet: Triple Feature, a new anthology series featuring satirical stories born from the pages of Bitch Planet.
Ripped directly from the world of BITCH PLANET, a crack team of creators spin three teeth-clenching tales of rage, revolution, and ridicule—plus essays, a letter column, and more! BITCH PLANET: TRIPLE FEATURE #1 includes Windows, by Cheryl Lynn Eaton and Maria Fröhlich; Without and Within, by Andrew Aydin and Joanna Estep; and The Invisible Woman, written by Conley Lyons with art by Craig Yeung; all with lettering by Clayton Cowles.
“For me, the most fascinating thing about working on the anthology has been that very few of the initial pitches that came in were satirical,” said DeConnick. “Most were heavy (tonally) and very straight-forward, which made me reconsider our approach to the main title—because these young people were pitching based on what they perceived our tone to be. We got there—some of them are so on point that I’m jealous!—but the fact that we had to develop to get to satire tells me that we haven’t been hitting our mark on the main title and that we will need to push harder going forward. Satire is difficult. And it’s particularly tough to sustain long-form. So that’s at the forefront of my mind right now. I love this book. I wish we’d done it sooner.”
Bitch Planet: Triple Feature #1 is set for release on Wednesday, June 14th.
