Included in this collection of Gregory's legendary Naughty Bits comic book series is the classic "Fallout," in which Bitchy Bitch believes she is going into menopause, causing her to flash back to her childhood in the 1960s, complete with memories of bomb shelters, school, and backstabbing kiddies. "Adult-Erated" provides more insight into the past of comicdom's only permanently PO'd and PMS'd protagonist, focusing on Bitchy's post-college years, including her first apartment. The title strip, "Burn, Bitchy, Burn," centers on "Witchy Bitch," a 12th Century medicine woman and dead ringer for Bitchy Bitch. Accused of being a witch and sentenced to burning at the stake, Witchy feels no less oppressed by her society than her future counterpart, to say the least. But is she really a witch? These classic Gregory strips are supplemented with an all-new strip created especially for this collection, making Burn Bitchy Burn a smoldering standard-bearer of feminist-themed comic art.
