This piece in Ms Magazine on the feminist scifi comic Bitch Planet was so interesting!
Basically, Bitch Planet is a feminist sci-fi nerd’s Holy Grail. Adding to what is already a stacked lineup of feminist fist-pump-worthy moments, the end of each issue includes a feminist guest essay and the back page is filled with retro-style ads for humorous and ironic mail-order merchandise (that you can actually order!) My favorites include NC temporary tattoos for girls who want “that sexy, his-blood-in-a-bottle-around-your-neck CRAZY CHICK mystique…PUT IT ON YOUR FACE” and X-Ray Specs to see through a man’s intentions.
