Emily Rauber Rodriguez (University of Southern California) examines the methods Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro have used in Bitch Planet to critique and revise the message of exploitation films for a more diverse audience and the essentiality of the comics medium to that critique. Ayanni C. Hanna uses feminist science fiction critique, coupled with close readings and a creator interview, to examine the ways Alessandro Barbucci and Barbara Canepa in Sky Doll question and deconstruct the common perceptions of both "woman" and "human" while also forcing readers to examine not only their understanding of normalcy, but the binaries they've come to rely upon. Using David Coon's critique of suburbia, Michele Brittany (Fanboy Comics) examines the suburban American Dream in Dark Horse's Lady Killer through the familial unit, representations of gender, and the concept of tradition.
