This chapter examines the innovative use of the back matter (especially the lettercol) by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro in their Bitch Planet series as a space to educate readers and grow fans sensitive to and affirmative of intersectional identities. For Gray, the space of the lettercols, normally a throwaway space, becomes a site not only to grow new intersectional-positive audiences but also to challenge the formal conventions comics themselves.
