The first volume of Bitch Planet
This new volume also feels like it became less of an ensemble female cast and more of a panoramic view with a strong focus on one particular character. It is not a bad thing: in fact, I'd say that it's starting to feel like I know where the story is going as the author's vision for it becomes more and more clear. One can see the seeds of revolution.
I first described Bitch Planet as “Orange is the New Black in space and without Piper”, with a story that focuses primarily on the marginalised characters and it remains an apt description. The most important thing though is Bitch Planet is an overtly intersectional, brutally honest, no holds-barred, angry feminist comics. There are also tons of extra materials-lots of meta commentary on our present time-that are as important and exciting as the comics itself. I highly recommend it.
Rating: 8 - Excellent

Kelly Sue Deconnick is known for her work at Marvel. This is her best work though, and will probably inspire the next generation of female writers. Other reviewers and even some critics have complained that the plot is confusing - well, the series begins in medias res, and Ms. Deconnick's style is to both tell the story going forward but also give us background details (and flashback issues, like #6 (which begins this trade)).
Valentine De Landro, the artist and co-creator, does a nice job with the art. They compliment each other quite well.
The absolute strength of this series though, are the fake ads at the end of each issue. They are social, commercial, and political commentaries disguised as ads. I've been impressed and amused by them in both the first trade and now this one. Ms. Deconnick is wry, sarcastic and confrontational. Some people would be very turned off by reading them (America's 45th President, for example). I'll buy the next trade and I look forward to learning more about Bitch Planet, both moving forward and its past, but those ads...wow.
