Welcome to the LGN Comics Cubby! Each month we will share two comic recommendations with you that can be found on the shelf at Happy Harbor Comics.
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?
If you like this: keep reading the series in trade paper back! We also recommend much of Kelly-Sue DeConnick’s writing work such as CAPTAIN MARVEL with David López by Kelly-Sue and Emma Ríos for a supernatural trip that is beautiful and bewildering.Lee Loughridge for a superhero story and PRETTY DEADLY
MIND MGMT, Volume One: The Manager
Reporting on a commercial flight where everyone aboard lost their memories, a young journalist stumbles onto a much bigger story – the top-secret Mind Management program. Her ensuing journey involves weaponized psychics, hypnotic advertising, talking dolphins, and seemingly immortal pursuers, as she attempts to find the flight’s missing passenger, the man who was MIND MGMT’s greatest success – and its most devastating failure. But in a world where people can rewrite reality itself, can she trust anything she sees?
If you like this: there is much more mystery to explore in Matt Kindt’s world of MIND MGMT. You may also enjoy THE MASSIVE by by Brian Wood (Goodreads Author), Kristian Donaldson (Illustrator), Garry Brown (Illustrator) and COPPERHEAD by Jay Faerber , Scott Godlewski , Ron Riley , Thomas Mauer
