Kelly Sue DeConnick has done great character analyses in other series and that talent is on full display here. We get a good look at Penny's formative years and see how she's been triply-cursed, being a woman, not White and overweight in a society that shuns BBWs. Ironically, this personally focused story does a better job of displaying the culture of Bitch Planet than the first two issues or at least in showcasing the problems such a world poses for non-compliant women.
Robert Wilson IV handles the artwork this time around and proves a capable substitute for Valentine De Landro. Wilson's style is reminiscent of Mike Allred's, but with a gritty edge that does not diminish its clarity in the least. All in all, the artwork is once again a match for DeConnick's writing and this series continues to be one of the best comics in existence.
