Image Comics has announced that Kelly Sue DeConnick and Taki Soma are set to release a stand alone issue of Bitch Planet in January.
In BITCH PLANET #6, Meiko Maki’s past is uncovered: how she went from promising engineer to killer—and the ace up her sleeve.
“I’ve wanted to work with Taki since we met, and Val and I were so pleased when she agreed to take on Bitch Planet,” said DeConnick in a press release to the press. “Her art style matches Meiko’s personality, I think. There’s a vulnerability to it, an honesty, buffered with a sense of humor—which I think is critical for this title. And that’s not an easy thing to balance. Val makes it look effortless, but it’s not. Taki was able to step into our world and meld beautifully, and at the same time, entirely be herself.”
Fans of Bitch Planet will want to pick up the new issue when it arrives in stores on January 6th.
